"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

McKinney Loses?????

Oh, perish the thought...

Violence just follows this broad around, according to the Washington Post:

McKinney, the state's first black congresswoman, said electronic voting machines are "a threat to our democracy" and lashed out a journalists, accusing them of injuring her mother and failing to "tell the whole story."

"My mother was hurt by someone in the press in this room tonight," McKinney said after losing to challenger Hank Johnson Tuesday. "One of my assistants needs stitches because of the press that are in this room tonight."

WXIA-TV said on its Web site that a boom microphone had struck members of McKinney's entourage: "In the confusion, McKinney staffers struck an 11Alive photographer and knocked his camera equipment to the ground." Earlier in the day, the station said a McKinney staffer had scuffled with another 11Alive photojournalist.

In her concession speech, McKinney repeated her criticism of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq, and said electronic voting machines, which have been used in all of Georgia's precincts since 2002, "are a threat to our democracy."

"Let the word go out. We aren't going to tolerate any more stolen elections. ... We want our party back!" she said.

If I may interject here to address the text I italicized and put in bold; would Ms. Mckinney please return the party to its rightful owners please. It is people like her (people like her does not have any connotation with color, so Lefties can relax), that are tearing the Democratic party down. Even in defeat she still doesn't get it.

John Evans, Mckinney's campaign manager said:

"It's over. Folks just beat us. They got a lot of white votes, a lot of Republican votes and they took some of our votes where we have been stable."
More of his ignorance is not necessary. Division is what it's all about for Mckinney, without it she has nothing. Unfortunatley she was born too late as the world she sees is not the world that it is.

Michelle Malkin has some good stuff here on the primary results as well as some great trackbacks in Day of the Diatribes and Primary Night Results.
