Dennis Kucinich, vegan ventriloquist, to appear at Truman Days

Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich will be one of the keynote speakers at Truman Days, the party that Democrats in Jackson County throw every spring. Kucinich will have the opportunity on Friday night to share stories about performing ventriloquism on The Daily Show and his fifth-place finish — eat it, Chris Dodd! — in the 2008 Democratic primary in New Hampshire.

Fringe members of Congress, it’s worth remembering, represent actual people. I know because the wee vegan, who once reported a UFO sighting to Shirley MacLaine, was at one time my representative.
