He may be little, but he's got the most guts of the bunch

I dunno.

I know that Dennis Kucinich drives many (OK, almost all) conservatives crazy for his near-complete pacifism, bleeding-heart views, and naivete about the real world. And, to a great extent, I agree.

But, he was my councilman and mayor for a time. I got to know him on a personal level, and, I gotta say, I genuinely LIKE the guy. I have absolutely no doubt that everything he says is on the level, and straight from his fuzzy little heart. He is who he is, and that alone is refreshing in American politics.

Michelle Malkin has a post about him today. He's the sole Democrat who is, as she says, calling out the cowards who won't debate on Fox News. As usual, Dennis tells it without mincing words:
“If you want to be the President of the United States, you can’t be afraid to deal with people with whom you disagree politically,” Kucinich said. “No one is further removed from Fox’s political philosophy than I am, but fear should not dictate decisions that affect hundreds of millions of Americans and billions of others around the world who are starving for real leadership.”
You go, boy!

During the 2004 election, Andrew Sullivan (no less) described Kucinich as having the only honest position on Iraq. He was totally against it while everybody else was trying to split the difference so they wouldn't look weak on national defense.

You have to grudgingly admire that.
