    I can't WAIT to see the look on George Wallabyfucker Bush's face when he's handing the country over to Barack Obama.  I just can't wait.

    And the inauguration is going to be the sweetest of all time.  It will be the biggest, the blackest inauguration of all time.  And we'll run Bush out of town on a rail.

      Kucinich supporters have a reputation for seeking out online polls and pointing to them as evidence of success. Kucinich himself did that recently (pointed to success in an online poll) in complaining to a network for being excluded from something. I remember how frustrated Kucinich's 2004 Press Secretary David Swanson (who went on to co-found http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/ among other things) became last time around when supporters would put so much emphasis on these unscientific online polls. I think it just goes to show that Kucinich taps into a certain sector of cyberspace that has a lot of extra time and enthusiasm that expresses itself in ultimately non-productive ways, just like with Ron Paul. Kucinich is not a kook the way Paul is though, so I hate to mention Paul but they do attract similar elements, I'd suggest. Personally, I do think Kucinich is the best Democratic candidate and I got into a little flame war defending his honor yesterday. It always upsets me when people casually point to his Mayoral episode in defending the public utility as a black mark rather than a point of distinction.

        I sometimes worry that I will appear to be like those annoying Ron Paul freepers who work him into every discussion and no matter what the issue claim RP's stance is the best one.

        Kind of like I'm not in the 'in' crowd who supports one of the big three...nose pressed against the window watching the big party from outside.

        And yet, I must embrace my position as part of the left-wing fringe.

        P.S.  It's less about the war than it is about health-care and NAFTA for me.
