Who?

Down but Not Out, Kucinich Keeps On Fighting

This reminds me of those stories of Japanese solidiers on islands in the South Pacific who keep fighting for years because no one told them that the war was over.

  1. It’s revealing that you would draw an analogy between the effort of a longshot US presidential candidate trying to build a movement for 2008 by organizing to impact his party’s platform in 2004 and the ignorance remnants of a defeated and despised enemy.

    Condolences,
    Nathan Callahan

  2. Actually I was thinking of a Gillagan’s Island episode…

    Yeesh-and they say that the Right has no senes of humor.

  3. Plus I was thinking about people who don’t know when to quit.

  4. May I suggest we compile a list of people who don’t know when to quit? Let me start with two:
    Barry Goldwater
    Abraham Lincoln

  5. Methinks you are taking my flippant commentary on Kucinich a bit too seriously.

    On a serious note: I have no problem with his continued campaign, but do you really think it amonts to anything more than a vanity candidacy at this point (which is what it was from the beginning?)

    And, in terms of comparisons, at least Goldwater and Lincoln had a shot at their party’s nomination.

  6. Let�s all say a nondenominational prayer that this election year doesn’t set a precedent. We are two months away from the Democratic National Convention and John Kerry is the nominee. Period. End of discussion. That isn�t a good thing. A lively intramural debate could still impact the Democratic platform. It may only result in small changes, but so what? That may be Kucinich�s goal. Labeling him a vanity candidate - or a Japanese soldier who doesn�t know the war is over - makes what he�s saying easy to ignore. It�s also a great political game. OK. I�m in. Kucinich has no hope to win. But is that so bad? At least we can console ourselves with the fact that he�s not part of the antagonist/protagonist package that the �news media� needs in order to write their tit for tat analysis and sell ad space.

  7. Well, this year isn’t all that different from 2000. We knew it was Gore almost immediately and it was clearlty Bush-Gore by March.

    I would prefer more competition-so we have no argument there. Kucinich, however, is more a novelty than a serious candidate.

  8. A “serious candidate” meaning well-financed by the usual suspects. A “novelty” meaning unpopular with the folks who think the last episode of Friends is a cultural milestone.

  9. No, “serious” as in “has an actual chance of winning” and “novelty” in that he thinks that thinking happy thoughts will bring peace to the world. He is by no definition a mainstream candidate. He is no different in my mind than the Libertarians who run every year-there simply isn’t any way they will win, even if they had a billion dollars to spend on their campaigns.

    And before you tell me that money will get you elected, please refer to Presidents Perot and Forbes.

    And I couldn’t care less about “Friends".
