Do You Know Who I Am?

Sorry folks. But you need to remember who she is and just how important she is.

Cynthia McKinney assaulted a Capitol police officer today as she tried unsuccessfully to sidestep a security checkpoint.


Woe to the Capitol Security personnel who forget just one of the Congress' 435 Representatives or 100 Senators who get privileged access. There's no reason why someone can't learn 535 different names and faces intimately after a week on the job right? Bottom line, these folks are just trying to do their part to keep our elected class safe.

Tip to anyone wanting to infiltrate Congress, dress up like Cynthia McKinney. They won't touch you with a 10 foot pole.

Update II:
And 'the last time this happened,' they had to put a picture of her up so that the security personnel would know who she was. Question: Isn't the purpose of the security staff to find potential security risks? Why are they being hassled into singling out Senators and Representatives for privileged attention? That's just distracting them from their core purpose. If McKinney wants a doorman, she needs to look elsewhere.

And apparently this isn't the first time this has happened. Too bad there've been no legislators standing up to say, "I've been stopped numerous times without incident."

McKinney obviously likes to play this game. If she didn't want any chance of mistaken identity, she'd wear the blasted pin that designates the wearer as the privileged congressional class.
