Get Out, Mr. Nader (Whiner alert!)
OPINION JOURNAL ^ | 02-28-04 | KARENNA GORE SCHIFF

You're only fueling defeatism--and you defeated my father.

Watching Ralph Nader declare his candidacy was like having a terrible flashback. Oh no--not this again! I'm not saying we should muzzle independent voices or rule out third parties. Mr. Nader has a right to run for president. And I have a right to say, What an awful idea.

Ms. Gore Schiff is director of community affairs for the Association to Benefit Children.

Geez! She's the what for who? Isn't that exactly the sort of useless, make believe job you'd expect a prominent politician's daughter to snag?

So Nader may draw a few votes away from Lurch. Boo-hoo. We Republicans got screwed by Perot twice. (Didn't we? I can't remember if the little weirdo made it all the way to the actual election in '96.) It's only fair the Dems get screwed twice in return.

I seem to remember that she did have something to do with daddy's campaign, but I'm not sure in what capacity.

KARENNA is just mad that her father's loss means she will not get a multi-million dollar book deal. [sniff, sniff]

Wasn't she the one who hired Naomi Wolfe to change AlGore's wardrobe to earth tones?

Since George W. Bush took office, a budget surplus of $230 billion has become a deficit of $521 billion, 2.7 million jobs have been lost, clean air standards have been weakened, civil liberties have been trampled, long-time allies have come to mistrust us, and we've spent $150 billion and almost 600 lives in a war to protect us from weapons that didn't exist. Given the extremism of Mr. Bush's first term, imagine what a lame duck Bush would do.

Thank God Bush WON the office! If you're bumbling, Iced tea drinkin, buddist temple supporting father would have won these number you've so sparsely quoted, would be at least double!!

Man are these people absolutely empty headed food trough wafflers!

Too bad your father supported such a loser, reflecting on him greatly!

Just think Karrena, if your daddy had only carried his home state, we wouldn't be having this discussion.

That ol' Sore Loserman spirit is still alive and whining, I see.

Karenna is obviously still in a snit about the FReepers who kept the "Get Out of Cheney's House" vigil outside the VEEP's residence in 12/00.

Donna Brazille ran it. Karenna just meddled in it. They're both losers though.

Dear Karenna:

Your dad ran the worse campaign in my life (LibKill b.1957).

He was worst than Mondale, worse than Dole!

He couldn't even carry your 'home state' of Tennessee.

Did Nadir (misspelling intentional) help defeat your dad? Sure he did, but his play was nowhere near as effective as Ross Perot's vote-splitting of '92 and '96.

Your dad is a loser, and so are you. Get used to it.

Drink cheap wine.

Mr. Nader said he expected to draw the majority of his voters from defecting Bush supporters.

That's absolutely correct! Seriously, Ralph, run. I was a Bush supporter, but I'm so disillusioned about the WMDs, and the way Bush stole Florida, and how he lost all those jobs and destroyed the economy and hates children and all that stuff, so I'll vote for you instead of him. Really. I swear.

If you're bumbling,...

Didn't he "sell" his vote on the Gulf War I to the highest "primetime-facetime" bidder?

I wonder who's dumb enough to buy what Karenna's selling?

Unlike her father, she's not a member of that exclusive shakedown club of 100, like her father was.

Oh, the fence sitters that sell their votes.

Nader gives honest liberals a choice. I don't believe in any of Nader's socialist/communist ideals, but at least he is honest about them. Sore, Loserman, and Jean F'n Carrie are not.

Yes, Perot stayed in the race in 1996 until election day, and got 8 million votes (vs. almost 20 million in 1992). I don't think he affected the outcome in 1996, other than maybe keeping Clinton under 50% of the popular vote.

On election day 2000, a nice shiny van that the Rats leased picked up my grandmother and a few of her friends. "The people in the van were very nice", she told me. They gave her a sandwich, bag of chips and a soda. They explained to her that GWB was a menace and that Gore would do more for seniors. All she had to do was after going into the voting booth, pick the line that said Gore and vote. Which for the price of a sandwich and a lie she did.

Only one thing went wrong. The line they told her to choose wasn't Al Gore. It was Pat Buchanan. Al Gores own people could not understand the concept of a butterfly ballot and told the seniors to vote for Buchanan.

I love when cheaters get cheated.

I still laugh when I think that Al 'Earth in the Lurch' Gore lost votes to someone from the Green party.

Here is an interesting thread about Naomi Wolf. What a nutcase she and her supporters on the left are. She is making a major big deal about some dirty old man making a pass at her twenty years ago.

I don't know what really happened to Wolf twenty years ago, but it seems she was as woefully lacking in common sense then as she is now. To wit -- it's probably not a very good idea for a college student to invite a professor over for a candlelight dinner for two, unless she's trying to seduce him.

Actually the commies/socialists in Florida cost Algore the state. Even without the colorblind Green (Red) Party. Add up the votes from the Worker's World Party, Socialist Party, and Socialist Worker's Party and he would have won.

Monica Moorehead WW 1,805 votes
David McReynolds Soc 618 votes
James Harris SWP 558 votes

Total commie votes that could have gone to Albert Gore Junior: 2981

Add in the 97,421 votes Ralphie Boy got and the tilt to the extreme left the Democrats have been engaging in since 1968 and this country is dangerously close to going communist (even if it is called by the liberal code word "progressive").

Third Party candidates are only "appreciated" when they siphon votes from the Republican Party.

Yes Perot botched the results of 2 elections. Bill Clinton never received 50% of the vote (so much for his "mandate"). George W. Bush received more total votes than Bill Clinton did in either of his elections.

The "popular vote" from 2000 is a hollow victory for the Dims. Albert Gore Junior's lead was 0.52% (half of 1 percent). Well within the margin of error. Since there was no national recount (and a number of states signed off on the vote tallies before all of the absentee ballots came in) as well as admitted fraud (college students voting for Gore at home and school, college kids going to the polls several times to vote for Gore) and the usual dead voters, that 0.52% marginal win means nothing. We will never know who won the popular vote with any certainty. We can only accept the official numbers which were signed off on across the country.

I would say that there is no reason to ever sign off on the numbers early just because a state is not in contention necessitating a recount. BS statistics like the 2000 Popular Vote give evidence why every vote needs to be counted in every state.
