Nader Zings the Washington Post

Earlier this week, after meeting with independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader, the Washington Post decided that it would not cover his campaign. The Post's rationale: there is no way that Nader could win the election. Despite this black-balling of a candidate whose campaign represents a left-wing challenge to the two-party stranglehold (read: consensus) on politics, Nader came up with this fantastic response: "On that basis, why would you report on the Nationals?" he asked. "There are a lot of reasons to cover losers."
