Cynthia McKinney Re-elected

Just a note. The name Cynthia McKinney may not mean much to most of you. She was however, the first member of Congress to say that the Bush administration ignored warnings about September 11th, and also stated that members of the BUsh administration might have benefitted financially.

In the anti-dissent America of 2002, she was not surprisingly defeated. But what is surprising is, she won re-election to congress, in Georgia, in 2004! And without back-tracking, or retraction. SO we do know there will be a least a little 'speaking truth to power' when Congress comes back into session.

All is not gloom and doom.

What's even better is that the woman who beat her (with Repubican hellp), Denise Majette, was defeatd when she ran for the Senate in Georgia. I wonder where all those Repubicans were when she needed them?

Cynthia is a nut.

Oh yeah, Billy McKinney is a really great guy, too. He blames everything on "Jews".

I guess it's not hard to understand why some of YOU actually like her.

If she is, then the 4th Congressional District in Georgia are full of nuts that voted for her. And BTW, her district is mostly white; I know because I have relatives who live in her district.

I don't hate them. But I do dislike them....BECAUSE THEY'RE NUTS! (which, btw, is the reason that I thought you guys liked them....unlike what YOU were probably thinking )

BTW, they're also racist. Just listen to them talk.

I think you are one of "those" white men(?) who are terrified of knowledgeable blacks who are not afraid to share the knowledge and not allow their people to be hoodwinked by white politicians...

Oooh, you have relatives there??? Big deal.

Most of that district is pretty much all of DeKalb County. (and the southern part of Gwinnett County)

Here's a blurb about DeKalb County demographics....

http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclop...ounty,-Georgia

As of the census2 of 2000, there are 665,865 people, 249,339 households, and 156,584 families residing in the county. The population density is 959/km˛ (2,483/mi˛). There are 261,231 housing units at an average density of 376/km˛ (974/mi˛). The racial makeup of the county is 35.82% White, 54.23% Black or African American, 0.23% Native American, 4.01% Asian, 0.05% Pacific Islander, 3.53% from other races, and 2.12% from two or more races. 7.89% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race.

You were saying????

Oh yeah, that's right. I don't like the WS, so I must be racist.
