Rep. Cynthia McKinney "Racing" to be Our Dumbass!

In a story that just keeps getting better and better, Georgia Democrat Cynthia McKinney shows her "true colors" in an extraordinarily transparent attempt to get away with assaulting a white Capitol Hill police officer. She's not just "playing a race card" - it would seem that her entire hand is made up of them!

For those who somehow don't know, last Wednesday Congresswoman McKinney attempted to skirt a security checkpoint while entering a House Office Building - without her congressional identification pin and despite repeated calls from the policeman manning the post to stop. After the cop stopped her progress with a hand on her shoulder, McKinney lost her temper - then SLAPPED THE COP!

Since then, the Capitol Police Force have asked the Federal Government to issue an arrest warrant for assault - which is still pending at this time. McKinney, scrambling to counteract this looming threat to her political career, has decided to invoke her perceived God-given right as a black woman to play victim of a "racist white cop."

Her first public statement about the incident - before learning of the planned arrest warrant: "Earlier today I had an unfortunate confrontation with a Capitol Hill Police Officer....I was urgently trying to get to an important meeting on time to fulfill my obligations to my constituents. Unfortunately, the Police Officer did not recognize me as a Member of Congress and a confrontation ensued. I did not have on my Congressional pin but showed the Police Officer my Congressional ID. I know that Capitol Hill Police are securing our safety, that of thousands of others, and I appreciate the work that they do. I deeply regret that the incident occurred. I have demonstrated my support for them in the past and I continue to support them now."
ALMOST sounds like an apology - but not quite accepting responsibility for her actions. Reading this, you wouldn't think she had actually bitch-slapped a cop.
On the defensive - from her (civil rights) attorney James Myart on Thursday: “Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, like thousands of average Americans across this country, is, too, a victim of the excessive use of force by law enforcement officials because of how she looks and the color of her skin. Ms. McKinney is just a victim of being in Congress while black...Congresswoman McKinney will be exonerated.”
Does this remind anyone else of an impetuous young child, who smacked another child for no reason and is now desperately trying to shift blame to that child for something much worse? What, are we FIVE?!
In a statement posted to the internet (which she has retracted and/or denies), McKinney wrote: "Do I have to contact the police every time I change my hairstyle? How do we account for the fact that when I wore my braids every day for 11 years, I still faced this problem, primarily from certain white police officers"
Now, I ask you gentle readers -- compare the image in this article with that in the "Dumbass" graphic at the top. Seems to have changed her hair from Alfalfa to Buckwheat, her make-up from Oprah to Whoopi. Am I wrong? Would you have recognized this woman (out of 535 Capitol Hill politicians) blowing past YOUR checkpoint without her Congressional Pin?

She has cried out for assistance from the ACLU, Danny GLover, Harry Belefonte, and the entirety of the Georgia Black Whiners Society (or whoever they are) and others, because this incredible moron is just smart enough to realize one thing -- she could go to jail for smacking a cop. But the SILENCE IS DEAFENING from the forty-something other black members of Congress. NOT A SINGLE ONE has stepped up to help her out on this one!
Hey, you can't make this crap up any better than this - but it gets even better.
A local Atlanta news station found something else! "Channel 2 Action News has uncovered documents showing McKinney, D-Ga., spent about $1,000 of taxpayer's money to fly singer Isaac Hayes to Georgia to help dedicate a new office in Atlanta. The money came from a fund members of Congress are supposed to use for office supplies. (This is a) violation of strict congressional rules..."
Of course, McKinney's staff has immediately come forward to say that they will reimburse this fund for this "oversight."

In all of this, I have been very curious as to what exactly was this idiotic woman's almighty hurry on a Wednesday afternoon? What does she do, exactly, in order "to fulfill (her) obligations to (her) constituents?" Here are two examples of this Congresswoman's "important works:"

1) Chaired a Congressional hearing last year "on whether the Bush administration was involved in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001."

2) Introduced into the House of Representatives the Tupac Shakur Records Release Act of 2006 "for the purpose of fully informing the American people about the history surrounding the life and death of ("gangsta" rapper) Tupac Amaru Shakur."
Had enough? Many of the folks in the Fourth District of Georgia have too. According to one outraged constituent:

"She has long been known for things like advocating for disastrous Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe who ran white farmers off their land, turning the country from a breadbasket to a basket case; cozying up with and receiving campaign donations from all kinds of terrorist sympathizers; indulging in the anti-Jewish hatefest at an infamous conference in Durban, South Africa in 2001 even after the U.S. withdrew most of its participation; and for having a blatantly anti-Semitic father in the Georgia State Legislature whose prejudices just may have rubbed off on her."
Hmmm - all this kinda' makes you wonder. Going back to the incident on Wednesday, who exactly is the racist? A diligent Capitol Hill Policeman - who happens to be white? Or a joke of a congresswoman who considers herself above the commoners - who happens to be black?

Only in politically-correct America, could an instance of being touched on the shoulder, be called "inappropriate".

By God, think I'll try sluggin' a cop, see if I get out of tro - wait, I'm a white guy. I'd just go to jail.

We have 50 Senators and over 400 Reps. How in the hell is a security guard supposed to know and recognize every single one of them every day, especially if their not wearing their ID tags?

Try 100 Senators and 435 Congress-plus their staffs!

If I had smacked this cop, the truncheons would have been raining down on my head before you can say "Racial Profiling." But now this race-baiting bitch can (if she gets her head out of her ass) simply apologize and say she over-reacted - and all will be well. Kinda bullshit, you ask me.

I don't care what color she is or who she is, she smacked a law enforcement officer and needs to fess up and take her punishment...period. Part of what's wrong with the world we live in is that no one wants to take responsibility for their actions.

What a moron this lady is. It is pathetic enough that she is an elected representative of this Nation, I only hope that she is never reelected.

McKinney 'apologized' today. But exactly who did she apologize to?

A true and wise leader, when asked by an officer to stop, would turn around, comply with instruction, properly introduce themselves and THANK the officer for doing his job.

Better to make a friend, than an issue.

I had a buddy do a very similar thing to a cop! Know what happened to him? In a blink of an eye 5 cops were hitting him with their night sticks. THey then threw him in jail, with a concusion. He has been in and out of court over it for years. Too bad the same didnt happen to her! My question is why is the warrent taking so long? If it was anyone else they would already be in jail.
