Do you want to "kick" the media?! - US Senate Candidate Sheeler Asks
I have heard from hundreds of people like you who want to stand up against the GOP and their media machine. The frustrations are the same. "Why isn't our (DU) message being listened to if it is supported by the public majority."

Got news for you. I'm a progressive-moderate democratic candidate for US Senate and like Rodney Dangerfield, "No respect". Until Howard Dean was gaining supporters from cyberspace, the media rarely covered him, his positions or events during the presidentail primaries.

Cyberspace advocates reached critical mass and caused attendance at Dean's rallies to skyrocket and the frenzy fed upon itself. The rest is history and we can make some history starting today to Impeach Bush, too -- but I need your help.

I am reaching out to you today with a call to action. Our Wednesday (2/15) Press Conference at 12:30 EST at the Rhode Island Statehouse will feature our "Bush Lied, People Died. He's to be Tried!" release with your help we cobbled together into an excellent release. (Pasted below). It compliments the I-95 Impeach Bush Billboard (www.carlsheeler.com ). It is also two days before our Impeach Bush Blue Fridays where everyone wears the "democratic blue".

Not only do we want local televised coverage, but we want coverage nationally as well. This can happen if you and everyone you know bombards the media list I have pasted below with a Request for Coverage (RFC) of this event. After the event, we make sure we send the release to every blog post and media outlet you can think of beside the ones provided and hounds them until they do. Unless you are a Bush loving dirtbag.

Simply do the following. Paste the list below in the "TO" line. Then, in the "RE" line of your email put "I want to hear what US Senate candidate Sheeler (D-RI) Has to Say on 2/15"

In the body, simply state:

I am a supporter of Carl Sheeler's bid for Senator Lincoln Chafee's seat in the Rhode Island 2006 US Senate race. While the press has covered Sheldon Whitehouse and Matt Brown, I believe the media has failed to provide adequate and balanced reporting of all three primary candidates. Mr. Sheeler reflects the solid leadership we need and I believe the public would love to hear what he has to say.

I have learned Mr. Sheeler intends to hold a press conference at the Rhode Island Statehouse Rotunda on Wednesday where he intends to challenge the Rhode Island General Assembly to exercise their right under Section 603 of the United States House Rules to initiate impeachment proceedings by transmitting charges to Congress in a joint resolution. This would make Rhode Island, one of the bluest states in the union, the first to do so.

Many of Carl's supporters are hoping and waiting for the media to accept its public duty with respondible coverage of this event. I personally love his "Be Patriotic Impeach Bush" Billboard sign. It is the first in the nation and reflects the sentiment of millions of Americans. Clearly, this was a news worthy event that should have received considerably more coverage and created much activity on the blogosphere - the next frontier of public news.

DO NOT POST THIS RELEASE UNTIL AFTER 2/15, WEDNESDAY 12:30 EST, BUT YOU ARE WELCOME TO SUGGEST EDITS. I HAVE TO KEEP IT BELOW 500 WORDS!!!

US Senate Candidate Sheeler Bush lied. People died. Its time to be tried."

Providence, RI - U.S. Senate Candidate Carl Sheeler (D-RI) is challenging his Democratic rivals, former Attorney General Sheldon Whitehouse and Secretary of State Matt Brown, to join him in urging Congressmen James Langevin and Patrick Kennedy to co-sponsor a bill introduced by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). They would be joining 24 other House Democrats in co-sponsoring HR 635, creating a committee to investigate impeachable charges against President Bush.

Sheeler, a former Marine Captain who served during the first Gulf war, has demanded the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq and called on Democratic leaders to block the nomination of Samuel Alito due to his support for authoritarian executive power.

Capt. Sheeler wants Rhode Island to lead the Bush impeachment effort. In addition to asking Rhode Island's U.S. Representatives to "show the leadership that over two-thirds of our citizens want" and "support John Conyers, not because he's a Democrat ... it's the right thing." Sheeler has also called for members of the Rhode Island General Assembly to exercise their right under Section 603 of the United States House Rules to initiate impeachment proceedings by transmitting charges to Congress in a joint resolution.

Referring to the tagline coined by City of Cranston Republican Mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Stephen Laffey, Sheeler asserted that "In at least one thing, I agree with Mayor Laffey, let's be the smallest state with the largest voice." Sheeler, a self-styled 70s Democrat, went on to say:

"In just the past two weeks there has been additional testimony concerning the Bush administrations lying about its knowledge of the levees breaking and mishandling of the Katrina aftermath.

"Republican leadership acknowledges President Bush lied about wiretapping; CIA executives have stated Bush lied about the reasons for declaring War in Iraq. The president lied when he implied he had no association with lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

"Bush lied about being strong on defense his military spending benefits contractors, while short-changing the number of combat troops needed and reduces health benefits for our veterans. Bush lied that his wealth tax cuts would not endanger our budget surplus, but now were over $8 trillion in debt costing each of us over $25,000.

"I am running for US Senate in the name of Truth. Our citizens need a clear and unequivocal voice with the courage and conviction to say The President Lied.'"

The Sheeler for U.S. Senate Campaign has recently erected a billboard along I-95 that declares "Be Patriotic. Impeach Bush with the Constitution in the background.

8. A couple ideas for edits
Capt. Sheeler wants Rhode Island to lead the Bush impeachment effort.
Capt. Sheeler wants Rhode Island to lead the effort to impeach Bush.


"Bush lied about being strong on defense his military spending benefits
contractors, while short-changing the number of combat troops needed and
reduces health benefits for our veterans. Bush lied that his wealth tax
cuts would not endanger our budget surplus, but now were over $8 trillion
in debt costing each of us over $25,000.


"Bush lied about being strong on defense his military spending short-changes
combat troops and veterans while enriching cronies and contractors. Bush lied
that his wealth tax cuts would not endanger our budget surplus, but now were
over $8 trillion in debt costing every taxpayer over $25,000 and unfairly
burdening our children.

note - is that $25,000 per citizen or per taxpayer? I thought it might be more
powerful rhetoric to say every taxpayer rather than each of us, but I don't
know if that renders the $25,000 figure inaccurate.

17. Thanks for saying what others don't seem to have the honesty to say.


I offer some small input to your (I mean, OUR) cause.

yet his military spending benefits contractors while short-changing the number of combat troops needed and reduces health benefits for our veterans."


Suggest: "yet his military spending has enriched certain contractors while scrimping on life saving armor for our under-manned forces and treats our brave veterans with disdain by whitling their health benefits."


I don't know if this can be used in your release as it appears to be quoting something you already said. But, maybe it can be used in a future statement.

P.S. If Cheney invites you on hunting party - DON'T GO!
