Pelosi’s GOP opponent is endorsed former Green Party vice-presidential candidate, touted by Cindy Sheehan

Dave Weigel notes that Nancy Pelosi’s anti-war Republican opponent John Dennis is getting an unexpected boost from infamous anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan who recently addressed this letter to the Speaker of the House:

My good friend, SF politico and former VP Candidate [for Ralph Nader, 2008], Matt Gonzalez, has endorsed John Dennis because, as is your custom, you gutlessly refused to debate him. I am also encouraging you (once again, futilely) to not only debate John Dennis, but Gloria La Riva, too.

I like and admire both John and Gloria and support them as human beings who both have the two things that you lack but would have made you a much better person: courage and integrity.

As someone who got a kick in the teeth from the political school of elitism two years ago, I can’t endorse anyone for Federal elections which I believe are only a huge sham and scandal at any rate, but I am convinced that either John or Gloria would represent district 8 in California far better than you have on your best day.

As crazy as this year is for Democrats, it’s hard to imagine Pelosi is at all in trouble. Still, in San Francisco kind words from Cindy Sheehan and a major Green Party endorsement could have an impact.
