She walks away from the anti-American movement. It was fun til the Left turned on her.

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.

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.

AP has found Cindy's replacement. From an AP article in today's newspaper:

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.

Its normal to mourn the loss of a loved one and then to build a new relationship with them that allows one to recognize they moved on and yet love is stronger than the grave. Our loved ones watch over us and care for us after they're gone. Cindy Sheehan took a normal human feeling and let it run morbid to the point it consumed her life. Most of us don't have that luxury and once we come to terms with a loss we begin to be happy for ourselves again because the people we lost who love us know we would want them to be happy were we in their place; so they want us to be happy and enjoy life because its short and our life is as precious as theirs was in the sight of God. Nothing can ever sever us from their love or from the love of our God, our True Father. Amen.

At least she finally figured out she was a tool for the rabid left who care only about their “HATE BUSH” agenda - and like her, the war is only used as a weapon in that fight.

Well Cindy shouldn't feel too bad. She succeeded in stretching her 15 minutes over several years, which is more than most people manage to do.

I hope she recedes into obscurity with more grace than some--that "reporter" who exposed the Watergate scandal, for example, whatzizname...still struggling to resuscitate his.

She deserves our sympathy and prayers

In WWII she would have been shot as a traitor. She has spit on her son's memory, embraced our enemies and raised the moral of those who are killing our troops and planning our destruction. She deserves nothing but our contempt. If you wish to give her your sympathy and prayers as a gift, that is fine. But she does not deserve them. In order to deserve something your must have earned it.

My sympathy for the loss of her son diminished greatly when I saw how she purposefully dishonored his service to the country he died for. I consider her at best a badly deluded attention freak willing to sully her dead son's memory for 15 minutes of fame.

I remember back, oh, 6 months or so ago when she was threatening to torpedo Hillary's candidacy if Hillary didn't vote to de-fund the war. Cindy's overblown sense of self-importance was as hilarious as her funding was shadowy.

Now she's lost her sponsor, apparently, and she wants to get away with as much of her ill-gotten gains as she can. I have only one thing to say to her:

Goodbye.

In WW-II you Yanks also interned AMERICAN CITIZENS of Japanese descent for no good reason aside from their ancestry. I guess that was the right thing to do too, ay?
And in WW-II you ran a segregated Armed Forces, denying blacks the right to serve as equals. That too was a good idea, ay? The US should do that today, d'ya think?

> She has spit on her son's memory, embraced our enemies and raised the moral of those who are killing our troops and planning our destruction.

Crikey, maybe don't be such a drama queen! She has done nothing of the sort, and I defy you to prove otherwise. One photo of Cindy with Bin Laden in flagrente delecto in a love-lorn embrace would be sufficient to prove your case. Or even hawking a greenie at her son's gravemarker would do the trick.

And surely you mean "morale" (ie espirit de corps) rather than "moral" (sense of right and wrong) because nothing could raise the sense of morals of an Enemy with no concept of Morality.

If the enemy feels happier because of Cindy Sheehan's activities then they are truly Pathetic because the rest of us saw them for what they were: the distraught acts of a woman no longer in full charge of her faculties.

At very best she has been a sideshow act, a clown and a useful idiot to be manipulated by the media and by the Left for reasons that are hardly noble. She is unlike Jane Fonda because Jane had no excuse for her duplicity.

> She deserves nothing but our contempt.

You deserve nothing but our contempt.

> If you wish to give her your sympathy and prayers as a gift, that is fine. But she does not deserve them. In order to deserve something your must have earned it.

I'd say giving and losing a son to the greater cause of Freedom entitles her to prayers and sympathy. That her sacrifice has caused her to suffer what would appear to be a serious mental meltdown is even more tragic still. One look at her could tell even the dimmest wit that all is not right upstairs with Cindy. She needs professional help.

She feels no more pain than the hundreds of other mothers who have lost sons in war and chose not to trash their country and its president with leftist drivel. Lenin called them useful idiots when he talked of the capitalist that supported his lunatic cause. I’m sure that is exactly what the democrats think of this sad woman.

I agree. That said, I believe hers is not a rational choice: there is clearly something wrong upstairs with her. IMO that much becomes really evident each time she talks or presents on camera: just look at her and it is difficult not to conclude she’s a couple bottles short a dozen. In my books, that equates to diminished responsibility.

Maybe that *does* make me a softie. Like I said, I see no value in nor get any pleasure from kicking someone when they are down.

I do believe she has become unglued by it all, and manipulated by the media and the left for their own cynical purposes. No rational being would do as Cindy has done.

> Lenin called them useful idiots when he talked of the capitalist that supported his lunatic cause. I’m sure that is exactly what the democrats think of this sad woman.

I too feel sorry for this pathetic soul. I don’t however think she is as nuts as you seem to believe,judging by this article she seems to make comprehensive statements about her reasons for leaving the scene. I think she took advantage of her sons death to advance the lefts’ cause. I also believe she advanced accusations she knew not to be true to gain the admiration of of those same people. I know when the 2006 elections were over she disappeared fast.

You and I would agree that her son died for something much more precious than *nothing*. And we would struggle to see her rationale: because we are “normal”, well-adjusted folk with a sense of values.

There is nothing “normal” about Cindy Sheehan. That she sees “nothing” in his sacrifice indicates to me that she is far from well.

> That is why she is beneath contempt and will always be.

Might as well hold in contempt somebody with brain damage. I’m not defending her actions — they were reprehensible — but I really struggle to see the value that can be obtained from holding in contempt somebody whose grief has made her lose all sense of proportion and made her go unglued. I say again, I think she is in need of professional help: lots of it.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is now well-recognized as being something soldiers get when under fire. It used to be in WW-I they’d shoot soldiers with what would now be diagnosed as PTSD.

Who’s to say Cindy Sheehan isn’t suffering something similar? I’d say she probably is: one look at her tells me she is probably as mad as a meat-ax. She needs prayers and help and sympathy: you know, the finer sentiments that make our Civilization just a bit more liveable than the Taliban’s.

The Media played her for a fool (for shame) because they could get a story out of her easily.

That's the thing. I too feel for her loss, as anyone who has lost a child would. But instead of dealing with her grief, she allowed it to turn to hatred of George Bush, and this allowed her to be used as a tool of the forces that oppose Bush and this country and freedom in the world as a whole. Just like the widows of those lost in the 9/11 attacks, if she chooses to enter the political arena and use her grief to damage the party in power, she is then subject to political criticism. At that point, one's loss does not automatically confer immunity from counter-arguments. Of the many thousands of families who have lost loved ones in armed conflicts, the vast majority have found non-political ways to deal with and express their grief. Cindy Sheehan would have been better served herself, as well as honoring the memory of her son, if she had chosen a more constructive and healthy outlet for her grief.

I agree with you. She has sown to the wind and is reaping the whirlwind as a result of her choices. And there is perhaps some justice to that.

I find more reprehensible the cynical manipulation of Cindy Sheehan by the media and by the left: they, at least, were in full command of their faculties, they knew what they were doing, and they rode the Cindy bandwagon for their own cynical ends for as long as it suited them to do so.

Cindy Sheehan at least has some modicum of excuse: grief has made her upstairs do the bolt. The media and the left have no such excuse. Theirs was a cold-blooded deliberate act, whereas I believe her motivations are fair game for debate.

Grieving Mums should sometimes be cut some slack. Media and Politicians should never.

She came to realize the Democrats were only her friends as long as she attacked Republicans, and cared no more about ending the war than anyone else.... Good for her, sad that it took her 2 years to figure out the obvious... that she was useful idiot for the left... but she did figure it out, better late than never I suppose.
