(Former) Rep. McKinney has made one last ditched effort on her way out the door – the proposal of the completely un-passable impeachment of Bush. I can just see how it went now. The doors are about to close on the 109th-lame-duck-congress, and Cynthia McKinney comes running around the corner, proposal in hand, knocking congressmen out of her way to get to the floor, makes the proposal, gets booed out of the room and punches the security officer on the way out the door. Almost makes me wish I was there…

There are two ways to view this proposal. One as a completely hollow political move and the other as a jaded attempt to demonstrate the injustice of Bush’s presidency. Either way, I’m annoyed, and I think stuff like this should be permanently banned by law. First of all, McKinney is crazy – so she should barely be allowed to sit in when congress is in session without a rattle and a baggy full of cheerios to keep her occupied. Second of all, if I’ve seen one thing this year, it’s stupid pointless bill proposals that aren’t worth the 975 pieces of paper their respectively printed on.

For example, the draft proposal. Everyone knows it won’t happen – but we look upon it as one mans political cry from the top of the hill to say “stop this war!” While that’s just dandy, I’d be willing to wager that that’s not what the founding fathers had in mind. That’s why we have newspapers and book deals. If you really want to stand up for something, then stand up for it, don’t hide behind it. There’s no merit in saying “this is what I believe in and I will do everything I can to make sure nothing happens about it.” This isn’t psycho-therapy and writing stuff down for the sake of writing stuff down isn’t curing anything. Stop wasting my time.

If the move is more political than symbolic, McKinney should cut her losses and run – and this time without hitting anyone. She’s been a nut inside the inside for as long as she’s been there, and to be honest, I can’t believe she’s made it this long without getting inadvertently shot by someone who thought she was a rabid mule. According the CNN, she “has has increasingly embraced her image as a controversial figure.” That’s great news…she’ll feel right at home in a straight jacket. I certainly can’t imagine what kind of job plans you’re forming when everyone thinks you’re a maniac…maybe she’ll get a talk show. Who knows. As long as I don’t have to keep reading about her, I’ll be fine…
