GOP helping Nader's ballot drive

TalkLeft has an item entitled, Bush Campaign Helping Nader in Oregon, which includes an email from on Oregon Democrat:

This Saturday, there will be a convention in Portland, Oregon to attempt to place Ralph Nader on the Oregon ballot. They will need 1,000 registered voters for his name to be on the November ballot and an independent. A few months ago, they attempted but came up short.

I am a Democrat who, a short while ago, gave my email address and phone number to the local Republican party to receive updates on what they were up to. Today I received a phone call from the local Republican party asking me if I wanted to go the Nader convention. They explained the need to get Nader on the ballot to help President Bush. The name on the caller ID on my phone said "Bush Cheney" implying that they were calling from the Oregon Bush Cheney headquarters.
