See Cindy run. Run, Cindy, run.
Posted by: Bryan Pick on Sunday, July 08, 2007

"I am going to take whatever I have left, and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children, and try to regain some of what I have lost."
— Cindy Sheehan, May 28, 2007
She tired of that quickly:
Six weeks after announcing her departure from the peace movement, Cindy Sheehan said Sunday that she plans to run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unless she introduces articles of impeachment against President Bush in the next two weeks.
When she was considering running against Senator Dianne Feinstein last year, she didn't think she had a chance, but Sheehan says she would give Pelosi "a run for her money." The 8th District has given Pelosi about 80% of the vote in the last few elections, so I doubt the Speaker's shaking in her pumps, but Cindy might have convinced herself that thorough dissatisfaction with the Congressional Democrats (below 30% job approval for the last month) could translate into a victory in the Democratic People's Republic of San Francisco.

Go for it, Cindy. For those thirty-something days, the anti-war movement just wasn't the same.

What kind of this situation must we have in that district, if Nancy Pelosi is the more reasonable of the two people vying for the office?

Compared to now ... how will you be able to tell the difference.

But if she wins, (a) Pelosi would be out and (b) she would be a freshman legislator and (c) with her current skills, she would be totally ineffective. (Oh all right, if some of those elected whatever-they-are can get a bill submitted, maybe Cindy could get something into the hopper, too.)

I can live with that.

I must go and donate to her right now.

This is lunacy that must be nurtured and cultivated, much like a rare flower.

Cindy will be the perfect gal to help Mr. Biden cut through all the “unfiltered information that may [have bin] deliberately miss-edited”

The shrill, unending shrieking voice of Cindy would be the first sign...

She’d ignore what little decorum still exists, and turn every moment into a shouting match as she spent her day harping about bush lied people died"...

You thought some of those Senators got shrill during the Amnesty bill? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet...

Even funnier.....if Cindy wins, by the time she goes into office, she won’t be able to impeach Bush anyway.

I never thought I could imagine a Congress-person more clueless than McKinney. Now I have!

You think that will stop her?

She’s a moron, plain and simple, and her first day she’ll stand up and shreak about impeaching Bush... And Cheney... And Blair...

And someone will tell her that Bush and Cheny left office the day before, and Blair isn’t a US elected official, and her head will explode with rage at someone telling her that she can’t impeach Bush. Her rage towards her party for refusing to impeach someone not in office would cause her to burst into flame...


I have to go donate to her political fund... Excuse me...

How funny you should all be against Sheehan. I suppose you only like polished career politicians? You-all just want another Republicrat, marketed by Nabisco and paid for by Haliburton? You should all run instead of sitting on the side-lines.

But do you think you could do it without being corrupt cronies? Or would you all prefer just another paycheck from the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex.

PS: Eisenhower originally coined this as written, "Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex"
Emphasis on Congressional...
