This'll be a quick one. Working three jobs takes its toll on a person's will to blog.

It was reported last week that Cindy Sheehan intends to run for California Congress in 2008. Now weirder folks have run for public office...some have actually gotten in, and I don't have to name names (JESSE %#!^?%$ VENTURA). Newsworthy though it may be to the talking heads on major networks, I get the feeling that most socially-aware citizens just shrugged and went "Yeah...OK, cool." I know I did.

No, what makes this story interesting is the ultimatum that Sheehan put towards House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, namely that if impeachment charges are not drawn up against Bush by a week from now, Sheehan will run for Congress...and she'll be going after Pelosi's seat.

Now, I'm not looking to talk about whether or not anyone takes Sheehan seriously enough anymore or anything of that nature. If you're reading this, there's a 50/50 chance you probably don't know, legally, what Bush is to impeached for. Sure he's incompetent, greedy, and doesn't know head from, better half...but those aren't grounds for impeachment.

What IS a grounds, however, is that he lied to Congress and to the American people about our reasons for going to war with Iraq. It has been proven to the point of common knowledge by now, and we still have yet to see anything done about it.

This will undoubtedly go down as one of the most FUBAR decades in American history.
