How much do I love the idea of Cindy Sheehan running against Nancy Pelosi?

Very, very, very much. From the AP:
Sheehan said she will run against theDemocrat in 2008 as an independent if Pelosi does not seek by July 23 to impeach Bush. That's when Sheehan and her supporters are to arrive in ., after a 13-day caravan and walking tour starting next week from the group's war protest site near Bush's Crawford ranch.
"Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership," Sheehan told The Associated Press. "We hired them to bring an end to the war. I'm not too far from San Francisco, so it wouldn't be too big of a move for me. I would give her a run for her money."
Few people out here realize it, but the locals in San Francisco are not all that wild about Nancy Pelosi. They think she's too conservative (hard to believe, I know), and that she's sold out her hard left constituency so the Democrats won't look so wacky to people in red state America. The problem is that Pelosi knows that if the public actually knew how radical she is, the Democrats wouldn't stand a chance. So Pelosi has to hide it. And that makes the lefties very mad. There is no compromising with those people.
So I'm very excited about a big left wing slugfest out in San Fran next year. Can you imagine all the free media Cindy Sheehan will get in the Bay area if she takes on Pelosi? She's got the name recognition, and she's clearly nutty enough to seek public office. So she just might do it.
Run, Cindy, run!
