Sheehan Triumphs! She is Arrested
A Smiling Sheehan Enjoying Her Little-Publicized Arrest
Harebrained Moonbat Cindy Sheehan, famed for cynically exploiting her son's death in Iraq to advance her extreme political agenda, gained a public relations victory today (photo). An arrest! An AP story on her PR triumph led off Yahoo news today.
After sitting down in front of the White House and thereby inviting arrest (the cops obliged), "She stood up and was led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, 'The whole world is watching.'" Yeah. That was the point, right?
Let's see how the other yahoos in the media handle this publicity stunt. Will they treat this idiot with the contempt she deserves, or play into her hands? We shall see. It will be interesting to see if the media, particularly the daily edition of Counterpunch (a/k/a the New York Times) picks up this quote from the AP story:
"I would like to say to Cindy Sheehan and her supporters don't be a group of unthinking lemmings. It's not pretty," said Mitzy Kenny of Ridgeley, W.Va., whose husband died in Iraq last year. The anti-war demonstrations "can affect the war in a really negative way. It gives the enemy hope."
