Runoff Today: Help Boot Cynthia McKinney

Today is finally the runoff election for the 4th District Democratic primary race between Cynthia McKinney and Hank Johnson. And it is the opportunity to finally rid ourselves of the most ineffective member of Congress, Cynthia McKinney.

Over the past months, I have documented Cynthia McKinney's lack of effectiveness and lies here, here, here, and here. And today the voters of the 4th District of Georgia can finally say "ENOUGH!"

We have had enough of a representative who constantly embarasses us!
We have had enough of a representative who doesn't care about us!
We have had enough of a representative who, despite her power and wealth, blames all her troubles on racism!
We have had enough of a representative who serves at the behest of wealthy donors that do not live in her district!
We have had enough of a representative who has no shame about lying to her constituents in political ads and in televised debates!
We have had enough of a representative who believes her constituents to be either too stupid or too ignorant to uncover her lies!

So if you are a registered voter in the 4th District of Georgia, please go vote for Hank Johnson today. As long as you are a registered voter and did not vote in the Republican primary a few weeks ago, you are eligible to vote in today's runoff.

Some of you may be Republicans who think that leaving Cynthia McKinney in office will hurt the Democrats. You couldn't be more wrong. The Democratic Party has turned its back on McKinney as has the Congressional Black Caucus. Cynthia McKinney doesn't hurt or embarrass her party. Cynthia McKinney hurts and embarasses us, the citizens of the 4th District. I'm tired of hearing national media say that the 4th District must be full of idiots to keep electing McKinney.

And finally, if you think that you will wait to vote against McKinney in the general election, I beg of you to reconsider. In effect, today IS the general election in the 4th District. The district is overwhelmingly Democratic, on top of the fact that the Republican party has not nominated a candidate with a legitimate chance of running a competitive race. So if you wish to have any say in who your representative is, today is your chance.
