WASHINGTON (BHN) - Healthy eating advocate Rep. Dennis Kucinich (Retard-Ohio) is calling for the creation of a new federal department to presumably promote the consumption of peas.
The diminutive congressman has a long history of introducing bizarre leftist initiatives, thought to be the result of being repeatedly kicked in the head as a child by his aunt, a series of bad acid trips in the late 60s, and the stigma of being the only elected official in the United States under 4' tall.
"Yeah, Dennis is like a little retarded troll doll, only with way nicer hair," said House Speaker John Bohner. "We just ignore him."
UPDATE: We incorrectly identified Rep. Kucinich's proposed department as the "Department of Peas" - it would actually be the "Department of Peace." We apologize for this error.
