Today the Democrats launched their mission to revamp their image on security and national defense. They have long complained about a national perception of their party as wimpish, but Cynthia McKinney decided to set the record straight — by slugging a cop:
According to two sources on Capitol Hill, who spoke on condition of anonymity, Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., walked through a metal detector in a House of Representatives office building. When an officer asked her to stop, McKinney kept walking. The officer followed her and tapped her on the shoulder.
McKinney then allegedly turned around and hit the officer in his chest with her cell phone..
Members of Congress are not required to stop for the metal detectors, but that policy should change soon. Obviously, some members have less emotional stability than others. Cynthia McKinney probably has less than anyone.
Indeed. On the other hand, Cynthia got there first and established her territory early by declaring–way back in 2002, when there was an otherwise brief moratorium on moonbatry, that 9/11 was an inside conspiracy. Her theory has since been endorsed by leading Hollywood intellectuals!
