If you got up this morning wondering how California could get any worse… get ready for Governor Cindy Sheehan. Some may ask whether a woman who even managed to alienate the anti-war movement that swarmed around her is qualified to run for higher office. But I say why not?
California has lived through Governor Terminator and Governor Moonbeam, why not Governor Crazy?
Cindy Sheehan no longer has her old platform of George W. Bush, so it’s going to be a challenge to make herself relevant to California’s new welfare and union voters.
The newly proclaimed candidate is none other than Cindy Sheehan, who gained notoriety a few years ago as the angry mother of a soldier killed in Iraq.
Sheehan has always been a bizarre figure, and she’s obviously grown more radical as the years have passed. She openly described herself as a socialist, proclaimed her admiration for Hugo Chavez and described California Gov. Jerry Brown as an “a**hole.”
Even though she was appearing at a Green Party event, Sheehan said she felt the party doesn’t go far enough.
“I’m a socialist and I’m not going to be ashamed to say it!” she said. “One of my biggest inspirations is President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. Yea, President Hugo.”
I think we should all welcome the inevitable secession of California, its rise as an independent banana republic and the inevitable border wars.
