    AUGUST 15--The next well-wisher approaching Cindy Sheehan at her tent encampment outside President George W. Bush's Texas vacation home may actually be a process server. That's because the California woman's husband--in a curious bit of timing--filed for divorce Friday afternoon (below you'll find a copy of Patrick Sheehan's complaint, lodged August 12 in Solano County District Court). With Sheehan, 48, entering a second week outside Bush's Crawford retreat, her husband's divorce petition cites "irreconcilable differences" for the demise of the couple's 28-year marriage (the Sheehans, the document states, have been separated since June 1). Along with a Vacaville home, Patrick Sheehan listed other "community assets" as "any and all benefits payable as a result of son's death," including a Prudential insurance policy and "benefits from the U.S. Government." From her roadside outpost, Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son Casey, an Army Specialist, was killed last year in Iraq, has become the face of the U.S. antiwar movement, telling reporters that she will not budge until Bush meets with her and explains "why our sons are dead." Noting that Bush has referred to the war as a "noble" pursuit, Sheehan told Reuters, "If it's such a noble cause, why aren't his daughters over there?" Patrick Sheehan's lawyer, Glen DeRonde, did not return a TSG call, so it is unclear whether the divorce complaint will be delivered to her in Texas or when she returns to her home east of San Francisco.

    I doubt I'll feel sorry for her, but Taranto has a point:

    I am so sick of hearing comments like...

    Ma'am, the President's daughters are, just like your son was, adults capable of making their own decisions. We have an all volunteer military. We do not send of children to war against their will in this country. They do so of their own volition.

    Just like that fat jackass going to D.C. to ask Sen.'s whether or not their children were in Iraq.

    It's such a specious and dishonorable argument. Those who make it ought to be ashamed of themselves.

    Not sure what fat jackass you are referring to, but I totally agree with everything you say. Kennedy is a major embarrasment. I love the way talk radio, Laura Ingram in particular make him look like a real dolt, drunken dolt that he is.

    Today I heard on Larry Elder, he replayed a tape of an interview with Howard Dean.

    Dean "The main theme of the Democrat party can be summed up in three words ' we need to change' ", hmmm, only problem was it was FOUR words he used, bwahhahahahha, they call Bush a dummy, Dean cant even count !!

    Was referring to Michael 'two' Moore 'cheesburgers please'.

    In his propaganda piece Fahrenheit 9/11 he confronted congressman on the streets of D.C. and asked them whether their children were in Iraq.

    It's buyers remorse. Everyone knows the danger of military service. What kind of idiotic sense of entitlement makes her think her son was immune to death?

    Yep. I believe he also cut footage where the man's response was, "my son is 9."
