I've voted for Ralph Nader several times,
Nader's a great candidate, but I'm not going to pretend for a second that voting for him maximizes the expected utility of my ballot. I live in this two-party winner-take-all country[...] If you plan to vote for Nader, strongly prefer Obama to McCain, believe the election will be close, and live in Maine, Nebraska, or a swing state, then either you're voting irrationally or I've missed something here.
Indeed. And of course what passes for debate and political discourse could use a little, well, infusion of actual issues, and exigency. That aside I have to say that as he's interviewed here (in case you missed it) by some brainlessly persistent douchefuck, 'ol Ralph is sounding very, very good.
