Political junkies will recall with a giggle the less than distinguished career of Cynthia McKinney, the six-term congressperson from Georgia who was an embarrassment even to far lefties who are usually immune to embarrassment. (In fact, when she returned to the House in 2005 after having been defeated for re-election in the Democratic primary in 2002, the Democratic House leadership refused to restore her committee seniority. She was defeated again in the Democratic primary in 2006.) Among other things, McKinney was a 9/11 truther, and also speculated that the CIA had a role in the killing of rapper Tupac Shakur.
Well now shes Doctor Cynthia McKinney, Ph.D, having completed her Ph.D in leadership and change at Antioch University. Her dissertation is, naturally, on the greatness of Hugo Chavez. Really, Im not making this up. You can look it up! Heres the title and abstract:

A completely understandable choice.After all there was never a shortage of TP at the Chavez compound.
The second sentence of the abstract is so poorly constructed/edited that the review committee should have rejected her dissertation without even reading it.
A PHD in crap......sad
Make that Dr. Cynthia “Don’t you know how I am” McKinney. She hit a Capitol Hill police officer who dared ask for her ID.
This is really going to cost Atlanta a lot of money for street signs.
All the Cynthia Mckinney Blvd signs are going to need replacement withj Dr Cynthia Mckinney Blvd. /s
Who’s her ghost writer?
I’ve seen gnats with higher IQs
Anybody can GET a Phd. Notice I did not say EARN.
All you need is money to pay for it.
Now she can slug anyone who doesn’t call her “Dr.”.
It should get fun out there... :-)
Antioch University. ? LOL.
She should have gotten a degree that says rocket surgery.
Bill Cosby has a doctorate too—his is in Education from UMass. His thesis was on the “Fat Albert” cartoon show (which had nothing to do with Al Gore).
Cynthia McKinney is one of the most intelligent democrats in the country.
“All you need is money to pay for it.”.............
BINGO, BINGO, BINGO, we have a winner. (Good example, just take a look at Chelsa Clinton. She has a degree but was it indeed “earned”. I highly doubt it. Money can buy most anything)
Which brings us to Bill Cosby, Ed.D. He was awarded a laughable doctorate at UMass, which was drooling over the ability to do so for a black man. He ditched his classes and wrote a “dissertation” on his cartoon “Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids.” The paper is locked up — no one can get a laugh by reading it.
She was my Congresswomen, I did not giggle.
Colleges are nothing but participation trophies. I know a “processor” that is illiterate and speaks in ebonics and a rabid black racist. How did that person get a PhD??
I used to think she was crazy... after all the media told us she was a flake.
Yes she’s a leftie, but I heard interviews she did for infowars, and while I don’t agree with her on policy, she’s not crazy. She was actually reporting on Obama disinformation and reporting on our dropping bombs etc
I think the establishment and media decided she was too much of a loose cannon, and collided to paint a picture of her because she wouldn’t go along with the status quo.
