"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," a spokesman, Nathan White said in a statement.I have no idea whether Kucinich believes that nonsense or not; for all I know, he thinks of himself as the much-beloved crusading avenger of the left, and not some guy who couldn't break 5% in any 2008 primary (to be fair, he did manage a bit better results in 2004). Or maybe this is how he thinks you audition for a spot on MSNBC.
But bragging about "requests from people in twenty states"? C'mon -- I'm relatively certain that if I put in a little effort, I could generate requests from people in twenty states to "move and run in their area." One of the very first things to know about politics in the United States is how unfathomably big the nation is, and how having enough people agree with you to pack a room doesn't actually mean much, as far as political impact is concerned.
By the way, I'm no Sherman: if nominated, I'd have a good laugh, but if elected, I certainly would serve. That should be a good enough warning, no?
