Truth & Consequences

With a handful of Republicans having gone down in flames for little more than saying the wrong thing or of simply being accused of wrongdoing, it's nice to know there is at least a pretense of consequences for Cynthia McKinney's hitting a Capitol Hill policeman.

The officer involved in the incident, Paul McKenna, testified before the grand jury within the past week, the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call said Tuesday. McKenna has said he asked McKinney three times to stop. After she refused, the officer reportedly placed a hand on her and she hit him.

No one should be above the law, and last I heard, it's still against the law to strike a policeman.
