Quote of the day

From OpinionJournal

...Mr. Nader is best understood as the inventor of today's nexus of liberal politics and trial-lawyer opportunism. His network of organizations have long been suspected of taking trial-lawyer cash, but it is impossible to tell because Mr. Nader refuses to disclose their financial backers. Yet just like Senators Kerry and Edwards he denounces the influence of sinister "special interests." It's a little ungrateful for Mr. Edwards to now upbraid the man who did so much to make the Senator's own fortune and political career possible....
I wonder if there's a bigger scoundrel than Nader in today's American politics.

'course the Weidners can't complain too much, since most of Charlene's work is battling the tort monster that Ralph did so much to create. It's sort of like that famous economics fallacy, about how breaking windows is good for the economy, because it gives work to glaziers...
