Mission Accomplished: Cynthia McKinney is Finished

Back on April 4, I wrote the following:
Cynthia McKinney is unfit for her job because she is a do-nothing demogogue whose apparent goal in life is self-promotion through race-baiting and conspiracy theories.

So I am throwing down the gauntlet.

Unless a better candidate appears, I will run for Congress against Cynthia. If I have to spend every day after work knocking on doors in my district for the next 20 years, I will do what it takes to defeat her. If I have to places calls to every person in this country asking for donations to the campaign, I will do it.

Of course I would rather not have to do it myself. I will happily support any candidate who stands a better chance than I. I don't really care if they are Democrat, Socialist, Green Party, or Communist.
I spent the next few weeks exploring the idea of running against Cynthia McKinney myself. At that time, I had little confidence that anyone else would have a chance of defeating her. I finally decided not to run after I discovered that the State of Georgia essentially bans independents from voting ballots.

I did decide that I was going to do whatever it took to remove McKinney from office.
While I am not going to officially run against McKinney, she is going to have to deal with me one way or another. This blog is going to become the best source for truth about her ineffectiveness. And McKinney is going to see me on the campaign trail.
I decided that one way or another I was going to have a say in this race. Since then I have written many articles documenting the ineffectiveness of McKinney. And I eventually became the defacto person to go to for those interested in defeating McKinney. During the past few months, I have had political consultants, the media, community leaders, elected officials, and ordinary citizens contact me to find out how they could help me defeat McKinney.

While many blogs are taking credit for helping defeat Joe Lieberman in Connecticut, I believe that I played a role in helping defeat Cynthia McKinney. Not only have I become the best place for information about why McKinney needs to go, but I have played a role in Hank Johnson's campaign to defeat her.

While my efforts began as ABC ("Anyone But Cynthia"), I have come to respect the man who defeated her in last week's runoff, Hank Johnson. After meeting Hank and hearing him speak on many occasions, I believe that Hank has great potential. I also great appreciate his stated goal to represent the entire district. I am now planning on holding Hank accountable to this goal to represent us all.
