Cynthia McKinney’s everywhere!

17 Stories (I think all from yesterday, really) that mention and/or praise Cynthia McKinney. And, these are just a sampling.

In no particular order…

1. First, the most amusing blog hit on the list. It is a recommended list of what a good protester needs in her back-pack: here.

(The first thing on this list is an “‘Elect Cynthia McKinney’ sign printed on the back of a recycled ‘Elect John Kerry’ sign.)

2. Polling numbers (at 2% and 3%), brought to you by Green Party Watch: here.

3. For our greenie-Greens and our environmentalist colleagues: Cynthia praised for being the best on off-shore drilling (opposing it the strongest): An About dot Com piece of all things: here.

4. Post from a liberal with a difference-of-opinion on who to vote for, but a funny post none the less. (And, you know, doesn’t matter if they say something good or bad, as long as they get you in the paper and spell your name right!): here.

5. A Cynthia McKinney mention on the blog which had been set up as a Robert F Kennedy for President blog:here.

6. Had to mention all the many posts of Cynthia’s Hijacking America message. The winner for best title for one of these posts goes to the Uniffors Blog: “Former Democrat unmasks her former party”. By-line created over at the blog Uniffors – Life in Gloria’s Enchanted Kingdom.

7. A quasi-endorsement and profound thoughts over at the blog “Diary of a Bad Housewife”. The author seems to be one of the disappointed Hillary supporters, deciding what to do next. With the inspiration of Dolores Huerta–her speech about Hillary and her history of struggle–the author will stick to politics and consider support for Cynthia McKinney…

Post title: Lessons From Chavez and Huerta

I am familiar with Obama’s voting record and as I’ve said before, it is very similar to Hillary’s. While it is possible that he may turn out to be the best choice, I did use my anger constructively and I began to look outside the two major parties. I am currently researching Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party’s presidential candidate who also looks like a good candidate. I’m not ready to say how I’ll vote yet, but I am ready to move on, re-group, and move forward.

8. From the blog Upset The Setup. Blog post “Off the Table”, a suggestion on various, effective ways to vote…with the first choice being for Cynthia McKinney: here.

9. The Blog, Out-Loud Brainwaves gets the award for best quote of the week. In the post “‘Voila! Problem Solved’: McCain Advisor Defines EVERYONE As Insured”, the author writes:

On the political spectrum, I fall somewhere between Cynthia McKinney and Che Guevara.

10. The blog search also showed Cynthia McKinney coming up in more than one Forum post. Want a place to talk about Cynthia’s right to be in the debates? Look at this message board: here.

11. The Chronicle of Higher Education has a great piece that mentions Cynthia: here The piece reflects on the college students’ participation in Denver – what the students learned from observing inside and/or outside the Democratic National Convention. Includes a Cynthia McKinney for President mention.

12. I was confused about if Cynthia was at the Nader-sponsored Open the Debates Rally in Denver. From what I gather, Cynthia sent along a taped message. Pretty cool that the alternative candidates can support each other. Cynthia was listed in a few pieces of coverage of the Open the Debates Rally. One good one is here. Protest Rally for Nader Draws 4,000/ Open the Debates. By Mary Silver. Epoch Times Staff Aug 28, 2008.

13. Reflections on demonstrators in the streets of Denver, how they were treated by police, and various issues. A brief mention of Cynthia McKinney, which I like, because it puts her at the scene of the people who matter to us – people demanding peace and marching in the streets. Full story here. It is from the blog “Undernews” by Sam Smith. I am confused about if Sam Smith or someone else wrote the story. But, it is a well-done story.

14. From Radical Blogs The piece is: “Marching Through Denver: Fighting for an End to War, Torture, and Government RepressionDetials of March to Pepsi Center on Sunday, Aug 24th” The title says it all. Another Cynthia McKinney mention. And, in really good company:

…Ron Kovic, Vietnam Veteran and author “Born on the fourth of July,” Cindy Sheehan, Peace Mom and Congressional Candidate in San Francisco, Cynthia Mckinney, Green Party Presidential Candidate, Fred Hampton, Jr., son of the former Black Panther, Larry Holmes, Troops Out Now Coalition, and were roused by the music of Dead Prez.

15. From a blog “Election 2008”, a great line about Cynthia’s past performance.

The Rise of Third Parties

Libertarians, the Green Party, and famous Independents are the largest parties outside of the major two. This is is gaining increased media attention for theses candidates. Bob Barr, the Libertarian candidate, has appeared on The Colbert Report. Also via comedian Jillette Penn of Penn and Teller on Glenn Beck Headline News(Dec 16). Cynthia McKinney, the Green Party Candidate, Is mostly found in congressional record, where she sponsored the MLK Records Act, and The Tupac Shakur Records Act.

16. People are still talking about that “historical moment” Rosa Clemente pointed out at the Green Party convention. A very fun, feminist blog points out the historic nature of a woman-of-color ticket: Think Girl. The blog heading is: “Feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression.” – bell hooks

17. About the rally: here.
