New Ideas From Ralphie

Ralph Nader, the former presidential candidate, environmentalist, and consumer rights activist, recently wrote a letter to the chairman of the Philadelphia Eagles, Jeffrey Lurie, to protest the recent suspension of Terrell Owens, the Eagles star wide receiver. As an Eagles fan, I obviously recognize this issue as one of the most important ones facing our country, however, I don't feel that Nader approached it well.

Nader writes that the Eagles were acting against Owens' right to free speech. Yes, Owens has a right to free speech, and that's why he's not serving his suspension in prison but in a $3 million mansion. Secondly, I'd be interested to know if Nader has ever fired anyone. If one of his campaign workers announced that he in fact supported another candidate, and not Nader, would he still be paid or allowed to keep his position on the Nader team?

Can Ralph Nader be anymore out of touch with society.

Than say....Sen. Arlen Specter, who (almost) went to bat for T.O.

My question is, why does Ralph Nader think he's still relevant?

This guy's like an obnoxious party guest who doesn't know when it's time to shut his yap and go the hell home.
