I was going to be considerably more cruel about the truly unfortunate news that Cindy Sheehan is quitting the Democratic Party - yeah, I know. Establishment Democrat stomach acid production dropped 20% within 24 hours of hearing the news - but I shall forbear, for two reasons. The first is this picture:
"Help. A crazy white woman has attached herself to my back." (H/T Hot Air)
It takes a lot to make me feel sorry for Rev. Jesse Jackson, but seeing him forced to make physical contact with Sheehan will actually do. Yeah, yeah, I know: he made his bed, let him lie in it, but still: you can just see him concentrating on his back and wondering if that tingling sensation is the crazy coming through. Anyway, that's the one reason: the other? She's thinking about running for Congress (Via, again, Hot Air).
Because, you know, God apparently really is a Republican.
Looking at the Times' handy-dandy 2006 House results graphic - and, much as we mock the Old Grey Lady, it must be noted that they consistently have some pretty good online databases - and Sheehan's residency options, I'm going to recommend the following races for her: either CA's 11th District, or TX's 22nd and/or 23rd. All three were flipped from Republican to Democratic in the last election, so surely she and her overriding moral authority can handle both beating the incumbent in a primary fight and defeating the Republican challenger. I mean, we keep getting told over and over again about how the progressive antiwar movement represents the true face of America - usually right after Establishment Democrats react to VRWC opposition like scared little chinchillas* (to wit, die on the spot) - so it'd not even be a challenge, right?
I encourage our readers to pick their own races for Sheehan to enter. Don't worry if it's for a district not in California or Texas: the woman's already demonstrated that she's quite accomplished at rationalization (the unkind would say 'denial', or perhaps 'deliberately induced insanity'). You looking at a hard race? Give 'er a call!
PS: Yes, I know, it'll never happen. The Establishment Democrats are on track to purge the progressives during the course of the summer; there's an election coming up, after all, and the last thing that the former needs is for the latter to mess up what promises to be an excellent shot at the Oval Office. Still. If we're sufficently mocking, maybe she'll do it anyway.
Every little bit helps.
