The Nut from Ohio who wears roadkill on his head for a hairstyle, Dennis Kucinich, is dropping out of the presidential race.
How devastating! And here we thought he had a real shot at the Downie nomination! Darn darn darn!
Democrat Kucinich quits White House race
Democrat Dennis Kucinich is abandoning his second, long-shot bid for the White House as he faces a tough fight to hold onto his other job — U.S. congressman.
In an interview with Cleveland's Plain Dealer, the six-term House member said he was quitting the race and would make a formal announcement on Friday.
"I will be announcing that I'm transitioning out of the presidential campaign," Kucinich said. "I'm making that announcement tomorrow about a new direction."
Kucinich has received little support in his presidential bid; he got 1 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary and was shut out in the Iowa caucuses. He did have a devoted following.
The Little Nutcase is facing a primary challenge for his House seat. Wouldn't it be hilarious if he loses that seat, too? Hey, folks of his district - how about making it happen?
