Fight of the Week: Dennis “Media Killer” Kucinich Versus Ted “The Trivializer” Koppel.

In New Hampshire Debate, Democratic Underdogs Refuse To Take Media Bully Lying Down

If you didn’t have a ringside seat, underdog Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich mounted a courageous defense of the political process in a heavyweight bout with newsman and bullyboy Ted Koppel Tuesday night. As moderator of the Democratic Presidential Debate in New Hampshire, Koppel came out the aggressor, often pinning all nine candidates to the ropes over demeaning issues such the battle for endorsements and the size of campaign war chests. Late in the confrontation, having backed the three least-regarded challengers--Kucinich, Reverend Al “Silver Tongue” Sharpton and Ambassador “Auntie” Carole Braun--into a corner, Koppel demanded to know when the three would be “throwing in the towel” on the election. After a counterpunch from Sharpton about money and politics, the underweight Kucinich let loose a ferocious counterattack. With a flurry of deft verbal jabs, the “lefty” took the overbearing media hack to task for trivializing the debate. Having caught the Nero of Nightline with his guard down, Kucinich took center ring with a series of piercing statements as to his own credibility. Finally, staring down the suddenly sheepish paperboy, Kucinich finished him off with a deft apology for having become “an inconvenience” to the Presidential race.

Does anyone really think that Kucinich stands a snowball's chance?

by Max Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2003 at 1:26 PM

Kucinich is a joke. Anyone that supports him is a joke. Anyone that campaigns for him is a joke.

And anyone that votes for him is a person of subnormal intelligence.

But by all means. Throw your vote away!

Hee hee hee!

They will Welstone him if he ever does manage to climb out of the media black hole.

Wellstone him?

by nonanarchist2133 Wednesday, Dec. 17, 2003 at 6:44 PM

Two things wrong with that theory:

1. Wellstone wasn't murdered.

2. Dennis "Mind-Control Satellites" Kucinich has not a single shred of hope of EVER appearing on this nation's political consciousness...unless he snaps completely (and that's not too far away) and tries to assasinate someone to impress Jodie Foster.

kucinich

Kucinich is probably not running to be president, but his presence is important all the same. All voices across the political spectrum must be heard. We've had members of the right wing ruling us for four years, and they are the biggest jokers on the face of the earth--I say let the working class's voice be heard too.

I don't think Dennis represents anyone

by Barney Saturday, Feb. 14, 2004 at 6:23 PM

Except the lunatic fringe. The kind of sandal-wearing "peaceniks" who are all rooting for the Iraqi so-called resitance.
