So, How Hot IS It?

It’s soooo hot, I’m sweatin’ like Cynthia McKinney in a runoff…

According to this Forbes article, US Rep McKinney faces a bigger fight:

McKinney once claimed the Bush administration had advance knowledge of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. She struck a Capitol Police officer in March when he tried to stop her from entering a House office building unrecognized. A grand jury in Washington declined to indict her in the incident, but she was forced to apologize in the full House.

“She’s been the candidate of polarization and divisiveness,” Johnson, who also is black, said in a debate with McKinney this week.

McKinney blames Republicans for her political woes. Whether the GOP is responsible is a matter of dispute, but there is no doubt that the Republicans have orchestrated a remarkable takeover in Georgia. […]

[T.M.], a 56-year-old Republican engineer, took a Democratic ballot in July to make a statement against McKinney, whom he called “a disgrace.”

“She doesn’t represent the district and her last little antic at the Capitol was something I don’t want representing me,” [M.] said. […]…

University of Georgia political science professor Charles Bullock said that if history is a guide, McKinney will lose as most incumbents forced into a runoff in Georgia do.

“There is blood in the water and the sharks are circling,” Bullock said.

While McKinney thinks she may be able to hang on to some voters with her tactic of “Look at him, he’s even worse than me”, it won’t fool the many who are sick and tired of her antics. During the second debate in a week, Hank Johnson hit the nail right on the head:

And for one of the first times publicly, Johnson took off the gloves. After McKinney accused him of being under the thumb of Republicans because of the money he has gotten from GOP-leaning donors, he struck back.

“I can accuse her of being under the control of terrorists, but I won’t” Johnson said, because of the money that her campaign has gotten from Muslim interests.

Conspiracy Cindy went on to say:

“The special interest for me is the people,” McKinney said. “In 2002 the Republicans had a scheme and that scheme was to take over Georgia. Mr. Johnson is part of that Republican scheme. He is taking money from Republicans. Taking votes from Republicans. He is asking Republicans to interfere in a Democratic primary.”

Now Cynthia, I have a question for YOU….if America is the land of the free and the home of the brave, one nation UNDER GOD (Thank You Very Much), why is it such a travesty for a voter to follow his heart and switch tickets? We ALL live in America, not just the Democrats. It’s not the Democrat nation. Or the Democrat religion. Or the Democrat life-style choice. “Democrat” is nothing but a political party and it USED to stand for something. Maybe you should read how a Russian would vote, if he could.

Or maybe… it’s just all about YOU. And NOT your constituents. Yeah, that’s it…
