Camp Apathy

Via CBS News:

Ten days into the anti-war seige of President Bush's driveway in Crawford, TX, news photographers are reduced to taking pictures of other news photographers taking pictures of a protestor taking pictures of them.

One begins to wonder just how long an ADD-afflicted media wll be able to drag this one out.

Update: Welcome Instapundit readers. We've got at least one more Crawford protestor photo (courtesy of IMAO) that you might want to see before you head for the front page.

The news coming out of there is riveting. I hope they're putting out hourly updates - need to see who's photographing who.

The excitement is unbearable. I wouldn't miss a minute of it. Any minute, we could see
news photographers taking pictures of other news photographers taking pictures of other news photographers taking pictures of...well, you get the picture...

Update: Ms. Sheehan is scheduled to appear on television news stations sometime in the next 10 minutes (at any given moment). It is widely believed that she thinks war is wrong, and that she does not think fondly of President Bush.

Mind you, that's a counter-protester in the photo taking a photo of the photographer, so we can assume that even the idea of taking photos of photographers taking photos of protesters taking photos of them has lost appeal.

If,say, Mindy Sheehan, Cindy's Conservative cousin, had lost a daughter to suicide after the daughter had had an abortion, would The MSM cover Mindy's protest in front of Planned Parenthood HQ?

Would Mindy even be mentioned in the MSM?

Inquiring Fair & Balanced Minds want to know!

I wonder if they tried a photog-congo line where they lined up taking pictures of each other.

Why did Cindy's son join?

Why did Cindy's son join?

To crush his enemies, see them driven before him, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

Why else?

Mindy Sheehan would be sued under the RICO Act if she protested in front of Planned Parenthood HQ.

...or Cindy could be pissed of that a group of people made up a bunch of lies that resulted in her son getting killed.

Are y'all too busy being glib and smart or just too stupid to understand the truth of it all.

not that the truth matters to moral cowards such as yourselves.

So John, let's overlook for a second the fact that you can't tell the difference between someone willfully lying and someone making a decision based on bad information that your own party leadership agreed with, and focus on the now.

Which is the more intelligent and moral course of action in Iraq:

To complete rebuilding a country of 25 million whose government and social structure we upended, gaining an ally in the process of spreading freedom, or;

To drop everything and run home, leaving Iraq in flux before the government is fully formed or the constitution established, jeopardizing ing their chance at freedom and earning their (deserved) hatred while destroying our credibility on the world stage for the forseeable future.

Which is it, John?
