I know he's often portrayed as - and seems to be - a little nutty, but only one member of congress says things like this:
Outgoing Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) -- who lost a brutal primary battle on Tuesday to Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D-OH) -- vehemently criticized the Obama administration's program of targeted killings of US citizens abroad without due process, declaring it a "dangerous" violation of the Constitution that ought to meet resistance from Democrats and Republicans alike.
Asked for comment Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-CA) both claimed to be unfamiliar with the administration's legal rationale.
There's talk of Kucinich running for Governor of Ohio or carpetbagging to a congressional position in Washington state. I do hope he lands somewhere.
Actually, there are a few other congress people who talk like this. One of them is Ron Paul, who is often portrayed as - and seems to be - a little nutty. And as much as i disagree with his apocalyptic anti-government vision and distrust him over his newsletters, i'm glad he's running in the Republican primary.

anyone who speaks out with a reasoned opinion is clearly a nut.
why do you have to ruffle feathers? any reasonable person would go along with the status quo.
as my mom told me once - "now isn't the time". it's actually never the time, but that's besides the point. just shut up and eat your wheaties.
