News shocker! Aliens seek to communicate with Kucinich

According to an alleged British celebrity website, "veteran actress Shirley MacLaine has called on the U.S. government to make its files on Unidentified Flying Objects (U.F.O.s) public."

According to the report today, MacLaine was delighted when "her close friend" Dennis Kucinich "revealed he believes in alien spacecraft in a recent interview. And the 73-year-old hopes his confession will prompt lawmakers to follow the lead of other countries by opening their U.F.O. files."

"I thought that was terrific," the site quotes the actress as saying, "that a presidential candidate admitted it. It's time. Many countries have released their files -- Argentina has, Brazil, France. Let's do it."

Actually, Kucinich was asked about his alleged UFO sighting during last week's Democratic debate in Philadelphia. And he didn't say he believed in creatures from another world.

According to the transcript, moderator Tim Russert asked: "Congressman Kucinich, I want to move to a different area, because this is a serious question. The godmother of your daughter, Shirley MacLaine, writes in her new book that you sighted a UFO over her home in Washington state ... [laughter] ... that you found the encounter extremely moving, that it was a 'triangular craft, silent and hovering,' that you 'felt a connection to your heart and heard directions in your mind.'

Now, did you see a UFO?"

The Cleveland congressman took a deep breath and replied: "I did. And the rest of the account -- I didn't -- it was an unidentified flying object, OK? It's, like, it's unidentified. I saw something. Now, to answer your question, I'm moving my -- it's -- and I'm also going to move my campaign office to Roswell, New Mexico, and other one in Exeter, New Hampshire, OK? And also, you have to keep in mind that more -- that Jimmy Carter saw a UFO and also that more people in this country have seen UFOs than I think approve of George Bush's presidency."

It can be revealed here exclusively now that that Web account was, in fact, not written by Britons but by space aliens who have taken over that website and seek to spread belief in outer space creatures among earthlings. The way you can tell is that their story identifies Kucinich as a "Republican presidential candidate."

The Smear is in on Kucinich to detract from his motion ot Impeach Cheney. This article is a prefect example of an attempt to belittle Kucinich.

The American people support Impeachment of first Cheney, then Bush.

The corporate press cannot stop the people their control is not that great yet.

I cannot believe that a serious newspaper would actually print this. Why not write about the real story the motion to impeach VP Cheney. In the not so distant past the media was all too glad to print stories about a president who lied about an extra marital affair, I guess a vice president who lies about WMD and allows innocent people to be killed just isn't newsworthy. Dennis Kucinich is a man of true courage...finally a politician who talks the talk and walks the walk!

I love it when the corporate media exposes itself like this. The very little credibility they have left is just about gone.

I would also like to remind the la times that Reagan admitted to at least two UFO sightings, Carter admitted to seeing a UFO and even Russert admitted in the debate that 14% have seen a UFO. I wonder what percent believe in the possibility but have not seen one themselves? You are making yourselves look foolish , not Kucinich.

I agree with the poster that stated this attack was due to Kucinich calling for Impeachment. This question came up at the debate because they were trying to 'get him' after his announcement to pursue impeachment. Unfortunately for the LA times and other 'news' sources, the American people are a lot smarter than they think.
