Scuffle at the Capitol
Cynthia McKinney, who is a hideously ugly person in mind, spirit, and other ways has taken it upon herself to punch a Capitol police officer. Apparently, he shouted after her 3 times as he did not see her congressional pin (she wasn't wearing it) and when he touched her, whaPOW! Right in the kisser. While this whole situation is on camera, and could be alleviated by Congresswoman McKinney apologizing to the officer, we all know that this will not happen given already inflated egos in Congress. What I make up for in lack of surprise can be found in my unfathomable disappointment that McKinney has decided to play the race card. With an official Hollywood representative by her insane side, McKinney made the following statement:
Unfortunately, the Police Officer did not recognize me as a Member of Congress and a confrontation ensued.

Fortunately, Nancy Pelosi came to the rescue by assuring us the police officer that stopped McKinney in a misguided attempt to keep members of Congress secure was not at fault. What was the officer not at fault of, Nancy? He was definitely guilty of doing his job, so maybe you are granting him forgiveness for not immediately arresting McKinney as he should have on a charge of assault? I don't know, you crazy libs! You keep me on my toes! Pelosi also issued the following statement:
(it was) a mistake, an unfortunate lack of recognition of a member of Congress.

So I ask you America, has Congress morphed into an untouchable form of royalty, unseen in this country for 200+ years? Are we to assume if our filthy proletariat bodies come within a certain distance of a Congressperson we'll be forgiven and dismissed? Sad state of affairs here.

UPDATE 04/03/06:

McKinney has decided to take the "discredit the Capitol Police as ignorant racists" approch, as previously documented here. It shouldn't get her very far in the case, but check this quote:
Members of Congress are allowed to bypass the metal detectors and security checkpoint. They are supposed to wear a lapel pin that identifies them as lawmakers. McKinney acknowledges she wasn't wearing one when she was stopped, but concurred with Myart that police should know who she is.

"The pin is not the issue," the six-time congresswoman said. "The issue is face recognition."

This pretty much sums it up right here. That's right, Capitol Police be on notice, you are now to memorize the 535 faces of Congress, most of whom you see for about 5 seconds on a semi-daily basis (if that), among many other faces of staffers, lobbyists, and tourists. If they don't, Banana Man and Lethal Weapon will lay the smack down.

I think it is all summed up by your statement: "So I ask you America, has Congress morphed into an untouchable form of royalty, unseen in this country for 200+ years?

Sad Indeed

If the police are supposed to recognize all congress members, then why do they need the label pin at all? Along those lines, I think the airport security should recognize me as an outstanding American citizen and therefore I should be able to bypass security.

Today I heard Neal Boortz APOLOGIZE to Cynthia McKinney on the air today... Someone apparently put the smack down on Neal for calling her a getto slut. :) Now that I think about it, yeah, he probably should have thought harder before saying that one :) :) But Neal apologizing on the air shocked me a bit.

Yeah.. you know... even if McKinney is going to lower the dialogue, a nationally syndicated radio host had better watch what he says. :)
