CARACAS, Venezuela ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬? 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.
Listen, not that you’re going to read this, but I’m genuinely sorry for your loss Cindy. You have every right to protest and call the President names and say whatever the hell you want, but please don’t run for the Senate. Please, please, please don’t run. Because if you do, you’re going to turn the primaries into a circus. That’s all this would accomplish, and you and I both know that.
Okay, end of rant.
