I Don't Blame Cindy

Just a shout out to Cindy Sheehan - why not quit? It's pretty clear now that the cause is lost, when most of the country wants us out of Iraq but Congress is too weak or stupid to try. And I know you're going to get more people calling you an attention whore, from both sides now, which is ridiculous. Sure, that's the reason you've been protesting. It's like gay people -- they choose to be gay not because they have to, but because they enjoy the abuse and the beatings.

Ah, compassionate conservatism - they fight the greiving moms, the war veterans, the 9/11 survivors, the Parkinson's disease sufferers, and the AARP. It takes a special kind of courage, but that's just how they roll.

Anyway Cindy, one day this will all be over. I'd say we can have a good laugh over it then, but it will be over because the nuclear winter will forstall any mass communication for a few hundred years, and then we'll have all forgotten politics and be fighting each other based on skin color and religion, like it's supposed to be.

(Extra bitter today - sorry, bad coffee.)

Cindy Sheehan is what happens when an average person, of average intellegence and minimal real charisma, but with one passionate idea, gets in over her head.

Cindy Sheehan is George Bush's opposite number, except instead of Wolfowitzes and Cheneys craftily guiding her she had far-left whack jobs telling her that hanging with Hugo Chavez was a smashing idea.

Cindy Sheehan is your mom in show biz.

Point taken. It's a tribute to the Idea itself that someone like CS got as far as she did with it.
