Democrats Get Out The Muzzle

This from Best of the Web:
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Capitol Police yesterday asked a federal prosecutor to approve an arrest warrant for McKinney, who allegedly struck a cop who approached her after she violated Capitol security procedures. The Hill reports that "some Democrats are trying to distance themselves from her":
"There's been a lot of eye-rolling," said an aide to a moderate Democrat who spoke on condition of anonymity. "The national attention it's been getting has been unfortunate. It's becoming a distraction."
A Democratic strategist concurred. "This isn't the view of Democrats that we want to project in the tough races,one of victims and race-baiting," the strategist said.
The Hill also reports that "She [McKinney] and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) no longer speak." Now if only we could get some of their colleagues to shut up!

And on a side note, I haven't and don't plan on seeing Basic Instinct 2 because while Sharon Stone was hot about 10 or 12 years ago...now she's just getting old, and that's borderline nasty. On top of that I have heard that the critics tore this movie apart. However forget that tid-bit and the fact that on Rotten Tomatoes it got a 6% (where as Ice Age 2 got a high 62%, and it really was good)...It's Bush's and the Neocon Conservative's fault.
"Anything that is erotic has been banned in the United States," said the Dutch native. "Look at the people at the top (of the government). We are living under a government that is constantly hammering out Christian values. And Christianity and sex have never been good friends."

Face it...Your movie SUCKED. Here are some reviews:
"For many people, the only reason to see Basic Instinct 2 is to find out if Stone uncrosses her legs again. She doesnÂ’t."

"Praising her [Stone] for flaunting herself is like applauding George Foreman for climbing into another ring or TV commercial whenever someone holds out a paycheck."

"An utterly hilarious piece of camp trash that elicited more laughs from me than 'She's the Man,' 'Larry the Cable Guy' and 'Date Movie' combined."
