The Brilliance of Georgia's 4th

If you haven't seen this clip of Congressman Hank Johnson's stellar performance in a House hearing on stationing an additional 8,000 US military personal in Guam, let this piece of action thrill your hair follicles.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Hank Johnson of Georgia's 4th District.
This year, the American people will pay $169,300 to Mr. Johnson for his upstanding efforts at upholding the constitution.

If this stellar district sounds familiar, it should. The voters there are responsible for electing one particular Congresswoman of note, not for her unrivaled legislative prowess, nor for her supreme acts of statesmanship, but for vastly different reasons.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Cynthia McKinney.
2008 Green Party Presidential Nominee, US Congresswoman for 8 years, and one noted moment of assault on a police officer while serving in office.

People of Georgia's 4th District, what's wrong with you?

What are the odds that a majority of voters there are crackheads? :^)

I'd say its a long shot, but point well made.

have you noticed how the majority black districts all seem to be represented by crackpots?

racist to point this out?
maybe, but does it change the observation?

It does make one wonder what's in the water supply in that particular Congressional district.

Gino, as usual, a deliciously provocative way to phrase an anecdotal observation ;)

Sola, gotta be all the nuts they grow there.
