Let's pretend that The Washington Times is an unbiased source of information. Later, we'll pretend that GIANT talking monkey pirates are flying out of my butt.
GOP gets out vote for foe
Nearly 35 percent of the Republicans in Georgia's 4th Congressional District are expected to cross over and vote in tomorrow's Democratic primary in an effort to oust Rep. Cynthia A. McKinney.
The Republicans would join a strong Jewish vote in support of Mrs. McKinney's foe, former state judge Denise Majette.
"We've been trying to get out the message that we need them to vote in the [Republican] primary, but everybody so detests McKinney," said Dale Ranta, chairman of the DeKalb County Republican Party. He estimated that more than one-third of his party members will opt to vote in the Democratic primary.
"It is unfortunately more than I care to hear, that 35 percent [figure]," he said.
Three Republican groups in the 4th District have formed to vote out Mrs. McKinney. Even their names portray what has become vehement opposition: "Goodbye Cynthia," "Anybody but McKinney" and "New Leadership for DeKalb."
[. . .] A Majette campaign spokeswoman said that while her candidate is not seeking Republican votes, "it looks like our opponent is doing that for us."
But Dana Mott, a spokeswoman for Mrs. McKinney, said it is "absolutely a Republican effort" to remove the congresswoman.
[. . .] Since July 1, Mrs. Majette has outraised Mrs. McKinney by 7-to-1.
And in case you'd forgotten, McKinney is Evil Incarnate, a witch who consorts with daemons (print and finger), and is by association anti-Israel, anti-Semetic and anti-American. And her hair looks goofy.
While the five-term lawmaker has denied accusations that she is anti-Israel, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan who has been accused repeatedly of anti-Semitism visited Atlanta over the weekend to voice support for Mrs. McKinney.
An article in the Nation of Islam's weekly newspaper, Final Call, notes that Mrs. McKinney is being assisted in her volunteer coordination by Steve Cokely.
Mr. Cokely gained notoriety in the late 1980s when he said that Jewish doctors had injected black babies with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson has also visited the district to give his backing to Mrs. McKinney.
Oddly, they neglected to remind readers that Rev. Jackson said "Hymietown" that one time. Instead, they merely place his name in proximity to the Nation of Domination types and hope for the best.
Not sure whether to end this with the lyrics to Garbage's Paranoid, which at least has a good beat and it's easy to dance to (and if you get that reference, you're old), or Bang Bang Bang by Tracy Chapman, which seems more appropriate.
