Ralph Nader: the law must be free!


Rogue archivist Carl Malamud sez, "Ralph Nader argues that the law must be free in a piece in the Huffington Post. Great piece, I wasn't expecting it, so it was a treat to see it pop up (my mother is going to be impressed by this one!)."

What I love about this issue of making the law available for people to read is how totally nonpartisan it is. Ralph is joined in his voice of support by an equally strong statement by Darrell Issa when I testified about the issue last month.

The law suit by the standards people is taking a lot of my time these days, so it's nice to see these votes of support popping up.

(Thanks, Carl!)

  1. I seem to remember height being an important factor in presidential races. You'd think Nader would've done better since he appears to be about 8 feet tall in that picture.

  2. Well, according to Cory's headline that's "Ralpher Nader." Presumably regular Ralph Nader is shorter, and Ralphest Nader is even taller.

  3. It's like, how much more Ralph could he be? and the answer is none. None more Ralph.

  4. I seem to recall Ralph Nader being an important factor in electing George Bush.

    It's just not Nader's fault that Gore was unelectable. Blame the DLC. (and if you wish to discuss this further, I suggest replying with a new topic so we don't go off this one)

  5. And I seem to remember Ralph Nader being a legitimate presidential candidate (we can have more than two, can't we?), one who was saying a lot of things that Al Gore, another candidate who was also supposedly on the left, should have been saying as well.

    "Nader cost Gore the presidency" is a simplistic (and sometimes diversionary) canard.
