  • Life with Dennis Kucinich

       January 03, 2008

    As you may have heard, Dennis Kucinich is off the Texas Democratic primary ballot. Kucinich got the boot because he crossed off part of the application that required him to support the Democratic nominee, whoever it was.

    A lot of talk on the issue has centered on why the Dems would require such an oath or why Kucinich thinks itís acceptable to accept the partyís perks without accepting the requirements of membership. Iíd rather focus on exactly why all of this happened in the first place.

    Kucinich refused to sign the oath unless the eventual nominee pledged ďnot use war as part of foreign relationsĒ. Seriously. Remind me not to take Kucinich with me next time I go car shopping: ďWe really, really want this car, but if you donít meet our price, we are absolutely not walking out that door.Ē Or what about a day in the Kucinich household? ďSon, even if you do that one more time, Iím definitely not going to spank you.Ē At just imagine what Kucinich would be like if he was asking for a raise: ďSir, I deserve this raise. But, if you donít give it to me, donít worry Ė itís not like Iím going to quit or anything.Ē

    Donít get me wrong, war sucks. Itís a last resort. In the meantime, however, itís an excellent deterrent. You canít tell me that Americans and American interests around the world arenít safer because everyone knows that if they mess with us they could be in for a world of hurt courtesy of the U.S. military.

    Kucinich might be right to fight the Partyís insistence on absolute loyalty, but the rest of us are right to ignore a naÔve idiot like Kucinich.
