Fox News Shep Smith vs. A Very Bitter Ralph Nader

In the wake of Barack Obama’s historic win, third-party presidential candidate Ralph Nader seized the moment in the worst way.  His bitter invective unleashed at president-elect Obama was bad enough, but Nader laced his remarks with a deeply offensive, racial epithet.  Shep Smith (my favorite Fox News anchor) and the pundits on hand didn’t bother to hide their disgust with Nader, a now irrelevant figure who just managed to completely dismantle - entirely through his own doing - what little remained of a once proud and heroic legacy.
