Stick a fork in Ralph

Well, I've been arguing for some time now that Ralph Nader has clearly become a right-wing tool.

Now he's gone and removed all doubt:
Nader does Buchanan

There are many choice bits worth commenting on, but most noteworthy is Nader's pandering to the right on immigration:
PB: Should illegal aliens be entitled to social-welfare benefits, even though they are not citizens and broke into the country?

RN: I think they should be given all the fair-labor standards and all the rights and benefits of American workers, and if this country doesn’t like that, maybe they will do something about the immigration laws.

Why any progressive with two brain cells left to rub together would vote for Nader is beyond me. But then, that was what I thought in 2000.
