I just saw this great interview between Soledad O’Brian and Rep. Cynthia McKinney. Backstory is that the Rep. wasn’t recognized by Capitol Police going though security, felt insulted, tried to keep going, got grabbed by the officer, and then hit the officer in the chest. Now she may have charges filed against her for assaulting an officer. So the Rep. tries to call it racial profiling, starts blabbing about discrimination, minorities, the war in iraq, a potential strike against Iran, anything but the issue at hand, which is her side of the story about what happened.
Soledad does a great job at relentlessly shutting down Rep. McKinney nonsensical tirades. Bravo!
