Accusations that candidate Ralph Nader kept Rev. Smith from receiving his highest possible “hotness” rating in the recent vote were vehemently denied today in a public announcement from Nader. “I actually tried to get [Smith] to comb his hair a little better for that picture,” explained Nader to a smattering of applause. He then shook both fists and stated that it was “most definitely not” his idea for Smith to have his photo taken at a Taco Bell.
