If you can't beat 'em...Join 'em...

Yesterday, Cindy Sheehan said:

"If Nancy Pelosi doesn't do her constitutionally-mandated job by midnight tonight, tomorrow I will announce that I'm going to run against her"

Not surprising, Pelosi did not call for an impeachment so Sheehan has announced that she will challenge Pelosi's bid for reelection next year:

"At the end of this day, Speaker Pelosi has not supported impeachment and has not upheld her oath of office to 'protect and defend' the Constitution...I am committed to challenging a two party system that has kept us in a state of constant warfare for the last 60 years and has become more and more beholden to special interests and has forgotten the faces of the people whom it represents."

What's so nerve racking?

"What makes Sheehan a potentially credible challenger is the fact that, by any reasonable measure, she is more in touch with the true passions of San Francisco's voters than Pelosi. Pelosi is a war critic, but she has never gone to the mat on the issue. San Franciscans, on the other hand, have voted overwhelmingly for immediate withdrawal. Similarly, Pelosi says that impeachment is "off the table," despite the fact that San Franciscans voted by a 3-2 margin last fall in favor of holding the president and vice president to account."

If ever there was a time for the people of California to prove that they aren't entirely off their rockers to the rest of the union...I think this is it
