If I pointed to one thing that’s led to distrust and cynicism on Main Street, it’d be frivolous lawsuits. A prime example of what I personally consider frivolous can be credited to Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio). Anderson Cooper appears to agree with me about the uber-liberal Democrat because Cooper placed him on the ‘RidicuList’ after Kucinich filed a $150,000 lawsuit. Kucinich is seeking justice for a tooth.
Cooper and other media like Fox News reported Kucinich allegedly broke a tooth when he bit into a sandwich on or around April 17, 2008. The sandwich was served up in a cafeteria on Capitol Hill. There was an olive with pit allegedly intact in Kucinich’s sandwich.
In the Kucinich 'RidicuList' video, Cooper noted the Democrat lawmaker has filed other lawsuits in the past.
Does Kucinich see a convenient means of redistributing wealth in keeping with his socialist/progressive principles?
Maybe we could just write Kucinich’s lawsuit off as a pursuit of culinary justice.
If the Ohio lawmaker’s cracked tooth led to $150,000 in injuries, Kucinich might want to get a second opinion because his oral health caregiver appears to be a bit on the expensive side.
We could just write Kucinich off as another fleece bagger trying to pull the wool over someone’s eyes, but that might be perceived as extreme rhetoric by the progressive left.
