    I mean, seriously?

    I'm a conservative and I know next to nothing about this guy.

    No one named Thaddeus has had a shot at the White House since the 19th century.

    He'll get less than one percent of the vote in Iowa and New Hampshire, but everybody will know who he is.

    I had never heard of him either. I'll bet people said the same thing about Dennis Kucinich awhile back.

    And Kucinich is still irrelevant.

    Actually, Kucinich was well known as the mayor who almost bankrupted Cleveland. There with Jane Byrne, Abe Beame and Jerry Springer in the Oddball Rust Belt Mayors Hall of Fame

    I've heard of him, but then I'm from the same state as him.

    Was she his prize for nearly bankrupting Cleveland?

    I've never heard of New York City, where Abe Beam was mayor from 1974-77, being considered part of the Rust Belt.

    I went to school in his district and I can guarantee most of Westland and Livonia couldn't pick him out of a lineup. I don't know who convinced him it was a good idea to run for president but they must have been very persuasive.

    Lots of personal publicity for scant effort.
