Yesterday's Sheehan wackiness

This is the story that just gets sillier every day. Yesterday featured some idiot driving through the anti-war display of crosses bearing the names of dead soldiers. Remarkably, this resulted in the loony left finding religion, as it were, on the issue of desecration of crosses.

On the other hand, I’m sure the ACLU will be right down to defend the driver for his actions in the name of “freedom from religion.” After all, those were religious symbols on a public road, an unacceptable violation of the principle of separation of church and state.

As for Cindy herself, in a rambling appearance on Hardball last night she revealed that she would feel the same way about the Afghanistan portion of the war as she does the Iraq portion, and implies that she doesn’t believe that Osama bin Laden was responsible for 9/11 (given her past rhetoric, we can guess who she thinks is – hint: it starts with a ‘J’). Here’s an excerpt:

MATTHEWS: Can I ask you a tough question? A very tough question.

SHEEHAN: Yes.

MATTHEWS: All right. If your son had been killed in Afghanistan, would you have a different feeling?

SHEEHAN: I don't think so, Chris, because I believe that Afghanistan is almost the same thing. We're fighting terrorism. Or terrorists, we're saying. But they're not contained in a country. This is an ideology and not an enemy. And we know that Iraq, Iraq had no terrorism. They were no threat to the United States of America.

MATTHEWS: But Afghanistan was harboring, the Taliban was harboring al-Qaida which is the group that attacked us on 9/11.

SHEEHAN: Well then we should have gone after al-Qaida and maybe not after the country of Afghanistan.

MATTHEWS: But that's where they were being harbored. That's where they were headquartered. Shouldn't we go after their headquarters? Doesn't that make sense?

SHEEHAN: Well, but there were a lot of innocent people killed in that invasion, too. ... But I'm seeing that we're sending our ground troops in to invade countries where the entire country wasn't the problem. Especially Iraq. Iraq was no problem. And why do we send in invading armies to march into Afghanistan when we're looking for a select group of people in that country?

So I believe that our troops should be brought home out of both places where we're obviously not having any success in Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden is still on the loose and that's who they told us was responsible for 9/11.

The anti-war left couldn't have a better, or more appropriate, face than Mother Moonbat. The more deranged she becomes, the more people rally to the Right side while the Kos Kids and Err America can only come up with more extreme ways to try to propagandize her story and fantasize about how to exploit her even more.

After they took money illegally diverted from the poor children of New York, I think the Franken and the gang are now and forever "Air Enron."
