Just 5 days before the election, at 3a.m. on October 30th, all of the front windows of the Cindy Sheehan for Congress campaign offices were shattered. Although staffers had been in the office less than an hour earlier, no one was in the building at the time of the incident. No one was hurt and there were no witnesses. Cindy Sheehan is a candidate for Congress in California's 8th Congressional District race against incumbent Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Here, Cindy has spent countless hours calling attention to how big of a devil Bush is. She carried the anti-war message to the media and beyond, with Pelosi and other prominent Democrats benefiting greatly from it - most notably in the 2006 mid-terms. But now that she has decided to take on the House Speaker in an election, she is feeling the wrath of the peaceful, freedom loving Democratic machine.
I almost wish Cindy would beat Pelosi. The Dems would be upset their little darling Nancy is gone and would no doubt be looking for revenge. And the GOP, well.........what is there to say?
But more than anything else, I would love to see her win it for the entertainment factor. Look, the seat is held by a leftist, it stays in the leftist hands ( nothing really lost). But instead of an incompetent angry shill, we get some solid leftist tirades from someone far more entertaining than Nancy.
The real reward is Pelosi being gone, but hey.......
