Cindy Sheehan's campaign milestone

Things have been extremely hectic at the Sheehan campaign headquarters here in San Francisco. While Cindy and most of her staff were in D.C. to make a showing at John Conyers's "Okay, I guess we can *talk* about impeachment" hearings, an army of paid petitioners gathered petitions by the hundreds, sending our petition totals to well over the 10,000 required to get her on the ballot as an independent candidate for U.S. Congress, running against the current Speaker of the House Nancy "Impeachment is Off the Table" Pelosi. Of course, not all of those signatures are going to be valid, but we have several days to make up for any discrepancies.

There's a palpable change in the mood of the campaign, and Nancy Pelosi's constituency. Maybe people have finally had enough with their elected representative selling their constitutional rights down the river, and thumbing her nose at the rising chorus of San Franciscans who demand Bush's crime cabal be held to account.

For anybody doesn't think Cindy Sheehan's campaign is serious, you're wrong. I can't think of anyone more deserving of a seat in Congress than Cindy, or anyone more deserving of getting a seat pulled out from under her butt than Nancy.
