Election '08: San Diego's Greens Are Blue (And They're Blaming Ralph Nader)new

While Nov. 4 yielded a mixed bag for the GOP and the Dems, it provided nothing but a great big sack of rotten potatoes for just about every other political persuasion. Here, as elsewhere in the nation, adherents of the boutique parties saw their candidates routed on nearly every front. And no party performed so poorly in San Diego County as the Green Party.

Video: Nader Blasts Obama at San Francisco Statenew

In full campaign mode, Nader was harsh on his political rivals and held little back including some choice name calling. He attacked Barack Obama and other Democrats as a "sniveling cowards," who are so afraid that they suffer from a fearful condition best described as "anal flutter."

Ralph Nader, the Conservativenew

In this presidential election year, talk radio has tried to fool listeners into believing Mitt Romney is a conservative, and John McCain now spends his time trying to fool the talk radio crowd into believing that he's at least as solid as Romney was. Irony upon irony, it's worth pointing out that when it comes to having actual conservative positions, Ralph Nader shames the whole lot.

Gonzalez/Nader Hysterianew

Democrats' anger against Nader, and, by extension, Gonzalez, is misplaced in 2008 -- the likelihood that they could undermine the Democrats is doubtful. What's more, Gonzalez's futile-seeming move has a real upside. He says he'd like to use his new platform to prevent independent candidates from ever again undermining Democratic chances at victory.
