Good News, Bad News

First the bad news. Cynthia McKinney is my congresscritter. That means I have to put up with two years of having the most annoying member of the House of Representatives in my district. Jihad Cindy is even more annoying than Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee.

Now the good news. I will have a wealth of material for the next two years. Supposedly she's learned her lesson about shooting off her big fat mouth but I'll bet she hasn't.

Tha Atlanta Urinal and Constipation which excoriated her two years ago and was instrumental in her losing the Dimocrat pirmary is now positively gushing over her.

Cynthia McKinney won back her congressional seat in Georgia's 4th District this year by doing what she didn't do when she lost it two years ago: avoiding intemperate rhetoric and focusing on local concerns.

Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Give her time. I bet two weeks after she's sworn in (if not sooner) she'll be in full moonbat mode.

"It's a new day, y'all," McKinney shouted to supporters on election night.

Yep! Welcome back to Loony Land. A land where all whites are racists and all Jews are bad.

But as she prepares to return to Congress next week, there are indications that things won't be so new and different for one of Congress' most outspoken critics of the Bush administration and most passionate defenders of the poor and minority rights.

See what I mean about gushing. "defenders of the poor" Actually she is for policies that keep the poor on the public teat. Majette was every bit as liberal as Cindy but at least she wasn't a loudmouth and an embarrassment.

Remember this?

"We now know that there were enough warnings prior to Sept. 11 that we didn't even have to experience Sept. 11 at all," McKinney said on Pacifica Radio, sparking a national uproar and drawing criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike.

Think she's changed?

"People can't help thinking about me when they hear about Richard Clarke," McKinney told From the Wilderness, an Internet publisher, in April, referring to the former White House intelligence officer who publicly confirmed pre-9/11 intelligence lapses and described a rush to war by the administration.

Is that the same Richard Clarke who has changed his story multiple times?

Yet, while McKinney talked about 9/11 at out-of-state appearances this year, she kept her election campaign focused on landfills near DeKalb neighborhoods and congestion on local roads.

Did you know that there is a road in her district called Cynthia McKinney Parkway?

Denise Majette, who defeated McKinney in 2002, ran for the U.S. Senate seat Zell Miller vacated rather than re-election to the House.

Majette said that God told her to run. God must have a real good sense of humor since Majette got clobbered and we got stuck with Cindy for two more years.

"The people of DeKalb and that district will be No. 1 for her, I believe, but she will always be Cynthia," Brooks said. "She will be there to speak to the issues of the poor and the downtrodden. And she'll be challenging Congress and the administration."

In other words she will shoot off her big fat mouth and be the loose cannon she has always been.

"There'll be no difference," her father, former state Rep. Billy McKinney, said flatly.

Billy (who once pulled a knife on another representative on the Georgia House floor) trained her well. This is the man who said the night before she lost the primary in 2002 that it was the Jews, J-E-W-S, who were behind her loss. Like father, like daughter.

"While she was out of office, she spoke all over the country and all over Europe," he said. "She was in great demand. That's because she spoke truth to power. . . . The 4th District put her back in office for that same reason."

Just like Michael Moore. If there was a gathering of people who hated America, Jihad Cindy was there. I'm hoping the 4th District put her back in office because they thought she had changed her ways, but, then, the 4th District is a majority black district and she was the most prominant black running. And just to set the story straight, it wasn't crossover Republicans in Dunwoody responsible for her loss in 2002. It was middle class blacks in the 4th District who threw her out.

"Losing a primary after a decade of service typically means the end of a career," said Thomas Mann of the Brookings Institution in Washington.

If God hadn't told Majette to run for the Senate it probably would have meant the end of Cindy's career. Now you know why I'm an atheist. A compassionate God would not have done sumpin' like that. That's just mean.

And those who do make a comeback typically run at the urging of their party's leaders, something that didn't happen in McKinney's case.

They are tired of her bullshit too. Her loud mouth is gonna cost them votes in the future.

