Again? Jeez, you'd think Ralph Nader would get tired of this business. But no. There he was, on his favorite talking heads hot air fest, NBC's "Meet the (Corporate) Press," telling us he will run again. The election process is beginning to look like an old rerun of Saturday Night Live.

Oh, wait a minute… Nader appeared on that show back in 1977, so we are in familiar territory. And if you think about it, little has changed since that show aired more than thirty years ago.

But seriously. Nader has absolutely no reason to run. But he tells us otherwise. "He said that he was running to draw attention to issues ignored by the major candidates in both parties: corporate crime, worker rights, military spending and foreign policy," reports the CIA's favorite newspaper, the Washington Post. "You take that framework of people feeling locked out, shut out, marginalized and disrespected," he said. "You go from Iraq, to Palestine to Israel, from Enron to Wall Street, from Katrina to the bumbling of the Bush administration, to the complicity of the Democrats in not stopping him on the war, stopping him on the tax cuts."

Same old Nader message going on more than a decade. Is anybody listening? How can they with the march to madness behind the Obama Sensation? Ron Paul attempted to inject real issues into the race and he was ignored, laughed at, interrupted, cut short, chided and derided, and the Manchurian candidate adjusted his collar and made a face while Paul offered salient points about the Constitution.

Naturally, we don't need no stinkin' Constitution — we need "change" a la Obama. It is sincerely amazing how many people are falling in lockstep behind Obama. Maybe Ralph will address that one?

Said the inveterate Raider:

Nader credited Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.), who leads the Democratic nomination race, with being "the first liberal evangelist in a long time." But Nader said Obama's "better instincts and knowledge have been censored" by the demands of the campaign.

"He's leaned, if anything, toward the pro-corporate side of policy-making," Nader said. The question is, he added, "Do you have the fortitude to stand up against the corporate powers … and get things done for the American people?" Obama, he said, has also erred on foreign policy. "He was pro-Palestinian when he was in Illinois," Nader said. "Now he's supporting" the Israeli government's policies, he added.

Better instincts?

You know, like his wife's association with the Council on Foreign Relations. But never mind that. Gather around the renowned CFR members: Caroline Kennedy and Ted Kennedy, John "Skull and Bones" Kerry, and of course Zbigniew Brzezinski, serving as Obama's foreign affairs advisor. Ziggy is a CFR member and co-founder of The Trilateral Commission, serving as Director from 1973-1976. Obama's economic advisor is Austan Goolsbee who is a member of Skull & Bones, Class of 1991. Sprinkle in a few other New World Order types and you have a fetid soufflé: Ivo Daalder, Philip Gordon, Susan Rice and Bruce Reidel, all senior fellows at the Brookings Institute. And you thought the Olin Foundation only funded the rabid American Enterprise Institute, stomping ground for serial murdering neocons. Nope, they're in there with Obama, too.

So much for Ralph's "liberal evangelist" slant. But then, as we know, such descriptions no longer apply. It's all New World Order, no matter how you spin it.

Over on the "Republican" side of the equation, we have more CFR folks. John McCain is CFR, as is his foreign policy guru, Max Boot. Not only is Boot a stark raving neocon, he also spends time with CFR editing duties. "Robert Kagan is an informal foreign policy advisor and a member of CFR who co-founded the Project For the New American Century," notes the On Freedom's Wings blog. "Henry Kissinger is an informal McCain advisor and CFR member who has said some horrendously scary things in the past. Other informal advisors and CFR members are Colin Powell, James Schlesinger, George Shultz and R. James Woolsey." Same old bunch, different selectee process.

Ralph mentioned none of this. But then Ralph does not exactly hate the Council, as he has on occasion delivered speeches for gathered one-worlders convened by the organization, as he did in 2004. Last December, Nader threw his support behind CFR fun guy John Edwards, all for naught of course, as it will be Obama-Clinton or Clinton-Obama… turn 'em upside down and… oh, never mind.

Nader's entry may be "a non-event," as Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano remarked, adding that the Obama Thing has a life of its own now and the "primaries and caucuses that have excited the national interest, brought thousands and thousands of new voters in…. They're not looking for a third party candidate." No, they're looking for the same old song and dance, dressed up in new sparkled garb, as the masses, plugged into the corporate Borg Hive box, are easily fooled again and forever, ad nauseam and amen.

Oh, did I forget to mention that "Real ID" Napolitano is a "notable" CFR member? Excuse my oversight.

Finally, the CFR — er, excuse me, Barack — is not terribly concerned about Ralph's run.

"I think the job of the Democratic Party is to be so compelling that a few percentage [points] of the vote going to another candidate is not going to make any difference," said Obama, reports the War Street Journal.

Ack… "compelling"? Sure, if you consider the CFR and Wall Street bankers compelling, if you don't mind a corporatocracy dominated by Halliburton of Dubai, British Petroleum, Dutch Royal Shell, JP Morgan-Chase Manhattan, Faux News, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, Merck Pharmaceuticals, etc., the list is far too long for this modest space.

It's all NAU from here on out, even with the "progressive" Ralph in there dropping the same old tired shibboleths around left and right, mostly left, that is if you buy into the right-left paradigm, as Ralph does.
