  1. I assume Nader is still hawking his novel, In "Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us!"

    In the novel, he presents a “blueprint” for remaking the United States and getting it right this time.

    In Nader’s utopia, everyone makes a higher minimum wage and has universal health care. These changes are effected by, according to one review, “a small but determined mega-rich group of protagonists, including Warren Buffet, George Soros, Ted Turner, Bill Cosby and Yoko Ono.”

    Add $15 billion to the ideas Nader has been chatting up for decades and presto – you get Utopia.

    I saw him trawling for dollars at a book store in West Hartford. And though he’s sent his novel to all the billionaires mention in the book, none so far has coughed up the $15 billion that would be necessary to launch Nader's new USA.

  2. Under the Obama dispensation, the super rich will find it a bit more difficult to hang onto their ill gotten gains. One assumes they will want to cut back on charitable donations to Nader.

  3. Doubt if any super-rich are donating to Nader - and I wouldn't give my $ to him if i had them.

  4. Heard Ralph speak in West Hartford a couple of months ago, I found him rather likable. The bad haircut and scar on the nose only added to his appeal. I bought his doorstop of a book, which I have not cracked the binding on yet. When he was signing it for me he said it's a response to Atlas Shrugged. It was heartening to hear him say the climate change issue is a lot of hooey.

    Go Ralph go!
