It's taken 20 some-odd years, and who knows how many rude gestures at the sign announcing her 'parkway' in Avondale, but it's finally happened.
She finally snapped.
I don't know about you, but PUNCHING A COP is not generally all that high on my list of things to check off in life.
What made her snap, might you ask? The Capitol Police officer failed to recognize her when she went around the security check-in, which, like being able to trade stock on inside tips, is yet another perk afforded our illustrious representatives.
The officer might have failed to recognize Jihad Cindy, since she's gone from the braided hairstyle she's worn forever and ever to something out of the Dionne Warwick collection.
Oh, and, apparrently, this all has to do with race, as it always has, with Cindy. But don't worry. Nancy Pelosi says to not make a big deal of this.
Really, Nancy? So, a member of Congress assaults a Capitol Police officer, and, according to you, it's not a big deal? Fantastic.
This just plays into the grand plan that paT and I have concocted to get rid of Cindy once and for all. But we can't detail that just yet...give us til 2008 or so...
EDIT: - I didn't want to believe that this could get any better, but, as it usually does, it has gotten even better. Now, Cynthia, with a cadre of schoolchildren behind her, is claiming that the officer assaulted her, and that her sex, race, and 'progressiveness' were at the root of the assault.
Quoth, the shrill one's legal counsel:
Myart further called the incident racial profiling and said there was "no excuse" for Capitol Police not recognizing his client, and Raffauf said she was stopped solely because of her race, gender and politics.
"It is the job of the Capitol Police to protect members of Congress. As a part of that job, they are to know who those members are," he said. "Whenever you put a police officer out on the street, he is supposed to know his job."
Members of Congress are allowed to bypass the metal detectors and security checkpoint. They are supposed to wear a lapel pin that identifies them as lawmakers. McKinney acknowledges she wasn't wearing one when she was stopped, but concurred with Myart that police should know who she is.
"The pin is not the issue," the six-time congresswoman said. "The issue is face recognition."
You mean to tell me, that had she been wearing her Congressional Lapel Pin, she could have come in sprayed up like a cast member of Black.White, and no one would have batted an eye, yet, since she chose to not wear said pin, the officer on duty, not recognizing the High Sea-Hag of District 4, DID HIS JOB, and is therefore the purveyor of the assault?
Do yourself a favor, Cindy. Resign. Do it now while you still have a little face to save.
