On Saturday morning, November 11, 2006, just four days after The Election, I went down to Ocean Beach in San Francisco (the city where an Impeach-Bush-and-Cheney resolution passed with 91,000 “yes” votes), and with the heel of my boot I carved into the sand -- in 100-foot letters that stretched for more than 400 feet along the beach -- this message:

I M P E A C H !

In advance, I had alerted some of my friends, and that morning thirty of them joined me on the beach. A helicopter arrived briefly overhead, and while all of us laid down inside the outline of the message’s exclamation point, photographers recorded the scene from above. (See three photos at

When the helicopter chattered away, my friends said: “Imagine… Imagine how mind-blowing, how powerful this would be if all these letters were filled in with bodies!”

And today, November 29, the Park Service issued a permit for just that to happen -- I can invite anyone I want, and so can you.

"And if Pelosi named Obama as vice-president... what a change in the face America shows to the world! Shock and awe would take on a whole new meaning. The international community would again shower America with the same empathy, support, and goodwill that were showered upon us after 9/11."

Don't kid yourself, friend - Pelosi and Obama would be a way bigger disaster than 9/11.
