Cynthia McKinney’s Last Stand

She’s completely lost it. Honestly, I don’t think she ever had it. Wow.

Rep. Cynthia McKinney is going off on a rampage of last-ditch, wacko efforts to bring down the entire Bush administration and send our country spiriling into a second civil war by year’s end.

In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney announced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.

The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment.

McKinney, a Democrat who drew national headlines in March when she struck a Capitol police officer, has long insisted that Bush was never legitimately elected. In introducing her legislation in the final hours of the current Congress, she said Bush had violated his oath of office to defend the Constitution and the nation’s laws.

McKinney has made no secret of her frustration with Democratic leaders since voters ousted her from office in the Democratic primary this summer. In a speech Monday at George Washington University, she accused party leaders of cowing to Republicans on the war in Iraq and on military mistreatment of prisoners.

What a waste of a speaker. Those poor students at GWU. I can’t believe that anyone besides Al Gore still thinks Bush was never legitimately elected. How many re-counts did we have? Nevermind.

McKinney, who has not discussed her future plans, has increasingly embraced her image as a controversial figure.

She has hosted numerous panels on Sept. 11 conspiracy theories and suggested that Bush had prior knowledge of the terrorist attacks but kept quiet about it to allow friends to profit from the aftermath. She introduced legislation to establish a permanent collection of rapper Tupac Shakur’s recordings at the National Archives and calling for a federal investigation into his killing.

But it was her scuffle with a Capitol police officer that drew the most attention. McKinney struck the officer when he tried to stop her from entering a congressional office building. The officer did not recognize McKinney, who was not wearing her member lapel pin.

A grand jury in Washington declined to indict McKinney over the clash, but she eventually apologized before the House.

“Embraced her image as a controversial figure.” That’s putting it far too lightly. More like the image of someone on the verge of a breakdown.

How about she commit herself to a psychiatric facility? Now there’s a good idea for her, since she doesn’t have any.

I have very little tolerance for elected officials who actually believe that President Bush knew about 9/11, allowed it to happen in order to profit from it. These are very sick people who need help. Meetings that Rep. McKinney held concerning such beliefs are a waste of tax-payer dollars. Serves her right to be ousted in the primaries. She is far out of touch with mainstream America and is no longer of any use in office (nor as an American).