"She's one of the lone voices who offers an opposing view on many questions," said William Boone, a political science professor at Clark Atlanta University.

McKinney's critics, he said, "all think that she's some person who's so far out there and doesn't have a firm grasp of reality. That's totally wrong,"

I would disagree with that.

The article goes on with more bullshit. It's hard to believe that this is the same newspaper that savaged her two years ago, but then, this is the Atlanta Urinal and Constipation.

I like that Mr. Boone thinks being the serial contrarian is a virtue of some sort.

An incapability to think logically, hatred of Jews, support of terrorists (McKinney is an unwavering supporter of the PLO), and belief that America is the root of worldly wrongs might appear to an academic or Leftist (redundant?) as refreshing, bold, "speaking truth to power", and all that, but to everyone else it appears to be two inches shy of the asylum and entreaties extensive time on the couch.

Lest we not forget... Here are some interesting things about dear Cynthia that I published in my book, Americans Behaving Badly, after the September 11th attacks:

Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga)

Mayor Guiliani rejected Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talalsaid's $10 million contribution for implying the cause of the September 11th attacks were a result of the United States’ policy in the Middle East.
Enter the honorable congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. In the spirit of Jesse Jackson, she quickly implemented a plan to get her mitts on the rejected money. What to do, what to do. YES! I’ll write the Prince a self-serving letter of apology! The rambling three page letter reads in part:

Dear Prince Alwaleed bin Talal:
I would like to take just a moment to thank you for your recent demonstration of empathy with those suffering from the devastating and heinous September 11 attacks on the United States Pentagon and the World Trade Center. I would especially like to thank you for your most generous offer of $10 million to assist those Americans in need as a result of those attacks.
I was disappointed that Mayor Giuliani chose to decline your generous offer and instead criticize you for your observations of events in the Middle East.
Although your offer was not accepted by Mayor Giuliani, I would like to ask you to consider assisting Americans who are in dire need right now. I believe we can guide your generosity to help improve the state of Black America and build better lives.

Cynthia McKinney


More Cynthia McKinney

Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.), certainly no stranger to controversy, suggested that president Bush had prior knowledge of the September 11th attacks, and allowed the hijackers to murder thousands of Americans so his administration could make money on the war against terrorism.
McKinney’s comments were made in an interview on KPFA, a public radio station in Berkeley, California. “We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11th. What did this administration know and when did it know it, about the events of September 11th? Who else knew, and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered? What do they have to hide?”
McKinney continues, “Persons close to this administration are poised to make huge profits off America’s new war. What is undeniable is that corporations close to the administration have directly benefited from the increased defense spending arising from the aftermath of September 11th.”

Even her democratic colleagues in the house are too embarrassed to make a comment on McKinney’s outrageous statements.

We had enough of her, when she was in Savannah Georgia, I am glad she is out of our district.

I am so sick of liberals suggesting the administration had advance knowledge of 9/11. Even if it did, what would they have been able to do? Liberals bitch and moan when we scrutinize Muslims AFTER 9/11...can you imagine the stink the ACLU et all would have raised if pre-9/11 ninteen Arab Muslims were pulled off seperate flights and a mass terror plot was suggested? They would have hit the roof. You cant have it both ways.

Al C. - You are right on that one. Usually when I write sumpin' about Cynthia, I bring up your point that even if we did know, thanks to clueless Minetta, we couldn't have prevented it because we would be racial profiling and discriminating against males of Middle Eastern origin.

Thanks for adding this since I neglected to.

Jake - I left out the part in the article that when she was in the Georgia House in 1991, she railed against the 1991 Iraq war causing her colleagues to walk out of the chamber in protest. She also ignored the rule about women wearing dresses and skirts by wearing pants. Rules don't apply to her and her father. Four years ago, they were campaigning on election day inside the polling area which is against the law.

That wasn't God whispering in Majette's ear. It was the Devil.
