puppetmaster

When I saw the headline on Drudge, I initially thought it was some sort of political joke. (Oh, and I was so right. In a way.) "Kucinich shows off ventriloquism skills..." it said and I was giddy thinking that possibly, maybe, the story would include ol' kooky Dennis playing with a ventriloquist's dummy. I crossed my fingers and hoped, "please, please, PLEASE show him with a puppet" and clicked the link...

YES!

Except, OHDEARGODNO...
Kucinich had his hand puppet sing "God Bless America," and the weirdness of it all prompted Oliver to ask, "How do you keep winning elections?"

"You're going to have to ask Dennis," said Kucinich, via his puppet.


I may have nightmares.

Too bad the camera didn't show the picture on Air-force One last year when the President had his hand up Dennis' butt to get him to vote yes on Obamacare.

The Boy Wonder is Living Proof that the Founders messed up and should have put in Term Limits back during the Constitutional Convention.

I agree with Guffaw, it's the 'shrooms.

Barny Frank is still more embarrassing, that being said, this is almost as shameful...

Mike W. said...

Hey, at least you don't have to deal with Joe Biden....

Oh wait, I don't have to anymore either!

Weer'd: Barny Frank PAYS to get the 'puppet treatment'. Pays extra for the "Wayland job."

Weer'd Beard said...

North: LOL!

Ewww, but we all know what kind of humor amuses me! ; ]

It's a pity that DENNIS! can't sit on his own lap, given how much he looks like a dummy.

Mike W. said...

He can sit on Barney Frank's lap anyday ;) ;)

They keep sending him. He must represent them well. Go figure.

Still, I bet you can find Kucinich voters who will tell you Sarah Palin can't be taken seriously as a presidential candidate...

I'll just be forwarding my shiny new shrink bills to your P.O. box, then.

Thankfully it was only 27 seconds out of my life. . .
Wasn't this guy the darling of Libertarians across the country back in 1989-91 when he was Mayor of Cleveland or some such place?
Or am I thinking of some other strange politician (I know, redundancy).
