Leave Dennis Kucinich Alone!
By Billy Cox

What is it about UFOs - exactly, specifically - that clamps the
mouths of normally garrulous politicians into mute, igneous
rock? Seriously. What are they afraid of?

After all, we're talking about a species of human being that, as
a general rule, eagerly dispenses first-person tales of the
ultimate metaphysical encounter - dialogues with God HimSelf.
Without offering a shred of corroborating data. No photos, no
video, no partially redacted government documents, no medical
reports of associated radiation burns. We take these people at
their word as we trust them to steward our money. And we keep
electing them to office. Again and again. And again.

Last month, following an Exopolitical X-Conference symposium at
the National Press Club in Washington, hopes were raised that
presidential contender Dennis Kucinich might be the guy to
advocate government declassification of UFO material on the
campaign trail. Guess that's the load you tote when you're the
most progressive candidate in the field. But a Washington Post
query to the congressman's office drew a churlish buzzkill. "If
you have a serious question," responded Natalie Laber, "just ask
me. If not, just keep your silly questions to yourself."

But that was so four weeks ago.

Kucinich should've informed Laber he'd actually seen a UFO in
Washington state once upon a time with his pal Shirley MacLaine.
At least, that's what she claims in an upcoming book called
"Sage-ing While Age-ing." He was visiting her Pacific Northwest
home when a huge, noiseless, triangular-shaped craft hovered for
about 10 minutes before vanishing. "Dennis," writes MacLaine,
"found his encounter extremely moving."

No other details are available, and Kucinich hasn't held a press
conference to disavow it. So now the Cleveland Plain Dealer is
actually trying to get Kucinich to do some 'splainin'. To which
De Void replies: Give it up, CPD! Because guess what? De Void
has been trying to get presidential candidates on record about
their UFO interests since July. And not even Mike "I'm polling
at zero percent" Gravel will return calls requesting elaboration
about his videotaped, off-the-cuff remarks advocating disclosure
earlier this year.

Hillary Clinton won't discuss White House efforts to that end
during her husband's tenure, but that's understandable, since a
front-runner has only one place to go by venturing into the no-
script zone. More disappointing is second-tier candidate Gov.
Bill Richardson (De Void 6/15/07, 8/17/07), who's got nothing to
lose as he continues to pose as a populist.

So yes, it'd be great to get Kucinich to show a little
leadership on UFOs. But he can't. Because he's just a
politician. It's not his fault.
