No, Mother Sheehan is about to be annihilated... by the media.
No, I don't mean Fox, although I'm sure Sean Hannity will increase his smugness factor. I mean the liberal media, and by liberal media, I mean the rest of the media. All of them - with the possible exception of far, far, far leftist moonbat rags - will soon abandon their support for Sheehan and instead start to work toward her downfall.
How do I know this relatively unlikely turn of events is about to occur?
Simple. She's threatening to run for the US Senate, against a seasoned Democrat opponent:
Sheehan Considers Challenging FeinsteinThe media may be biased, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt that they aren't all raving mad. They aren't going to abandon this lefty for this one.

CARACAS, Venezuela - Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who set up camp near President Bush's Texas ranch last summer, said Saturday she is considering running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein (news, bio, voting record) to protest what she called the California lawmaker's support for the war in Iraq.
"She voted for the war. She continues to vote for the funding. She won't call for an immediate withdrawal of the troops," Sheehan told The Associated Press in an interview while attending the World Social Forum in Venezuela along with thousands of other anti-war and anti-globalization activists.
"I think our senator needs to be held accountable for her support of George Bush and his war policies," said Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004.
Feinstein's campaign manager, Kam Kuwata, said the senator "doesn't support George Bush and his war policies."
"She has stated publicly on numerous occasions that she felt she was misled by the administration at the time of the vote," Kuwata said by phone from California.
But with troops committed, Feinstein believes immediate withdrawal is not a responsible option, Kuwata said.
"Senator Feinstein's position is, let's work toward quickly turning over the defense of Iraq to Iraqis so that we can bring the troops home as soon as possible," he said.
Sheehan accused Feinstein of being out of touch with Californians on the issue.
She said she would decide whether to run after talking with her three other adult children. The Democratic primary will be held in June, and candidates must submit their statements for the voter guide by Feb. 14.
Kuwata said Feinstein and Sheehan appear to have a fundamental disagreement over whether troops should be pulled out right now. "That's why they have elections, and if she decides to file (paperwork to run), so be it," he said.
Feinstein is a Democrat stalwart and has a dead lock on San Francisco. Get a load of her resume and tell me if you think that the press will slam her in order to help Sheehan, a woman who derives her "absolute moral authority" solely from the dead soldier son whose corpse she uses as a platfrom from which to harangue the country her son died for.
If she really starts to look like she has a chance, they'll destroy her. Just sit back with me, watch, and laugh.
