Mother Sheehan vs. America's Mother-in-law

AP reports that Cindy Sheehan is threatening to challenge Nancy Pelosi for the Eighth Congressional District seat if Her Speakerness doesn't bring impeachment proceedings against President Bush by July 23rd.

Sheehan said she will run against the San Francisco Democrat in 2008 as an independent if Pelosi does not seek by July 23 to impeach Bush.
Sheehan made similar noises prior to the 2006 elections, saying she would challenge Dianne Feinstein if she didn't filibuster Judge Alito's Supreme Court nomination.

This development is funny. As much as I would revel in SanFranNan being defeated, even if it's by radical liberal, Sheehan is not the person to do it. Despite most Republican's strong dislike for Pelosi, the chances of her being unseated in her district are slim to none. She won in 2006 with 80% of the vote (pdf warning).

Face it, Mother Sheehan is a walking, talking disaster. She can barely string two coherent sentences together, let alone two ideas. If you've heard her talk without a script or prepared statement, you'll understand this.

During her rise to national prominence in August 2005, Chris Spittle Boy Matthews asked if she was considering a run for Congress. I recall thinking at the time he must have a pretty low threshold for who he thinks should represent us in Congress.
Matthews: "Are you considering running for Congress, Cindy?"
Sheehan: "No, not this time. I'm a one issue person. I know a lot about what's going on in Iraq but I don't know anything about anything else. And I want to focus my energy on bringing the troops home."
Matthews gushed: "Okay. Well, I have to tell you, you sound more informed than most U.S. Congresspeople, so maybe you should run."
Someone should smack Matthews in the chops just for planting the idea in her head.

She can probably count on Medea Benjamin and Code Pink, American Socialist Workers and her good buddy Hugo Chavez for support, but
Mother Sheehan doesn't have a prayer of defeating Americ's Mother-in-law, but it should make for good comedy.

Like most radical liberal activists, Cindy Sheehan is nothing more than an attention whore.
