Kucinich boned again

This time, it was NBC who dis-invited Dennis Kucinich to its sham of a debate. After inviting him just days before.


Speaking of invitations, I took MSNBC.com up on theirs when they asked if anyone would like to submit a question for tonight's debate. Here's my question:

Nice, huh?

Yesterday Rep. Dennis Kucinich has sued NBC-TV in Las Vegas over his exclusion from the MSNBC debate.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Kucinich filed his lawsuit seeking a temporary restraining order allowing him to participate in the nationally-televised debate among Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama. So far, there's no word on whether he'll succeed in either delaying the debate or getting NBC to overturn their exclusion.


From the Las Vegas R-J: High Court takes up NBC appeal on Kucinich
(apparently Dennis got a court order to make NBC accept him for the debate)

Lawyers representing NBC Universal Inc. today filed an emergency petition with the Nevada Supreme Court asking that Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich be barred from tonight’s debate at Cashman Center. The petition states that a District judge didn’t have jurisdiction this morning when he ordered NBC to let Kucinich take part in the debate. The Supreme Court is expected to make a decision today.

Hey genius, how much will you contribute to Kucinich 2008 from the profits you make on your shitty pathetic T-shirts? Huh?

Regardless of how nonviable I think Kucinich is, he should be allowed to debate. I like him and I agree with everything he says, unfortunately the media has decided to censor him.

Reminds me of the Beatles...

Have you seen the little piggies
Crawling in the dirt
And for all the little piggies
Life is getting worse
Always having dirt to play around in.

Have you seen the bigger piggies
In their starched white shirts
You will find the bigger piggies
Stirring up the dirt
Always have clean shirts to play around in.

In their sties with all their backing
They don't care what goes on around
In their eyes there's something lacking
What they need's a damn good whacking.

Everywhere there's lots of piggies
Living piggy lives
You can see them out for dinner
With their piggy wives
Clutching forks and knives to eat their bacon.
