There May Be a Difference

On April 9 I noted that it was possible congresswoman Cynthia McKinney would be be indicted by a grand jury the following week for accosting a police officer. I also admitted to some skepticism. Looks like I was right to be skeptical – the AP tells us that this won’t happen.

Matthew Hoy tells us why.

I suspect that there will be price to pay – at the poles by politicians of both stripes – for this non-act*. The calculation that voters simply don’t care, or that a week is forever in politics, or that all politics is local (and this is definitely not a local issue) is off the mark. After all, this time it is their ox getting gored. The unfairness feels personal every time it happens.
