Willie Nelson endorses Kucinich
One of the most beloved figures in popular music and culture has endorsed the populist presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich.

Statement from Willie Nelson: "I am endorsing Dennis Kucinich for President because he stands up for heartland Americans who are too often overlooked and unheard. He has done that his whole political career. Big corporations are well-represented in Washington, but Dennis Kucinich is a rare Congressman of conscience and bravery who fights for the unrepresented, much like the late Senator Paul Wellstone. Dennis champions individual privacy, safe food laws and family farmers. A Kucinich Administration will put the interests of America's family farmers, consumers and environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness.

I normally do not get too heavily involved in politics, but this is more about getting involved with America than with politics. I encourage people to learn more about Dennis Kucinich at his website and I will be doing all I can to raise his profile with voters. I plan to do concerts to benefit the campaign."

(This is an individual endorsement and does not reflect the views of any organization.) /

3. by the way...
did anyone see the recent (within the past week and well after Willie had announced his endorsement of Kucinich) LA times feature on Willie Nelson? Not once did it mention the endorsement, which is really disappointing. Instead it talked about how cool he is and how old his guitar is...

But, still it was encouraging to see that even media whores respect Willie Nelson (pander actually, and asked no interesting questions in the interview..).
