Nader Wants Filmmaker Moore to Come Home By SAM HANANEL, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - Ralph Nader (news - web sites) wants renegade filmmaker Michael Moore to end his dalliance with the Democratic Party and return to his anti-establishment roots.

The independent presidential candidate sent an open letter to Moore on Friday pleading with him to support Nader's third-party candidacy, as Moore did in 2000.

"Ok Michael, you've had your realpolitik fling with ex-General Wesley Clark (news - web sites)," Nader writes. "Your endorsed presidential candidate in the Democratic primaries has withdrawn. It is time for you to come home, to join your buddies and resume your only genuine role which is that of defiance and resistance."
Whaaaat? Wesley Clark, realpolitik?
It makes me feel all warm inside that Nader cares more about his fantasy ideology of defiance than about the reality of the terrorist threat.
