A hastily planned activist event by grassroots Kucinich supporters at NBC Studios, set to protest the candidate’s sudden exclusion from the NBC’s Las Vegas debates, turned into celebration when the tables turned, today.
Kucinich has been locked out of previous debates by both AARP and ABC. But when NBC decided to follow suit, Uncle Sam finally put his foot down. In an unexpected, but stunning, display of American justice and democracy, a Las Vegas judge ruled that Kucinich must be allowed to participate in the Tuesday night presidential debate in Las Vegas.
Kucinich supporters turned in their debate protest signs for “Vote for Kucinich” signs and “Impeach” banners, and carried on, sharing the sidewalk with writers’ strikers, and eliciting shouts and honks of approval from passing cars. Several activists held Kucinich signs stating, “Give me your vote, and I’ll give you back your country.”
