I hope the Move America Forward folks have planned to inform every newspaper, radio and TV station in each city / state on the caravan route. This is a huge opportunity for some publicity. I'll take care of all the radio, TV and newspapers here in Denver.

I LOVE it! Does Cindy Sheehan, the modern day Jane Fonda think that we are going to stand idely by while she gives aid and comfort to the enemy? Her and her marxist controlled peace rally (which is really a hate America rally) are about to meet their match. Here we come Cindy.......so stand by!

Hey Doug,
This sounds like something right up your ally.
I'm thinking something along the lines of:
"You don't speak for me, Cindy Sheehan" to the tune of "Don't Cry for me Argentina"

Who knows, could become the theme song for this rally.

I just donated also - this seems like a much smarter and healthier approach that attacking Sheehan personally - not that she doesn't deserve it - it's just that this way is smarter.

My only reservation - I really feel for the people that live in Crawford. But if there is going to be so much coordinated effort to try to force us to pull out of Iraq with the job not done then there has to be a response.

I wonder if these people consider for a second that if we just up and pull out that every Iraqi who has worked with us for democracy will likely be slaughtered.

I was coming up with some good lines for "You Don't Speak for me, Cindy Sheehan", but then got to thinking maybe it would be better to do something honoring Casey, maybe call it "The Ballad of Casey Sheehan".

Whatcha think, Doug?

By the way, you were great on Tony yesterday. He's seems to really enjoy hearing from you.

"Move America Forward will be conducting the “You Don’t Speak for Me, Cindy”

I strongly suspect she does not speak for her own son whose death she has, along with enormous help from the MSM and fringe Liberal Orgs, used as the vehicle to give meaning to what would appear to have been her otherwise pointless, unhappy life.

Has anyone seen any reporting on her relationship with her warrior son? I haven't but would not be surprised if his views on the War, the President, his duty and his sacrifice are/were in direct opposition to what she is shouting down in Crawford.

The reaction of the extended family and, most notably, her husband's divorce filing gives a clue. She is besmirching her son's reputation, his sacrifice and his overall honor by placing what I believe to be false words in his mouth, words which he cannot refute. A truly disgusting action on her part.

I support the Caravan and hope it succeeds in putting the lie to this woman's despicable and damaging behavior.

I don't havew a loved one serving but I would like to have organized counter demonstrations. I just saw in two of my local papaers that MoveOn sponsored Nationwide protests yesterdya. (2) of our local town papers gave fron page news to the coverage..and I have written letters to the editors of both papers. We need to speak with a muh louder voice, people. The morons were out in force last night. It is frightening.

"The morons were out in force last night."

Not much of a force in our area. There were three gatherings, the largest had about 100 people. In a metropolitan area of about 2.5 million people.

I went back to the news item and found I made a mistake. There were more than 300 at the biggest rally. FreeRepublic was mentioned at the end of the article as follows:

'Some critics say Sheehan is exploiting her son's death to promote a left-wing agenda. They say scores of Americans, including relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq, support Bush and his plans to keep troops there.

FreeRepublic.com holds rallies to support troops and to counter anti-war demonstrations.

"For us, the organizers of the vigil are phony-baloney, betraying the sacrifices that those men and women make in Iraq, by demanding that we pull our troops out now and leave Iraq to go to hell," said Kristinn Taylor, co-leader of the group's Washington chapter. "This is a publicity stunt." '

Here's the link to the column:
