Why I am losing respect for Dennis Kucinich

BuzzFlash links to this Nicholas Kristof op-ed with the line ‘Will Senators in the Pocket of Insurance Companies Let John Die? Looks Like It’: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/29/opinion/29kristof.html

But BuzzFlash reads the article with a bias. Everything Kristof says applies just as well to Dennis Kucinich, only his excuses are different. I liken the situation to the crucifixion of Brian, because the Romans may have fastened Brian to the cross, but the People’s Front of Judaea left him to die for the cause; Kucinich is the People’s Front in this story, and readily you will find him speaking as if on behalf of the very ailing people whose deaths he would allow in his twilight struggle against economic exploiters.

That one night of ruined mood was just the beginning. I have yet to hear this sourpuss talk about healthcare without launching himself into a tirade against rapacious capitalists. Hey, I don’t like them, either, Dennis, but shut your spittle-spraying face.
