A Graceful Exit...

...for Cynthia McKinney

Yeah! That'll happen!

She delivered one last parting shot to the administration. What a shock.

The Independent Conservative has the goods:

In her parting shot and final effort to waste taxpayer dollars and government time on complete nonsense.

Rep. Cynthia McKinney Introduces Bush Impeachment Bill

WASHINGTON — In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney announced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.

The legislation has no chance of passing and serves as a symbolic parting shot not only at Bush but also at Democratic leaders. Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has made clear that she will not entertain proposals to sanction Bush and has warned the liberal wing of her party against making political hay of impeachment.

McKinney, a Democrat who drew national headlines in March when she struck a Capitol police officer, has long insisted that Bush was never legitimately elected. In introducing her legislation in the final hours of the current Congress, she said Bush had violated his oath of office to defend the Constitution and the nation’s laws.

She has hosted numerous panels on Sept. 11 conspiracy theories and suggested that Bush had prior knowledge of the terrorist attacks but kept quiet about it to allow friends to profit from the aftermath. She introduced legislation to establish a permanent collection of rapper Tupac Shakur’s recordings at the National Archives and calling for a federal investigation into his killing.
Some just won't go gently into that good night. But, of course, why should any Reasonable pol not mouth-foam at the travesty of it all. Of course the President should be impeached! How dare he presume the people voted for him! No one in their right mind would support him. Only Fools would dare put him in office. And they shouldn't even have a vote.

Never mind that Fools far from unanimously support the President. His more Foolable attempts to embrace Machiavelle have not endeared him to them, after all.

But far be it for someone as Reasonable as Ms. McKinney to observe that. No, better to pointlessly pander to her writhing, mouth-foaming supporters. Who apparently couldn't muster up enough votes for her.

Here's your hat, Congresswoman. What's your hurry?
