Whilst painting yesterday afternoon after work, I was listening to C-SPAN radio (the local NPR station is having a fund drive and I can’t take their incessant whining about their stupid business plan) and heard the entirety of Dennis Kucinich’s official announcement. He seems like a decent enough chap, but my word he’s a loon. Without exaggeration, he’s to the left of Leonid Breznev. He wants to socialize virtually the entire economy and his foreign policy is slightly less hawkish than that of Switzerland. Granting that he has absolutely no chance of winning the nomination, he’s still rather scary.
John Hawkins has some choice quotes from and analysis of the speech.
