DiFi does well to kowtow to Cindy-babes on the filibuster issue.

Clearly, Sheehan is the one wearing the pants in the family, and Feinstein better not forget it!

Sheehan is scheduled to return from Venezuela on Monday and will travel to the nation's capital to take part in an alternative State of the Union event.

What the heck is that all about?

It's the liberal bash fest. They're not only going to trash republicans, they're going to cannibalize their own. Or I can only hope!

Cindy Who?

This fall I was talking to several of the moms whose daughters are on my daughters soccer team and I brought up Cindy Sheehan. Only out of six ladies knew who she was! I was stunned, comforted but none the less stunned.

For the Love of God, Can't you Make Him Stop? Recently, it was revealed that George only interacts with four people: Laura, Condi, Karen Hughes and his Mom. His Mom, the Ice Queen who didn't want her "pretty mind" burdened with the images of flag draped coffins coming home, lives in Houston. On President's Day, (Feb. 20) we will be demonstrating in front of her house to implore her to forget about the obscene profits that her family and their friends are making off of this occupation and to beg her to finally do the right thing and make her son stop this insane war OF terror against the world.

Now this pi$$e$ me off. Why bring his mother into this?

That's right. Feinstein changed her mind today and will fiibuster. Funny that, following directly on the heels of Cindy Sheehan's threat to run against her. Unbelievabley, she see's Cindy as a threat, because all of her constituents are whackos just like Cindy. So DiFi caves. What a whuuusss.

I haven't read anything here on FR or seen anything on Fox about "an alternative State of the Union event"..

But, it doesn't surprise me that they will have one...and if we are lucky, we will be able to find Kerry, Hillary, and others there...if they follow through on the threat to boycott the SOTU address..

It's an alternative State of the Union for those living in an alternative universe. Kinda like Arianna Huffinton's Shadow Convention...it was there but really undefined.

This is what I want to know: Just who is paying for shipping her all across the globe? Let me see - Crawford to Washington to Argentina back to the States now off to Venezuela. With extensive tours of both the United States and Europe thrown in as well!

Somewhere in all this "grassroots protesting" I sense funds being slipped in by the DNC.

Where is Cindy Sheehan getting the money to do all the traveling she's doing? The woman has used up all the sympathy she's due, and it's time now for her to shut up and get out of the public's eye. She has nothing to recommend her as a spokesperson for anything or anyone. I see no reason for the media to report on her....she's used her 15 minutes of fame in a shameful and disgusting way.

Cindy Beanbag is showing her true colors. What does the Alito nomination have to do with her son Casey. You know Cindy, the son that your life revolves around to get some "justice" for?

Your son died a hero to this nation for a noble cause. You lady, are just a pathetic simp that has disgraced his memory in your own self centered, vain attempt at notoriety for yourself.

loved this comment on Kos:

" went to DC in Sept... I just don't want to get in the way because I definitely don't have any "skin in the game" so to speak.

This weekend I went home and I was talking to my mom about my brother - who is 20 and making one big fat mess of his life. He's been convicted of felony marijuana charges, kicked out of college, and he's gotten obese. She said "He is exactly the sort of kid who would really benefit from the military, except we're in a war we don't believe in." She's right, too. The military would be great for him. Just not under this president.

Hate Bush? Take revenge!"

Yep..they think the military is a social program for pot smoking, college drop out fat asses...good grief. They have no idea of the kind of men in our military. God help us if these people ever get in charge again.

Say what you want about Feinstein, Sheehan actually makes her look rather reasonable. Sheehan jumped the shark about three months ago. Beyond that point she became a joke to everyone but herself and some of the wildest scarey eyed marxists on the planet.
