On Friday, July 9th, on National Public Radio, Ralph Nader is going to debate Howard Dean.
Maybe now someone will publicly defrock Nader for the megalomaniac he's become, especially since it's mostly Republicans propping up his campaign as a Kerry spoiler.
Personally, I can't wait.
Check your local listings.
[UPDATE]: So, here are the goods - a streaming audio of the debate.
I'd like to say that the moderator, Margo Adler, should be fired. Her attempts to defuse the debate with her frivolous questions just as it was getting juicy were really starting to tick me off.
The more I listen to him, the more Nader sounds like Rorschach from Watchmen:
"No. Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise."
Then again, most of Nader's big checks are also coming from people who've contributed to Bush this year, too. I guess his principles do have a price.
But I think Dean said it best:
"When the house is on fire, it's not the time to fix the furniture".
