I agree with you, the judge won't be one bit better for the country than McKinney, but at least she won't have seniority to sit on important committees, she won't support terrorists, and she's not stupid. I'll settle.

Well, she does say she's not for reparations, so that's a significant policy difference from McKinney. Plus she's not a sell-out to our Islamic enemies, which is even bigger.

When/If Majette wins, she will be somewhat beholden to the Republican crossovers who gave her the win.

Rats have no loyalty to anything except other Rats. What will happen, is happening, is Rats will blame Republicans for unseating McKinney. Think Rats will blame Jews for it? No way...there has to be a fall guy to keep the Rat party unified and white conservative Christians have already been selected for that role.

I keep asking myself, why the hell he didn't remain in Iraq with his "oppressed Muslim" brothers? I cheered when I found out he was over there, and was saddened when he returned... the DOD should seize his assetts as I believe he also is a terrorist sympathizer and contributor to Jihad!

Both Farrakhan and McKinney have always struck me as mildly retarded. I mean it! Both seem to live in a world that has little if anything to do with the real one that the rest of us live in. Or mentally unstable. Take your pick. I hope Majette bounces McKinney on August 20th in the GA Primary. Gawd, it would give the phrase "just deserts" a whole new meaning.....

That's your job Mr. Lied. It seems to be your only job as far as I can tell. Oooga boooga keep an eye on those Jews.

FOX News ran this story tonight :
Ruling near on House race

By Alvin Benn
Montgomery Advertiser
Aug. 15, 2002

A decision is expected soon in the Democratic Party’s House District 67 election with lawyers for both sides in the disputed case predicting victory.

Former Selma Councilman Yusuf Abdus-Salaam led challenger LaTosha Brown by 138 votes following the June 25 runoff election. Brown’s lawyers said the margin of victory was created by illegal Republican crossover votes.

“We have overwhelmingly won our case,” Faya Toure, who represents Brown, said Wednesday. “We have put into the record what we expected to prove if those subpoenaed had showed up to testify.”

John Kelly, who represents Salaam, was just as convinced that Brown’s lawyers failed to prove their case. He said too few Republicans took the stand to testify that they voted in the runoff election, which is prohibited by the Democratic Party.

“They only called a handful of voters and only a handful of them showed up to take the stand,” Kelly said Wednesday, referring to Brown’s side of the dispute. “As far as we’re concerned, they didn’t prove a thing.”

Brown, who led in the nine-candidate primary election by 1,200 votes, must prove to the Democratic Party Executive Committee hearing the case that illegal Republican votes, along with other factors, paved the way for Salaam’s victory.

Montgomery lawyer Terry Davis, who presided over the hearing for more than a week, said that a decision will be made by next Monday. He said it could come as soon as Friday.

“We’ll get together on Thursday and Friday and go over the evidence gathered in this case,” Davis said. “Our hope is to make a decision as quickly as possible.”

The loser in the dispute has the option of taking the case to the full Democratic Party or into Dallas County Circuit Court. The eventual nominee will face Republican Mark Story in the November general election.

Toure said more witnesses were not questioned during the hearing because they did not answer court orders issued for them to appear before Davis’ committee. She said efforts will be made to make them explain themselves.

“At least 70 people did not show up after getting subpoenas,” Toure said. “Every last one of them would have admitted they crossed over and voted for Salaam. We fully intend to ask the district attorney to prosecute those who failed to show up for the hearing without a good reason.”

Of the dozen Republicans who did testify at the hearing, 11 of them admitted they voted in the GOP primary on June 4 and then crossed over to vote for Salaam in the June 25 runoff election.

Kelly said Salaam and his supporters did not actively solicit Republicans to vote for him in the runoff. He said disallowing those ballots cast by the Republicans would, in effect, infringe on their right to vote.

“Even if they can prove large numbers of Republicans crossed over, their own expert witness failed to show there were enough to take the nomination away from Mr. Salaam,” Kelly said.

Yusuf Abdus-Salaam is, of course, a Muslim.

I'm certain that if the Scarecrow had met these people, he'd have left Oz and returned to the cornfield satisfied that there were people far needier than himself!

Hopefully that dirtbag will cost her the election. I don't think people are real forgiving of ANY Muslims right now.

What a bizzare post showing your twisted inner theatre. Christians being unfairly blamed when it's really the fault of them Joooooos! The centuries old accusation.

Well, there comes another crazy a$$ed muslum to take up for old Cyndy. Sounds like she's just gettin a bad rap!

It don't much matter who wins, they are both socialists, but it sure is fun to watch the carnage of the enemy, ain't it?

Sent 30 bucks to Majette's camp, just to stir the fire!

Are you kidding?

Her domestic supporters are incapable of reading or even speaking in sentences. Her arab supporters have been well educated but, unfortunately, are not registered to vote.

Maybe Yusuf would turn the House of Representatives into an inferno something like "Mars Attacks." He could be a potential suicide bomber.

I can just see him taking his house seat with explosives wrapped around his a-rab waist. He may even sit close to Little Dick.

It has been pointed out that you never see these two in the same place at the same time. Coincidence? I think not.
