* ImpeachForChange
* Orange Revolution

Cindy Sheehan led 2-300 impeachment activists on a march from Arlington Cemetary to the Congressional office of Rep. John Conyers, whose job as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee puts him in charge of impeachment. AP reports:

"Impeachment is not a fringe movement, it is mandated in our Constitution; Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table," Sheehan told her group of orange-clad activists Monday. "If Nancy Pelosi doesn't do her constitutionally mandated job by midnight ... I will announce that I'm going to run against her."

I just got a live report from David Swanson, who says Conyers is nowhere to be found - but Sheehan, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, and former CIA presidential briefer Ray McGovern are inside his office holding a press conference!

In fact, there are so many reporters with Cindy that they are taking turns going into the packed office to ask questions.

At least 300 activists are lining the halls outside the office, both the marchers and those who went directly to the Capitol.

Update 1:30: Conyers staff is negotiating with activists to move the protest to a larger room.

In Detroit, 50 people went to Conyers' district office, but they only let 5 people in and wouldn't let them keep their cellphones so we're not getting any reports.

Update 1:35: Conyers just arrived!! As he walked down the hall, activists shouted IMPEACH so loud the whole floor echoed. Conyers and his staff took Cindy, Rev., and Ray into a private office without the media. Stay tuned!

Update 2:55: After an 80-minute meeting, Cindy emerged and told the activists that Conyers said "our only recourse is elections," and the activists groaned. Cindy announced she will run against Pelosi because she and Conyers haven't "stepped up," and the activists cheered. Rev. Yearwood is giving a fired-up speech and activists are crowding in to Conyers' office for the sit-in.

Update 3:43: Capitol Police arrested Cindy Sheehan, Ray McGovern, Rev. Yearwood, David Swanson, and 20 other activists and put them on a police bus. But all is not grim - Cindy is calling it her "campaign bus."

Republicans remind me of the Fascist Hitler, its how it is and the heck with the people. Hitler orders Germany to go to war. Bush and his Republican gang go to war with Iraq and there is no end in sight. Everyone fears Hitler Bush, right. Everyone except Joan of Arc type Cindy Sheehan. Both women were ridiculed and both women were for the people!

Sheehan is very brave. People can call her anything they want, vilify her in any way, and it won't change a thing. I'll still admire her. She's out there pushing buttons while the rest of us sit on our butts.
"Until you are willing to organize your friends and neighbors and literally shut down cities - drive at 5mph through the streets of major cities on the freeway and stop commerce, refuse to show up for work, refuse to borrow and spend more than you make, show up in Washington DC with a million of your neighbors and literally shut down The Capitol you WILL be bent over the table on a daily basis." Karl Denninger

Don't blame me; I voted for Ron Paul.

She will never win she hasn't got a prayer in her life to even come close to Nancy. Knowbody cares about what she has to say anymore it is just a lot of nonsense and bullshit. If she didn't want her son to join the army then she should have gotten some balls and siad i don't want you to join and be killed. Cindy Sheehan has no BALLS whats so ever. Cindy Sheehan is nothing more than an AMERICAN JOKE THAT GIVES US GREAT LAUGHS.
