And You Thought Maxine Waters was Trouble

Jonah Goldberg's Friday column about the conspiracy-mongering Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA) is a bracing read. According to the original Washington Post article, Rep. McKinney not only believes that the Bush administration knew about the September 11th attacks before they happened, but decided to do nothing to stop them so that friends of the Administration could become war profiteers in the resulting conflict. That she would make such a charge, in the absence of any evidence whatsoever, sets a breathtaking new low of irresponsibility for a public official. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, though, she stands by her comments. Interested parties might want to direct campaign support to her primary challenger, former State Court judge Denise Majette.
