[Cindy]Sheehan: I will beat Speaker Pelosi
The Hill ^ | July 24, 2007 | Jeremy Jacobs

Posted on 07/23/2007 11:40:15 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

If Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refuses to bring articles of impeachment against President Bush to the floor of the House, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan said Monday, Sheehan not only will challenge the Speaker in the next election but also will defeat her.

Discussing President Bush and Vice President Cheney, Sheehan said, “We put them there. We can fire them. 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.

“And not only am I going to run against her, but I will beat her,” Sheehan added.

A spokesman for Pelosi, Nadeam Elshami, said the Speaker and House Democrats are working toward their goals this Congress and would not address Sheehan’s proclamation.

“The Speaker and House Democrats are focused on ending the war in Iraq, holding the Bush administration accountable and delivering a new direction for the American people,” Elshami said.
“Those are the priorities of the Speaker and the Democrats.”

Sheehan seized the anti-war spotlight during her extended protest outside the president’s ranch in Crawford, Texas in 2005, after her 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in Iraq. Speaking at a demonstration at Arlington National Cemetery, Sheehan argued that it is Pelosi’s constitutional obligation to impeach the president.

“The administration has abused our soldiers. They've abused our freedoms,” Sheehan said. “They have killed my son and countless others. And they must be held accountable.

“Impeachment is not a fringe movement. It is mandated in our Constitution. Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table,” Sheehan said.

I'd love see Nancy Pelosi get dumped the way Tom Foley was. It couldn't happen to a more deserving gal. The Left is forming at last, a circular firing squad.

Well then, by all means, if Cindy is going to hold an administraion accountable and give us a new direction, let's vote for her! Because, in all my years, this is the first time I've ever heard anything so profound from a stinkin' politician.

But, can she be classified a candidate for the Senate, before she can be classified a padded cell candidate? Aren't there rules about this?

This’ll be the country’s first large-scale hippy-dippy, openly ant-American campaign. I can’t wait!

She’s running against the Speaker of the House, not the Senate, but otherwise you’re on the mark!

Well Cindy has to get all botoxed up with face surgery and a new smile without wrinkles to the fore-eyes before she can beat Nancy... I heard this stated on The View so it has to be true.

Cindy is no genius and it doesn’t even appear she is smart enough to know when her “15 minutes of fame” is up. I can’t imagine what she is thinking but it will be amusing to watch her act on it.

Wouldn't it be PERFECT if the two fought each other to a stalemate, and someone else wins through the split vote? Man, that would be great!

This will be a big circus. The loyal Dems and those that have dumped Sheehan will tow Pelosi on the party line. Then will have the so called progressives, fringe leftists, and code stinkos supporting Sheehan. It should be interesting.

I hope she follows through with this.
Donate to her campaign, it would be a higher impact donation than directly to the GOP.

Who is bankrolling this moron? We need to follow the money — although the thought of Cindy and Nancy duking it out would be fun.

In terms of competence and grasp of issues, there would not be much difference. The citizens of California almost deserve it. I wish it would come to that.

Since a Republican can’t get elected in Washington, finally the Evergreen State Freepers will have a campaign they can get involved in. Can you just imagine the campaign slogans for Cindy, against Nancy, that Freepers can come up with?

It’s sort of like the amusement that can be found by poking an old caged circus bear with a stick, or standing just out of the reach of a chained junkyard dog. It’s not really something you should do, but you’ll probably do it anyway.
