Speaking of Michigan and Nader

Josh Marshall links to this from ABC News:

Consumer advocate Ralph Nader’s quixotic presidential campaign says it submitted about 5,400 signatures to get on the Michigan ballot, far short of the required number of 30,000. Luckily for him, approximately 43,000 signatures were filed by Michigan Republicans on his behalf, more than meeting the requirement.

Should be great for Nader’s ego. And since there’s no difference between what Bush and Kerry administrations would do over the next 4 years(*), I don’t see why Marshall quips, “Speaks for itself. Idiots …”
