> The New Republic takes its best shot:
There is something even more curious than Nader's sudden pandering.
(Excuse us, his sudden hunger for Levantine peace.) It turns out that
Nader's cheapness on this question, and his conspiratorial view of the
world, go back very far. They go back to March 1960, when the left's
gaunt hero published an article called "Business Is Deserting
America," in which he warned ominously of "our ingrained gullibility
to internationalism." The remarkable thing is that Nader published his
piece in The American Mercury, an obscenely anti-Semitic magazine.
The youthful mistake of the saint? Perhaps; but neither Gore nor Bush
ever made quite such a mistake.
Actually Gore made exactly the same sort of mistake, but much more recently -- his serious flirtation in 1991 of the "God Hates Fags" Minister.
