I haven't laughed this hard all week. In fact, I'm still laughing. And I will continue doing so because I'm going to keep playing this clip over and over again. What's so funny? Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) appeared in a Daily Show interview last night. And while not much from the Daily show surprises me anymore, this did: Kucinich performed his secret talent -- ventriloquism.
The interview -- done in the irreverent Daily Show format -- has several "bonus" features. Not only do you get to see Kucinich play with a puppet, but you also get to see interviewer John Oliver confront the Rep. on why his wife is so much more attractive, as well as ask the local GOP chairman how the heck Kucinich keeps getting elected. You also learn Kucinish is still trying to get his "Department of Peace" approved. Oh, and there's an accusation of Kucinich being a droid.
Politico chronicles just some of the weirdness:
Kucinich had his hand puppet sing "God Bless America," and the weirdness of it all prompted Oliver to ask, "How do you keep winning elections?"
"You're going to have to ask Dennis," said Kucinich, via his puppet.
