Carol Platt Liebau: Feelin' Punchy?

Feelin' Punchy?

Obviously, Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-Bedlam) was. McKinney punched a Capitol officer in the chest with a cell phone after he asked her to walk through the metal detectors at the Capitol.

Apparently, members of Congress are entitled to bypass the detectors -- but the guard didn't recognize McKinney, and she wasn't wearing the pin that identifies her as a member of Congress, which, this piece from Slate suggests, may be something of a habit with her. Any further comment would just be piling on (not that it wouldn't be fun, it's just too easy!).

In any case, it will be interesting to see how the Democrats respond to one of their own who reacts with such bizarre contempt for the rules and the people charged with safeguarding all of us.
