McKinney runs for Green party nomination
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, December 11, 2007

If the upcoming elections get too heavy, there's always a little comic relief available in our third parties:
Cynthia McKinney is seeking the nomination of the Green Party, which gained fame when Ralph Nader ran as its candidate for president in 2000. Kevin Barrett, a former University of Wisconsin-Madison lecturer who taught that the U.S. government was behind the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, attended her news conference along with about 50 others.

Supporters held signs that said "9/11 Truth Now" and "Impeach."

McKinney accused President Bush of ignoring warnings of the Sept. 11 attacks because friends in the defense industry would profit from a war. She has hosted numerous panels on Sept. 11 conspiracy theories, which Barrett champions.

"I asked a very innocent question," McKinney said Tuesday. "I asked what did the administration know and when did it know it about the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. And I was excoriated."
Being a 9/11 truther is "green", right?

What I really want to know is will she appoint a Secretary of Hip Hop if she's elected?

And can you imagine what she might have said on a questionnaire 15 years ago?

Oh. Great. Gods.

Much as I enjoy a good buffoon as much as the next guy (Sharpton simply made 2004!), there is a real sense that the insertion of such halfwit gasbags into the presidential race accomplishes little save cheapening the office. Now, one might defensibly say that such clowns perform a vital public service by keeping the public aware of the inherent absurdity of government, lest we forget that the ultimate power is (thank the gods!) ours. And it can even more defensibly be said that even a deranged muttonhead like McKinney has the right to have a go at it, and we’d not want to live in the sort of society where they are barred simply for being bizarre.

But still, I can’t help but feel that just a dash more dignity should inhere in the contest for the office at the apex of state and government in this Nation. I suppose this is merely an aesthetic reaction, but the mere sight of that woman fills me with an overwhelming urge to make up a "Not In My Name" shirt with her face on it...just in case.

I propose a trade.

We send Cynthia McKinney and Dennis Kucinich to Pakistan for three Taliban and an Islamic nutjob to be named later.

Anyone got a better deal? Because that would be a great trade.

Hey James, man sucks what happened to you in Xmen 3 eh?

But Kevin Barret? This guy is crazy. He’s made numerous death threats to reporters and 9/11 debunkers.

This could make a great joke though. A 9/11 conspiracy theorist, an anti-semite, and a delusional schizophrenic walk into a bar. The bar tender says, "Can I get you a drink mister?".

Maybe this will tip Florida into the "R" column again. I mean, Cynthia McKinney, the name recognition alone must be worth a dozen protest votes.

Maybe she’ll have her dad campaign for her in the Jewish wards of Wisconsin.
