Move Over Hillary and Obama … Dennis Kucinich Running for President


The Washington Post described Dennis Kucinich’s Presidential Democratic nomination run as follows:

Citing dissatisfaction with his party’s strategy on Iraq, Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (Ohio) announced yesterday that he would run for the Democratic presidential nomination.

It may have better been stated as follows: Citing dissatisfaction that Dennis Kucinich has received no face time since the last Democratic Presidential nomination debate in 2004, Kucinich runs for his parties nomination. Since then Dennis Kucinich has been in the “where are they now” files. I am sure Hillary Clinton lost sleep with Kucinich’s announcement for another run. Talk about doing something as a resume builder and to have that caption beneath your name when doing a TV appearance … “former Presidential candidate“. Forget the Obama media craze … Dennis has joined the big dance. Let the games begin.

As Dennis Kucinich stated when asked if he planned a 2008 run for the White House, “Yes, I Am”. Honestly, what else is he doing with his time? He might as well run as his candidacy falls in to the “what else am I doing vote for me” mode.

He says he plans to show up for every debate he is invited to — and even if not, he may show up anyway.

      Oy! I hope not many voting age peeps want Clintons running the country again.
      Obama I think can capture more hearts & minds than Al Sharpton.
      2004 is past news. We need someone new to lead our nation imho.
      Jessie Ventura be the man maybe if he were to run as independent.

      In the interest of time, allow me, the Skyboxx prognosticator to help you cross off the following democratic hopefuls for 2008. Remember you heard it here first.

      You can also cross off the following Democratic contenders

      Hillary Clinton – Way too much baggage

      Bracka Hussein Obama or whatever, and yes his middle name is “Hussein”. Not electable in 2008, no one named Hussein is electable for the near term future. He is saying all the right things now in December 2006, wait about a year.

      John Kerry, – not electable (Too much foot in his mouth)
      Dennis Kuchinich – No chance
      Al Sharpton – Forget ’bout it

      Nancy Pelosi – Yep, you can bet by 2008 she will be thinking about some role, but it will be too late and she will not be electible.

      Joe (Mr Plagerism) Biden – NOPE

      Harry Ried – NOT A CHANCE!

      Russ Feingold – Nada, Nyet

      John McCain, Opps, he’s running as a repulican, scratch that name

      Could list a couple of more names, but its only Dec 4th, 2006.

      Hmmmmmm, this gives me an idea….

      the Scared Monkeys Party (SMP for short)

      Let’s not be hasty, there are a number of us who would love to be nominated, however there can only be one. Next, there are many supporting roles in the SMP.

      We also have to define our platforms, consider potential cabinet appointees, our Internet campaign platforms, etc.
      The list is endless. (They say that Howard Dean started as a grass roots campaign all on the internet.) We could also call ourselves the Common Sense Party or CSP.

      We can elect delegates, and have a Scared Monkey Convention.

      Primaries are just around the corner. (Better practice my speech writing)

      I am serious, if we get a name registered in all 50 states we can get on the ballet.

      Sure will we will take some heat for beging the Monkey party, but Clinton surveyed monkey business in the oval office.

      Don’t forget the documentaries, the screenplay and the eventual movie deal. Mr. Monkey Goes to Washington.

      How ’bout it monkeys?

      Dennis Kucinich is what this country needs: someone with the balls to say ENOUGH. I am using all of my influence to encourage people to support his candidacy. We need him and we need him now.

      Dennis Kucinich couldn’t run the city of Cleveland. I know, I was there. He let the city slide into default. An American city defaulted on its loans, because Dennis isolated himself from the banks, the business and the people. Talk about divider!

      He was mayor of Cleveland, was a prominent Democrat and had a Democratic City councile and couldn’t GET ALONG WITH THEM. He was a farce then and he is a farce now. Out on a limp with Shirley McClain, is ‘ole Denny boy. Don’t get me started on his out of body experiences with Shirley. Do yourself a favor and forget ole Denny boy for Prez. He couldn’t run a city, let alone run the country. And I like Dennis, but facts are facts Jack or HippieChick or whomever.
