Joke of the day

Courtesy of the AP, here's today's joke of the day: "Sheehan Considers Challenging Feinstein." That's right, you heard it here first...famed anti-war protestor Cindy Sheehan is seriously considering running against our lovely Senator from California, Dianne Feinstein. When asked for reasons why to run against Feinstein, Sheehan listed Feinstein's "vote of support for the war, and continued votes in favor of funding and refusal to call for an immediate withdrawal of troops."

Wow. Again, wow. This woman really has no clue, at all. And here's the best part: she made this statement in Caracas, which as you might know, is part of Hugo Chavez's utopian workers paradise. The occasion in Caracas was the World Social Forum. Anyway, Ms. Sheehan really has no clue about the politics of people in this country. Just because you are a darling of the media and a convenient tool of the left does not mean that most people in this country like you, or will even tolerate you.

I'll let Dane Cook provide the final word: "I want to think about doing something so outrageous, so crazy, so completely off the wall that it provokes people to say, "Are you out of your fuckin' mind?!?" And then I want to actually do the thing, so that people will say, "You ARE out of your fuckin' mind!!"

And this is the territory where Ms. Sheehan is treading.
