What a disgrace to Americans and Democrats...

I am sure you have all heard about McKinney and the capitol police scuffle. What a disgrace to have her represent people, she broke the rules and is trying to use race to make her look good. Today she issued another conference where she "apologized" again, but in no way did she say sorry for acting that way. I hope she gets charged with attacking an officer and doesn't win her primary. From what i have read members of her own party wont talk to her and are trying to distance themselves from her.

it all comes down to civility.

some type of people can't keep their emotions in check. they don't have the rationale for it.

RE: What a disgrace to Americans and Democrats...

She's being roundly condemned by Democrats. She has no defenders. We live in a democracy. The people who live in her district sent someone who represents what they are all about. Her actions are their problem now. But tell me, after a month that started with the VP shooting someone in the face, followed by various aides being arrested for shop lifting, child molesting and now leaking classified intelligence for political damage, isn't some crazy bitch slapping a cop pretty minor in comparision? In the end, she'll pay more than Cheney will - a guy who got drunk and shot somebody.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: What a disgrace to Americans and Democrats...

As long as Cheney shoots somebody in the face I'm okay with McKinney hitting a cop. I mean, lets be rational here. Unfortunately, I don't think the two are balanced, I mean Cheney's victim could have died. How many bitch-slaps on a cop does McKinney get to equal shooting a lawyer?

Ooops! He shot a lawyer? Okay, that's good for lowering the free bitch-slap count. I mean, shooting lawyer who is also a lobbyist and a big Republican contributor can't be considered a real crime, can it?

So I propose that McKinney gets to bitch-slap 3 cops to every Repo-lobbyist-campaign contributing lawyer. But if Cheney just shoots some citizen then that is worth 20 McKinney bitch-slaps. What do you guys think?

That has nothing to do with what she did. Again democrats trying to shift the topic.

Looks like a lot more red states than blue, also note that the red controls the senate, the house, and the white house. Your views are in the minority. And unless the democrats stop the name calling and unite i see republicans dominating all 3 branches. But the key problem if for the democrats to unite you have to many radicle people and other real democrats don't want to associate with them and would rather associate with the republicans.

yes, the name calling is getting way out of hand.
