Them darn tea partiers are at it again?

I bet Sarah Palin snuck in and did this herself.

rom USA Today:

Rep. Dennis Kucinich has filed a lawsuit over a sandwich he bought at a congressional cafeteria.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, has filed a lawsuit over an olive pit contained in a sandwich. Kucinich, D-Ohio, bit into an olive pit in a sandwich wrap in April 2008, which he said led to “serious and permanent dental and oral injuries,” according to documents filed with the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

He’s seeking $150,000 in damages, the court filing says.

In the lawsuit, Kucinich alleges that the defendants served him food “that was unwholesome and unfit for human consumption” because it “contained dangerous substances” — an olive pit.

  • It's no more ridiculous than people suing because of their coffee being hot, or fast food over-consumption leading to obesity IMO. People will sue for anything and everything if they can.

  • You KNOW Sarah Palin did it, and then used mind control to force him to file this frivolous, over the top lawsuit to teach her a lesson.

  • OMG! Sarah Palin is at it again! Why doesn't she just stay home in Wassilla, lol I swear everyone sues! Remember the story a few months ago about a McDonalds employee suing McDonalds for gaining weight while on the job!

  • So stupid. And even if he was going to try to get workers comp or something to pay for his dental work (which I don't think would work anyway), how much could the dental work have possibly cost? Not $150,000. Ridiculous.

  • He should be ashamed of himself. I guess we know one person not in favor of ending frivolous medical lawsuits. He might need to sue his Dr next for something equally ridiculous.
