Pandagon reports on Nader's attempts to get press credentials for the ongoing Democratic Convention:
It's quintessential Nader, though - a totally unreasonable demand premised on a horrible argument which, when gone unmet, will totally confirm every unreasonable thing he already thinks. He knew when the convention was. He knew the process to apply for credentials. He's applying at about the 14th hour, which is about three metaphorical hours too late to even be considered too late.
After Nader finished answering questions, a Nader spokesperson attempted to raise money from the crowd for the campaign?which he claims does not accept any corporate donations.
?I'm looking for a $1,000 hero,? the spokesperson said.
No such ?hero? stepped forward, although two individuals came forward to donate $500 each. The Nader campaign representatives passed buckets around the crowd looking for additional donations, and autographed copies of Nader's book, Crashing the Party, were available for $75 each at the end of the question and answer session.
