9-11 Denier McKinney May Be Heading Home

We may have some reason to celebrate on August 8th. That's when Cynthia McKinney will face fellow Democrat Hank Johnson in a run-off election for the Democratic nomination for her seat in Congress. Listen to these poll numbers:

A new poll by InsiderAdvantage shows Johnson leading McKinney 46 percent to 21 percent, with one-third of voters undecided. The survey recorded the responses of 480 likely voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percentage points.


The old rule of thumb in politics is that the undecideds will break heavily against the incumbent. For McKinney to be sitting at 21 percent is stunning. I doubt that this has a whole lot to do with her 9-11 antics and quite a bit to do with her assault on a Capitol Hill police officer. But we'll take a victory over her any way we can get it.

Full Disclosure: I am a Pajamas Media blogger at Brainster's Blog and Johnson has run advertisements on PJ Media blogs.

But the truth movement is rapidly growing in number!

Don't you listen?

Actually, it'd be better for the republicans if McKinney kept her seat. Hers is a constituency that isn't likely to go republican anyway.

Generally, it's easier for one side or another to win in the field of public debate if thier opponents are stark raving insane.

If anything positive can be said for Cynthia "Jihad Cindy" McKinney, it's that she's good for laughs.

Sword, that's true, but I'd like to see the Democrats become the loyal opposition and giving McNinny the boot would be a good start. Absolutely whoever wins the Democratic primary will win the general, so there's no chance the GOP can pick up the seat.

Agree with Pat. I'd rather have a loyal opposition than lunatics any day. Heck, I'd even be OK with democrats in general if they were the sane ones. Of course, that's influenced by the fact that I'm partially in a position to tailor my income to the tax code, but still.

I don't see the problem with him calling the Iraqi PM an antisemite. He is.

I have a problem with Howard Dean calling people anti-semite only when it's convenient for him, but otherwise ignoring it.

Ok, good. I've seen numerous conservative blogs pointing the comment out like Dean was wrong.

I have a problem with Howard Dean calling people anti-semite only when it's convenient for him, but otherwise ignoring it.

Oh, you're totally correct with having a problem with it. I never said he wasn't an opportunist, he certainly is. It's like America (and the West in particular) seems to pretend we don't have a problem with antisemitism. I've seen pictures of plenty of pro-Hizbollah rallies in numerous Western countries. We obviously have a problem.

You take me wrong no rep. here! Just think there is a time and place for things politic wise. Dems were all in on dealing with other anti-S. On a reg basis . They both suck!!! REP AND DEMS

....with Cynthia McKinney's conduct as a congresswoman. That is why she needs to come home and be replaced."

Well said Hank!

Pat, dont underestimate the criminal stupidity of the 4th district. I used to live there and I've seen it first hand. This thing is far from over, especially given that a popular ex-mayor has vouched for her sorry butt.

The one upside to her winning is that we may get to see her on the Better Know Your District segment of the Colbert Report. They've already done the 1st, 8th(my district), and 11th..so i'm guessing they tried the fourth but she chickened out.
