Kuchinich and the UFO Flap

The Dastardly Duo is jacking with me again and messing up my "edit post" pages. Even after "saving to draft" and/ or "publish post", when I click back on it to complete editing, I get a blank page - although clicking on "publish" results in a published post. The following two articles in this post have not been edited. To access videos, type in the urls.
Re: the mention of polls. Remember that polls can be manipulated according to the wording of the questions. I daresay the question about ghosts at Halloween was intended to leave the impression that people believed in Halloween type spookies; it is possible that some do but do believe in spirit entities of a different sort.

"Matt, Al And Meredith Believe In UFOs, Curry Undecided"

Huffington Post | January 16, 2008 03:51 PM


On the "Today" show Wednesday the hosts discussed who believes in UFOs. Al Roker and Matt Lauer both do, and listen carefully for Meredith Vieira saying "I do" as well. But, Ann Curry is undecided. Nonetheless, Dennis Kucinich and Shirley MacLaine would probably approve. "

Millions Of Americans With Kucinich On UFO Belief

BOSTON (CBS) ― Do you believe in unidentified flying objects -- UFOs? A third of Americans do. One in seven claims to have seen one.

And that group includes a presidential candidate.

A lot of voters might find this the most believable claim they've heard in this race.

But while politicians may laugh at UFO sightings, millions of Americans apparently aren't in on the joke. 34 percent of Americans say they believe in ghosts, according to a pre-Halloween poll by The Associated Press and Ipsos. That's the same proportion who believe in unidentified flying objects - or UFOs- exceeding the 19 percent who accept the existence of spells or witchcraft.

Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich said he has seen a UFO, and he points out that, in more ways than one, he is not alone.

"You have to keep in mind that Jimmy Carter saw a UFO and also that more people in this country have seen UFOs than I think approve of George Bush's presidency," Kucinich said.

Despite millions believing in UFOs, this may have been a source of amusement for the political elites Tuesday night.

Massachusetts House Speaker Sal Dimasi said Wednesday night, "If by a UFO you mean an unexplainable phenomenon that flashes in, stays briefly, and leaves a mess in its wake, then yes, I have seen one -- Mitt Romney."

And Massachusetts State Treasurer Tim Cahill said he doesn't believe in UFO's, and if that means he's out of touch with a third of the public, "I'll take the other 67 percent," he said. "That's enough to get me re-elected."

But who are you going to believe? Those guys or your own eyes?

Keep in mind, it's government that consistently debunks a UFO phenomenon millions believe in.

And whatever you believe, believe this: that's a sign of a major credibility gap.

Kucinich: I Did See a UFO

Cleveland Plain Dealer | Sabrina Eaton | October 31, 2007 10:55 AM



At last night's debate between Democratic presidential candidates in Philadelphia, NBC's Tim Russert asked a flustered Cleveland Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich whether he'd seen a UFO.

Here's a transcript and YouTube video of their exchange:

RUSSERT: Shirley MacLaine writes in her new book that you sighted a UFO over her home in Washington state, that you found the encounter extremely moving, that it was a triangular craft, silent and hovering, that you felt a connection to your heart and heard directions in your mind. Now, did you see a UFO?

KUCINICH: Uh, I did. And the rest of the account. It was an unidentified flying object, OK? It's like, it's unidentified. I saw something. Now, to answer your question. I'm moving my, and I'm also going to move my campaign office to Roswell, New Mexico, and another one in Exeter, New Hampshire, OK? And also, you have to keep in mind that Jimmy Carter saw a UFO, and also that more people in this country have seen UFOs than I think approve of George Bush's presidency.

Well, did you hear that recently in the fair lil' town of Stephenville TX which I have no doubt is pretty conservative..dozens of people saw ufos. Even a guy using a scope on his gun took a good long hard look.. of course the military dismissed it as 'a commercial airliner' 'cause after all, all dozen of them must have been squinting funny...
silly all that hoopla but K. is not the first nor the last to have seen it. I think I would be pretty freaked out actually if I did see one myself..
however, I AM curious..

So am I, Ingrid. Even ruling out the apparently obvious koo-koo birds, there are an extraordinary number of sane, reasonable, responsible people who say they have seen a UFO of some sort. What the unidentified flying object was that they saw, I cannot say. But when airline pilots say an unidentified craft of strange configuration flew close to them then shot away at amazing speeds, one must wonder! If the pilots were koo-koo birds, then why were they allowed to pilot military or commercial planes?? Such pilots are supposed to be intelligent, educated, psychologically stable individuals and they risk their careers and reputations by reporting unacceptible matters - and UFOs are unacceptible!

    Dennis K. dropped out of the race today. It was never really in doubt; he was either ignored or ridiculed from the beginning.

    I hope Cleveland has the good sense to reelect him to Congress at least.
