Ralph Nader has finally once and for all lost his mind

Perennial presidential bridesmaid Ralph Nader has now lost the moral high ground that he once had by suggesting that Barack Obama appeals to white voters because he doesn't threaten white power and because he tries to talk white.

Well Ralph - he doesn't bowl white. So what does any of this have to do with anything anyway? How is Nader's statement not racist? Is there really any political rationale to saying that someone talks white, or black, or like Borat for that matter?

As Obama's communications director Robert Gibbs stated in response to Nader, “It reminds me of the old saying, which I’ll paraphrase: ‘Better to be thought not-so-smart than to open your mouth and remove all doubt,’ which is apparently what Ralph Nader did in Denver yesterday or the day before.
