[Sigh] At least once a week for two and half years I’ve gotten at least one email from some leftwinger (often from Germany or even more far-off Berkeley, California) demanding, imploring, pleading that I apologize for attacking Cynthia McKinney. This or that revelation, they insist, proves that she was right all along. She is a hero. A Nubian goddess. A truth teller. And I am a bigot, a fool, an apologist for murder, a conspirator. Seriously, the emails never stop.
Anyway, I tell all of these people the same thing. She’s awful and I don’t retract a word. Here’s the column that started it all. It begins reasonably, I think:
“I don’t mean to be such a pain in the ass to Cynthia McKinney (D., Ga.), but it appears this is the fastest route to her brain.”
