Permalink “Peace Mom” leads Freedom Fighters in War on Pelosi

Cindy Sheehan’s announcement that she will challenge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi if she doesn’t introduce articles of impeachment against President Bush raises a serious question: Who is Cindy’s base?

We know the Universe chose her to ignite the anti-war movement – or so she told us – but most of the universe can’t vote for Sheehan. Well, I may be wrong about that. She would be running in the Bay Area, where aliens have free rein to healthcare, in-state tuition, welfare and voting booths.

Aside from aliens, Sheehan would draw from a wide range of people: felons, drug addicts, and anybody with more body piercings than Frankenstein’s wife. The one group she may not have in the bag is the anti-war group. I know this sounds outrageous, but the “Peace Mom’ has some trouble with the folks who put her on the map.

She has done a heck of a job alienating, the radical-left machine that helped pay for anti-Bush campaign commercials in 2004 starring a weeping Sheehan. When Sheehan “retired” some six weeks ago, she reamed Moveon like she was a well-seasoned proctologist. I suppose they won’t be throwing in for her campaign.

Then there are her old homeboys, such as James Morris. Morris is the fellow whom Sheehan accused of writing an “anti-Semitic” email to Ted Koppel in her name. Here is the controversial text:

Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full well that my son, my family, this nation and this world were betrayed by George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agendas after 9/11. We were told that we were attacked on 9/11 because the terrorists hate our freedoms and democracy … not for the real reason, because the Arab Muslims who attacked us hate our middle-eastern foreign policy.

Many attacked Sheehan as anti-Semitic, but she swore she had nothing to do with the email. Sweetness & Light nailed Sheehan for going wobbly on her anti-Zionist credentials. But Morris warned Sheehan in a letter, which he shared with me, that she may not have the right stuff for his liking:


In running against Nancy Pelosi I can assume that you wouldn’t dare resist the pro-Israel influence coming from AIPAC though (see the first page and the last twenty pages or so via ). Look how you caved so cowardly when the Zionist pressure came your way when you did what you did to me nationally on the Fox News Channel as well (see as I hope you pre-order a copy of the soon to be released Mearsheimer/Walt book by searching under ‘Mearsheimer’ at, and you might want to buy a copy of James Petras’ book on the power/influence of the pro-Israel lobby via as well - see for his latest article as Christopher Hedges’ ‘A Declaration of Independence from Israel’ article can be found via as it is a must read as well):

If Sheehan weren’t a lapsed Catholic, she might want to go in for a little penance – or better yet, an exorcism.

I am well aware that many leftoids consider Sheehan their imam, a leader and teacher of all things pure. Melanie Morgan and I wrote in “American Mourning” about the cultish behavior of some who traveled in 2005 to see Sheehan in Crawford, Texas. One guy fasted and cleared his mind of all thoughts but Sheehan. This mind-clearing exercise was, of course, not very difficult given the wide-open spaces inside his cranium.

Cindy blogged today that she is already getting a lot of support, which is believable given the numbers of folks who believe Sept. 11 was an inside job and that our great U.S. military has lost in Iraq.

The feedback I have been receiving since then has been about three to one positive and supportive. Some people have offered to quit their jobs to move to California’s 8th to help my possible campaign. People are lining up to donate and help and I am again very grateful and touched beyond belief by the generosity and energy of my fellow Americans.

Still, Sheehan faces other hurdles in her bid to oust Gen. Pelosi. No. 1: residency. When Sheehan retired as the face of the peace movement mere weeks ago, she said she was going “home” to spend time with her family. Her ex-husband and son live in Vacaville, but Cowtown isn’t the place from which to launch a San Francisco campaign. Sheehan’s daughters live in Dixon, where she now calls home. Dixon isn’t much friendlier to dictator-coddling types, but I understand Sheehan keeps a low profile there.

The residency thing could be tricky. But I have an idea: Ed Jew. He is the San Francisco supervisor who is under investigation for living outside of the district that he’s supposed to represent. The only problem Sheehan may have with him is his last name. Still, his pad would be a great safe house for Sheehan as she wages jihad on Pelosi. The Peace Mom may even want to hire Jew as a consultant for residency requirements.

The left-wingers of the left coast may face some interesting moral decisions if Sheehan takes on Pelosi. Consider the Catholic vote. Traditional Catholics, like me, would shy away from either candidate like a vampire from garlic. But we’re talking San Francisco. Sheehan’s Catholic credentials include being fired as a youth minister because she was teaching untraditional issues to her charges and she had a penchant for calling the pastor and some bishops “liars.” Both Sheehan and Pelosi are pro-abortion rights candidates, so that should set well with leftist so-called Catholics.

I think it is fair to say that the Catholic vote is up for grabs.

Both women have done a fine job attacking President Bush. This is a top concern of voters in the 8th Congressional District of California, which takes in most of San Francisco. This is the city where “leaders” tried to force the Blue Angels from performing flyovers, the ROTC are considered Mephistopheles’ children, and military men and women must avoid wearing their uniforms in case they are mistaken as members of the Village People.

Bush won only 14 percent of the vote in the 8th district during the last election. When Sheehan calls the president a “bastard,” and the “world’s No. 1 terrorist,” the district cheers her on. Pelosi works hard at demeaning the presidency, but Sheehan has the edge here.

Because San Francisco is generally anti-military, both candidates have instant credibility. Sheehan says now she wants instant pullout from Iraq, but she admitted during a rally last year in San Francisco that the white-flag-of-surrender option would take time. No “troops out now.” Sheehan will score points with the hate-America crowd because she is actually on record (and photographs) loving on Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.

Important safety tip to Pelosi’s camp: Chavez loves Sheehan and will likely share the billions he has stolen from his countrymen to pad her war chest. (I know this is illegal, but rules don’t apply to the Peace Mom).

Sheehan may have the upper hand when it comes to getting the “out there” vote. This includes non-traditional Democrats. Sheehan has already written off mainstream Democrats, if there is such a thing. This is a brilliant political move with Congress’ ratings lower than an ant’s sewer system. More of her blog:

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 20th Century 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.

Last but not least, Sheehan must come up with a name for her party. May I suggest Freedom Fighters? Sheehan actually coined this name for the people who killed her hero son, Casey Sheehan. Terrorists shot Casey on April 4, 2004, in a Baghdad slum where he was on a rescue mission.
