In which we take a look back at the departing federal lawmakers we'll miss most in 2013.
Name: Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH)
Leaving Congress Because: Defeated, but also retiring. More likely, his calling is on another planet:
Best Known For: Calling for a Department of Peace, which makes him a crazy person on this planet.
Memorable Quote: "Will you marry me?" — to a woman who was entirely out of his league, and everybody said, "huh?!" and then, incredibly, she said yes, and everybody said, "huh."
Greatest Accomplishment: Tried to impeach Bush/Cheney. Neither of whom is office anymore, ergo, victory Kucinich.
Why We'll Miss Him: Why do you miss oxygen when you're underwater?
What the Future Holds for Him: Wins election to rule the galaxy in 3412 as Kucinich the Grey, earning him the nickname Boy Mayor of The Milky Way and Various Celestial Objects.
