These were the words of Cynthia McKinney as she gave her speech tonight, accepting her re-election win.
“Repeating a lie doesn’t make it true,” commented Rep McKinney in her acceptance speech.
As Cynthia gave her speech, she proudly wore her Congressional Member lapel pin, which she forgot to put on the day she assaulted a member of the Capitol Police force.
Cynthia spent the evening dancing with war protester Cindy Sheehan, doing the electric slide, jamming with her tamborine.
“The only special interest money you will see in my campaign coffer will be from the people,” McKinney boasted. She alluded to her appearance in the movie, American Blackout, as a basis for that claim (whatever that means).
As she spoke out against the war, supporters shouted “amens” and “yes ma’ams” as if they were supporting a Sunday morning sermon from the pulpit and as if they had a clue as to what she was talking about.
McKinney ignored her horrific reflection in the tele-prompter to boast that she was the first to speak of the “proven” scandals relating to the Carlyle Group and Haliburton. Oddly enough, she didn’t mention the evidence in these cases.
“We don’t even train and teach our children, and yet $21 billion can be lost in the Iraqi rebuilding and nothing can be said about it,” McKinney commented. Apparently, she is confused with her own education (or lack thereof).
NEWSFLASH, Cynthia: Our children receive education. Perhaps not in DeKalb, but that would be YOUR FAULT.

She and Hank Johnson will now face off in a runoff. Remember, last time she lost the runoff. We can only hope …
