"The Democrats can prove that everybody who voted for Ralph Nader was right." - A Molly Ivans peice.
I read that piece by Molly Ivins. It is excellent. She tells it like it is:
"The Democrats in the U.S. Senate have an unusual opportunity coming up in the next few weeks. One could even call it unique, if unique were not a forbidden word in newspapers. The Democrats can prove that everybody who voted for Ralph Nader was right...

It seems to me that between what the "bipartisan" Establishment is doing in Washington and the "bipartisan" Establishment is doing in Sacramento that is is really a patriotic duty to fight these crooks with every fiber of our being.
