Wanted: Head Moonbat in Charge
Cindy Sheehan finally gets it. She has "resigned" as the face of the American "peace"movement after being confronted by political reality. She helped the Democrats get elected to end the war in Iraq, but now that the Democrats control Congress nothing has changed. The Democrats and Republicans are not so different after all.
When Sheehan first took on Bush, she was a darling of the liberal left. "However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the 'left' started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used," she wrote in the diary.Cindy Sheehan has all along been just a useful idiot of the Democrats, someone any political hack would derisively label a "true believer," someone helpful to the party, but no one you want anywhere near the controls. It's all about winning elections. Now she understands this.
She said she sacrificed a 29-year marriage and endured threats to put all her energy into stopping the war. What she found, she wrote, was a movement "that often puts personal egos above peace and human life."
