Why Ralph Nader is better than a curmudgeon

Ralph Nader tries to motivate people by badmouthing them. He works contrary to his goal and gets reverse results. (His being a son of a bitch was useful in his earlier career and his reputation is based upon his accomplishments then.)

A curmudgeon, on the other hand, badmouths people with the goal, conscious or not, of making the listener or reader feel awful. I’ll take Ralph Nader over Alexander Cockburn, for instance.
