Hackett heads north

Paul Hackett, erstwhile 2nd District congressional candidate and Iraq veteran, isn't running for anything, but he's not exactly through with politics.

Today, he's up in Cleveland, stumping for Rosemary Palmer, a former reporter whose Marine son was killed in Iraq. Palmer, an anti-war activist, is one of several Democrats taking on Rep. Dennis Kucinich in the March primary. Palmer has been all over Kucinich for spending all of his time on a hopeless run for the Democratic presidential nomination instead of representing his district - and the anti-war movement - in Washington.

Hackett agrees; and decided last year to lend his Marine Corps background and anti-war Democrat credentials to Palmer's campaign.

Here's a video Hackett did for Palmer:

Did Paul pack his AK-47 for the trip? Watch out Kucinich, Paul is hunting elves...

"Pie Head" Hackett heads North to support Rosemary in her run against "Goof Ball" Kucinich.

Stay up in Cleveland, Hackett, and don't come back! Your politics might actually be welcomed up there. Cleveland's loss would be our gain.
