Cynthia McKinney is hot-wired for instant explosion, hair standing on end, to pick up any stray signal of "racism." So she can start slugging....
Jamie Jeffords said it best at Eye of Polyphemus:
"It is comforting to know our body politic has nothing better to do than talk about Cynthia McKinney's hair. The woman believes she is above the law (because, you know, she makes it) and blows past a metal detector, refuses to show her ID in an office wing she doesn't normally enter, refuses to stop after a uniformed officer asks her to, beats said officer with her cell phone when he does catch up with her, and cries racism because he is just doing his job--a job which involves 30,000 people walking by him every day.
But we are all talking about her hair. It is enough to make you want to hit someone.
With a cellphone.
