Gilmore Quits

Jim Gilmore has withdrawn his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President:

It has become apparent to me that the combination of my late start, and the front loaded nature of the primary schedule, have made it impractical to continue to pursue this path towards further public service.

[. . .]

However, I have come to believe that it takes more than a positive vision for our nation’s future to successfully compete for the Presidency. I believe that it takes years of preparation to put in place both the political and financial infrastructure to contest what now amounts to a one-day national primary in February.
Maybe Gilmore will get in the Senate race.

A Morph Too Far?

Taryn Southern's "Hott4Hill" parody of the Obama-Girl video, with the combination of grade school children and lesbian sexual innuendos, probably appealed to Hillary's base .

RedStaters will find this version from Curmudgeonly Skeptical more stimulating:

Waiting For Fred - Just A Little Bit Longer...

From today's US News & World Report Political Bulletin:

Fox News' Special Report reported last night that former Sen. Fred Thompson will not announce his presidential candidacy in July as previously reported, but "look for the first week of August for Thompson to get in -- quite possibly with former McCain staffers in tow."
Even though Fred has made up his mind, he continues to advance as he teases us along. You can listen to Fred deny that his presidential campaign exploration is coy or flirtatious in Part one of RedState's interview Fred!cast.

As the Four Seasons put it:

Stay, Ahhh, Just a little bit longer.
Please, please, please, please, please . . .

Sheehan Threatens Pelosi

Cindy Sheehan, the "Everymom of the antiwar movement," plans to run for Speaker Nancy Pelosi's congressional seat unless Pelosi introduces articles of impeachment against President Bush in the next two weeks.

Sheehan is unhappy that the Democratic Pelosi - Reid Congress hasn't ended the War:

"Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership," Sheehan told The Associated Press. "We hired them to bring an end to the war.

So much for Sheean's resignation from the anti-war movement. Sheehan and her left-wing extremist handlers are trying to capitalize on the American Research Group poll finding that 45 percent favor impeachment of the president, and 54 percent favor it for the vice president.

Will California Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer warn Sheehan not to challenge Pelosi like Boxer did when Sheehan said she would run against California’s other Democratic Senator, Dianne Feinstein?

The image is from Pelosi's official website.
