CYNTHIA MCKINNEY, TOO GOOD FOR CONGRESS

In what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney introduced a bill Friday to impeach President Bush.
Cynthia McKinney is on of the few honest people on Capitol Hill. As such, she’s had to go it alone, with no support from the press or her party.
People have been talking impeachment about Dumbya for years now, and when somebody finally has the balls to introduce a motion to impeach, everyone is falling all over themselves to ridicule her.
The spineless wimps that pass for leadership in the Democratic Party, despise her because she won’t play their corrupt “go along to get along” games.
The hacks that pass for journalists have been instructed by their fatcat media owners to cover her with ridicule, and obediently they’ve complied.
We’re watching a character assassination taking place before our eyes, and I haven’t noticed anyone standing up for her.
Washington, D.C. has become a refuge for venal, spineless and vicious people who will happily attempt to destroy someone who actually stands up for the American people.
They won’t destroy McKinney, though, no matter how much they despise and scorn her. They won’t even slow her down.
She’s better than them, and they know it.
In the whole sorry, sordid spectacle that passes for American leadership, McKinney is one of the precious few who will not have to hang her head when all is accounted for.
She’s not a sellout, and she’s not a liar.
For today, that’s enough to make her my hero.

The stark symbolism contrasting with the sensuality of the skin tones makes this shot troubling and stirring, awakening in the viewer a spiritually erotic response.

Armpits to die for.

One moment, he’s sitting quietly,

The next, he’s hurled himself of the side of the boat. Spontaneity like that is exciting in a man.

This is so complex and satisfying. At first he appears to be leaping up the hill, then he seems to be falling. Our man, leaping and dancing for joy, reminds me a little of Fred Astaire in Finians Rainbow, dancing into his future. I hope you’ll forgive me for invoking the Spirit of Dorothy, but maybe he’s following his own yellow brick road to the Emerald City, an image of wholeness and joy.
Fellow Friends of Dorothy, have a great weekend.

Be loved,

DEL

    Impeach for Peace has created holiday impeachment cards that allow your friends and family to initiate the impeachment process. Deck the halls of congress with colorful impeachment petitions! Now that Representative McKinney has introduced Articles of Impeachment to Congress, it’s time for us to show the other Members of Congress our support. So, Impeach for Peace created the Holiday Impeachment image, and researched a company that will allow you to send jumbo sized postcards along with a personalized message using your web browser. To learn more about this method of inititiating impeachment, go to: http://ImpeachForPeace.org/HolidayImpeachNow.html

    Soon, Santa will be delivering sacks and sacks of mail to Nancy Pelosi initiating impeachment via the House of Representative’s own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution (H.R. 635). What better gift to give this holiday season than the restoration of our democracy? Truly the gift that keeps on giving. Over this past year, Bush has become an even greater threat to our Constitution. Lucky for us, the rules of the US House of Representatives allow for individual citizens like you and I to initiate the impeachment process directly! This process was successfully used to impeach in the past.

    Be a part of history and have a merry impeachment this season!

    Oh, if only we could impeach Bush.

    …I always thought I’d be a better friend to The Wicked Witch — she had such issues. But, I did so love Dorothy’s shoes!

    Sdaly it’s probably going to end up being more symbolic than seriously considered, but maybe I’m just being pessimistic. We can but hope. I love the audacity of your jumping pictures, and it seems like you’ve been staring at Jesus on the cross perhaps a little too much… 😉
