Saint Cindy to quit stalking George Bush

The underwear gnomes have left Crawford Texas.

At least she's finally admitting to being an Attention Whore.

I have spent every available cent I got from the money a "grateful" country gave me when they killed my son and every penny that I have received in speaking or book fees since then. I have sacrificed a 29 year marriage and have traveled for extended periods of time away from Casey’s brother and sisters and my health has suffered and my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings. I have been called every despicable name that small minds can think of and have had my life threatened many times. ...

I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost. I will try to maintain and nurture some very positive relationships that I have found in the journey that I was forced into when Casey died and try to repair some of the ones that have fallen apart since I began this single-minded crusade to try and change a paradigm that is now, I am afraid, carved in immovable, unbendable and rigidly mendacious marble.

Let's just hope that she's gone through "the change" so we don't end up with any little peace warriors running around as Saint Cindy and Father Hugo continue to nurture their relationship.

The cabby said he recognized my girly by the back of her head.

I feel sorry for her in that she got sucked in by the Left to promote their agenda and is now being dropped like a hot potato.

I don't disagree, Mike, but you can't ignore the ugly things the right wing said about her. Liddy called her an anti-Semite because she referred to the culpability of the neocons, which Liddy said was "code for Jew."

This woman has been ill-used by left and right and I find it disgusting.

When we resort to using Gold Star mothers for political advantage, it is a shame for our country.

I saw a mother during Vietnam attack the Lieutenant in charge of the honor guard, screaming at him, saying he had killed her son, and he stood there and took it, knowing she was bereft and because of her grief, not responsible for the things she was saying.

When Sheehan took her grief public, we all should have turned our heads. It is a dark time for our nation that we did not.

She will not be having any more children she had a hystorectomy, remember she buried her uterus in Texas. Good Riddance!
