Presidential Politics

I have to admit that I have no interest in the current Presidential election. Choosing a candidate to vote for will be like choosing whether I want cancer or AIDS. Either way, you're going to get screwed. Just when I thought the system was as bad as it could get, along comes Green Party candidate Cynthia McKinney. McKinney is a former United States Congresswoman from Georgia (1993-2003). She is so far in left field she can't see the damn stadium. She was voted out of office (primarily by Republican crossover voters) after she said that President George Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened. Her career finally came to an end when she struck a United States Capitol Police officer in the chest after he tried to stop her from walking around a metal detector in the Capitol building.

Now this idiot is running for President of the United States. Granted, she has a snowball's chance in hell of winning. But, she is still crazier than a shit-house rat. Recently, she said that she has learned that the United States government "systematically killed" 5,000 prison inmates in Louisiana and "dumped their bodies in a swamp." Evidently, these people were mostly male and mostly "people of color." Following their "execution" data was reportedly entered "into a Pentagon computer."

Our forefathers, when they wrote Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, forgot an important requirement for the office of President. All candidates for President should undergo a mental status exam and psychiatric assessment by a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. After 15 seconds into the interview with McKinney, most psychiatrists would start filling out the paperwork for an involuntary commitment. Perhaps, after she is properly medicated, she can help drain that Louisiana swamp and start showing us those 5,000 bodies.
