#3 Everytime I see Ralph, he looks more and more like everybody's crazy uncle...

#4 You're about two months too late, Ralph.

#5 Ralph might want to buckle his seatbelt right along with all of us. I fear there will be some rough motoring ahead.

#6 Hey, Ralf! You know that old saying about how if you are sitting at the table and can't figure out who the mark is? Yeah, exactly.

#7 So who do you think Ralf voted for?

#8 I came across a great comment in a Jack Vance book on the weekend:
"Of all the groups of human beings, the most relentless are the pacifists."

#11 Boy's been missing an anti-roll bar for years if you ask me, I mean to say the boys roll-center is way, way too high, way too high for his own good. Needs a good talking too if you ask me, that is to say the boys a nut, light in the head, too much houndstooth, not enough hound. Crazy that is, but rich.

#12 So who do you think Ralf voted for?
The Green Party candidate, most likely.
Where is the Time Magazine "We are all war criminals now" cover story?
That was Newsweek, but your point is taken.

#13 I suspect Ralphy voted for Roseanne Barr and Cindy Sheehan VP on the Peace and Freedom Party...350,000 did.

#14 If Ralph really cared instead of being an ego whore he would not have tried for President but would have gone for Senate from the green party. That way lefties in whatever chosen state could funnel their protests into his election without feeling it would give the election away to Republicans.
Same goes for the Libertarian candidate.
Poach a senate and house seat here and there. Get attention as a party. Then send someone to the big show.

#15 Good point Pappy - I had forgotten Nader was all green.

#16 The good news for POTUS Bammer is that, as per BENGHAZI-GATE, things heating up everywhere overseas means the Congress may not have the time or political will to set up Sen. John McCain's desired investigative panel [impeachment?] on the death of AMB Stevens.
One can argue the Bammer knows what he's doing as it was he himself whom gave Iran the deadline of March 2013.

#17 E.G. TOPIX > [Powerline Blog] AL QAEDA - RESURGENT IN IRAQ AND EMERGENT IN SYRIA THANKS IN SMALL PART TO PRESIDENT OBAMA HIMSELF.
* SAME > [News Kerala] PAKISTAN HAS DESIGNATED THE US [its]"ENEMY" BY TERMING TALIBAN LEADER MULLAH NAZIR "FRIENDLY", to the Pak Govt-State.
* SAME > IMRAN KHAN VOWS TO DELINK PAKISTAN FROM US WAR ON TERROR.
In short, Radical Islam is steadily getting stronger + going Nuclear, while the US appears to be downsizing its forces only to have to go back in again. The US is seemingly "holding" for now, which is why how the Bammer handles CHINA in the ECS + SCS + mainland Asia [China-India-Pak] may prove decisive.
THE US HAS NOT HAD A NUCLEAR CONFRONTATION WID AN OPPOSING MAJOR POWER SINCE THE 1962 CUBAN MISSLE CRISIS + 1973 YOM KIPPUR WAR, BOTH OF WHICH WERE AGZ THE SOVIETS.
