It was a hilarious moment in Gibbs recent rant when he said the crazy, drugged up left won’t be happy until they have Kucinich as president. (I myself was more likely to want the Pentagon abolished than trust that two faced little freak)
The Nation had an interesting reaction to this
What Gibbs forgot, of course, was that Kucinich played a pivotal role in advancing Obama’s candidacy for the presidency. On the day of the 2008 Democratic caucuses in Iowa, Kucinich told his supporters that if they did not have a critical mass of backers at individual caucuses, they should throw in with Obama as the most viable progressive. That was a critical decision, since Obama only narrowly beat former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, who was making a big play for liberal backing.
Yeah, there was that betrayal. And there was that flashier, more recent one, when he sold out the public option.
And just in case anyone thought these betrayals didn’t matter, right on cue, with Gibbs sticking to his attacks on liberals, Kucinich is quick to deliver the 1-2 punch by declaring he won’t run and asking for unity
here’s to the new PUMAs!
And all together now: where is the left gonna go now?
Obama apologists feel vindicated – it has to be right since Kucinich signed on it. A repeat on the trashing of the public option – only now it’s the B0bots thrown in the garbage.
It’s the big bat signal in the sky: Bobots, roll over.
Or in Michae Moore words: “You suck. Now send money.”
