She Lost By A Hair
U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney lost her bid for Congress to Hank Johnson in the Georgia Democratic primary.
Reasons abound. To wit:
1. Voting irregularities (McKinney's claim)
2. The Evil Media (also her claim).
3. How about her constituents getting sick and tired of her antics? Whether spouting off conspiracy theories about 911 or going all Naomi Campbell on a Capitol Hill security guard, McKinney undoubtedly lost the respect of her base. Black folks don't always have to vote in lock step because a candidate is an incumbent, or a Democrat or an African American, you know.
4.Here's what I think: It had to be the hair. Lately it's looked a hot mess, and was hardly in "blackwoman order" as Prof. Kim would say.
