Nader Knocked Off Ballot in Ohio

Third party candidate Ralph Nader lost his last hope to get on the Ohio Presidential ballot today. The state had previously removed Nader from the ballot, but last friday Nader appealed the decision to the US Supreme Court. The case was reviewed by Justice Stevens who passed the case along to the full court. Today, the court rejected Nader's appeal without comment.

The decision is a huge boost to Senator Kerry's campaign. Ohio is one of the three key swing states (along with Florida and Pennsylvania) which will likely determine the outcome of the election. Despite pathetic claims to the contrary, Mr. Nader appears to be going out of his way to ensure a Bush victory.

Four years ago, Mr. Nader insisted on campaigning continuously in swing states leading up to the election (including Florida) and he is doing the same this year. Additional, Mr. Nader's campaign has largely been funded by the Republicans -- a fact he is completely aware of. The reason for Mr. Nader's ridiculous behaviour is anyone's guess, but today's court decision will go a long way to negating his impact in this election.

For once I agree with the Democrats. Ralph Nader is a nut job, he has no business running for any kind of office.

Thank god. I don't know what happened to Nader, he used to be a great consumer advocate. Now he's turned into a right wing whore.
