Run, Dennis, Run

Run, Dennis, Run

When Dennis Kucinich lost his primary in a new district which required him to compete against an incumbent, I was disappointed.

We need a Dennis Kucinich, someone by whom others can be measured — vertically, psychologically, dentally, and bumperstically.

Run in Washington State, Dennis, Run:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is heading back to Washington state next month, stroking speculation he might be considering a comeback bid on the West Coast.

Kucinich will address a forum on protecting Social Security at Highline Community College on April 12, according to the group Washington Citizens for Kucinich.

But this may not be just any cross-country speaking trip. Last year, Kucinich flirted with running for a new House seat in the Evergreen State before seeking re-election in a redrawn Ohio district against his longtime colleague, Rep. Marcy Kaptur.

Kaptur walloped Kucinich by a 14-point margin in the Democratic primary earlier this month. But since his defeat, the 65-year-old hasn’t exactly ruled out another run somewhere, at some point in time.

“I have not made any plans, and I’m grateful to those who phoned in from Washington state or sent messages indicating an interest,” the former Cleveland mayor told the Progressive Radio Network. “I’ll find a way back in to public service, there’s no doubt about that. The only question is where and when.”

Good grief. I know some of those open seats in Washington state can’t be won by Republicans but don’t they have enough homegrown nuts there already? Why would they want to import a Buckeye?

Has having been in his district for the past 12 years, this would not surprise me. Actually during the redistricting it was big hope for many that he would be forced out.

They can have him, they can find out first hand what a worthless Representative he is.

Opportunist is his middle name!

Argh! I don’t want him… we are only now getting rid of Inslee and McDerm-NUT. And yes, NC Mountain Girl, more than our share of crazies out here. Patty Murray. Point made.

Please, dear God, no! Stay in your own state, Kucinich, we have enough work cut out for us trying to pry out our current kooky liberal politicians in WA.

[…] RUN, DENNIS, RUN: Personally, I think he should be the Green candidate for President. […]

Let him run. He’d get crushed. The 1st is a swing, lean D. And the new 10th won’t choose this clown over Denny Heck.

I want him to do it just to see him get clobbered. He wouldn’t even make it to the general.

C’mon, he’s a lot of fun and anyone who smiles that much is bound to be a gas. I’d rather have 1000 Kusciniches in the Congress than one Pelosi or Reid. A Department of Peace? Money for contacting extraterrestrials? This guy is far less threatening to America than Obama.

Maybe Kucinich should just run for President in perpetuity now. Now he can truly become the Ron Paul of the Left.

Kucinich counts roughly as .92 of a Biden and deserves a place in American politics, as does Biden, purely for entertainment value.

I’d also like to hear more from that fellow in congress who worried that Guam might tip over in the ocean.

[…] And He Would SPLIT THE DONK VOTE! […]

[…] Mr. Kucinich Goes to Washington, as in Washington State. […]
