Dennis Kucinich Surprisingly Drops Out of the Presidential Race

In a surprise move Representative Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) has decided to drop out of the Democratic nomination race.  The move came as he is facing a tough primary for the Democratic nomination for his House seat.  The former mayor of Cleveland and 6-term Congressman has 4 opponents going into the March 4th primary.  Joe Cimperman, one of his opponents and a Cleveland City Council member, has accused Kucinich of being a “part-time Congressman” who has been more concerned about pursuing the Presidency than being a Congressman.

This is all coming right after Kucinich posted “An Urgent Personal Appeal” on his Congressional election website.

Kucinich now plan on introducing a movement to impeach President Bush, similar to the movement that he made to impeach Vice President Cheney last year.

Is Kucinich a “part-time Congressman”?  Perhaps.  But I think the Congress accomplishes more when he’s gone than when he’ introducing motions to impeach people who we KNOW won’t get impeached.  Stop wasting the Congress’s time, Mr. Kucinich and introduce a real bill.

Done Ranting,

    See video: Now that Kucinich has dropped out of the race, it is time for a Gravelution.

    So…. You need a new dark horse candidate?

    Well, you’re in luck. In Arizona, there are several dozen candidates to choose from due to a strange provision in the state’s election law. To get on the primary ballot, you only needed to file an application.

    If you visit, you can read (and watch!) the policies of all the dark-horse candidates, from the eye-patch-wearing Republican Sean “CF” Murphy to the ultra-lib, trash-talking, conceptual-artist Democrat Libby “Doctress Neutopia” Hubbard.

    And all of them are competing in a “reality journalism” experiment for the Tucson Weekly’s endorsement.

    Hubbard, by the way, will interest a lot of Kucinich voters.

    On Wednesday night, the candidates had a bonafide debate, where they discussed everything from using obese people’s fat to mitigate the energy crisis to whether we should set up a prison island for america’s criminals.

    Stop on by and check it out:

    Good luck with that. I really don’t think Gravel is going to get much of a bump from Kucinich dropping out, but some of the “I don’t like the Big 3” people may go to him. We’ll just have to wait and see.
