Cynthia McKinney Has Crazy Eyes

Which, I guess, explains her crazy hair: she's just accessorizing.

I don't know how to link this directly, so you're probably going to have to check this as soon as possible. has a link to video of McKinney attacking the media for asking her questions about her punching a Capitol Hill police officer.

She then stands up and leaves, forgetting that she's still wearing her microphone. Once off camera, she refers to her aide, Coz Carson, as "a fool," then realizes she's still miked. She comes back, and tells the reporter that only those remarks that she made while sitting in the chair may be used.

Obviously, the reporter didn't follow her instructions, or else I wouldn't know about any of this.

But this summary simply does not do justice to the video. There is no way I could sufficiently describe the air of total smug condescension. These are the words of a woman who feels complete and total assurance, based on long experience, that the media is inher back pocket. Not to mention her crazy eyes. If someone gets a permanent video capture, let me know and I'll link it.

Update: Independent Conservative has the video. Just as a reminder, the people of Georgia's Fourth District actually elected this nutbag to Congress. Repeatedly.
