Cynthia McKinney Gives Orders to the Media

U.S. Representative Cynthia McKinney, D-Ga., who made news last month for allegedly punching a U.S. Capitol Police officer, is making news again.

During a Saturday interview with Georgia's WGCL-TV, CBS 46, McKinney was asked whether the incident with the police office had been a distraction. Her response to reporter Renee Starzyk was "You're a distraction because that seems to be all you want to talk about."

McKinney then walked out of the interview, unknowingly still wearing a live microphone. Off camera, she is then heard saying to an aid, "Now, you know what? They lied to Coz (McKinney's communications director, Coz Carson), and Coz is a fool!"

Realizing her mistake, McKinney returned to the interview room and told Starzyk, "Anything that is captured by your audio, that is captured while I'm not seated in this chair, is off the record and is not permissible to be used. Is that understood?"

McKinney giving orders to the media! This sounds like the same arrogance that caused her to believe that every Capitol Police officer should recognize her face.

Evidently WGCL-TV doesn't take orders very well. The station aired the footage anyway.

This story leaves me with but one question:
Who is the bigger idiot? McKinney or the voters who will no doubt re-elect her?

(Are you attending Peter Heck and Friends?)

We could ask the same question about a certain Congresswoman from Indianapolis and those who continue to vote for her.

Yes, I am planning to attend.

You know, I just saw the video clip of this on Yahoo! and had to shake my head. The arrogance and stupidity of this Congresswoman is only matched by those who continue to vote for her as their mouthpiece.

Then again, those who are still voting for Ray Nagin in LA. are running a close second right now.
