Ralph Nader Wants His MTV


MTV, already so accepting of bisexual promiscuity and Pete Wentz‘s hair, announced this week that it will, for the first time in its 27 years, accept political advertisements, noting in a statement, however, that it will only take ads from a “legally qualified candidate” or a “nationally recognized political party.” Yesterday, New York radio host and conservative pot-stirrer Curtis Sliwa informed Independent candidate Ralph Nader [relevant bits at 7:45] that only Barack Obama and John McCain are invited to buy airtime for what will no doubt be embarrassingly unhip ads on MTV. “This is news to me,” Nader said, calling it “political bigotry,” and threatening, “We may have to litigate this.”

But is it all just a big misunderstanding … on Sliwa’s part?
