Yep. If Sheehan will really run against Pelosi I’d send Sheehan 10 bucks except I wouldn’t want Fidel to get my name as a likely friend.
Sounds like something Baghdad Bob would say.
Wow! Sounds like some flavors of conservatism.
If Cindy Shaheen were elected to Congress, she would be an embarrassment to her own party and a publicity boon to conservatives. All that bad press that we could post!
This guy seems to be wetting his pants because Rush mentioned his article. Calling Cindy sympathetic and pathetic does not = love in my book.
The only hope? Geez.
Sheehan was a useful idiot of the left, no more, no less, all of the visits she took to see Cahvez, Hug Jesse Jackson, covort with Senators were merely extraction of whatever political capital that could be sucked from her husk.
Now, even the Boyz at Kos have thrown her overboard in favor of Hilliary Q&A’s.
It is my opinion that no matter how poorly the Iraq War is polling, the more the Dem candidates talk, the more Conservatives and Moderates will vote “R” as long as they are pallatable to their psyches.
“Oh, so you didn’t like Shamnesty? Check out Hilliary’s plans and votes”
Really, so you pay too much in taxes? All of the Democrat candidates for Prez want tax hikes, and the Dem house wants to ley Tax relief” slip into the sunset..”
Second Amendment getting you down?
No worries, there is a new rifle ban on the way.
Keep talking Dhimis, just keep talking....
This guy really powerfully doesn’t get it with regard to US politics.
Rush’s reference to the “cruelty” of the left is absolutely true and consistent. They do eat their own young if it serves the Party.
And the whole lot of them have gotten completely sidetracked by their wacko elements.
There is truth there, but the political fact is that the "Sheehanite Left" is who all the Democrat contenders for the presidency are pandering to. Those wing nuts will select their candidate in 2008.
Out political system isn't broken, but the Primary system sure as hell is broken. There is something to be recommended to the old 'smokey back rooms' that existed before the 60s revolution.
Quite the contrary - 2008 is our election to win so long as we stay united. More people in this country, and specifically more voters choose Republicans (notable exceptions being the ballot stuffers, illegal aliens and the dead).
This is questionable. What has Pelosi actually enacted that is "real change"? An increase in the minimum wage. Earmark reform? Gone. Most ethical Congress ever. Laughable. What else did they run on? Republicans are evil and George Bush is incompetent. Pelosi has no influence on either of these items. So, we're left with what?
Pelosi and Sheehan are birds of a feather, malignant narcissists.
“Republicans are in disarray, and the likelihood of a Democrat taking possession of the White House at the 2008 election seems to increase by the day.”
I disagree. Conservatives are humble and speak with their votes.
Cindy is a wacko and Rush was not really defending her. In fact, I agree with the Guardian healdine.
But go Cindy. I hope she puts a major dent in Pelousy.
Personally, I think Rush read my blog:
The Defense of Cindy Sheehan
I’m going to try to hold the bile down as I write this. I might not have any luck and have to end this early though.
That said, ideologically Cindy Sheehan is wrong. I’m not going to sit here and apologize first because her son died. She loves to wave around the death of Casey. She brings it up in EVERY SINGLE PUBLIC STATEMENT SHE MAKES. How does the death of her son prove that taxes need to be raised? How does the death of her son prove that the government should be in charge of health care? How does the death of her son make her right on any stupid issue she’s come out in favor of? The death of her son doesn’t even prove that the war in Iraq is wrong.
Okay - I’m sorry you’re wrong (and not smart enough to see it.)
But just because this woman is an idiot that doesn’t mean it’s okay for the left to take advantage of the woman (which is exactly what they did.) According to the biographies I’m reading, the woman was born in 1957 and her life started in 2004 with the death of her son. How strange that a modern day figure has absolutely no notes on her past anywhere. Although it’s not noted anywhere I can find, I do believe that Sheehan was featured in Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 9-11”. A very strange credit in the Internet Movie Database would seem to confirm this. Although it gives a short bio of Sheehan there, it lists no acting credits at all.
Thus Sheehan just emerged out of thin air. She walks around talking about how her son died in war in Iraq - but so what? Thousands of mothers and fathers have lost their kids Iraq. Why did Sheehan rise to the top to become a celebrity?
The short answer is that she’s a left wing construct. Libs saw a woman who is obviously insane with grief and instead of dropping the money to get the woman a shrink, they spent it giving her a platform to make a circus of herself. How in the hell does a woman who lists her occupation as “Housewife” have millions of dollars to organize protests, buy five acres of land in Texas for thousands of dollars and party with Movie Stars? How does a nobody get a book deal, her own stage play and a movie deal?
Answer: she’s a useful idiot. Much like that girl in high school that all the football players had sex with - she wasn’t popular, they just knew they could put her on display and she’d go along with it.
And thus is Cindy Sheehan. As long as the left had someone out there willing to embarrass themselves life was good - especially since the left was out of power. Someone had to go out there and say the things libs think but would never dare say (like the war in Iraq is really a war for Israel.)
But now there’s a problem: Democrats and Libs are back in power. Now instead of being a face of the movement, Sheehan is more like the embarrassing aunt. They don’t want Sheehan to say what they all think anymore (lest it ruin their chances in the next election.)
Case and point: on July 3, 2007 Sheehan announced that if Pelosi doesn’t draw up articles of impeachment by the end of July, she would run against her in the next election.
And the firestorm began. So far, Sheehan has been “Warned” about posting on the lefty site DailyKos. Apparently Kos is (now) a Democrat Hack site that only supports Dems. Funny, cause I remember Lieberman about this time last year, was Kos’ public enemy #1 since he supported the war. It seems like I also remember the Kossacks supporting Sheehan’s speeches to the Communists, the Socialists, the Venezuelans who support Hugo Chavez, etc. Frankenstein’s monster is free to rampage the peasant village, just don’t let her back in when she runs back to the castle.
So the moral of the story is “Threaten OUR power and you’re out.” I can’t help but feel sorry for the woman. She’s too intellectually vacant to see what they were doing. This makes even madder at the left. But I’m not surprised. Their power means everything to them - and people are just tools to an end like any other rotten movement.
The Nazis had their “Night of the Long Knives” where they massacred all their radicals. Seems that the left is having theirs as well.
"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 Palelologus
Cindy Sheehan is repeating what she has heard elsewhere, but it is true:
The Democrats ARE the Party of Slavery (POS).
They were the POS before the Civil War.
They were the POS during the Civil War.
They were the POS after the Civil War.
They were the POS with Jim Crow.
They were the POS opposing civil rights.
They were the POS with George Wallace.
They are the POS advocating the slavery of welfare dependence.
Sheehan doesn't represent a "brand", she has never had a clue how the government works, that's how the left was able to use her and why she is morphing her position as see learns more.
