Democrat Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the eight-term congressman from Ohio and two-time presidential candidate, suffered a humiliating defeat in his primary race tonight. Super Tuesday was super-sad for progressives, who took to Twitter to redistribute the grief — while the rest of the Twitterverse chortled over the out-of-this-world pol’s loss and sore loser-dom:
A US Congress without Dennis Kucinich is a Congress without hope. There goes my voice. FUCK THIS!

Goodbye Denis Kucinich, your presence will be missed. You can finally return to Valinor.

I though Kucinich was going to move to Wash State and run there? Over under on the Dennis & Grayson Show on MSNBC?

Kucinich concedes to Marcy Kaptur, but sounding very bitter, saying her campaign lacked "integrity."

Kucinich was the left's Ron Paul, but without the sense of humor.
