Wolf & the Seven Dwarfs

I cannot bear the Democrats. If I vote I suppose (despite intense lobbying to the contrary) it will be for Kucinich. Why? He is straightfoward about what the Dems ought to be for: end the war - now; provide single payer, tax-finded universal health care; support trade unions, etc. ... I couldn't bear to watch the debate last night; fortunately I had the opportunity instead to hear local blues. But this from (a very funny report) in The Guardian -

"Chris Dodd's blog has calculated the speaking times for each candidates:

Obama: 16.0 minutes

Clinton: 14.26

Edwards: 11.42

Richardson: 10.48

Kucinich: 9.02

Dodd: 8.28

Biden: 7.58

Gravel: 5.37

...and CNN host Wolf Blitzer spoke for 13.24 minutes."

So, unfortunately, it only seems like my title is a mixed-up plot from a fairy tale.

OK, OK- I watched... and that Gravel guy, who I never heard of, was quite the breath of fresh air, at least for his 5.37. Kucinich may have the best policies, but his "charisma" is in the high negative integers. And for what it's worth, Obama definitely had the presidential tone and demeanor down a good two notches over the rest.

And I forgot to mention that Hillary should've been pimp slapped for blaming... you got it, the Iraqi people for the mess we now call Iraq.
