Dennis Kucinich proves he’s nuts
Congress passed a resolution establishing September 11th as a day of rememberance. It honors those who died on September 11, 2007. It also honors those that eventually served in Afghanistan and Iraq. 334 Congressmen voted for it. 1 voted against. That one, was Dennis Kucinich, candidate for president. His reasoning is this:
“It is important that Congress wake up to the truth and exercise its obligation under the Constitution to save our nation from being destroyed from the lies that took us into Iraq, the lies that keep us there, the lies that are being used to set the stage for war against Iran and the lies that have undermined our basic civil liberties here at home,” Kucinich said in a statement.
OK, so go figure this one out. In order to protect us from the lies, he wants us to forget it ever happened. That makes no sense at all. However, it falls in line with his rabid anti-war stance he’s always had. If Congress had honored those who died September 11, 2001 for no reason at all and ignored those who have died since trying to prevent it from happening again ( and it hasn’t, coincedence? ), I’m sure this bill would have passed his muster just fine. As lonely as it must seem to be the only person in Washington to be so enlightened, it must be equally lonely to have been running a national campaign for a year as an established Washington figure and be running in BARELY single digits. That seems to be the thing with Progressives. The fact that practically everyone disagrees with your point of view is completely irrelevant.
Dennis Kucinich is nuts. The sooner he exits the stage, the better off we’ll be. It’s one thing to be opposed to something. It’s completely another to be so paranoid about a topic you’re willing to insult the victims just to make your point. I really expected nothing from the Kucinich campaign. I got even less.
