Musings by Tucker Carlson: Why Can’t Dennis Win?


MSNBC’s Tucker Carlson, famous for pioneering a resurgence of bow-ties on network television, wondered aloud on live television the other night why the Democrats aren’t backing Congressman Dennis Kucinich as the presidential nominee. While he’s not the first person to ponder such questions, he is the first one to attempt it without first taking bong rips, eating through a bag full of Taco Bell Gorditas, vomiting in his college roommate’s laundry hamper, and then mumbling something about wanting to get high with Snoop Dogg. -- Jared Klaus
