I Don't Remember Electing Macy Gray to Congress?

I don't post nearly often enough... so when I decided to write today, this was the top story (as far as CNN was concerned): Congresswoman deflects questions on details of police scuffle. Yes, Representative Cynthia McKinney (D-Atlanta) didn't stop at an officer's request last week, and then turned around and hit him after he reached out and grabbed her. He was just doing his job... making sure that only authorized individuals who were supposed to be there, were allowed to enter. Of course, she pulled the racial-profiling card on why she believes he stopped a complete stranger (at least to him), who refused to acknowledge his presence, authority, or inquiry, from entering a government building. I'm sure Jesse Jackson's ears perked up when he heard the words "racial-profiling".. I'm sure that without a drop of a dime, he had already pondered his next move... A march on capital hill? Maybe a boycott of security guards? Or some other means of promoting himself through someone else's misguided cause. Either way, she was wrong and he was just doing his duty by protecting government officials like HER in the process. "Even the high and the haughty" should be able to stop and identify themselves as members of Congress if confronted at a security checkpoint, Capitol Police Chief Terrance Gainer said. "The response is not to hit a police officer." Or maybe it was her hairdo? She also believes that her change in hairstyle may have had something to do with why she was not recognized.
"Cynthia McKinney is a racist," DeLay told Fox News Channel, according to The Associated Press. "She has a long history of racism. Everything is racism with her. This is incredible arrogance that sometimes hits these members of Congress but especially Cynthia McKinney." Coming from a man who was quoted as saying "I am the federal government!", he sure does show moxie in calling other people arrogant! Either way, I never thought I'd agree with someone as disgraceful and evil as Tom DeLay, but he's right on this one. And not to judge her appearance, but if you were to place a shopping cart in front of her and roll her down Pennsylvania Avenue, she'd blend in nicely with the surrounding urban bums. Oh, and next time... try wearing your I.D.
