The Corpus Callosum

Finally,
we have a nice succinct statement from a politician on the
subject of health care coverage.



I know this is controversial, in the sense that, so far, the mainstream
operatives in both major parties reject this.  Still, I truly

Kucinich.
 


Most
of the stated objections are based upon ideological concerns, totally
divorced from any sort of objectivity.  That is the case
within the Republican party.  

Within the Democratic party, it is probably more accurate to say that
it is concern about corporate influence that leads to the failure to
support the only sensible course of action.

Ironically, from my perspective, the Republicans are being more honest
about it.  At least they say what they believe, even if what
they believe is wrong.

    Everything Kucinich said was true, until the end, when he said that “When I’m the Democratic candidate… ”
