Liberal firebrand and Keebler Elf lookalike Dennis Kucinich spent 14 years getting reelected as a U.S. Congressman. But now that redistricting has eliminated the position of House Rep. from Ohio's 10th district, Kucinich is suddenly a free agent (don't worry, he's not running for president. Yet.). But while Ohio may have lost a district, Washington gained one. And it's apparently looking like rather attractive place for him to do some legislating.
The Seattle Timesreports that what started as rumors about Kucinich's interest in Washington State politics has graduated to full-on open speculation.
A call to Kucinich's office revealed a staff not the least bit interested in tamping down the rumors.
"After people found out that Congressman Kucinich's district could be eliminated or substantially altered in congressional redistricting by the Ohio Legislature's Republican majority, Congressman Kucinich received requests from people in twenty states, including Washington State, encouraging him to move and run in their area."
So what would a Kucinich for Congress campaign look like in Washington? One can only hope that it would involve as much creepy ventriloquy and broken bottles on the head as he showcased on The Daily Show.
