    Ralph Nader praises Sarah Palin

    We decided to call the longtime left crusader about a speech Palin gave in Iowa earlier this month, one which seemed to mark the transformation of Palin from a standard-issue movement conservative to something more independent and more reformist. And Nader told us he liked what he heard.

    "I think she's a lot smarter than most people credit her," says Nader. "Judging by her comments, she is squarely in the camp of conservative populism, opposed to corporatism and its corporate state."

    . . .

    "When she was governor of Alaska she really did take on the oil industry, and [she also] approved a statewide referendum that resulted in the first state in the Union to regulate cruise lines and their pollution offshore," he says. "So there is a precursor to these remarks."

    What I like is how Nader acknowledges that this was not a new thing for Palin either as some have portrayed it.
    "For what is Evil but Good-tortured by its own hunger and thirst?"

    Palin & Nader should run in 2012 on a third party.
