No Senate Run for Sheehag  

Friday, February 10, 2006

Sheehag says she's not running.

Damn!!! That would have been soooooooooo much fun.

Of course, I predicted it wouldn't happen.

Then she has to beat Feinstein, a Donk bigwig for a long time with the power of incumbency and a shitload of California taxpayer money at her back (not to mention a whole mess of cash-ola pouring in from left-wing special interests, no doubt including George Sore-ass and Michael the Moron), in the primary election.

Second, if she's fortunate enough to win that primary, she then must convince the taxpayers of California that she's coherent enough to deserve the seat over whomever the Republican challenger is. A tough task indeed, even in California. She will sooner or later have to face the fact that her loony viewpoint won't even attract California voters. Why does she think Feinstein voted for the things Sheehag is faulting her for? Because she sincerely agrees with the President? Well it's possible, but more likely it's because she likes her power and doesn't want the voters in California to vote her out for not supporting the President on this crucial issue.

Sheehag has a snowball's chance in hell of winning Feinstein's Senate seat. Watching her try would be HILARIOUS.

Sheehag's real gripe with the President doesn't really have anything to do with her son's death or, for that matter, the war. It's really all about her far-left socialist point of view.

My analysis of her position was outlined this past August in an email to Mohammed at the blog Iraq the Model, which I will again post here:

I am always inspired by the words you guys post on your blog. Unfortunately, I cannot get into the comments section to read or post comments.

The reason I am sending you this email is to give you a real perspective on Cindy Sheehan. This woman is exploiting her son's death in the interests of those who align themselves with her politically. These people are staunchly anti-war and quite frankly, couldn't care less about your freedom. They care very little about our own freedom here in America.

In her letter to President Bush, she says very little about her son and her anti-war efforts. She says nothing about why she is opposed to the war or anything of the sort. Her words are not those of a grieving mother, but those of an angry activist whose cause is lost.

Here is the full text of her letter:

Just as an example, I'll analyze the last paragraph of her letter:

"The 56,000,000 plus citizens who voted against you and your agenda have given me a mandate to move forward with my agenda."

56 million people is a lot of people, but 62 million is more. President Bush has the bigger mandate, Mohammad. Stand by him as you have. You are doing the right thing.

"Also, thanks to you and your careless domestic policies, I am unemployed, so this will be my full-time job."

I think it says a lot about a person when they say that complaining will be a full-time job. In her letter that is supposed to be about her son, she brings up domestic policy. Do you see where this is going?

"Being your political downfall will be the most noble accomplishment of my life and it will bring justice for my son and 1125 (so far) other brave Americans and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis your lies have killed."

Mrs. Sheehan will fail at this and she knows it. If she doesn't, those who are using her to make political hay do. As for her assertion that President Bush has deliberately killed tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis, I would personally like to see her proof, and as much as I grieve for every fallen soldier, 1125 dead in the war effort is actually really good. We lost many times that in a single day in the Second World War. Her position is motivated exclusively by her anti-war (and consequently anti-free Iraq) sentiments.

"How many more of their cities are you going to level before you consider that they are liberated?"

Mohammad, you could answer her better than I on this one. Clearly, Iraq is much closer to being free and liberated than ever before. Wouldn't you agree? And how many Iraqi cities have actually been "leveled" in this effort? Again, you would know better than I.

"If you really had any moral values, or if you were an honorable man at all you would resign."

Can you see where she's going here? I, for one, and completely in disagreement with Mrs. Sheehan on this. Apparently, she figures that people with moral values and honor cannot rightfully wage war and liberate people who are, for all intents and purposes, enslaved. Again, Mohammed, these are not the words of a grieving mother, but those of an activist whose cause has failed.

"My son was a man who had high moral values and true courage. Humanity lost a bright light on April 04, 2004."

Finally she gets something right! I disagree, however with the implication that President Bush does not have the same high moral values and true courage.

"I will live the rest of my life missing Casey desperately."

And so will everyone else who knew and loved him, INCLUDING those who fought beside him, and INCLUDING those Iraqis whose lives he saved, and INCLUDING those who now have a free future because of what he did (and did on this President's orders, I might add).

"Thank you for that, George. Have a nice day."

Mrs Sheehan's sarcasm is not appreciated by the majority of Americans, Mohammed. We are behind you all the way.

For an interesting response to Mrs. Sheehan that includes the same kind of sarcasm that she seems to enjoy using, check this out:

Mohammed and Omar, keep fighting the good fight. Freedom always wins in the end. Unfortunately, blood must be spilled to get there. The red and white stripes on our flag are supposed to remind Americans of this, as they symbolize the blood and bandages of those wounded and/or killed in battle. Blood is the price of freedom. There cannot be freedom without sacrifice. Casey Sheehan's honor and memory are being perverted by his own mother, and I personally find that shameful.

I hope you were able to find the time to read this email in its entirety, and I wish you and all your fellow Iraqis all of the very best in building the free nation you deserve. God/Allah/Yahweh knows it's been a long time coming.


So, anyway, the best thing to happen to the cause of freedom in America since Weird Howard will not be running for the Senate. Hopefully, she will find other ways to bring her brand of humor to the pages of conservative blogs everywhere. It just doesn't get much funnier.
