Finally someone who understands "the interplay between politics and economics." Thanks so much for explaining it to me. :-|

Who does that Nader guy think he is anyway -- refusing to step aside and let the real candidates buy their way into the White House? What a nuisance. To think that he actually wanted to become the first U.S. President in history who isn't owned by some corporation or other special interest? What kind of a politician actually spends his entire career working for the people!?! The nerve! You'd think he was trying to inject some integrity into the process or something. Or worse, he might actually think that the good ole' two party system that has hampered real progressive reform in this country for at least a century could use some improvement! What gall. After all, where would this country be without corporate greed and partisan politics-as-usual? Why, just the thought is positively un-American! The Republicans and Democrats don't need Ralph Nader's help to screw up elections (not to mention the environment). They can do that just fine by themselves!

(Who would be happy to give you a list of Nader's corporate backers for you to boycott -- except, go figure, he didn't accept any.)
