Cynthia Mckinney Redux

Yet ANOTHER example of bad congressional manners:

"Another female member of the Congressional Black Caucus went unrecognized by a Capitol Police officer Wednesday. This time it was Rep. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) who wasn’t wearing her Congressional lapel pin. But, then again, she hadn’t changed her hairstyle, either.

Brown was stopped as she entered the Cannon House Office Building on Wednesday morning to attend the weekly Democratic Caucus meeting. When the Congresswoman walked into the building and around the metal detector, as Members are allowed to do, an officer — also a black woman — stopped Brown and asked for identification.

“If you don’t recognize me, call your supervisor,” a clearly irritated Brown said, according to eyewitnesses.

Another officer on the scene quickly confirmed that Brown was indeed a Member of Congress, and Brown went on her way.

Brown’s chief of staff, Ronnie Simmons, who was with the Congresswoman at the time, said he thinks the officer may have been new and “just didn’t recognize” Brown. He said the Congresswoman could understand how, with so many Members going through that door at one time, an officer might not know all their faces.

However, he said, “I think the officer was a little bit curt with the Congresswoman.” Simmons said his boss feels that the Capitol Police officers “probably need just a little more sensitivity training.”


You know, I DO believe this is a RACE issue. Black Congress women hate cops.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
