Cynthia McKinney "Badly Trailing" In Polls

This could be fun. Let the idiot serve for two years, let her bring further discredit upon the Democrats, boot her out, let her serve another two years, etc.

Being a Representative is only fun if you pretty much are guaranteed victory every year. No one wants to have to fight tooth and nail for a meager spot in the House every two years. That doesn't leave much time for important legislative work, like postulating insane 9/11 conspiracy theories, blaming the Jews (J-E-W-S), etc.

β€œThis is the fight of her career,” says William Boone, a political scientist at Clark Atlanta University.

The competition for police support stems from a March incident in which McKinney shoved a Capitol Hill officer. β€œI was never charged with anything, and so it's not an issue,” she says.

Even so, the scuffle underscored the main issue for many voters β€” McKinney herself. Johnson, a low-key defense attorney and former county commissioner, understands that as well as anyone. His slogan is β€œVote Hank, Replace Cynthia.”


Johnson, also 51, paints himself as reasonable and able to get along with people. β€œI'm going to be an effective legislator,” he says. β€œI'm not going to be a divisive one.”


McKinney's conduct sets a bad example and is an appropriate campaign issue, Johnson says. A β€œregular” person who shoved a cop, he says, would have been handcuffed, fingerprinted and booked.

Dude, even I need more racial pandering than that, and I'm white as Moby Dick's ass. Come on, get some fire in ya.

"Those People" are again making trouble for poor Cynthia:


McKinney's father Billy, then a state legislator, blamed the defeat on β€œJ-E-W-S” who helped Majette. When Majette ran for Senate in 2004, McKinney easily recaptured her old job.


The Jewish community has again whipped into action. Johnson received at least $23,000 from pro-Israel political action committees in just two days this week, campaign finance records show.

If anyone wants to toss this cat a few shekels, his website is here.

Rep. Cynthia McKinney

Speaking Crazy to Power. Speaking Crazy to Powerless. Just generally speaking Crazy. And you want that kind of consistency in a Congressman.

Update: As long as the media is noting that "pro-Israel" committees are donating to Johnson, they might also want to take a gander at Cynthia McKinney's donor lists.

Overheard at Ace of Spades HQ:

"Is Cynthia McKinney a Muslim?"

Ace: "No. She's just a big fan of their work."

Thanks to IreneFingIrene for the tip.
