Never a dull moment.

Crazy Cynthia's gotten herself arrested by the Israeli Navy, trying to blow past a patrol boat to run supplies into Gaza.
According to the Free Gaza group, McKinney said, "This is an outrageous violation of international law against us. Our boat was not in Israeli waters, and we were on a human rights mission to the Gaza Strip," before authorities confiscated cell phones.

"President Obama just told Israel to let in humanitarian and reconstruction supplies, and that's exactly what we tried to do....for example, if you stack these RPG launchers just so, and drape a poncho over them, you can construct a tent very humanitarianly."
Actually, I made that last part up. The group had to know that their chances of getting pulled over by the Israeli sea cops approached 100%, so no way were they ridin' dirty. I'm sure that the hold was full of photogenically-stacked cases of halal Ramen Pride and Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup. This was done for the publicity, plain and simply, like those amateur seadogs who go play bumper cars with whalers.

Props to Cynthia though, for still being crazy after all these years. Five gets you ten that the ex-Congresswoman goes out robbing a bank with the SLA, or strolls into an Israeli disco wearing semtex lingerie someday. She's just that nutty.

That nutty , yes.

But also that stupid, she'd probably detonate inthe dressing room.

You know she was along for the ride and had ZERO effect on onthe organization.

Nothing like a committed true believer with a case of the "pay attention to meeeeeeeeeeee"s. There's one in every family ...

Hey, at least McKinney came by her JOOOOO hatred the old-fashioned way, learning it at her father's (anti-semitic) knee...

I hope he taught her to duck along with how to spell...

The crazy is in the eyes... And yeah, like daddy like daughter.

The woman (I know, that's a bit generous) has a serious martyr/Jesus (ironic, with the whole Jewish Carpenter thing) complex, and I really wish someone would help that cause along.

Yeah, nothing like a holiday conversation that starts off with an indignant "I don't care if it is Thanksgiving, I don't eat meat. You know that. Why didn't you make me some fish?" whilst flailing around theatrically in the kitchen before popping a few pills and being drunk on meds for the rest of the day, occasionally delivering impassioned, albeit slurred diatribes on the value of recycled bog roll and the dangers of PCBs in polar bear liver. Invariably they're the ones that send out a saccharin sweet, brain rotting holiday newsletter that never mentions the pregnant 15 year old daughter or the son that got popped for selling her meds, again.

Why didn't they just sink and and chum the water. Save us all a lot of pain and embarrassment.

Maybe she'll try tbe Rachel Corrie gambit next. One can hope.

wv = "boakeri." You mean that John whatsisname was driving the boat for this charade?

oops: "tbe" s/b "the"

Joanna said...

OA: Good Lord, that's my sister in another 20 years. Or at least it would be if we knew where she was and she came to holidays ... ugh.

"President Obama just told Israel to let in humanitarian and reconstruction supplies, and that's exactly what we tried to do..."

Psst: Ms. McKinney, you might wanna tone down the whole "President Obama told you to" thing, if you're supposedly championing another state's sovereignty. We wouldn't much appreciate another country TELLING us to tone down our own security measures, now would we?

Using the term 'lingerie' in the same paragraph with that woman brings forth a visual I did not need.

Meh, I prayed to the gods Zeus and Poseidon to release the Cracken upon their craft but alas, my offerings have been deemed as unworthy as she is.

Matt G wins the "failing to read the post" award for the day, the part where Tam says "Actually, I just made that last part up."

But hey, when you're all wrapped up in a fixed-state world view, why bother reading? It's only going to confirm what you know, right?

Tam said...

"...part where Tam says "Actually, I just made that last part up.""

Uh, actually, I only made up the part about the RPG's.

If you read the linked article, Cynthia actually said "President Obama just told Israel..."

Tam said...

PS: Notice how I tactfully failed to make any snarky comments about "Failing To Read The Post" awards? ;)

Well, I suppose one could be excused for assuming our gracious hostess made up that quote to the effect of "My president told your country to let me violate your sovereignty."

Because, really, who could be so stupid as to actually say that? Aside from McKinney, that is. Okay, so it also reeks of Bidenism. But didn't the Israelis get the memo that it's all right to like and respect us again, now that Smirkychimp W. McHitlerburton is gone?

Unless... you don't suppose the Israelis liked and trusted Bush more than they do The One, do you? Now that I think about it, "Netanyanhu" does look sort of like a Neocon name...
