Its not easy being Green….or Cynthia McKinney!

Controversial former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney “is increasingly interested in being the Green Party Presidential nominee” in 2008, according to the Ballot Access News newsletter. While former Congresswoman McKinney certainly has an undisputed progressive voting record, this is the same woman who has very publicly made suggestions that the US government knew of the 9-11 attacks in advance but allowed them to occur. This is the same woman who blamed her first 2002 Congressional primary reelection defeat (she came back in 2004 only to be upset again in 2006) who suggested the reason she lost reelection could be summed up in two words – THE JEWS. And lets not forget her 2006 arrest for striking a police officer. The Green Party in hopes of increasing its numbers politically has been helping her pay off that debt … at events in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont. McKinney was also a featured speaker at the Green Party’s national conference in Pennsylvania in July. Quite honestly, I gained a lot of respect for the Green Party because of Jim Lendall and those who assisted him in 2006. However, the flirtations with McKinney quite Naderizes respect that had been earned!
