You know it’s going bad for you when you get it from FR on the right and DU on the left. Good riddance, Cindy.
LOL. Another comic figure from the far Left tosses in the twoel. Pelosi next.
Anybody who really thinks she’s going to leave the limelight are just fooling themselves. She’ll be back.
byebye solong farewell
don’t let the door hitcha, etc.
Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." -Manuel II Paleologus
Her last sentences indicate she is going home and be a mother again to her surviving children. Of course, they are probably saying, “Ummmmm, no that’s all right, mom - like, you know, ummm, stay with the movement. We’ll have our people get in touch with your people.”
The MSM have what they wanted out of the foolish tool...a RAT-controlled Congress and with a decent hand for the 2008 White House. The power grab is well on the way to completion and she has served her prupose. Now its Bye Bye Cindy... No pricinples here, it all and only about grabbing power.
Flung away like a used condom, it's brief moment finished.
Only if she can find some MONEY somewhere. She has run out of money. That is why she is quitting and no one will continue to finance her activities. She is no longer useful to the "peace" movement. Stick a fork in her!
I cannot but feel profoundly sad for Cindy Sheehan. I do not dislike her (tho’ I dislike her message). There is clearly something wrong with her: grief at her terrible loss has made her unhinged. Her upstairs has done the bolt and she has garnered the sort of attention that most mentally balanced folks should run away from, screaming. The Media played her for a fool (for shame) because they could get a story out of her easily.
Now, what has she got left? Her son is still dead, the War on Terror continues, and her grief continues. The left have used her shamelessly, and the media have made her into their plaything. Now, to be tossed aside and relegated to irrelevance. I bet she hasn’t yet begun the Grief Cycle in any meaningful way.
She deserves our sympathy and prayers, and maybe a good dose of therapy and medication. Like I said, I just can’t bring myself to feel anything but sorrow for her.
Does that make me into a softie? I suppose it does. Kicking someone when they are down has never appealed to me.
Just before his limousine crossed over the Potomac River into Virginia, a man held up a sign saying, "Bring our troops home."
Dittos to that. Most of us knew she was a raving, howling moonbat, but she lost her son. The grief accentuated her moonbattiness.
Thank you for your son's and your sacrifice Ms Sheehan. Now please go from us in peace... may God help you overcome your sorrow and may you come to understand what the sacrifice your son really was about.
shes leaving because the left will no longer finance her travel or hotels. i feel pity for Cindy....loss of a son ...loss of meaning ...loss of reality. shakes head...and loss of memorable experiences with her living children...when they probably needed their mother most.
“I am going to take whatever I have left and go home,”
Boy that was some week-end buzz she was on.
Reminds me of the old Dan Hicks song, “How Can I Miss You When You Won’t Go Away?”.
first let me say eeeww
secondly, reconsider "brief moment" LOL
