After putting up a comment over on Anna's blog about how Rep McKinney is like Marie Antoinette, but more so; I have had this nagging feeling there lurked out there an even better description of this event.
Various ideas have flitted through my mind. So here are the runner-ups.
1. Cynthia McKinney is one of those maloderous princesses that kings wall up in towers.
2. When kingdoms sign treaties there is clause saying if Princess McKinney is offered as the princess for marriage to seal the treaty, it is grounds for war.
3. Later on McKinney grew up to be the wicked step-mother that bedeviled Cinderella.
4. Princess McKinney's suitors, after one day in her company, pooled their gold and jewels together and hired the dragon to kidnap her. One day later the dragon came back and killed all the suitors before committing suicide.
Then the best example of 'I am a princess of the blood and you are a commoner so unhand me!' sprung to mind.
Rep. Cynthia McKinney[Deranged-GA] had a Zsa Zsa Gabor moment when she attacked that police officer in the Capitol.
