Flight Psycho Is Confirmed Moonbat

As should surprise no one, the woman who went bonkers on a flight from London to Washington the other day, forcing it to make an emergency landing in Boston under escort by military jets, is a moonbat.

On board the flight, self-described peace activist Catherine Mayo made scary references to al Qaeda, asked if it was a "training flight for United Flight 93," produced a bag full of forbidden items including a Phillips-head screwdriver, and after pulling her pants down, urinated in the aisle in full view of other passengers. She was finally subdued and handcuffed.

Although this behavior is a little over the top even for a progressive, her political views aren't much wackier than the New York Times' editorial page. Mayo splits her time between Vermont and Pakistan, where she is a journalist for the Daily Times. Below are samples of her published writings.

From State of the Union, 2003:

I think the US people have forgotten that President Bush didn't win the election. He only got the job because they couldn't decide what to do with pregnant chads in Florida. [...] So when President Bush announced that God was telling him to bomb Iraq, my stomach turned over. He has no right to include God in his State of the Union address. [...] The government of the US has changed in the last few months, and the citizens of the country haven't noticed yet. It has become an oligarchy. Its leaders rule with a wave of their hands, laughing into their sleeves. They can create any truth they want, and then create proof that it is real. [...] When President Bush says that he is God, the ordinary people go out and shovel the snow out of their driveways. There is nothing else they can do.

From Value of Dissent:

The folksongs of the 1960s will never be written again because of President George Bush. He has hampered the liberties of my country in the name of September 11. Songs now can only talk of patriotism, they cannot mention peace.

From Freedom after 9/11:

Like their troops, Americans are plagued by questions about why they are in Iraq. No WMD, no Al Qaeda, no regime change. But they can't admit this to themselves. Never in history has the US made such a bad mistake. [..] Americans do not have a sense of humour anymore. This is the most telling characteristic now, the biggest cultural difference between them and the rest of the world. They can't laugh at a joke, they don't even understand it.

So maybe the scene on the airplane was a joke? More likely, Mayo's entire existence is a joke — a bad joke that the Left keeps telling.

Let's hope they can find a mental hospital willing to hold the Mayo.

"Flakes on a Plane", "Moonbats on a Plane", you name it, there's a sequel to Samuel Jackson's new movie waiting here. Of course it would be based on the book, "Catherine's Plane has Two Left Wings".

If you expose mayo to fresh clean air for a long period of time, it becomes toxic to humans.

I suspected she was a moonbat as soon as I heard she was from Vermont, but I knew you'd have the inside scoop. Bravo, Van Helsing.

What is it with all the left wing whackos lately? I know they are always out there, but lately they seem to have become much more unhinged. Kinda scary--better make a quick run to the ammo store......checklist: 9 mm, 7mm mag, 12 gauge.

If you want to package fifth columny as something tasty, then a little Mayo goes a long way!
