Sorry, but I had to chuckle when I heard that Rep. Sue Myrick canceled her 9/11 appearances yesterday. The perennially frightened-by-something-or-other congresswoman said she had been warned by “intelligence sources” that her name was on a published article listing people the Iranian government says are working against it. Myrick said the article in question implied that the listed persons should be harmed, so she canceled her four planned public appearances Sunday in Gaston County and Charlotte.

The sad thing is that Sue no doubt believes she’s that important. The sadder thing is that she no doubt finds that satisfying. After all, as she was quoted in today’s Observer story by Tim Funk: "'I live with threats every day; that's my life,' said Myrick, who said she even wore a bullet-proof vest during her time as Charlotte mayor." That's her life?! A bullet-proof vest as mayor of Charlotte?! Sounds like it’s way past time for Sue to reconsider her now 16-year-old pledge to limit her time in Congress to four years.
Go read the whole sad story at Creative Loafing. Poor Sue Myrick really does need help.
