More Whining From Bigots

Much pantspissing and whining in blogosphere this week about the failure to indict.

I speak, of course, of "Captain" Ed Morrisey, who, blogging from his hospital bed, applies his double-digit i.q. to the case of Representative Cynthia McKinney.

First, the story:

A grand jury has declined to indict Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia for allegedly striking a Capitol police officer in March, the federal prosecutor announced Friday.

The decision ends a case against the DeKalb County Democrat that has been rife with political and racial tensions.

"It is right, just and appropriate," McKinney's attorney, William Moffitt, said of the decision, which he learned about from reporters. "I'm ecstatic."

McKinney, arriving Friday night for the Boost Mobile Rock Corps concert at Atlanta's Fox Theatre, entered without responding to reporters's [sic] questions.

The decision comes more than two months after the Washington Superior Court grand jury was first given the case. U.S. Attorney Ken Wainstein called the investigation by his office and Capitol police "extensive and thorough."

"We respect the decision of the grand jury in this difficult matter," Wainstein said in a statement.

Now, the bloated blogger (warning -- link to an idiot):

In the meantime, someone should get a copy of the dictionary to the grand jury and a Toastmasters club membershio [sic] for the US attorney. If someone hits a police officer with a cell phone while he is performing his duties, and witnesses and even the suspect confirms it, how can that not rise to the level of "probable cause"?

How? Let me count the ways: Accident, lack of intent, self-defense, reasonable self-defense.

Poor, stupid dumbfuck. He simply can't understand that the unverified crap he reads on NewsMax and Instacracker and the drivellings of his commenters isn't a substitute for actual evidence. Of course, Special Ed wasn't present at the incident, doesn't know what evidence was presented and doesn't know what the grand jury knew or thought. But that doesn't stop the dumbfuck from suggesting the grand jury was too Negroid to understand the law and the facts: "Race baiting was the only defense McKinney could offer," says the dishonest seaman stain.

Of course, Ed's commenters take the hint and join in the hate parade:

I think James Joyner at OTB hit the nail on the head, reminding us that, "[t]his is the same jury pool that acquitted Marion Berry on two sets of felony charges and then reelected him twice."


And they wonder why we don't treat them with respect.

I doubt "they" wonder that at all.

p.s. to doubleplus dumbfuck James Joyner: Marion Berry is a U.S. Representative from Arkansas, not the former Mayor of D.C. And I won't even bother to point out all the other inaccuracies in the single sentence, "This is the same jury pool that acquitted Marion Berry on two sets of felony charges and then reelected him twice."
