WELL, IT’S A THEORY….It’s not a good theory, but it’s a theory. On CNN, Larry King was just asked what’s the deal with Ralph Nader and he replied, “Well, I know he had a stroke. He had a stroke a few years back. He’d never wanted to run for office before.”

I report, you decide. It’s as good an explanation as any, I suppose.
