Dennis, it's time to light the rockets
Alright, I am beginning to lose hope that Dennis Kucinich is going to pull one out of the hat here.
Come on Dennis, it's time to say something provocative and get noticed!
I've supported Dennis Kucinich from the beginning, if for no other reason than it would be fun watching Democrat who is wrong on everything try to get elected.
Social Security? He wants to EXPAND it.
Iraq? He believes that the UN wants to come in and take over.
Health Care? The money saved in Iraq will more than pay for his universal health care plan, or so he says...(would you trust the guy with a calculator after he bankrupted Cleveland?).
And he wants the right to a job and the right to housing to be included in the Bill of Rights. (Hey, why not throw in the right to three square meals a day while we're at it? It could be just like prison!)
And it would all be paid for by a tax hike on the rich and a 50% cut in the defense budget. Yippee!
In short, Kucinich is saying the things that many Democrats would love to say, but they can't stand the thought of being laughed at.
Yes, it would be fun having a Democrat who is wrong on EVERYTHING:
("Hey Dennis, what color is the sky?"
"Wrong! It's blue!")
Dennis has it all. Not just the politics, but the look too: Popeye's Olive Oyl with a strained, constipated expression and Moe haircut. The ill-fitting suits. The squeaky voice. And he has a history too: two failed marriages and a history of fiscal mismanagement in his personal and public life.
His campaign actually trumpeted an endorsement from a children's fairytale character. But he was the fairytale candidate for people who can't stand Democrats.
But alas, Dennis. The score is about a million to zero, and it is late in the fourth quarter.
But Dennis does have an ace up his sleeve, one thing that could turn the tables on old John Kerry:
At least Dennis Kucinich is authentic.
