Ralph Nader hearts T.O.
You know you've worn out your welcome when the only person who will stick up for you is Ralph Nader.
Terrel Owens, the embattled NFL football player for the Philadelphia Eagles, recently received help in the form of an open letter from Ralph Nader to NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue. He writes:
"I am writing to urge you to rescind the misguided suspension and planned inactive designation of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens. If the Eagles management declines to remedy its mistake, Commissioner Tagliabue, you should intervene to overturn the team's decision, which dishonors this country's traditional respect for free speech and cheats fans of an opportunity to see arguably the best receiver in football. Let him play."
I can think of only two people in America that are less liked that Terrel Owens, George W. and Ralph Nader. I am sure the former wide receiver is thinking "Yea, thanks for the help." He might as well have President Bush campaign for him on a Terry Schiavo law.
What the hell is wrong with Ralph Nader? I used to think this was nearly a great man, but as he gets older he seems desperate to stay in the public limelight. He's already cost us an election that resulted in ill advised war what more does want?
If somebody picks up Terrel and they beat the Cowboys in the playoffs I am gonna firebomb Nader's house.
