Let's see how the California GOP can bungle this one

So, it looks like Cindy Sheehan is mulling over a run at Dianne Feinstein's Senate seat later this year. Apparently, Feinstein is too much of a bloodthirsty warmonger for Sheehan's taste. Who knew?

Anyway, Feinstein's flacks are spinning a familiar yarn about why she supported the war in Iraq:
Feinstein's campaign manager, Kam Kuwata, said the senator "doesn't support George Bush and his war policies."

"She has stated publicly on numerous occasions that she felt she was misled by the administration at the time of the vote," Kuwata said by phone from California.
That's a winning position for you. "I was duped into voting for this by the stupid chimperor." And they wonder why they keep losing elections.

Meanwhile, not even Cindy f'n Sheehan is crazy enough to think she could win the Democratic primary.
"If I decided to run, I would have no illusions of winning, but it would bring attention to all the peace candidates in the country," she said.
Or maybe, just maybe it could split the Democratic vote by carving the moonbats (a big voting bloc here in California, by the way) away from Feinstein, leaving the door open for a Republican challenger.

Well, a boy can dream, anyway.
