I know there are more significant things going on in the world right now, but I just couldn’t help reporting on this debate. Cell-phone slugger Cynthia McKinney on Monday was before the Atlanta Press Club debating her Democratic opponent, Hank Johnson, just prior to the upcoming elections here in Georgia. Remember, Cynthia was a “no show” at two other previous debates, of which she was to be part, so I was kind of shocked that she showed up this time. I guess she’d run out of excuses, so I settled in and prepared to be entertained.
And I wasn’t disappointed.
Johnson was a complete robot – he never looked away from the questioning panel that I could see. However, McKinney looked several times like she wanted to smack Johnson (well, isn’t that her forte’?).
As animated as she was, she was the only entertainment here, and here are just a few of her most shining moments (satirical captions compliments of your humble blogger):
You got money from Republicans!
You accused me of what???
Well let me tell YOU something!
Oh, crap… I forgot the cameras were rolling!
She also did the typical non-answer of a key question – that question was whether or not she thought her encounter with the Capitol Hill police officer hurt her campaign, to which she responded “well, as a matter of fact, I was never charged with anything.” Yeah, right. And you wonder why the National Fraternal Order of Police, the State of Georgia FOP, local FOPs, and the Georgia Sheriff’s Association financially backed Johnson?
You can’t even tell the truth, Cynthia, yet all you do is speak about “truth to power.” What the hell does that mean? I’m STILL trying to get someone to tell me what that means!?!? It’s a mantra that’s thrown around on the left, and it makes no sense to me. I believe in “power to TRUTH,” if you want to know my take on it.
Oh, and one of Johnson’s seemingly most egregious points of fact to McKinney was that Johnson has received campaign donations from Republicans! OH, THE HORROR! Yes, she even tells Hank that if he’s getting votes from Republicans, he might as well be a Republican. Whaaa??? Hank should have, if he’d have had the gonads, reminded Cynthia and the viewing audience that almost all of her campaign donations came from Muslims – and many of them on 9/11/01! And yes, in the end, she didn’t disappoint, as she gave us one of her most famous, idiotic, signature moral superiority arguments:
“Eisenhower reminds us that every dollar spent on war is a theft from the people, and Iâ€™ve brought more than $350M. Send me back to Washington so I can speak â€œtruth to power’.”
Never mind the segue into this blather was very weak, and didn’t make sense. But this is Cynthia McKinney, after all. As Neal Boortz calls her, “the cutest little Jihadist in Congress.”
Oh, and by the way… I looked up her record on Congress.org, of which she so proudly boasts about her rating. And she has made some very powerful votes while in Congress. NOT! You want to know what her ranking is in the entire House? Try a whopping ranking of #408. The Congress.org site describes this ranking structure this way:
“Ranking in Chamber based on member’s 2005 Power Score. Formula based on position in Congress, actions taken to influence legislative agenda, and legislative successes.”
Remember, there are 435 members of the House, and Cynthia ranks #408. That’s #408 out of #435. What a RAVING success! She must have been bumped from #435 to #408 for that Tupac Amaru Shakur Open Records Act, HR4210. Yeah, right. By the way; the previous link to her Tupac action is courtesty of one of her biggest fanbase websites, ThugLifeArmy.
The last few minutes of the debate can sum up the whole thing. You can view that portion here.

Round #2 will be Saturday, August 5th at 12:30 p.m. I’ll be sure to have coverage of it here.
