A Jovial Kucinich On A Moonlit Night

More

Rep. Dennis Kucinich happened upon a group of reporters kibbitizing outside the Radisson Hotel in downtown Manchester around midnight this morning.

The reporters seemed to have the same thought simultaneously: "UFOs!"

Kucinich was indulgent.

"Well, what I really wanted to say at the debate, was, 'Yes, Tim, I have seen UFOs, and an alien said to be, 'Take me to your leader.' And I told him, well, I don't think our leader is going to want to meet with an illegal alien."

One of us asked Kucinich his thoughts about Gov. Bill Richardson's musing that the U.S. government is concealing UFO documents from the public.

"Well that means you know he's running for Senate in New Mexico," Kucinich said, inching toward the door of the hotel to join his waiting wife.

But he stopped himself. "You know... Rasmussen has me at 7 percent now in New Hampshire," he said. "If I come in third here, that changes everything."

Indeed.
