Is anyone surprised that Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) changed his vote on health care to yes? I know - you're shocked - shocked - to hear the news, aren't you? After his magic carpet ride with The One, there really was no doubt that he would switch. Today's press conference to state his change of heart was just an exercise in self-importance - a naked ploy for press coverage and national attention.
The man is as far left as possible. The reason he voted against the original House bill is because the public option didn't go far enough. All the Chosen One had to do was assure Kucinich that this bill was just the beginning and that full-blown single payer was just a few steps down the road and Denny-boy was all over it like a rat on a moldy piece of cheese.
This whole spectacle was a waste of time.
