Sheehan Threatens And Feinstein Caves

I guess she figures crazy times call for crazy candidates.

From NBC11.com:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (L) greets U.S activist Cindy Sheehan as he arrives at the meeting with World Social Forum Organizations in Caracas, Venezuela January 27, 2006.

Cindy Sheehan Threatens To Run Against Feinstein

Sheehan Says She'll Run Unless Feinstein Filibusters Alito Nomination

January 27, 2006

CARACAS, Venezuela — According to a press release issued Friday, Cindy Sheehan has decided to run against California Senator Diane Feinstein if Feinstein does not filibuster the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Samuel Alito.

Sheehan made that announcement from Venezuela where she is attending the World Social Forum.

Sheehan's son Casey died in Iraq in 2004 and she has since become an outspoken protester of the war.

Sheehan is quoted to have said, "I'm appalled that Diane Feinstein wouldn't recognize how dangerous Alito's nomination is to upholding the values of our constitution. and restricting the usurpation of presidential powers, for which I've already paid the ultimate price."

Sheehan became well known across the United States when she stood vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Crawford last summer. She demanded to speak with the president about the cost of the war in Iraq.

Sheehan returns to the United States on Monday. She will travel to Washington, DC on Tuesday to participate in an alternative State of the Union event.

One has to wonder why Mother Sheehan would decide this on the basis or Feinstein's Alito vote. Cindy has already called the Senator from California and all of the rest of the Congress hypocritical murderers any number of times.

Such as here:

Every member of Bush’s executive branch (past and present) and e very member of Congress who voted to give George the authority to invade Iraq have innocent blood on their hands. For the next State of the Union address, maybe the hypocrites in Congress should shamefacedly display blood-soaked hands, instead of proudly wriggling fingers stained with ink to symbolize sham Iraqi elections.

And here:

Every person who has been killed since the sham [2004] elections–that is innocent blood on the hands of Congress.

Not voting for a futile filibuster is worse than causing the death of so many thousand innocent Iraqis?


We laughed, but it worked. Ms. Feinstein just issued this pronouncement, which reneges on all of her previous promises:

Senator Feinstein to Vote No on Cloture for the Nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court

January 27, 2006

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today announced that she will vote no on cloture regarding the nomination of Judge Samuel A. Alito, Jr. to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.

“Based on a very long and thoughtful analysis of the record and transcript, which I tried to indicate in my floor statement yesterday, I’ve decided that I will vote no on cloture.”

Which is really too bad. I would have loved to have seen Mother Sheehan run against her. Maybe she still will. Here's hoping.

Anyway, it's now official. The Democrat Party is certifiably insane.
