Dennis Kucinich, Financial Genius
From the Post:
Clark's net worth is far less than the assets of Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.), who, with his wife, is worth an estimated $500 million. According to news accounts, the net worth of other Democratic candidates ranges from $13 million to $60 million for Sen. John Edwards (N.C.); $2.2 million to $5 million for former Vermont governor Howard Dean; and $2,000 to $32,000 for Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (Ohio).
The man must be a financial retard. Last I checked, the salary for a member of the House of Representatives was about $150,000 a year.
This is math problem: How shitty do you have to be in managing your finances on that income to be left with only $2000 - $32,000 in value at the end of the day?
I mean, he has to have bought something - anything! - that did not immediately lose all its value. This being Kucinich, it might not be a car (it would be fitting if he always took the train). But you can't blow $150,000 a year on hookers, booze and vegan food! (Can you?). Didn't he ever buy a house? Ever? Even in Ohio?
This guy doesn't have two nickels to rub together and he wants to manage the federal budget!
Maybe it has something to do with all those ex-wives....
