The Wages of Appeasement

        In this post, I mentioned that Diane Feinstein had flip-flopped on the filibuster issue, apparently because of the threat of a primary challenge from Cindy Sheehan.

        Now, Feinstein reaps her just reward:
        Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who set up camp near President Bush's Texas ranch last summer, said Saturday she is considering running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein to protest what she called the California lawmaker's support for the war in Iraq.

        "She voted for the war.  She continues to vote for the funding.  She won't call for an immediate withdrawal of the troops," Sheehan told The Associated Press in an interview while attending the World Social Forum in Venezuela along with thousands of other anti-war and anti-globalization activists.

        "I think our senator needs to be held accountable for her support of George Bush and his war policies," said Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004.

        And the marathon crackup of the Democrats goes on and on . . .

  • Ask her about this filibuster plan and why the DNC is willing to "give up the right" to discuss issues the RNC won't discuss.

    The RNC keeps yanking the information off the web. What's up with this "free speech" stuff, anyway?

            Nothing you wrote seems to have any connection with my post, and none of it seems to mean anything anyway.

            Perhaps you need your meds adjusted?
