Cynthia Mckinney, an Embarrassment for Democrats

The Weekly Standard has a piece out on Cynthia Mckinney, a Democratic representative from Georgia who won back her congressional seat after losing it in 2002. Normal people consider her a complete nutjob that spouts off bizarre conspiracy theories about the Bush administration. And a responsible political party would consider her a complete embarrassment and distance themselves from her. Unfortunately, my former party has gone in the other direction and now openly embraces her whacked out theories. She's the Black female equivalent of Michael Moore. See if any of this sounds familiar:

"We know there were numerous warnings of the events to come on September 11," McKinney said that day. "What did this administration know and when did it know it, about the events of September 11? Who else knew, and why did they not warn the innocent people of New York who were needlessly murdered? What do they have to hide?" McKinney thought she knew the answer. "What is undeniable," she explained, "is that corporations close to the administration have directly benefited from the increased defense spending arising from the aftermath of September 11th."

These remarks were the cause of her losing her seat in 2002, back when the wounds of 9/11 were still fresh and before my former party lost its collective mind. Now the idea that Bush somehow orchestrated 9/11 is the considered opinion of a huge portion of the Democratic party.

A few weeks after the conference, Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, which glibly hints at possible government foreknowledge of the terrorist attacks, was screened for the Senate Democratic caucus at the Uptown Theater in Washington. The film received a standing ovation.

This is one of many reasons I want little to do with today's Democratic party.
