    Cindy Sheehan's Back, and the AP Still Thinks She's News

    Posted by Lyford Beverage on August 7, 2006 - 10:56.
    So, Cindy Sheehan is back in Crawford, and the Associated Press is continuing to act as her publicity agents. They still haven't shown any inclination to address any comments of hers that might be controversial. They still treat her as the grieving mother of a marine, rather than a leftist peace activist.
    A year after her first war protest in President Bush's adopted hometown attracted thousands and reinvigorated the nation's peace movement, Cindy Sheehan resumed her vigil Sunday....
    "It doesn't say my new address, but I do live here now," said Sheehan, who lives in Berkeley, Calif., and recently bought land in Crawford for war protests. "My name is Cindy and Bush killed my son."

    The group then chanted, "This is what democracy looks like! This is what democracy sounds like!" and a few people sang "This Land Is Your Land" while standing near the roadblock before returning to the protest site.

    Sheehan continues to get press and publicity for one reason, and one reason only - she's a hammer that the media can use to bludgeon President Bush. There is no news value in her return to Crawford. There's no reason that anyone outside of Crawford should care about her. She got her interview with the President, which the AP continues to not bother mentioning. She's just a pawn in the chess game of American politics, with the President and the Republicans on one side, and the Democrats and the mainstream press on the other...

    Ann Coulter said this about our favorite anti-war activist, and I'm paraphrasing.. "Cindy Sheehan has accomplished one thing in life, she's shown us which body type does not look good in shorts"

    Unhinged Democrats and those afflicted with the Bush Derangement Syndrome - they are the gift that keeps on giving.....

    They need to throw her as in jail or the funny farm for stalking the President of the United States.

    I hope the daily, 100 degree weather we're currently having fries her fat ass to a crisp and runs her right on back to where she comes from.

    If I was on her 'fast' I'd gain weight. From the latest pics, she has too.

    All her talk about 'my heart, his heart, their hearts' makes me want to puke. It sounds like she's talking to a five-year-old girl.

    Yeah, her "diary" is a real tear jerker. I loved the part about being neighborly...as she mounts an attack on her neighbor!

    She really does not bother me.

    I don't pay any attention to her.

    I wonder if she has gotten around to putting a tomb stone on Casey's grave? Last I read there still wasn't one honoring him. I have to wonder why he wasn't buried in one of our country's Veterans Memorial Cemetaries. If he was there he would surely have his stone and the respect his remains deserve.
