Some people are too insane for even Obama to pick.

/wonder if he did'nt email in his application like the 240,000 other hopefuls
//or it could be that whole UFO thing

Remember that news conference or debate where the camera guy would zoom in on Mrs. Kucinich, even if it wasn't Dennis who was talking... that was great!

isn't kucinich the one who thinks syria is a better country than the u.s.a.?
 
2008-12-08 04:24:27 AM  
Very funny, subby! Hee!

And this, quite funny too: When asked about a potential role for Mr. Kucinich in his administration, Mr. Obama said today that the Ohio congressman would not make the cut for his team of rivals, but added that he would be announcing a "JV team of rivals" some time in late February.

Well, then he's not the only one.

Obama doesn't want anything like a liberal in his cabinet. Placating the righties seems to be far more important.

Kucinich added "it's also unfair and insane that he's after me pot o' gold!"

Please tell me you are not talking about Michelle Obama.

I think it is kinda stupid he doesn't have Kucinich beating the shiat out of someone. The guy is effective.
 
2008-12-08 05:35:35 AM  
Mr. Kucinich's statements were widely seen as a Hail Mary bid to become Postmaster General.

When asked about a potential role for Mr. Kucinich in his administration, Mr. Obama said today that the Ohio congressman would not make the cut for his team of rivals, but added that he would be announcing a "JV team of rivals" some time in late February.




Oh SNAP

Kucinich is a coward who would never make it into Commander in Chief Obama's cabinet. His anti-war bullshiat is old and busted.

Sorry Dennis, the American people voted for war war war and that's what they are gonna get.

/Get those printing presses rollin, cos freedom isn't free.
//and unlike you, Dennis, the American people don't mind mortgaging the future of their children to defeat the evil doers.

So you've given up on your candidate before he's taken office... Or you've never agreed with him and your redundant opinion should likewise be ignored. I just can't decide which is more pointless.

He'shiat or miss I think. I think he's so prolific that there ends up being a lot of crap too.

Subby, the "satire" tag would have been a bit more appropriate, no?
 
2008-12-08 06:41:50 AM  
Kucinich is pretty awesome, odd that he would say it was insane to not be put in Obama's cabinet. Hopefully he can do something with civil liberties, as that is where Kucinich tends to shine.
 
2008-12-08 06:46:10 AM  
i like the little guy, i like passion, but if his buttons get pushed so easily i can't help but feel that the "unfair and insane" outburst shows that obama has made the right choice for now.

I loves ya, but don't go all Nader on us.

The funny thing is that I'll bet he'll laugh his ass off if/when he reads this.

Meh. 3/10.

Although the column is a joke, Obama should consider including Kucinich in his cabinet-- perhaps as Secretary of the Treasury.

Kucinich was smart enough to oppose the bailout bill and to raise intelligent questions about whether or not it was going to help homeowners or just bank stockholders.

/// I like Borowicz. Haven't seen his stuff in a long time.
 
2008-12-08 07:45:03 AM  
Kucinich is even dumber than BO.
 
2008-12-08 07:46:11 AM  
Wait... Ya'll know he didn't really say that, right? It's satire.

I agree, but would like to read more about the encounter. What were they really talking about? I see a short quote here, but it could easily be taken out of context.

Kucinich takes some unpopular stands, but does so with courage and conviction. He is an honest politician, which is probably one of the reasons he is the subject of so much ridicule. He's right about a lot of the things he says. If you want proof, listen to Rush and remember that Rush is ALWAYS wrong.

The other funny thing:

I'd actually be surprised if his wife didn't read The Huffington Post.
 
2008-12-08 08:14:04 AM  
He will get the "Secretary of Piece" position.
 
2008-12-08 08:47:37 AM  
OK, show of hands: how many didn't get the satire?
 
2008-12-08 09:01:08 AM  
I came for the hot redheads thread.

I am very, very disappointed in you all.
 
2008-12-08 09:03:25 AM  
I like Kucinich. A lot. He has been my favorite if I disregarded the criteria of someone who would actually win for a while.

Plus, uh, you realize it's not serious, right?

Alphax: Gotta have somebody sane left in the Senate.


Dennis isn't in the senate, he's a house member from Cleveland.
Are there still people left in Cleveland??

Anyway, the senate wouldn't have him, and hopefully the rest of Ohio wouldn't vote for him.
Then again, I think many Ohioans hate Sen. Voinovich.
 
2008-12-08 09:30:36 AM  
I bet the people fapping to Mrs. Kucinich here are the same people who went all Studman69 in the Emma Watson thread.

You know what's lame? Satire articles that pass themselves off as real news and are not discernable by their section of the news site nor by the painful plausibility of the content, but only by the fine print mini-bio of the writer.

You suck, HuffPo.

Kucinich supporters are a special kind of crazy.

One night I had to weave my way through a handful of them, holding up signs & handing out fliers, while on the way into a movie theater.

I politely declined when one of them tried to put one of the fliers in my hand, and this dude just starts screaming at me; calling me a Bushie, a NeoCon warmonger, and all kinds of crazy shiat.

Um, ooookay.

I think this is a troll, but it is strongly founded in truth. At least republicans pay lip-service to their base. Obama believes the right-wing myth that he is the most liberal democrat, so he only picks people to the right of his views.
 
2008-12-08 10:00:35 AM  
Heres what is unfair and insane Dennis Kucinich- Monetary reparations to black people. Sorry there is no plausible way to make that fair or economically viable. You are retarded.

I'm a Kucinich supporter and I'm getting a real kick out of that.

/I would never even pass out fliers, much less yell at someone who didn't want one.
