Jihad Cyndi faces runoff in GA Dem primary

Rep. Cynthia "Jihad Cyndi" McKinney, running on her impressive record of moonbattery and assaulting police officers, is in a run-off. Details:
Saying "you can't keep a good woman down," incumbent Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney kicked off her three-week campaign to beat former two-term DeKalb County commissioner Hank Johnson early Wednesday morning.

Johnson forced McKinney into a runoff with results that put them neck-and-neck in the 4th District race. With 98 percent of the precincts reporting, McKinney had 46.9 percent of the vote to Johnson's 44.5 percent.

"It's an exciting night. We've gone out and touched voters wherever they are in this district," Johnson said late Tuesday night.

Just after 11 p.m., McKinney had regained her lead over Johnson with 47 percent of the votes to Johnson's 44.6 percent. It was not the type of lead McKinney and her supporters had planned for as they prepared during the day for a victory party at a Decatur hotel.
Guess that party will have to wait.

McKinney lost four years ago to a political newcomer in Denise Majette. McKinney had floated the "Bush knew 9/11 was coming but did nothing to stop it so his oil buddies could get rich" paranoia, and the predominantly Democratic district punished her by voting her out. However, Majette got a big head and gave up her seat after ONE two-year term in order to run for the Senate, where she was defeated. McKinney got the seat back in 2004, where she's been an embarrassment ever since.

Now that the third opponent in the primary, architect John Coyne, is not going to be a part of the run-off, it will be interesting to see where his votes will go. I do wonder, though, if McKinney loses again...will her father go off on another one of his self-destructive anti-Semitic tirades? Now that would be pure entertainment...again.

Both Jihad Cyndis are enjoying pizza. Shehag no longer fasting? (h/t Michelle Malkin)
