perspective, people

While I do happen to think Cynthia McKinney is batshit crazy, this is not really that bad. Anyone who has worked in politics knows that being called a fool is practically a compliment. I still have warm fuzzy memories of an earlier boss calling me, at various points during my tenure, "incompetent," "retarded" and my personal favorite, referring to me as "the idiot assistant" while on the phone with the editor in chief of a national magazine.

And people ask why I don't work in politics any more.

I saw the video on CNN and I agree about the "fool" part. I did, however, laugh out loud when she pranced back in and said "hey, media, I'm not sure if you know this, but you are NOT ALLOWED to use anything that came out of my big mouth while my big ass was not in this chair. Do you understand me???" And then CNN posted a the entire thing on their website. Love it.
