A Conspiracy of Haters Is Holding This Batshit Crazy Woman Down

Remember Cynthia McKinney? The crazy former Georgia congresswoman is running on the Green Party ticket year. The Washington Post caught up with her and discovered that she has, if anything, gotten crazier:
McKinney travels in a rented Hyundai Sonata, taking turns driving with an aide who has accompanied her on at least one all-night drive from Maryland to Louisiana. Her skeleton staff frequently has no idea where she is. The calendar on her campaign Web site is empty. Her phone goes unanswered; the box for her voice mail is full.

She is a Candidate of Mystery.

When she surfaces, as she did for two appearances and a live Internet discussion one recent weekend in Georgia -- the state that sent her to Congress six times and kicked her out twice -- she's got a lot to say about a lot of things, but not much about running for president. (She's on the ballot in 32 states, but not here in Georgia, where she blasts "restrictive ballot laws" and asks followers to write in her name Nov. 4.)

She believes there are "credible reports" that the U.S. military dumped 5,000 prisoners -- each with "a single bullet wound to the head" -- in Louisiana swamps using Hurricane Katrina as cover.

She believes that Jeb Bush -- the president's brother -- facilitated Colombian drug shipments into the United States when he was governor of Florida.

She believes the "corporate media" are censoring stories about the United States "restarting dirty wars in Latin America" and about "Bush's real problem with Eliot Spitzer," a head-turner that she dangles without specifying which Bush she is talking about or explaining.

"We don't really know who killed Martin Luther King," she says, rolling now as she addresses the Panther group in the auditorium. "We don't really know who killed Bobby Kennedy. We don't really know who killed John Kennedy. We don't really know who killed Tupac Shakur."
She's polling at one percent nationally in the only semi-recent poll I could find. Bob Barr? About three percent.
