After Barack Obama sat on Dennis Kucinich’s face and farted constantly for 72 hours, with Joe Biden adding in some noogies for good measure, Dennis has finally agreed to vote for his party’s major piece of legislation. He had to hold a press conference to announce this. Thanks Dennis! [YouTube]

  1. Update: also on the plane was Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who sat on Dennis Kucinich’s wife Elizabeth’s face and deposited a golden shower. That’s what did it.

  2. that this decent and often clueless saint could be a congressman, much less a democratic congressman from the forsworn state of hydroxyl, is ample proof that the universe is stranger than we can explain. let us wander its labyrinth and marvel over its wonders. there goes one now: the ghostly image of a wise and generous people. just a dream, it seems.

  3. He looks a little worn out from resisting coercion by Rahm E. for a week. That or from staying up late at night, boffing his hot Old Lady.

    Anyway, can’t he just sneak into the houses of uninsured old cobblers late at night and leave little gifts of pharmaceuticals with no co-pay?

  4. Oh, Dennis, when will you learn, you can’t escape them; they’ll always be after your Lucky Charms, and they’ll always get them in the end.

    [re=532296]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: That wouldn’t be appropriate. She’s a Limey, not a Mick.

  5. [re=532296]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: The Google says she’s English, not Irish. But while I’m pretending things about her I might as well pretend she’s Irish too.

  6. “Dobby will have to punish himself most grievously for coming to see you, sir. Dobby will have to shut his ears in the oven door for this.”

  7. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, pragmatic, bare knuckled political mover. And magic elf.

    And the the thing with the nuns doesn’t surprise me at all. From my years in the Catholic Church, I know they are the ones down on the street, doing the heavy lifting and dirty work of Catholic charity and missions of mercy. The bishops? Eh, not so much.

  8. Dennis even dug up the Brown Suit of Acceptance of Unpleasant Compromises for this occasion — which is a signal to the three Ohioans who think he’s not quite lefty enough that he’ll keep trying.

  9. [re=532310]Oblios Cap[/re]: Lollipop Guild represent, yo!

    From now on you’ll be history, and we will glorify your name! You will be a bust in the Healthcare Hall of Fame!

  10. I thought Fox News was trying to indicate a Homer Simpson-esque sound of defeat at realizing Kucinich is the tipping point, but then I realized (D-OH) meant Democrat from Ohio, not d’oh.

  11. Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight inches shorter than me, lol. We met online at an height gap dating site- E_l f_m_in_g l e @ c./o./m a nice and free place for Leggy- Women and Elfin Men, or Elfin Women and Leggy Men, to- interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends.

  12. [re=532308]JMP[/re]: [re=532314]Chernobyl Soup[/re]: But Dennis is half-Irish, so when he drunkenly assaults her with his wee dick later, would it then be appropriate?

    TWO-FOR-ONE TRUE FACT: Dennish Kucinich is the same age as Iggy Pop, and Iggy Pop is the same height as Dennis Kucinich’s wife.

  13. I think this HC reform is just a first step.

    Do you think that the shitballs known as the Healthcare Insurance industry was going to sit back and let “Single Payer” wipe them out? As soon as the rumbling began, everyone knew those fuckers were going to go all out to keep everything as is to keep their precious profits. And boy did they.

    No preznit before now could push anything like this through. Not even FDR.

    The best solution is Single Payer (believe me I know being from Canada City and all and having just endured major surgery and I still like my system) but it is unfortunately going to take small long steps that have to be fought every way because of the money involved and that certain relatively large percentage of your populace is incredibly retarded and dense.

    I think even the Kuch finally got that.

  14. [re=532353]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Well, FDR probably could have pushed a national health system through; remember that his attempt was thwarted by an inconvenient case of dying, then it was Truman who proved unable to complete the deal.

  15. [re=532317]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Actually, that’s David Byrne’s suit from Stop Making Sense. Strangely ironic here, considering that Kucinich has just started making sense.

  16. [re=532306]Hart88[/re]: There were a couple of commenters over at TPM calling him, among other things, a “corporate whore”.

    Those folks are just an ideologically flipped version of the Freepers freaking out over Scott Brown voting for the jobs bill.

  17. Fox News knows that Kucinich’s vote is the nail in the coffin. They’ve even written a Homer Simpsonesque “D-oh!” on their screen blurb.

  18. Why do DCers feel compelled to call a press conference about every little thing? We’ll know his vote after they vote! Can anyone help my addled brain understand??? Or are they all vying for some congressional award like the academy awards???
