Dance With The One That Brung You

Salon.com Politics | Unsafe in any state: revisiting the argument that a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush. It's still crap. If Gore wants those votes, maybe he should figure out why Nader is getting them to begin with. I don't want to see Bush appoint another Scalia or Thomas to the Supreme Court; however, I think it's worse in the long run to argue that our country doesn't need a change from the two-party system, that a third party is a waste of time, that a Bush or a Gore is the best we can hope for ... let's face it, sacrificing Nader on Gore's altar just sets the stage for doing the same thing every four years ad infinitum. The Republican candidate is always going to be crypto-fascist bullethead and it's never going to be "safe" to vote for a true progressive. If we get Bush as a result, then we get what we deserved and maybe Alec Baldwin will get the last laugh as he jets off to Paris.
