Dennis Kucinich in Washington Post online interview
Tomorrow, Tuesday, 11 am. Jason, a local Kucinich campaign leader, encourages us to get involved, and tells us how:

1. Go to
2. A screen may pop-up where you enter age, gender and zipcode.
3. In the righthand column there should be a link to the forum.
4. After clicking on this link, you should be able to see the candidate's questions and answers; scroll down to click on "get new responses" or "submit question."

Please feel free to ask Dennis some tough questions--he's good with those, and will surprise a lot of people who are used to the usual crap coming from politicians, or the especially stinky crap coming from the administration.

Then again, you might want to toss Kucinich a few hanging curveballs that he can hit out of the park. Here are some suggestions (and feel free to e-mail me with others!):
  • Representative Kucinich, your positions on the issues seem to be excellent, and tens of millions of Americans agree with you--on NAFTA, on the war, on universal health care. Why are numbskulls like Bush and Lieberman considered mainstream while you're supposed to be the radical? I think everybody's got it all backwards.
  • Mr. Kucinich: I REALLY want to vote for you, but I just have to be sure of one thing. The first Bush administration pardoned several of the criminals who were involved in the Iran-Contra scandal while they worked in the Reagan administration. Some of them are now "serving" in the current Bush administration. When you are president, you're not planning on pardoning any of the criminals in the current administration, are you?
  • Representative Kucinich: When you're elected, will you appoint Al Sharpton as your press secretary? I mean, you're the better candidate and all, but I really like hearing him talk!
  • Mr. Kucinich: There seems to be some debate as to whether Bush pursues his insane policies because he's stupid or because he's evil. Where do you stand on this?
  • President Kucinich? Do you mind if I call you President Kucinich? It makes me feel so good. Um...that was my question.
