Cindy Sheehan for Congress?

14 09 2007

I’ve noticed that Cindy Sheehan is back in the news. This woman is our Hanoi Jane of the 21st century. The poor woman is bereaved since the death of her GI son, and I can’t imagine the grief of a mother who has lost a son, but she has really fallen into the deep end of the pool on this one.

Not only has she become the number one shill for the left wing anti-war mob but she is now considering a run against Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the House of Representatives in the US Congress. Um, excuse me for asking this but Cindy, who the hell do you think you are? What has she done to offer anything to the progress of this great nation? I can think of a few things she has done to embarrass herself and her family.

Those on her side of the fence (or rather, in her wing of the asylum) see her as a willing martyr who has embodied their pet issue by taking upon herself the pain of personal loss. Well, the truth is that she is pissed off because her son got killed in the war. Not to be insensitive but she had nothing to do with taking upon herself this burden and pain of personal loss — it was handed to her. Her son lost his life fighting voluntarily for the freedoms of people around the world. Casey Sheehan is, in my opinion, a true American hero, and for his mother to turn his memory into an anti-war cry and a vendetta against a President who sent her son to foreign lands to fight is shameful at best. He was a volunteer in an all volunteer army. Had he come back a decorated war hero I’m sure this woman would have been a proud supporter of our troops and the President for giving her son the opportunity to achieve something noble. Unfortunately he was a casualty of war, which for many is just as noble.

For this woman to believe she is worthy of a congressional seat is another example of her struggle with reality. The American spirit is not one that embraces grief and that runs from a fight because of pain of personal loss. The American spirit is one of resolve, strength and courage to stand up in the face of adversity and move forward in the face of a challenge to conquer and destroy the cancer that enters into our society and decays our liberty and freedom. Our country needs leaders who are steady and strong, who have integrity and who are guided by their moral compasses and who are not persuaded by the seductive voices of emotion. Our country is in desperate need of leaders who embody the American spirit.

Tomorrow, September 15th 2007, our lady of sorrows can be seen participating in her latest anti-war demonstration organized by the group Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER). This rally and march on Washington will culminate in a “die-in” in front of the US Capitol.

If Cindy Sheehan runs for congress, the only appropriate campaign slogan I can think of for her would be “Blame America First”.
