Schadenfreude Anyone?

Run, Cindy Sheehan, Run!
By Dinesh D'Souza

The far-left in America and Europe has an underlying craziness for which I am deeply thankful. This craziness does have a redeeming quality: it is driven by a certain brave consistency. That keeps it from being merely comic. Even so, it comes to the rescue of conservatives just when things are beginning to look gloomy.

Case in point: Ralph Nader. Just when it seemed that Al Gore might be able to defeat Bush, along came Nader to spoil Gore's picnic. Gore's strategy was to lean just enough to the center to try and win the swing voters. Nader attacked Gore's left flank by accusing him of betraying the working class. Nader stole just enough votes from Gore that the 2000 election was a tie, at which point the Supreme Court came in and settled the toss in favor of Bush.

Now we hear that activist Cindy Sheehan is threatening to challenge Nancy Pelosi for her congressional seat. Sheehan says that if Pelosi doesn't begin impeachment proceedings against Bush very soon, she's going to run. “Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership,” Sheehan fumes. “We hired them to bring an end to the war.”
Sheehan is driven by grief that seems to have turned into blind hatred.

Oh, God yes, Cindy, by all means run. Run Cindy run. This will be the final act in this wretched womans life, a final humilation of herself before the world, if she has the capacity for humilating herself once more. I'm sure Cindy will be up to the task. J'Mac.
