There's a movement fronted by the two guys at RepentantNaderVoter to get the people who voted for Nader in 2000 to align themselves against Bush in 2004, whatever the candidate. There's little debate any more about whether Nader's 3% gave Bush his victory over Gore, but four years later, that 3% is divided over whether they should again vote their conscience, or be more practical. I'm not sure what I think of the movement in general, but I do like one point they make: Bush has proven wrong one of Nader's fundamental arguments, that the Democrats and Republicans are all alike. For better or worse, the country would be vastly different today if Gore had won the presidency.

Naturally, there's also UnrepentantNaderVoter, snotty attitude intact.

Kobe

Not that any of us are big basketball fans, but I'm surprised this topic hasn't come up already. So far, everyone in the court of public opinion seems to be ignoring the revealed facts of the case and are making up their minds based on similar circumstances: Haven't we all heard of rape victims who were not believed afterward because of the status of their attacker, and also of men charged with rape because the woman wanted to extort him or protect her own good name?
