Kucinich on Daily Show

The vegan Congressmen sits down with The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to talk about his “improbable success.”

Earlier this week, viewers of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart witnessed a comedic look into the success of Representative Dennis Kucinich, a vegan, liberal politician who has been elected seven times to a blue-collar district of Ohio. Daily Show reporter John Oliver sat down with the congressman himself to discuss his “improbable success,” his desire to establish the Department of Peace, and even got to see a bit of Kucinich’s ventriloquist act. While an imminent restructuring of the Ohio congressional districts might rid Kucinich of his longtime seat in the House of Representatives, the “unstoppable,” “super-human” politician (as Oliver described) will continue to run for political office.
