Meghan McCain Promotes Dennis Kucinich

Though the one-time “boy mayor” failed to reconnect with voters during his spring Ohio primary, Democratic Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s days on Capitol Hill might not be numbered.

In fact, author-cum-armchair pundit Meghan McCain sees him moving on up.

While preparing to interview the daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) about her latest book (written with comedian Michael Ian Black), “America, You Sexy Bitch,” HOH noticed what we assumed would be a temporary flub. In the advance copy of the road-trip-centric tome, Meghan McCain offhandedly refers to the 10-term Ohio Democrat as “Senator Kucinich.”

When the final, hardcover version of the book crossed our desk, we immediately flipped through to see if the Da Capo Press fact checkers had earned their pay.

A Da Capo aide assured HOH the “error was unintentional” and promised to correct the titular stumble in future printings.

No word on whether Kucinich would rather take Meghan McCain’s word as gospel and simply join her dad in the other chamber.
