McKinney endorses Winograd; An endorsement she may not want

Former Congressman and 2008 Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney has endorsed Marcy Winograd in today's special election in California's 36th congressional district. Before she celebrates this, Winograd may want to consider other McKinney endorsements. McKinney has previously expressed support for Muammar Qaddafi, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Robert Mugabe (more here), and Laurent Gbagbo.

In endorsing Winograd, McKinney wrote of the front-runners in the election that

Both Hahn & Bowen have clearly stated for the record that they support Israel at all costs and that they will attack Iran at the slightest provocation.

I must have missed that.

I doubt Winograd minds -- she's pro-binationalism and insinuated that Henry Waxman has dual loyalties (to the US and Israel). McKinney and her are two peas in a pod.

Who won anyway?

Winograd played spoiler, allowing Huey, a self-funded Republican, to edge out Bowen, a liberal Dem. There will be a runoff election between Hahn and Huey because neither got 50%.

Winograd has seemed like a Green running as a Dem, now she has played Nader to Bowen's Gore.

Too bad for Bowen, but at least Winograd is out of the picture.

I think you're insulting Nader by comparing him to Winograd. This woman is an utter disgrace.
