The Kucinich Zone

You're traveling through another dimension -- a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's a signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Kucinich Zone!
Let's imagine the wondrous land, the amazing dimension of sight and sound and mind that we'd have if Dennis Kucinich (D-Awesomeness) were in charge.

1. No more war. Kucinich has been trying to stop the money-pit wars in the Middle East since they began. Does anyone listen? Nope. But think how much more money--and how many fewer dead soldiers, Iraqis, and Afghanis--we'd have on our hands if we'd never gone to Iraq or Afghanistan. Kucinich just proposed stopping additional funding for the Afghanistan war and bringing our troops home by the end of the year. Predictably, it failed. But without Kucinich, would anyone in Washington even be talking about an end to this insanity?

2. Single-payer option national health care. Does anyone in the House believe in fighting for us besides Kucinich?

3. Cheney impeached.

4. A sustainable energy policy.

5. No bailouts for billionaires.

6. Cheney impeached. Oh sweet jeebus, the words are like music.

7. We'd still have a hot First Lady.
8. Cheney impeached. Sigh.

Matty Boy--I realize now that I should've asked before using the image! However, it's tempered with the little elf's presence; I chose not to go full-on solo hotness out of respect for you, my man.

Interesting how everyone is piling up on Dennis today. Why it almost seems coordinated from the White House. Move On can blow me. I sent Dennis a few bucks. The white house licks that fucking oportunit Bart Stupak's ass, but tries to scuttle Kucinich. This will not end well. For them. Kucinich, he'll be fine. God loves him. Proof? His hot wife. Just saying.

GMB--that's proof enough for me. Dennis can take anything the WH dishes out.

I love Dennis Kucinich and wish our country could have elected him President. But sadly, our country is too far right of his positions and there is no way it would happen.

As for the health care bill, I think he has made the right decision in supporting the bill despite the absence of a public option. This will be a work in progress, and time will tell whether what passes eventually becomes what it should be. As Dennis said,

"It's not the bill I want," Kucinich admitted. "So I have to ask myself, am I going to just rest on my philosophical position here?" Instead, he continued, "there is a moment of decision you have to make, not looking at the bill as you want it but as it is."

Unfortunately, idealogic purity is good but it doesn't get anyone's health care covered. I hope that eventually there will be a public option included; even Medicare and Social Security were not passed with all of their current bells and whistles. There will be incremental changes until it becomes what we really need.

I've decided that whatever Kucinich is for or against, he can count me in.
