The SS McKinney Scuttled

Georgia's former US Representative, and aptly nicknamed cutest little communist in congress by talk radio show host Neal Boortz, has been hitting the crack pipe again and engaging in yet another act on the world stage of righteous indignation. This time she commandeered a yacht from some other lefty nutcase and along with some fellow travelers loaded up the ship and headed to Tel Aviv. Well actually, Gaza.

Cynthia has always been one to grab the spotlight, whether it was arriving five hours early to a State of the Union speech so that she could make sure she was on the aisle ready to pounce on the president and get her picture taken embracing them with all 32 of her pearly whites on display or it was jumping up front in some sort of anti-war protest.

Well, Ms McKinney, the jury is still out on that, decided it would be fun to load up this yacht with food and medical supplies and attempt to run the Israeli navy blockade of Gaza to deliver them. Trust me, they knew from the beginning that the adventure was doomed to failure, and in fact they probably could have cared less whether it succeeded or not, their whole point was to grab the attention of the media. Now they are claiming that their little vacation boat the SS Minnow was rammed by the Israeli navy. The Israeli navy claims that any damage done to the boat is the result of them trying to dodge the navy vessels. Tough choice here on who to believe, but in this case I think I will take the Israeli navy's word.

McKinney is a big anti-Semite and certainly no friend of Israel, just like her fellow former seaman Jimmy Carter. I think there was a reactor leak on the sub that Carter served on.
In a press release, the Free Gaza movement stated, “Contrary to international maritime law, the Israelis are actively preventing the Dignity from approaching Gaza or finding safe haven in either Egypt or Lebanon. Instead, the Israeli navy is demanding that the Dignity return to Cyprus — despite the fact that the ship does not carry enough fuel to do so.”
Liberals are so fascinated with self-inflicted gunshot wounds it isn't funny. They try to make their plight more sympathetic by citing the lack of fuel. Hey idiot, before embarking on this type trip do you think it might have been a good idea to plan for that eventuality? Gee, what are we going to do if we get turned around?

Stupidity should be painful. Oh, and as for the name of that boat, "Dignity", maybe you ought to change it to "Dingy."
