Via Instapundit and PJ Media comes news of what will surely be the greatest face-office this election season: Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.) is taking on the guy who vanquished her in 2006, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.). Here's clip of Johnson at this finest, when he was grilling Adm. Robert Willard about whether Guam might "capsize" if it grew too populated:
McKinney is no slouch in the holy-cow sweepstakes. She's arguably best known for striking a policeman in the Capitol building, although her 9/11 truther comments, call for investigation into the murder of Tupac Shakur, and support for Qaddafi's bracing form of direct autocracy, among other issues, are no small potatoes either.
In 2008, she ran as the Green Party presidential candidate, after attending a Ron Paul sponsored forum described thusly at Wikipedia:
On September 10, 2008, McKinney joined a press conference held by third-party and independent candidates, along with Ralph Nader, Chuck Baldwin, and initiator Ron Paul. The participants agreed on four basic principles:
- An early end to the Iraq war, and an end to threats of war against other countries including Iran and Russia.
- The safeguarding of privacy and civil liberties, including a call for the repeal of the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and FISA legislation
- No increase in the National Debt
- A "thorough investigation, evaluation and audit of the Federal Reserve System."
Hey, that doesn't all sound bad, does it?
