Presidential Gaffes: Dennis Kucinich

Kucinich’s grassroots movements (which include his wifeElizabeth Harper, who made a stop at the latest T. Don Hutto prison protest in Tyler) have won the hearts of a small chunk of Americans (about 3% of Democratic voters) and political activists, including Ani DiFranco and Dave Matthews. The bold congressman was the first to birth the idea of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney’s impeachment, and is one of the two congressmen who voted against the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Still, the little congressmen who could can’t seem to garner any respect, from his political peers or the media. He may not have the fattest resume or be the ideal presidential candidate, but he keeps on trying to “get the message out.”

Here we have Kucinich hitting a low note reciting “Sixteen Tons” during a speech about the nation’s economic hardships. His rendition makes it easy to simultaneously like and pity him. Feel free to sing along:

 

“You load sixteen tons, and what do you get?

Another day older and deeper in debt.

Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go;
I owe my soul to the company store...”
