More Good News:

This just in from CNN:

In Georgia, state Rep. Billy McKinney, the father of controversial U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney, lost in the Democratic runoff to keep the state House seat he has held for three decades. His daughter was ousted in a Democratic primary three weeks ago by former state judge Denise Majette.

Somehow CNN is too polite to mention his anti-Semitic rant after his daughter lost, blaming it all on “the Jews. That’s J-E-W-S.”

You lose, Billy. That’s L-O-S-E.
