Cindy Sheehan Watch II

By Michael Fumento

Saint Cindy Sheehan, martyr by proxy, is still trying to stretch her 15 minutes of fame and she is up to 4,200 hits on Google News. Problem is, as sympathetic as the MSM is to her cause they're just plumb running out of new things to say about her. Maybe they're also getting the idea that readers are getting tired of the nonsense. In any event, the more we hear the less sympathetic she becomes.

Here are some excerpts of a speech she gave to Veterans for Peace at Any Price just before setting off for those 15 minutes:

  • Then we have this lying bastard, George Bush, taking a 5-week vacation in a time of war.
  • So anyway that filth-spewer and warmonger, George Bush . . .
  • You tell me my son died to spread the cancer of Pax Americana, imperialism in the Middle East.
  • The Iraqi people aren't freer, they're much worse off than before you meddled in their country.
  • You get America out of Iraq, you get Israel out of Palestine
  • And if you think I won't say bullshit to the President, I say move on, cuz I'll say what's on my mind.
  • Another thing that I'm doing is -- my son was killed in 2004, so I'm not paying my taxes for 2004. (Um, I wouldn't try that Cindy.)
  • When I was growing up, it was Communists. Now it's terrorists. So you always have to have somebody to fight and be afraid of, so the war machine can build more bombs, guns, and bullets and everything.
  • I got an e-mail the other day and it said, "Cindy, if you didn't use so much profanity there's people on the fence' that get offended" And you know what I said? "You know what? You know what, god-damn-it? How, in the world is anybody still sitting on that fence'?"

And then there was this:

  • I don't want him to exploit the honor of my son . . .

No, that's your job; right Cindy?

We've all come into the late-summer dog days of August, when everyone awaits a break in the sweltering heat and begins to think of the crispness of the autumn to come. If President Bush believed that he could escape the Washington media by building h... [Read More]
