I should have such a mismatch

Jeff Jarvis embeds a YouTube appearance by Elizabeth Kucinich, spouse of Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, and describes her as "[Kucinich's] magnificently mismatched wife."

Um, what?

Is there some compelling reason why in 2005 Kucinich, then 58, should not have married Elizabeth Harper, then about 27? I mean, yeah, I'm sure I'd creep out women in their twenties were I to express any interest, but far be it from me to snicker at May-December romances. And Jarvis is younger than I am, fercryingoutloud. Scratch a Web 2.0 pioneer, find an old fogy at heart.

The way Jarvis wrote it, it implies that Elizabeth is mismatched with herself, not her husband. But it's not like he has much experience with writing.

Besides, have you seen a picture of JJ? He is an old fogey.

I figure that Mrs. Kucinich is enamored by recycled, hard left love.

"Oh, Dennis, you animal! Biodegrade me again!"
