She's Ba-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-ack!

It's as if Cindy Sheehan never left. Less than two months after she publicly declared that she was leaving her unofficial role as titular head of the antiwar movement in the United States, Cindy Sheehan has stated that unless Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi introduces Articles of Impeachment against President Bush within the next two weeks, she will run as an independent against Pelosi in the 2008 General Election: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19665569/from/RS.2/.

Well, bully for her. Since Nancy Pelosi has already said on more than one occasion that impeachment is not on her list of priorities, and since Republicans are pretty much an extinct species in that district, what we'll see is one far left figure (Pelosi) running against an even farther left figure (Sheehan). It should be great fun!

I didn't know Sheehan was from California. I guess if she wins we will just be switching whack jobs. Based on this recent poll, I'm surprised the Democrats haven't dared to try impeachment. Those 45% who support such a resolution are probably not familiar with the Constitution.

People who favour impeachment of President Bush demonstrate their ignorance of the Constitution, but then again, I believed the same thing about those who favoured it from President Clinton.

I was thinking perjury was in the list of impeachable offenses, but I guess not, unless "high crimes and misdemeanours" counts.
