See ya CyMc-Try to stay gone this time.

U.S. House - District 4 - Dem Runoff
Georgia 167 of 167 Precincts Reporting - 100.00%

Name Votes Pct

Johnson , Hank 41,178 58.82

McKinney , Cynthia (i) 28,832 41.18

**UPDATE** In what has to be one of the strangest "concession" spectacles ever Cynthia McKinney managed to hold the local TV feeds hostage for over half an hour, gather and name all her supporters, play and sing holler Pink's Dear Mr. President after telling all of us to pay special attention to the words, blame the press for maiming her mother and a staffer, tell us she would not put up with any more stolen elections (look at the numbers above. I'll assume she didn't mean that election), list various countries that were more like what she envisions for the United States (Bolivia, Venezuela, Cuba, etc), walk us through the perceived ills of both Presidents Bush, play politics with the deaths of a few American heroes, make the obligatory Haliburton reference, level a bizarre sounding threat to take back the country, and toward the end wish her replacement in Congress well. I guess she forgot her opponents name or maybe she didn't want to prejudge November.

I'm sure I'm missing some of this and hopefully there will be video upcoming, but I really doubt anyone will have a full video report of the whole thing. It also appears that her people attacked a local news crew. All in a night's work for the former 4th district Congresswoman.

CyMc hits the highlights
