Cindy Sheehan, the soldier's mother who galvanized the anti-war movement, said Sunday that she plans to seek House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's congressional seat unless she introduces articles of impeachment against President Bush in the next two weeks.Update: In Cindy's Diary (wish I knew the html to make little hearts over the "i"s) at Kos, Sheehan explains her "thought" processes:
I was a life-long Democrat only because the choices were limited. The Democrats are the party of slavery and were the party that started every war in the 20thCentury except the other Bush debacle. The Federal Reserve, permanent federal (and unconstitutional) income taxes, Japanese Concentration Camps and, not one, but two atom bombs dropped on the innocent citizens of Japan were brought to us via the Democrats. Don’t tell me the Democrats are our “Saviors” because I am not buying it especially after they bought and purchased more caskets and more devastating pain when they financed and co-facilitated more of George’s abysmal occupation and they are allowing a melt down of our representative Republic by allowing the evils of the executive branch to continue unrestrained by their silent complicity. Good change has happened during Democratic regimes, but as in the civil rights and union movements, the positive changes occurred because of the people not the politicians.A funny sentence:
If Ms. Pelosi does her Constitutional and moral duty by July 23rd, then I believe some balance will be restored to the universe and my organization, People for Humanity can carry on with our humanitarian projects, if she doesn’t we will carry on anyway with a campaign to run to boot.To boot!
