Politics is Full of Nuts

Besides Ron Paul, the GOP's cashew candidate, the presidential election has another conspiracy nutjob running, cop assaulting Cynthia McKinney.
College Park, Md. ( - Former Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.) said her bid for the White House as a Green Party candidate won't hurt Sen. Barack Obama or Sen. Hillary Clinton's chances for being the first African-American or woman U.S. president, respectively, because U.S. elections have been corrupted.

"Basically, what you are suggesting is by participating in the Democratic process the Green Party is going to become, quote, 'the spoiler,' " McKinney told Cybercast News Service at a rally Tuesday at the University of Maryland. "It is impossible to become a spoiler based on past experience when one examines the past.

"In the 2000 election, 6 million votes were not counted," she said. "They were cast but not counted. It is impossible that George W. Bush won the White House on 537 votes. That was constructed. That was contrived, and the Democratic Party failed to fight for the voters who voted it into the White House. In 2004, 3 million votes were cast but not counted."

Major league walnut, Cynthia is, thinking that the 2000 election was rigged, and that her third party candidacy will have no effect on the election outcome. But then again McKinney is not known for rational thoughts anyway.

Rather than having these nutjobs spread out all over the political spectrum, there needs to be a centralized party for them. Thus I suggest:
