The Inescapable Sex Appeal of Dennis Kucinich

A group of bloggers and activists dedicated to raising awareness about Dennis Kucinich is celebrating his sexiness.  They spoke out in response to a slur by Glenn Beck (right) in which the commentator said the candidate physically appeals to his wife only because he drugs her.  The idea behind the new video may seem weird, but the bit actually is very funny.

I agree with Dale Headley on this. You are exactly right!

Who should be president - in order:
1) Mario Cuomo
2) Dennis Kucinich
3) Al Gore

I was at a house party in NH with the Kuciniches, and I gotta tell ya, when he smiles-those big brown twinkly eyes!  Wit like his is better than rohypnol any day.  Elizabeth, by the way, is an Oxford-educated knockout who converses comfortably with anyone.  This is the stage of the campaign when it is possible to personally speak with candidates: Take advantage.

Oh PLEASE! Like Glen Beck is the prettiest thing in Fake Journalism today! GET REAL! The punk’s birth certificate is a formal letter of apology from the Trojan Corporation, okay? Anyone still regularly tuning in to that steaming turd for any reason is just a useless tool for the GOP, and probably thinks the godless Manne Cuntler is cute. Dennis Kucinich neither seeks nor needs such the pathetically conceived defense against the mentally challenged attacks of a 3rd rate loser like Beck. Beck is just jealous that Dennis has a wife at all. Meanwhile, he’s forced to inflate his “dates” four or five times a night. Envy and jealousy are such an ugly pair.

What is Beck talking about.On the richter scale of who needs drug help to attract women the first 100 slots are filled by republicans.I am sure Lynne Cheney is no stranger to drugs or the double bag method in case Dick’s bag breaks.Republicans just cannot get over their envy of Democratic wives.When your pin up girl is Ann Coulter on a broomstick one can understand why.

These are excellent posts by tommo and David.  Note: the full transcriptof the June 28, 2007 Democratic candidate forum can be found at:

http://kucinich.us/node/4765

As Michael Moore and John Conyers jointly noted, Kucinich is the “only” candidate who gets it on health care reform.  Conyers-Kucinich (HR 676) provides for a single payer system that would eliminate all health care insurers and HMO’s which presently account for 31% of the spiraling U.S. healthcare costs.  All the others offer variations of a sham “universal coverage” plan that amounts to subsidies for the corrupt, healthcare insurance industry.

On issue after issue, Dennis Kucinich stands head and shoulders above the rest.  If there were a way to pierce the corporate media veil, to connect candidates to the issues that truly matter to the vast majority of the electorate—the middle and working classes—Kucinich would win in a landslide.  Unfortunately that veil is a thick one that can be pierced only by the tireless efforts of those who see through it.

Beck and Coulter are Nazis.  Heil Hitler!  They both should be driven from the public airwaves.

Kucinich is a great speaker.  I saw him in person and we all agreed with him on point after point, until the whole crowd was clapping and cheering as loudly as we could.  He was fantastic.

If you have never seen it find his “Prayer For America”.  Thrilling!

I just read CNN’s coverage of last night’s Democratic debates.  Kuchinich and Gravel are given one setence in the last line of the article.  It simply says that Kucinich and Gravel “also participated”.  That’s it.

Beck is just so “Cutsie” with those “flirty, flirty eyes!

I wonder if I would laugh if I caught him cross-derssing in the privacy of his own home? I wonder if I would slap the white off his ass?

I wonder why they won’t let me rule the world?

Beck along with the likes of Ann the Axe bitch are great examples of what the word conservatism now stands for.

Integrity IS sexy. Trumps eight years of lewd attitude.

Of course, the Kucinich/truth haters go after his appearance.  Two minutes of serious information about him from someone that has credibility would put him ahead of everybody.

Beauty is as beauty does.

The only time I can stand to look at Bush is when Letterman or Stewart plays a clip.

Here are a couple of Glenn Beck classics:

May 17, 2005 Clear Channel radio broadcast of “The Glenn Beck Program:  “Hang on; let me tell you what I’m thinking.  I’m thinking about killing Michael Moore, and I’m wondering if I could kill him myself, or if I would need hire somebody to do it.  No, I think I could.  I think he could be looking me in the eye, and I could just be choking the life out—is this wrong?”

May 11, 2006 radio broadcast:  “I say we nuke the bastards.  In fact, it doesn’t have to be Iran.  It can be everwhere, any place that disagrees with me.”

Beck is but a reflection of the sorry state of the conglomerated corporate media which alternates between propaganda and infotainment.  The more you watch, the less you know.

If anyone would “make out” with Dennis it would be Beck. He seems to be pre-occupied with sex dreams. Beck is obviously in love with himself. I never stop on his channel.

The man might not be the sexist man but he has a brain and since when looks make the better politican?

Does anyone think that Bush or Chaney are the best looking pres and vip?  I think not, but Kennisch will not be elected because tall men are more likely to be elected than short, and the more honest the person the more less to be elected.
