I haven't commented on the Cindy Sheehan story so far because it's been pretty low down on my "interest radar". It seems like the Left belives that it has found a figure to rally the anti-war movement around. I also discovered today (from my parents) that the TV news over here has been covering her too, in glowing terms.
For what it's worth here's my take on it- her son Casey volunteered to join the military knowing full well that he could be sent into harms way. As an adult he had the right to make that decision. Mrsa. Sheehan did get to meet Bush, but as she said at the time she did not give voice to her feelings because of the feelings of her son. I don't think that any soldier serving would want to think that his or her death would be used as it his is now, particularly by groups who support the "insurgency", the men who actually did kill Casey. And let's not forget that important point- Bush didn't kill her son, terrorists in Iraq did. If Cindy Sheehan really wanted to honour her fallen son, I do not believe she would use him in this way- because this does not seem to be what he would have wanted.
My final word on the matter (for now anyway) is to say this- go and read Greg Gutfeld's post on this. He catches the essence of her protest-
THE CHIEF BRODY SLAP (CBS) is a chief staple in an any liberal diet: a fiery mix of outrage, self-rightious indignation and condemnation delivered from a moral highground so lofty it gives you a nosebleed. The Brody Slap is predicated on the idea that you don't need a solution, only blame. Who needs a real alternative when you're already outraged? It's easy!
