A Preemptive Endorsement of Cindy Sheehan

Posted by libhom Sunday, July 08, 2007

While preemptive wars are a bad thing, there is nothing wrong with making a political endorsement in advance.

That is exactly what I intend to do. I am endorsing Cindy Sheehan if she decides to go ahead with a primary challenge she is considering against Nancy Pelosi.

Pelosi has been acting like an unpaid political advertisement for the Green Party for some time now. She resorted to making racists comments in an attack on Hugo Chavez. The attack itself was desperate pandering to an unelected and unAmerican Bush regime.

Pelosi has been more interested in short-term political laziness than her Oath of Office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America by insisting that impeachment is “off the table.” She has shown her contempt for our troops and the results of the 2006 elections by insisting that ending funding for the Iraq War is “off the table.”

Pelosi regularly insults the intelligence of Democrats by saying that she is opposing the war while doing everything in her power to keep funding it. She even lies and says that it takes 60 votes in the Senate to stop the war. Here are two ways to stop the war that don't involve 60 senate votes;

1) A simple majority of House members vote against war funding appropriations.
2) 41 Senators filibuster war funding.

Either, by itself, is sufficient to stop the war.

Pelosi has a nasty history in San Francisco politics. She originally got her house seat by queer-baiting openly gay frontrunner, Supervisor Harry Britt. She also would not have won without the support of the now-defunct Waxman/Berman/Feinstein political machine, which was determined to keep any openly gay or lesbian people elected to congress from California.

It's too bad Harry Reid is not up for reelection in 2008. He deserves a primary challenge at least as much as Pelosi does.

  2. I think sadly this is Sheehan making herself even more irrelevant by forcing herself into the limelight where she has no business being. She only has one issue, but if her being in the race actually helps move Democrats in a more progressive direction, I'll be pleased.

  4. This is a clever move and shows she now understands the brute nature of politics. Pelosi would face a reduced vote or even lose, Cindy is damn right, name people should do the same to other dems to force impeachment which will also have the effect of getting withdrawal. It's gloves off time, jam that spine back into the dems.

    It's about time somebody launched a primary challenge against Pelosi, and the rest of the Democratic Party leadership in Congress deserve primary challenges of their own.

    Sheehan is ahead of her time on this one. A few months from now, primary challenges like hers will be commonplace.
