67. Two more chances to tell her in person what a great job she's doing...
It's pretty rare to get close enough to her to do much more than flip her off. But she made a serious tactical error by making personal appearances all over the country shilling for her book -- which supposedly has something to do with empowering women, if you can stand the irony.

Tuesday evening, a crowd of furious peasants showed up at a Pelosi book signing in LA. Harsh words, serious charges and non-negotiable demands to impeach the bastards. Details in this GD thread from yesterday. She was apparently a bit rattled by the level of outrage and anger. So that's good, and fun for the whole family, too.

There are only two more of these opportunities for direct confrontation left. Her publisher's website lists the following book signings, the next tomorrow evening in San Francisco.

8/14/2008 Cowell Theater Fort Mason Center, Pier 2 San Francisco, CA 94123 415-643-3400x11 7 pm

8/20/2008 Tattered Cover Bookstore 1628 16th Street Denver, CO 80202 303-436-1070

Enough with email petitions, useless phone calls and faxes. She's not going to let her white house pals down and she doesn't give a damn what the people want. For one thing, they're all obscenely rich members of the same elite club and social stratum and it's just plain rude to impeach your friends.

And there's that little matter of signing off on torture when she was briefed by the CIA in 2002, making her an accessory after the fact to Bushie's war crimes. Impeachment proceedings would certainly open up that line of inquiry and the outcome might be a bit unpleasant.

It would be nice to assume she'll be nailed by the Justice Dept. or the ICC for those crimes, but let's be realistic. There are no penalties for anyone who advances the objectives of the Bush International Crime Syndicate.

So she might as well get an earful from the people for once. Particularly from those in her district tomorrow evening at Ft. Mason. I'm assuming Cindy's attending. I'm assuming the crowd will project a level of open hostility usually reserved for serial killers and republicans.

I hope she takes note of all that outrage and starts to get a little nervous that Cindy may pull off the upset of the century and send Pelosi's useless ass somewhere she can't do any more damage.

Thanks to those in LA who nailed her to the wall. Thanks to those who go.

And if you decide to attend, dress appropriately. Catcher's gear or a modified version of NFL linebacker chic would be a good model.

Thanks for giving a damn and best wishes for scaring the shit out of her,
