Only weeks after "resigning" as the "face of the peace movement," Cindy Sheehan now says she will run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her San Francisco House seat - UNLESS Pelosi introduces Articles of Impeachment against President Bush within the next two weeks. Angela K. Brown reports for the Associated Press:
Sheehan said she will run against the San Francisco Democrat in 2008 as an independent if Pelosi does not seek by July 23 to impeach Bush. That's when Sheehan and her supporters are to arrive in Washington, D.C., after a 13-day caravan and walking tour starting next week from the group's war protest site near Bush's Crawford ranch.
"Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership," Sheehan told The Associated Press. "We hired them to bring an end to the war. I'm not too far from San Francisco, so it wouldn't be too big of a move for me. I would give her a run for her money."
The full report is at the link above. Many of us suspected our dear "Mother Sheehan" couldn't bear to be out of the spotlight very long. I doubt even the moonbats in Frisco would throw out a sitting Speaker as a protest, but I long ago ceased ruling out any foolish actions by their ilk.
Perhaps one day the Democrats will regret welcoming the anti-American radical left into their party with open arms.
