…I promised myself that I wouldn’t inject politics into this day of remembrance, but U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) has done something that totally irks me.
First, Rep. Kucinich was the lone member of Congress to vote against House Resolution 643; a resolution recognizing September 11 as a day of rememberance, extending sympathies to those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, and their families, honoring the heroic actions of our nation’s first responders and Armed Forces, and reaffirming the commitment to defending the people of the United States against any and all future challenges. [House Roll Call #866]
And then, I received this piece of information in my e-mail inbox:
Dennis Kucinich has really done it this time. He went on Syrian television and blasted Bush and the “illegal occupation” in Iraq. Well .. I guess every organization has to have it’s little nutcase. This footstool is beyond redemption.
Here’s a link to the video.
Can you believe that this guy wants reparations for the Iraqi people? Yeah, he said it, and all I have to say is that this short, little elf-looking creature had better not be invited to speak at the Democratic National Convention next year.
