I know I'm going to piss a lot of people off, but...

... Aren't we carrying this Cindy Sheehan thing just a little too far?Don't get me wrong. I truly feel for her. I'm so sorry she had to lose her son in this illegal war in Iraq that our administration is still so hellbent on selling. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose your only child. I wouldn't WANT to even imagine it, as I have one child myself.
Now the poor woman has subjected herself to scrutiny from the likes of Bill O'Liely and Michelle Malkin. I can't imagine how such hurtful lies and rhetoric could be harming her psyche.
Now the public has to know all about her husband filing for divorce. That's none of our business. What marriage could take the stress of losing a child? I don't know that mine could, and I love my husband dearly. But people deal with losses in different ways, and perhaps their ways conflicted with each other.
Then, we have some dumbass shit-for-brains run over the white wooden crosses that represent our fallen troops with his pickup truck. (Funny how it HAD to be a pickup truck...)
Let's face it. Geedubya is NEVER going to meet with Mrs. Sheehan. He doesn't have the compassion or the guts to do it.
And while I admire Mrs. Sheehan's stick-to-it attitude, perhaps she could do more good meeting with representatives and senators, starting letter-writing campaigns, or perhaps using her status to try to obtain information from those in the know that could lead to the end of this war and the possible indictment of members of this administration.
Living in a ditch, or on a pig farm, or wherever she is staying, is not sending a message to Geedubya. It hasn't sent a message to me, because I'm already on her side. The mainstream media is treating her as a spectacle, not as a true news story. Members of her family are speaking out against her. Some dumb fuck farmer blasted his shotgun, and some other son-of-a-bitch ran over those white crosses.
Cindy, I think it's time for you to go home. It's obvious that you're an inspiring person; why don't you use that spark you have to really organize something that can do some good for this country? I'm sure Casey would be proud of you. (I'm sure he is already proud of you, by the way.)
