Female Trouble

Libertarian commentator Neal Boortz on Nealz Nuze says he predicted that McKinney would make race a central issue in the incident. "Race is pretty much all that Cynthia McKinney has had going for her for years. Race is why she is in the House of Representatives. Race is always at the center of McKinney's life," Boortz claims.

At Crime, Guns, and Videotape, a "conservative oasis with a libertarian twist," Paul Huebl echoes the sentiment that McKinney is color struck but adds that he disagrees with blanket searches at government buildings. "I have to take sides here with McKinney. She should not be subjected to this kind of humiliation. Neither should any other American," he argues.

McKinney shares a "Knuckle head of the Day" award on The Florida Masochist. Zontar on the D.C. insider blog Wonkette jokes, "This just in: Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney reportedly has taken two tourists hostages, vowing that 'those coppers will never take me alive!' "

Hold the phone: Supermodel Naomi Campbell was arrested in New York for allegedly hurling a mobile telephone at an assistant. Campbell has faced similar allegations of violence in the past. Her representative claims the charge is retaliation for Campbell firing an employee.

Posters on The Cooler remind us that Campbell's employees should anticipate catching a left hook once in a while. We Love Celebs expresses a similar sentiment. "We're wondering how much money Naomi has spent paying off assistants she's abused … damn," they add. "What is this, like the third or fourth chick (we assume this one's a girl, too) she's gone ballistic on?" Jossip asks.
