The campaign of independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader released a YouTube video early Sunday morning, two days before the nation votes, poking fun at Senator Obama’s lack of political fortitude. The video features 22 year-old Nick Bygone searching in vain for ‘Obama nuts,’ a new entry into the lexicon of Slate’s Encyclopedia Baracktannica, a list of words that have been Obamafied.

The video opens with remarks by Rev. Jesse Jackson suggesting that he would like to perform a surgical alteration to Senator Obama’s organs of manhood.

Bygon then sets out on an ultimately successful quest to track down the ‘Obama nuts.’ He visits Greenpeace, but apparently their promised supply of Obama nuts have not arrived. He is directed to visit the Nuclear Energy Institute, but the institute hands them a brochure showing that Obama and McCain support nuclear power, and the Obama nuts remain elusive. After visiting a hospital in search of single payer health care, a check cashing outlet in search of a fair deal for the 100 million low income Americans, and a mosque, Bygon finally finds the Obama nuts in the most unlikely of places, but their price tag is a little steep.
