Politics: Dennis Kucinich Kicks Ass


And elephant. Seriously. He came out swinging in this TV interview, and I was blown away. The mass media gives us news on Hillary and Obama, with the occasional negative swipe at Edwards. We hear very little about Dodd, Biden, Gravel, Kucinich. It's time for that to stop.

Even this interview was pretty rude and condescending, but Kucinich was having none of that. Here's part of the report from Raw Story:
During an appearance on CBS's Early Show, host Harry Smith told Kucinich that Republicans had "basically called your bluff" in wanting to debate the impeachment of Cheney on the House floor.

"They didn't call my bluff," Kucinich shot back. "I was fully prepared for debate -- with a three-inch thick binder annotating the violations of law and the violations of the Constitution committed by the vice president which would justify an impeachment."

[...]

"Harry, you have to remember there are millions of Americans who are part of a national movement to defend the constitution," said Kucinich. "And they understand that the vice president made a false claim for war and is trying to beat the drums for a war against Iran and they're calling for action to be done."

Impeachment, said Kucinich, was a move on his part safeguard the Constitution.

"It's really abut the American people and their insistence that their government not be lost," he continued. "People are worried that we're losing democracy, and they're demanding that the Constitution be protected. And that's exactly what yesterday was about."
That's some serious ass-kickin' right there. The ass in question being Harry Smith of CBS' Early Show. Raw Story has the video.

These mavens of the media who sneer and deride and act like only they have the right to pick the next president - they need to go. We don't need to hear their claptrap. We can - and will - make up our own damn minds.

While they pounded into our head that we could and should all drink a beer with Bush, and Al Gore was a boring wonk, many people listened - and now, our children's, grandchildren's, our world's future looks pretty bleak, after seven years of corruption, nepotism, partisanship, and looting the Treasury. That's what happened the last time we listened to you jerks.

Let the people decide!

... I'm a people and I say impeach the bastards NOW! Imagine if the Germans impeached Hitler in the 1930's for his excesses. They might have avoided war that killed 50-60 million people and destroyed Europe. But no, I'm sure they thought they had to busy themselves with other business that Bush, I mean Hitler, would veto anyway.
