Cindy, Go Home Now

Cindy Sheehan is a grieving mother. But she has turned that grief into something bitter that has tried to make people forget that her son, Casey Sheehan, fought for his country proudly and that he died believing that his country was worth fighting and dying for. Cindy Sheehan has made the statement that our country is not worth dying for. Cindy, our country is worth dying for and your son believed in his country. Go home and leave him in peace.

CJ at Soldier's Prespective has a link to a great video that shows her hypocrisy and her grandstanding.

Watch this video from Sparks From the Anvil.

She is a total disgrace. I can't recal someone ever so blatently using the death of a loved one for (attempted) political gain.

Seawitch,
For some reasonI couldn't view the video.
Nobody seems to care about Cindy anymore.
I a year she will be forgotten entirely.

I think she has turned into a joke and the more she is on the front page, the better for Republicans and Bush. Unfortunately, I think the media have recognized that too, and stopped covering her.

tran,

She's pathtic. I believe that groups like Move America Forward, milbloggers, and Free Republicans helped got the message out that Sheehan was not the only grieving mother out there and they objected to some of the things she was saying. Unlike Maureen Dowd, they said she was NOT the absolute moral authority.

Thanks for the link up, Seawitch.

felis, make sure you have the latest version of Macromedia flash installed. Beyond that, sometimes the host site is temporarily under maintenance, or perhaps your connection is too slow. I've noticed that people on dial-up tend to have a lot of trouble with these videos.

And i agree with tran, that I think she's been good for Repubicans more than anything else by her radical statements and alignment with the likes of Michael Moore and the Moveon crowd. It went beyond that of a griefing mother looking for answers.

wordsmith,

You're welcome and she has gone beyond a grieving mother.
