Pat 'n' Ralph

In a meeting of the two fringe candidates who ran for president in 2000, Pat Buchanan interviews Ralph Nader in American Conservative. The interview confirms that old adage that far left and far right really aren’t all that different, as among other things the two men share a long-held aversion to the state of Israel:

RN: They’re almost all puppets. There are two sets: Congressional puppets and White House puppets. When the chief puppeteer comes to Washington, the puppets prance.
PB: Why do both sets of puppets, support the Sharon/Likud policies in the Middle East rather than the peace movement candidates and leaders in Israel?
RN: The answer to your question is that instead of focusing on how to bring a peaceful settlement, both parties concede their independent judgment to the pro-Israeli lobbies in this country because they perceive them as determining the margin in some state elections and as sources of funding.

Those damn Jews- with their damn power, influence, and money!

Nader also has a problem, apparently, with “corporate pornography.” And he calls himself a liberal? If it weren’t for corporate pornography, none of us ever would’ve heard of Sharon Stone.
