Is Kucinich Actually a Republican?
According to Neal Starkman, Bush's popularity is apparently mysterious:
It's increasingly obvious, for example, that none of the so-called theories can explain President Bush's popularity, such as it is. Even at this date in his presidency, after all that has happened, the president's popularity hovers at around 50 percent -- an astonishingly high figure, I believe, given the state of people's lives now as opposed to four years ago.On the other hand, he has an explanation:
When we combine the above with Kucinich's demonstrated thinking ability, as indicated below:
The answer, I'm afraid, is the factor that dare not speak its name. It's the factor that no one talks about. The pollsters don't ask it, the media don't report it, the voters don't discuss it.
I, however, will blare out its name so that at last people can address the issue and perhaps adopt strategies to overcome it.
It's the "Stupid factor," the S factor: Some people -- sometimes through no fault of their own -- are just not very bright.
it should be clear that Kucinich has gone Republican on us.
DES MOINES, Iowa - Federal spending was the topic and Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich (news - web sites) came prepared with a pie chart to argue his point about a bloated Pentagon (news - web sites) budget.
But although many listened to Tuesday's presidential debate, few could see the Ohio congressman's prop.
The debate was broadcast only on National Public Radio.
I won't do more than mention that Howard Dean's announcement of his favorite book of the New Testament showed he has been moving in the same direction.
