This is SUCH bullshit. Today’s Rethug debate in Iowa had the yahoo Alan Keyes of all freaking people..but Kucinich wasn’t allowed in Thursday’s final Democratic debate in Iowa because:

He didn’t open an office in the state with paid employees..only volunteers apparently. But Keyes? Hell I didn’t even know that fuckwit was running, although according to Eugene Robinson tonight on Countdown Keyes runs every election cycle for President..its his only job apparently. Back to my man Kucinich, his office released the following statement regarding the horseshit excuse given him by the idiots in Iowa:

“The Iowa caucuses have been portrayed as having national implications, and if the Register has decided to use hair-splitting technicalities to exclude the leading voice of the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party, then the entire process is suspect,”

Christ, this pisses me off so bad..I am going to hunt down a bottle of wine shortly. The only question is..will Chardonnay go with homemade Chili? I hope that a million locust invade Iowa..wait..its winter..ok, I hope they get icestorms every day of the week this winter..real nasty ones..especially for the asshats that made this bone-headed decision to uninvite Kucinich.

The picture is what Iowa is best known for shitty chandeliers and of course corn :p
