2004 Libertarian Presidential candidate Michael Badnarik in Liberty for All:

Over the years I have developed a reputation for being a “constitutional expert”. (Referring to myself as “The Stepfather of the Constitution” admittedly may have something to do with that.)

Ralph Nader: ‘Bush At Large’

By Ralph Nader at Nader.org:

George W. Bush is on a roll—a money roll with a $7 million advance for his book Decision Points and a rehabilitation roll to paint his war crimes as justifiable mass-slaughter and torture.
