Toward the end of the televised Democratic presidential candidates' debate on MSNBC Tuesday, Oct. 30, NBC's Tim Russert asked Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich about a recently published book (Shirley MacLaine's, “Sage-ing While Age-ing”) that he had once seen an unidentified flying object.
Kucinich was momentarily caught off guard but briefly stated that, yes, he did see something that was unidentified, was apparently flying and appeared to be an object.
Shirley MacLaine wrote about her old friend:
"He had a close sighting over my home in Graham , Washington , when I lived there. Dennis found his encounter extremely moving. The smell of roses drew him out to my balcony where, when he looked up, he saw a gigantic triangular craft, silent, and observing him.
It hovered, soundless, for ten minutes or so, and sped away with a speed he couldn't comprehend. He said he felt a connection in his heart and heard directions in his mind.”
I've held off posting anything about this particular incident, but since Kucinich has offered some sort of retort coupled with the fact that Shirley MacLaine is all over the place peddling her latest book (where Kucinich's UFO sighting is mentioned) I thought I'd better make a, “Token” post. On TV programme, "Today" Shirley MacLaine told Matt Lauer that she thinks it is "terrific" that Dennis Kucinich admitted at the last Democratic debate that he believes UFOs exist. "I think that is terrific that a presidential candidate admitted it," she said. "If they asked Gov. Bill Richardson, he would say it too, because he's the governor of UFOs. New Mexico ."
At the debate, Kucinich confirmed what MacLaine wrote in her new book, "Sage-ing while Age-ing," that he saw a UFO on a visit to her home. The entire exchange has led to a sidelight in the presidential race, pitting UFO believers against UFO deniers. MacLaine said that she became fascinated with UFOs when she was 18 and spotted the objects above the White House and the Capitol.
"It had a tremendous effect on me……….I have talked to a lot of astronauts and a lot of presidents, and these people are saying they are real."
And as promised, here's Kucinich's retort (after three days of kicking himself?)
And finally, over to Shirley and an interview about, yep you've guessed it, her new book!!
