"Kucinich refuses to promise to support the Democratic nominee"

The media hordes are camped out in Iowa in huge numbers to cover the caucus results tonight but they seem to be missing what might really be the most important political story currently in progress. That is the possible defection of Dennis Kucinich later this year to either run as a third party candidate or support such a candidate. I am almost sure this will happen if either Hillary or John Edwards gets the Demo nomination. With Hillary you probably know the reasons. In the case of the Breck Girl it has something to do with a betrayal of the Evil Elf by Edwards. I'm not exactly sure of the details but apparently, after Kucinich threw his support to Edwards in the 2004 Iowa caucuses, the North Carolina lawyer somehow stabbed Dennis in the back later on. In any event, we alread have a heads up as to the Evil Elf's future actions as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Kucinich refuses to promise to support the Democratic nominee." So let us now watch as Kucinich prepares the way for the Democrat crackup in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, saying hello to the Future Whigs of America, is in the [brackets]:


Kucinich refuses to promise to support the Democratic nominee

[Hello Third Party!]


AUSTIN—Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, along with supporter Willie Nelson, have filed a lawsuit to get Kucinich on the ballot in Texas after they say the Texas Democratic Party rejected his application.

The civil lawsuit was delivered late Wednesday afternoon to U.S. District Court for the Western District of the United States, Kucinich spokesman Andy Juniewicz said late Wednesday evening.

The lawsuit says that Kucinich was informed by the Texas Democratic Party on Wednesday that his application was "defective" because he crossed out a loyalty oath in the application that said he would swear to support whoever the Democratic nominee for president might be.


[Willie Nelson supports Kucinich because he has been promised the position of Secretary of Bong if the Evil Elf is elected.]


loyalty oaths are crap... good for Kucinich


[Go Evil Elf!]


If he doesn't believe in the democratic process, he doesn't belong on the Democratic line. Not in Texas, not anywhere.


[John Edwards sure showed a lot of loyalty to Kucinich...NOT!]


loyalty oaths are part of the "democratic process?' Where? In Iran?


[North Korea?]


In fact, he doesn't even have to "support" the party nominee. He just has to keep his mouth shut!


[DUmmie to Evil Elf: "SHADDUP!]


He needs to get out of the way.


[He's small enough to crush like an annoying bug.]

Dennis don't turn into another Liberman.


[Hey, it WORKED for Joe!]


It stinks that they would deny him, but it also stinks that he might not support the nominee. who's he thinking he might support if it's someone he doesn't like, a Green candidate?


[Ralph is waiting in the wings.]


Loyalty oaths are for fascists, authoritarians and dictators. Dennis is right.


[Apparently loyalty oaths are also for Democrats.]


I expect nothing positive from kucinich. self-righteous whiney little cry baby. no wonder he cant break out of single digits.


[I expect a lot of positive things from Kucinich like a third party run.]


A loyalty oath is BS. He could have lied & signed it but he stood firm. I call that class.


[I wonder what Kucinich's former press secretary would call it?]

I have never heard of a loyalty oath being part of an application for appearance on a ballot.

My first instinct is: "This can't be Constitutionally acceptable".

Surely, the right of freedom of choice on a secret ballot or of one's conscience cannot be abridged like this?

Somebody should ask Ayatollah Dean.

Who woulda thunk I agreed with this DUmmie and the Crazy Elf?

Um ... on the "we're more alike than different" thing ...

I've seen UFOs three times.

For the record, I reacted like the Crazy Elf and entourage: more "WOW!!" than "Holy shit!"

If you think I am nucking futs, just answer this question: when was the last time you looked up into the sky and saw Orion?

Last night.

Not gonna lie, I'v seen some weird shit in the night sky. Probably just a plane though.

I do love reading old UFO sightings from the Nevada desert back in the 80s:

"It was a black triangle, all black, with a pyramidal structure in the front, and this v shaped tail on the back. It had these segmented flat panels it was made out of."

Of course, flying over the Nevada desert in the 80s was this beauty:

So yeah. When I here about a UFO sighting out West, I tend to assume it's the Air Force playing with their cool toys.

Several years ago, my brother and I stood in awe of our "sighting" of an immense (as in "Holy crap, that's enormous!"), black, triangular craft. It was absolutely quiet, and we watched it block out the stars as it drifted above us.
Shortly afterwards (yes, I know what this sounds like), four unmarked black choppers blazed through with searchlights.

The object itself, to us, could NOT have been a military craft (due mostly to its immense size)

That event eventually (several years later) had me writing/editing for our local MUFON chapter. (I've even been chased away from the infamous "black mailbox" at the non-existent "Area-51" base... highly recommended nightime aerial acrobatics! :)

I may be a kook, but then again, I'm not running for President.

Depending on the kind of primary a state has (closed, open, blanket, whatever) the state party may have pretty much total control of the process (absent a court challenge and a win by the challenger).

I'm not an expert by any means on primaries, but primaries *started* as a 'Progressive' reform of the caucus systems extant at the time. Like most 'Progressive' reforms (think the crappy commissioner form of municipal government), it quickly got captured by the party elites and now is maybe worse than before.

Kucinich? Dear God. Not Kucinich. Please. Not him!! The entire nation of liberal, progressive, communist abortionists and university professors will never survive if Kucinich comes out for...Ron Paul maybe? Naw. Huckabee? Don't see it. Romney? Highly doubt it. Rudy? No. Fred? Doesn't make sense. McCain? Imagining Kucinich and McCain together might be enough to get you admitted somewhere.

So, what the hell are you talking about, PJ? Are you willing to offer up even the slightest bit of authenticity about your claim or should we just trust you? It's already been demonstrated that you make up conversations in your head (for entertainment purposes only).

I understand why Kucinich would be reluctant to take a loyalty oath. I'm sure he has trust issues. I seem to recall a certain press secretary who wasn't very loyal to him.

It was obvious to me that PJ meant he would run as an independent, not that he would find God and become a Republican.

Sheesh. Try to keep up.

OK. Thanks for pep talk. So the tiniest, little itsy bitsy proof that any of this is going on would be....what. Who says Kucinich is defecting? PJ offers nothing and yet you bunch of lemmings keep coming up these fantasy scenarios like they're somehow based in reality.

Go for it. Whatever turns your crank.

I'd pay good money to see a Kucinich/Paul third party campaign this Fall. It would be more fun than a barrel of T-Men.

I would be interesting if we could enter your mind and find what's interesting and fun about it. But, sadly, we can't.

Trog, you forgot to sign your previous comment. It's missing the "Dumbass" that you're reminding everyone you are.

The Parties aren't the Government. They can demand a loyalty oath if they want. It's their game.

I understand Kucinich not signing. I wouldn't either. But as I see it they are perfectly free to require it.

Free, as in, "freedom".
