Up, up, and away

You simply, positively, never in this world could make this stuff up.

From the same article on Fox News -- all of it in one article. First, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)on the President's judgment:
"I seriously believe we have to start asking questions about his mental health," Kucinich said in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer. "There's something wrong. He does not seem to understand his words have real impact."

Shirley Maclaine's book, on Rep. Kucinich's visit to her home in the 1980s:
"He saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent and observing him," MacLaine wrote. It hovered for about 10 minutes or so and sped away with a speed he couldn't comprehend. He felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind."
Kucinich defending himself during the debate in Philadelphia:
... saying many Americans have shared his experience.

"You have to keep in mind that more — 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.

Debate moderator Tim Russert then cited a poll saying that 14 percent of Americans claim to have seen a UFO, to which Kucinich asked: "What as that percentage?"

"Fourteen," Russert answered.

"Thank you," Kucinich responded with satisfaction.

President Bush's approval rating stood at 35 percent in the most recent FOX News-Opinion Dynamics poll ...
SUMMARY: Dennis Kucinich flunks math but thinks George W. Bush has a screw loose. Meanwhile his friends say that Kucinich received telepathic directions from a flying saucer during the Reagan administration. And Kucinich wants to be our president.

What's seriously wrong with this picture? Is it that anyone takes him seriously at all?

* And this is supposed to give credibility to his case? Fifty percent of living Democratic ex-presidents have seen UFOs?
