What Bail Money?

This is quite possibly the best news story ever written, sure to put a smile on your face before the three-day weekend:

Former U.S. lawmaker and Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney and several other human rights activists remained in an Israeli prison Thursday after refusing to sign a deportation form that they claim is self-incriminating.

In a press release from the Green Party, McKinney said the form states that the Spirit of Humanity, a Greek-flagged relief boat carrying 21 activists, medical supplies, cement, olive trees and children’s toys en route to Gaza, was violating the Israeli blockade and trespassing the country’s territorial waters.

Best part is, nobody in Washington is going to want to deal with this on what is effectively a weekend afternoon — meaning good ol’ Cynthia might be spending the entire weekend in an Israeli jail.
