Dennis Kucinich urges both of his supporters to text message for peace


They say there’s a fine line between brilliance and insanity. But nobody ever mentions the other line – the one between insanity and just plain dumb. That’s where Dennis Kucinich, America’s Next Top Egomaniac©, is hovering with his most recent stroke of genius. In his latest, greatest cry for attention, our lovable media whore is asking folks to send text messages for peace. I’m not making this up. The Kucinich campaign – also known as The Little Engine That Really Couldn’t, But, Due To Deep Insecurity Issues, Refused To Give Up -- says it will compile all the messages they receive and forward them to the White House. Kucinich’s goal apparently is to bombard the White House with so many messages that President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, suffering from a brief attack of actual feelings, will read the heartfelt notes and call for an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. However, a White House spokesman says the the president instead plans to reply to Kucinich’s text with with a brief and straight-forward message, probably “LOL LIL MAN.” – T.K. Kim
