woo hoo! go, cindy, go!

This story made my day.
House Democrats tried to unveil their lobbying reform package today, but their press conference was drowned out by chants from anti-war activists who want Congress to stop funding the Iraq war before taking on other issues.

Led by Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a slain soldier, the protesters chanted "De-escalate, investigate, troops home now" as Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., began outlining the Democrats' plans to ban lobbyist-funded travel and institute other ethics reforms. The press conference was held in the Cannon House Office Building in an area open to the public...
This is so perfect - the Democrats rode a crest of anti-war sentiment into office, and now they are forgetting all about why they are there, just like I knew they would. And it couldn't happen to a more deserving bastard, Rahm Emanuel. Not only did he take undue credit for all the Dems success in the election, but he favored the pro-war wing of the party during the primaries.

As I've said before, I don't know why Sheehan has to take so much grief from libertarians and antiwar conservatives. No, she isn't perfect, but she's doing exactly what she should be doing - reminding those asses why they were put in office in the first place.
