Person of the Day: Dennis Kucinich
The Corporate Media will probably overlook Dennis Kucinich's bull's-eyes in last night's debate. Here are two of them:
On the War Vote:
"I honor the people who served. We owe them a debt of gratitude. But the people who sent those soldiers, they should never have been sent there in the first place...This war was based on lies. If all my colleagues...would commit and not offer a funding bill. Just say the war is over. No money. Bring them home. Cut off the funding. Senator Clinton says, 'This is George Bush's war.' Oh no. This is a teachable moment here. This war belongs to the Democratic Party who were put in charge by the people in the last election by the thought that they were going to end the war. They haven't. I'm urging all the candidates here. Don't give them any more money. The money's in the pipeline now, enough to bring them home. And let's make this a productive evening.
