McKinney and Lieberman Refuse to Bow Out Gracefully

Cynthia McKinney (D-GA), the crazy woman who shoved a Capitol Hill police officer a few months ago, got buried in the primary last night, losing by 20%.  Rather than make a nice concession speech to her mature and intelligent opponent, McKinney blamed the media for her lunacy and crazy rants.  She only has herself to blame.  She is a complete embarrassment to the Democratic Party and to the United States.  Luckily, she has been fired.


   Not to be outdone, Joe Lieberman (D-CT) also gave a bizarre concession speech in which he vowed to fight on to the general election.  Joe refused to accept the results of his own party and is putting his personal ambition and arrogance over the party and over the State of Connecticut.  He came across as elitist, out of touch, and completely full of himself.


Now I'm all for giving voters more candidates to choose come election time, but Joe is such a phony.  He looked pathetic last night.  He does not care about Connecticut voters.  Joe Lieberman claims to be a good Democrat, but if he stays on the ballot, he puts the Democratic party at risk of losing seats across the state.  Why is this?  Well, if Joe runs in the general election, he will bring out a large number of Republicans to vote for him.  While they may vote for him, they will also vote for other Republicans in other Congressional races.


There are some seats in Connecticut that are vulnerable if a large number of Republicans come out to vote.  That is a major problem for the Democrats.  If Lieberman stays on the ballot, those Congressional seats will be harder to hold.  If the GOP takes even one seat, it could prevent the Democrats from taking the majority in the House.

The problem is that Cynthia McKinney and Joseph Lieberman think it is their right to be in Congress.  It isn't.  They have become power hungry monsters in their time in Washington.  They have lost touch with reality and that is why the people have voted against them.


Nobody likes to lose, but their lack of class and character showed last night.  Let's hope Joe comes to his senses and steps aside.  Let's also hope we never hear from Cynthia McKinney ever again.
