Dear Ralph: Go Away!

Monday, February 25th, 2008

I used to think Ralph Nader keeps running for president because he’s an egomaniac and a blowhard.  But I’m starting to suspect that he suffers from Dubya-disease — he needs to feel relevant. 

And now it’s time for a limerick:

Dear Ralph: Go Away!
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Ralph Nader has surfaced again
To proclaim he’s a prince among men
And our nation’s salvation.
Give up your fixation,
Ralph. Find a new hobby. Try zen.

For more Ralph Nader humor, check out Ralph Nader, ‘Unsafe At Any Age,’ by Don Davis and Nader Announces Plan To Wreck Election, But Prominent Crackpots Are Cool To Bid, by Andy Borowitz. And for a serious take on the topic, there’s Ralph Nader, Tragedy And Farce, by Dick Polman.

Suffering From Bloomberg-Envy … Or Just an Idiotic Egomaniac?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Oh, lovely! Ralph Nader  is threatening to run for President again:

Suffering From Bloomberg-Envy … Or Just an Idiotic Egomaniac? 
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Seems that throwing elections is fun
For Ralph Nader, who’s threat’ning to run
Once again in ’08.
So I’m angry, irate—
That’s how Bush got his place in the sun.
