The (Not So) Lonely Life of the Second-Tier Candidate

posted by on June 4 at 14:55 PM

Last night I posted some photos I took in the spin room after the Democratic debate in New Hampshire. I thought my shot of the nearly-empty and completely ignored Kucinich “spin stand” said something about the loneliness of the second-tier candidate.

But I should also show you what happened next. It may make you feel a little less sorry for Kucinich.

About ten minutes later, the Congressman walked in with his bombshell 29-year-old wife, Elizabeth. (It’s been reported, with some glee, that Elizabeth has a tongue piercing and a familiarity with the kama sutra.) Suddenly, the Kucinich stand wasn’t so lonely anymore…



A crush of media surrounded the couple, and pushed little old me to the outer edge of their scrum. This morning, a sharp-eyed friend spotted photographic evidence, via the AP, of my lack of sharp enough elbows. I’m not saying which one is me, but suffice to say I’m not in the inner circle.

Mr. Kucinich has a 10" (real inches, not online inches) dick and really knows how to use it.

Fixed your post, monkey:

Mr. Kucinich has a lot of money and is willing to spend it on women.

But I thought younger third wives was a Red Bushie kind of thing?

"But I thought younger third wives was a Red Bushie kind of thing?"

How do you figure? You think the "opposing" party is pure as the driven snow?

And, for the record, don't care what state you're in. She's pretty hot.

She's also English, which is bizarre considering she's so tall. And also, very, very "new-agey" which I guess is to be expected from the Congressman who proposed creation of a Dept. of Peace:

Wow, eww. I can't imagine the two of them kama sutra-ing. Maybe he just watches.

On her MySpace she quotes Stairway to Heaven. In it's entirety. With the word "fade" at the end.

mrs. max solomon is 100% british-heritage & 5'-11". so british does not disqualify one from being tall.

she's smoking for a politicians' wife. she must be crazy. i'd do her even if he watched.

She looks like a drag queen.

In fact, She's a dead ringer for Glamazonia (sp?)...

Except for the muscle-tone and the cake make up and everything else, sure.

I think she's stunning. You go, girl!

That woman is not in her 20s.

When I see them together, why do I think of the line from Annie Hall that Woody says about Wallace Shawn "and then, this little homunculus.."

Dan Savage, indiscreet youth videos and all, will get elected president before a little guy with an amazon wife who's a head taller. We are an advance people but... come on.
