    so angry about the @ssholes trashing Kucinich re his decision to go to work for Fox.  Obama goes on Fox but hey...

    Didn't trust myself to comment because by the time I saw the diary I had been drinking and would have probably got HR'd into oblivion.

    •  i wasn't all that surprised to see kucinich go... (6+ / 0-)

      to fox.  i think that there are a number of things which progressives can come to terms with tea partiers on and kucinich can probably assist in building that strange bedfellow alliance on a limited number of issues.  kucinich is also a fairly persuasive speaker who may actually be able to occasionally get through on a variety of issues (particularly war issues) to some of the fox nation.

      i think that it's a net gain for our side.  kucinich and his point of view is clearly not wanted by the democratic elites, so if he can build a constituency for progressive issues on the rocky soil of fox nation, we might be able to get some traction in congress on some issues that we've had little luck with before.

        give them a run for their money on Fox actually (and probably won't last that long as a result!)  Heck it might even be worth watching him now and then, if I could bother to turn on my tv, which on ~ 25 days out of the month I don't.

        Kucinich was the only one with the guts to try to impeach Bush.  I'll always give him credit for that.

      •  Many moons ago..I met Kucinich... (5+ / 0-)

        He was mayor of Cleveland at the time. In heels, I'm taller than he is and eventually took them off so I didn't have to look at the top of the mayor's head all evening.   At the time, I was surrounded by Republicans who carried paper bags around because every time Dennis spoke, they were hyperventilating. Lawd, they had the vapors! LMAO!

        He sticks to his convictions, gives sound reasoning for his stand on issues and loves to 'debate'.  Too many underestimate him because of his slight stature. That's a big mistake..and Fox will learn this the hard way. He has a great sense of humor, which many mistake for lack of depth and getting SERIOUS on the issues. He gets damned serious.  For this, I'll watch Fox..and enjoy-a LOT.

        Have to make sure all those cons have paper bags..they're gonna need them!
