Say It Ain't So, Dennis!
I am not happy about Dennis Kucinich dropping out of the presidential race. I can't imagine it's easy getting shut out of debate after televised debate because the media has wanted this to be a fucking three-person race from the get-go. I can't imagine it's easy keeping up a campaign that can only charitably be called quixotic. I can't imagine it's easy suffering through so many months of being basically a punchline just so you can bring up issues you feel are important and force other candidates just a little bit to the left so they can avoid looking like conservatives next to you.
I can't imagine any of that's easy, but I still wish the man could've stuck around longer. I never thought he had a shot in hell at actually winning so much as a single state. Nobody thought he had a shot. Except maybe a handful of still living in the same off-campus apartment eight years after graduation because they don't want to have to go through all the trouble of moving their bong collections.
I had no intention of voting for Kucinich, but I just liked knowing he was there. And now he's not. Which makes me sad.
So sad, in fact, that I'm not even going to crack any jokes at his expense.
Except to say that I heard that he was forced to drop out after John Edwards found his pot of gold.
Best of luck, congressman.
Hmm. You clearly had no intention of voting for him, campaigning for him, watching him, or supporting him, so why the sadness? I mean, yeah, I can see it philosophically, but isn't that just shit for 21-year-olds who can't pick a major?
Back off, man. Joe explains himself to no one. Except to Joe. And then when he does it, he does it in the third person, which gets really fucking confusing, let Joe tell you.
Kucinich was cool because he is from Cleveland and he's a vegetarian. It's probably for the best that he dropped out though. In Michigan, he received less votes than Undecided, although we didn't have a real primary here.Post a Comment
