(Congressman Cynthia McKinney is that BLACK WOMAN!! (her words and emphasis) who hit a cop on the Hill and got away with it.)
She claimed racism or racial profiling or some such nonsense...judging by her blog, she would know a lot about racism.
"The good ol' boy cracker-crats of the Republican party are having themselves a regular hootenanny over allegations that congresswoman Cynthia McKinney landed a punch on a security guard at the Capitol." [McKinney Campaign Blog]
Cracker, cracker, cracker...that's ok but I can think of a similar word for her race which is strictly verboten.
Hmm...I can't call her that word but I can call her a hypocrite!
