Remember Cindy Sheehan?

I was told to my face that what she was doing wasn’t a stunt, that she was simply a grieving mother who deserved some answers.

This via Wizbang. Here’s Mrs. Sheehan’s latest (sorry, but it’s on–which goes to show something about the company you keep…):

George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power.


Yes, critics. I only excerpted a portion of her piece. That’s why it’s called an excerpt. You may say “well, she thinks EVERYONE deserves food right before that” blah blah blah.

She said Bush needs to pull the troops out of “occupied New Orleans”. She’s a crackpot pure and simple.

Isn’t everyone who jumped to her defense just so proud of what they’ve created?


  1. Remember, if someone in your family dies after voluntarily going to fight in a war zone, that instantly makes you an expert on international relations. Same thing if you star in a major motion picture. Then again, if someone’s dad fights in a (the?) war, and he himself was a member of the National Guard, that don’t count for nuthin’. Someone has to die, people. Just fighting doesn’t count. Oh, it helps to be at least partially deranged.

  2. Holy Cow! Are you sure Scrappleface didn’t write this? If it weren’t for the fact that I know some people actually agree with her this would be funny.

  3. Actually, from the start I’ve thought her grief unhinged her. All I really know about her is the brief sound bytes I’ve seen on TV, and the stuff posted here and there. Not much of an accurate knowledge base to form an ‘intellignet and accurate’ opinion (as opposed to most of my knee jerk opinions, LOL!) about her. The blindingly obivious (to name just a few) are: 1. Her son died at an inherently violent job he volunteered for. 2. There’s a real good chance he died for something he ‘believed in’ (the Iraq war), even if she didn’t/doesn’t. 3. Her son was an adult who was legally and intellectually responsible enough to make his own choices in life, with or with out his parents approval (something my kids do with annoying frequency! LOL!) 4. The idea the chief executive of this country has (or should) to meet with ‘people’ who disagree with policy deceisions he’s made is laughable. He doesn’t have time. Get over it! 5. Ms. Sheehan is being merceilessly used by people and organizations with their own agendas, who could care less whether that useage is harmful to her or not. 6. Please feel free to add in the next 1000 points on this topic…….as I’m sure there are at least that many!
