Just after the Democratic Party held its convention in Boston last week to listen to John Kerry, the Peace and Freedom Party held its own convention in Los Angeles this weekend to hear from Independent candidate Ralph Nader.

Thing is, after having Nader speak, the party officially decided to nominate someone else. What's more, the party nominated Leonard Peltier who's serving a life sentence in federal prison for killing two FBI agents in 1975. The Peace and Freedom Party says it "reluctantly admits that Peltier's unlikely to be elected president, but we do believe it's a very important candidacy.

They're probably trying also to raise awareness for Peltier's cause, since there's a lot of evidence that he might have been wrongly convicted, and they want to have a retrial. That is funny they didn't nominate Nader, but they probably figured he wouldn't win anyway, and this way they can at least do something useful.

I bet Nader was one of those kids who was picked on a little to much in High Schoo. At least he tries though
