Don’t worry, Ralph, the GOP gots you covered.
First graph says it all:
Consumer advocate Ralph Nader’s quixotic presidential campaign says it submitted about 5,400 signatures to get on the Michigan ballot, far short of the required number of 30,000. Luckily for him, approximately 43,000 signatures were filed by Michigan Republicans on his behalf, more than meeting the requirement.
Clearly the Republicans see Nader as part of the team. While Bush seeks to gain ground from the right side, Nader slices off some from the left side. A political pincer movement! I love it!
