5690: Party Time.
Partygoers in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney is running for president as the Green Party candidate. McKinney’s last public appearance involved her altercation with a U.S. Capitol Police officer who failed to recognize her at a security checkpoint. Now the rest of America will likely fail to recognize McKinney.
• The two Indonesian housekeepers held as virtual slaves by a Long Island millionaire couple were awarded nearly $1 million by a federal judge. The judge ruled the women deserved nearly double their unpaid wages because of the physical abuse they suffered. Talk about reparations.
• Bernie Mac was heckled while performing during a fundraiser for Barack Obama. No, the heckler was not Jesse Jackson.
