Being from Georgia, and having gone to college in Dekalb County (and therefore in one of her districts while she was a Congresswoman), all I can do is laugh. And then laugh some more.
Cynthia McKinney is the Green Party Presidential Nominee Seriously? I mean, seriously?
“We have to do things we’ve never done before in order to have things we’ve never had before.”
Uh, she’s either a great sage or Boomer Esiason in drag (he’s the master of the obvious, if you didn’t know).
And it gets even better: “Hip Hop activist Rosa Clemente accepts VP slot”. Really? A hip hop activist can speak for all of the citizens in the US? Oh, but wait, she’s not running to help out every American. She’s running to help black hip hop kids:
“This campaign is the opportunity the Hip-Hop generation has been working for. This is our time to address the issues affecting our communities – rising unemployment, the high cost of food and housing, a lack of quality public education and access to higher education, the prison-industrial complex, and unaccountable corporate media. These issues are not being addressed by either the Republican or Democratic nominee. “I choose to do this, not for me, but for my generation, my community and my daughter. I don’t see the Green Party as an alternative; I see it as an imperative. I trust that my Vice Presidential run will inspire all people, but especially young people of color, to recognize that we have more then [sic] two choices. Together, we can build the future we’ve been wanting.”
Prison-industrial complex? Where’s all the stuff about being green? Saving the planet for future generations? Stopping big corporations and small town folks alike from ruining the environment? This is the Green party, not the young-people-of-color-hip-hop party. But she’s already hijacking it.
Remember when Cynthia tried to beat up the security guard in D.C.?
Oh Cynthia, honey, you just don’t know when to stop do you? Keep going though, you’re making my day.
