The Kucinich Conspiracy (And Other Alt-Rock Band Names)
I just logged on to Google News to retrieve the article I was planning on blogging about today concerning Dennis Kucinich's court victory and triumphant admission to Tuesday's Nevada Democratic debates. Simultaneously, I was searching Youtube for video of the debate to somehow mock (attention ladies: a man who can multi-task AND ridicule. The perfect father?). I was surprised to find that there WERE no videos of the debate featuring Kucinich, and even more SHOCKED—okay, kind of pissed at this point—to find out that a mere hour before the debate, a Nevada Supreme Court ruling had overturned the initial decision and barred Kucinich from appearing. Now whether you're a fan of the man or not (I am, and you can savage me in the comments section if you feel so inclined), you've got to admit what's going on here is pretty fucking outrageous. The whole point of general elections, at least in spirit, is to maximize the choices given the public. We've already got our choices limited by certain Constitutional requirements:
The President must be over 35 years of age, a citizen, and born in the United States.
He must be a he.
He must be white.
He must be enormously wealthy.
He must be of three major religions.
He must have strong ties to public interest groups and lobbies.
