"You are a Georigan, can't you do something about this woman? She is a complete embarrassment to Democrats everywhere!"He's talking about Cynthia McKinney, of course. And after everything I've seen and read over the last few days, I must concur that she's a lunatic and a fool. Must we share a party with her?
If you haven't seen this video clip, you need to watch it IINS (immediately if not sooner). It's Soledad O'Brien interviewing McKinney, or at least trying to interview her. Oh, it's painful.
How did this woman get elected to Congress? And why is she incapable of saying, "I made a mistake, and I regret my behavior." The whole flap would have disappeared from the news in a day and a half, and instead, she's digging in her heels, denying any wrongdoing, and now she's going to be charged with criminal behavior. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face!
When asked about the incident, she launches into a diatribe about racial profiling and "improper touching." She yammers on about how the Capitol police should be trained to recognize all 535 members of Congress, even when they're not wearing the identification pins that they're supposed to wear. She throws around her "much ado about a hairdo" tagline that some lawyer dreamt up for her.
Does she have any idea how crazy she sounds?
She's also drawing attention away from what should be the real story du jour, the juicy Tom DeLay scoop.
Let's hope the rumors are true, and that Georgia State Senator Sam Zamarrippa runs for McKinney's seat. Because that lady is plum loco.
