Kucinich Wins Like the French and the French fight like the Ferengi
Long regarded as a heretic on Ferenginar, traditionalists celebrated the defeat of Dennis Kucinich on March 6th. The orthodox Ferengi despised Kucinich because he was a caring, passionate man who ineffectively pushed his principled agenda. He stood alone, speaking the truth about power and corruption on Ferenginar.
He was one of the few who truly and ineffectually represented the Birkenstock consumer and not the competent business interests and politicians who accomplished things and improved the standard of living, albeit incrementally. Kucinich stood steadfastly against such incremental improvements. He was consistent in his opposition to any improvement at all if he didn’t get his way, whether it be a Department of Ventriloquism or goverment controlled KFCs.
In the end Kucinich was unsuccessful at being resolutely unsuccessful. When he had it in his power to stop significant and meaningful healthcare reform, he flinched and extended coverage to 34 million, when he could have left them out in the cold fantasizing about a single payer pipe dream.
It is this final failing that makes him worthy of Unpublished Guy’s scorn. I’ve worked hard to maintain a consistent level of inability. Dennis Kucinich’s quest for notable record of failure fell short. I find Kucinich’s career just as appalling as a Ferengi would find a PBS pledge drive.
