CRAWFORD, Tex., Nov. 26 -- Dancing to reggae music and hugging her supporters, Cindy Sheehan led an anti-Iraq war rally Saturday at a one-acre campsite adjoining the ranch where President Bush is spending his holiday weekend.
As in August, when she galvanized attention and made headlines for days with similar protests, there were songs and speeches and demonstrators holding signs reading "Bring the Troops Home" near the main entrance of the 1,600-acre ranch where Bush has been vacationing since Tuesday.
Unlike then, when hundreds came from all over the country for major events at the two campsites named after Sheehan's son, who was killed in Iraq, Sheehan found herself addressing a crowd of only about 100 Saturday afternoon.

Is that the autograph line? Or is it the kisses for a dollar line? Oh, everyone was at mean ole Wal Mart fighting for lap top computers. That is why she is all alone. No longer important. Her 17 minutes of fame (flame) burned out.
She is so over. Go home Cindy, and take care of your aging mother. What a creep.
The picture in this thread will crack you all up! Poor little Cindy! ROFL!
"when she galvanized attention and made headlines for days"
Once again the media reporting on itself. 1600 people in a nation of nearly 300 million protesting anything is a non-story, unless the left-dominated media makes it one. Shame on the declining Fox News for joining the party
The vast majority of Americans looked at the disgusting Sheehan show either disdain or indifference.
I'll bet that a significant portion of the "crowd of only about 100" is the media pool.
I found this article to be particularly slanted (what's new about that--LOL!), but I truly believe that it's over for this bunch of crazies. I don't think even the MSM can revive this has-been and her silly followers.
LOL. What if you gave a book signing/war protest and nobody much came. LOL. Where were the DUers, at home eating turkey and driving their families nuts?
Gee...that's too bad.
LGF has some even better pics. Rows and rows and rows of empty seats!
It's actually a link to Sweetness and Light:
You'll laugh your butts off!
Remember Martha Burk? The lady who protested against the Masters Golf Tournament here in Augusta? She ended up with 17 -- 17 -- fellow protestors on the big day and dropped out of sight like a stone notwithstanding the efforts of the MSM, especially the NY Times, to make a big deal out of it. Cindy, meet Martha; Martha, welcome Cindy to the losers club.
I am highly offended by this idiot peace creep making political capital out of her dead son. Her husband divorced her, evidently because of her disrespect for their son's sacrifice.
All alone, I'm so all alone
There is no one else but me
Sitting in my haute couture
Not even one damn sig-na-ture
I'm all alone, hope I don't snap
Eating Iraq pap that tastes like crap
I'm all alone with smelly Brahma bulls
Alone with cameramen and fools
I'm all alone, no telephone
All alone and feelin' blue
Wond'ring where are all my fans
And if they're all alone and crazy, too
I guess making money off your son's death doesn't inspire as many people as the media led us to believe.
Little Green Footballs links to Sweetness and Light. Very cool! http://www.littlegreenfootballs.com/weblog/weblog.php
If you go to the site I suggested, you'll see that not only were there flags, but blue star helium balloons too!
