Subscribers to the email updates for Nader.org, received the following review yesterday of Ralph Nader’s latest release, the fictional The Day the Rats Vetoed Congress:
Congress is infested with rats!
In this heavily illustrated fable written by the influential public advocate Ralph Nader, rats invade Congress — and the citizens revolt!
When a reporter breaks the news that “Rats have invaded the toilet bowls” of the halls of Congress, it sparks a national frenzy. Activists see the rats upending “business as usual,” and turn the invasion into a symbol against the lobbyists who hold Congress in their sway. A massive citizen uprising follows, which threatens to sweep Congress clean of Wall Street’s chokehold of corruption — but the corporate titans have ways of fighting back! Gleefully and generously illustrated by famed political cartoonist Mr. Fish, and more than just a story, this is a “how to” guide to effect political change — from a pied piper who’s done it time and time again.
Consumer advocate Ralph Nader, the 1996 and 2000 Green Party presidential nominee, 2004 Reform Party presidential nominee, and 2008 Peace and Freedom Party presidential nominee, has authored at least 40 books in his lifetime including the classic Unsafe at Any Speed (1965) and the fictional Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us! (2009). Nader.org is his official site.
