My Cindy Sheehan Post

My wife and I have been in a debate about this whole "Crawford Stand" over the last few days. While I am, of course, rabidly pumping my fist in support of my fellow Californian, one from Vacaville, at that...literally, a cow town in California. How much more American can you get?

Anyhow, my wife, who is morally on the same side, wonders what can be achieved if Chimpy gives in to the polling and meets with Mrs. Sheehan. "What does she hope to accomplish?" My wife asked. "Her son will still be dead."

For what it's worth, I don't think he will ever meet her. And therein lies her victory. This man, this administration, who refuses to let photographs of the American dead circulate among the press, who refuses to release photographs and video of the torture perpetrated under their orders, who refuses to release any documentation at ALL of anything, anything that could hinder their agenda...from Bolton to Roberts, steadfastly REFUSING to give anyone the weapons with which to express dissent...meeting with Cindy Sheehan would be doing just that. It would expose the fact that the Emperor has no clothes. It would reveal to the whole world that the empty platitudes and 10th grade level hyperbole that spills out of this child president's mouth is just that, is just garbage.

While he laughs with his buddies and roars past a grieving mother in a ditch on his way to hang out and party with some fundraisers or take in a little league game, the world's eyes are slowly opening to the true face of evil. It laughs and mocks dead soldier's sacrifices by saying that more must die, because otherwise, what would the point have been? It talks about hard work and staying the course while it relaxes in an environment controlled oasis in the middle of Crawford, playing cowboy.

The quiet courage of Cindy Sheehan, of the Gold Star mothers, of the people slowly arriving to support her...these are the faces of America. They cannot be stopped. They will not hear your doublespeak. Your talking points mean nothing. They want the truth, a truth you are incapable of speaking. They want justice, in the true definition, not your brand of justice where you wipe out hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians and attempt to justify it by repeating the mantra you have befouled, "9/11".

I will tell you what the Bush Administration will do. They will turn their attack dogs on her...Rush, Hannity, Drudge, the usual gang of bootlickers. They will find more relatives who disagree with her. They will find a rabid mom who will rave on FOX that she wishes all of her sons could die for the glorious cause of our wonderful leader. And then, when they've generated enough noise to, in their minds, cover the voice of truth emanating from Camp Casey, Chimpy will slip out of Crawford and on to Air Force One.

One woman versus an entire administration. And she will win.

What all of you Leftist bleeding hearts fail to realize or comprehend or even understand is that Bush ALREADY met with her shortly after Casey's death. At that time Cindy had nothing but praise for the President. REMEMBER?????

This is nothing but a case of radical lefties (Move On, Michael Moore, etc.) taking advantage of a woman's grief and using her as a pawn in advancing their agenda. It WILL backfire.

Well said! Cindy Sheehan puts bush in a no-win situation. If he doesn't meet with her, he looks like a dick. And if he met with her, what could he possibly say that wouldn't make him look like a dick?

Hey Sin, A lot has happened since she met with him, and he's got a lot to answer for since then.

I honestly haven't followed this story that closely and since your site popped up in B.E. when I had this thought, maybe you can answer my question: has Ms. Sheehan tried to schedule a meeting through conventional means? I.e. through the White House scheduling office? Or through her Congressional Representative's office? I'm really curious about this and don't know one way or the other what the answer is. I've been opposed to the war from the beginning and I'm very supportive of her cause. I just don't know about the way she's going about it. I'm not saying I'm against it. I just don't know.

I don't think she's really interested in that, Dave. I think she just found that she likes basking in the media spotlight. I'll have to say, despite being strongly opposed to the attack on Iraq, I'm surprised at the kind of people the Left (mostly) turn to for their heroes (in this case, Sheehan).

In case you guys haven't noticed, we're in the middle of one fucked up war that was planned from a neoconservative think tank and put into motion by the exploitation of 9/11 and the lies of ou president and his administration. Any publicity we can get to turn public support against this is a good thing. Now why anybody against this war would take issue with this woman who lost her son in that war and then bringing the issue straight to Bush while he is on one of his famously long vacations is beyond me. We need to bring this fucker down by any means necessary people! The right have no limits to how dirty they are willing to fight for their agenda. This is nothing compared to the way they work. We need to get behind this brave woman.

Brave Woman? I rest my case.

What case? You don't seem to have much of a case.
