Other than some mild tweaking of people in our more rambunctious comments threads, I have really tried to behave lately.
Until now. Tim sends me this story:
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan is set to challenge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her California congressional seat.
After filing papers for the seat in April, Sheehan told The National Press Club Thursday she’s going through with her campaign plans.
Sheehan, a California resident without a party affiliation, accused Pelosi of “signing blank checks” funding the Bush administration and being their “accomplice.”
Sheehan last year cited a feeling of betrayal from the Democratic leadership for not ending the war in Iraq.
“I’m doing it to encourage other people to run against Congress members who aren’t doing their jobs, who are beholden to special interests,” Sheehan said in 2007.
I really, really want to mock this, but she kind of has a god damned point.
