A happy Tuesday to all! It is a beautiful global warming as caused by natural forces day here in the USA, with mostly sunny skies across the country. Of course, it is not so beautiful for Cindy Sheehan, she of "absolute moral authority." She is learning an ugly lesson regarding the Democrat Party and their nutroots base
(CNSNews.com) – Cindy Sheehan says she is resigning as the "face" of the American anti-war movement.
In a letter posted on a liberal website Monday, Sheehan complained about the smears and hatred directed at her by liberals since she renounced her ties to the Democratic Party.
"Being called an ‘attention whore’ and being told ‘good riddance’ are some of the more milder rebukes [sic]," Sheehan wrote in a long letter posted on the DailyKos blog.
"I have come to some heartbreaking conclusions this Memorial Day Morning," Sheehan wrote.
She said she has reluctantly concluded that "I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party."
Sheehan also noted that while conservatives "slandered and libeled" her as a "tool of the Democratic Party," liberals did the same thing — "when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I help the Republican Party."
Well, Cindy, that is what happens when you jump onto the national political stage by calling the president the worst terrorist on Earth, cavort with America haters like Hugo Chavez, and align yourself with the most extremist parts of the Democrat party, who also are the ones that seem to run the party. You will catch tons of heat. And, while those on the Right were certainly able to throw some good excrement at you, those on the Left have perfected the art.
At the moment, there are love fests for St. Cindy, America’s Mom, etc, and gag me with a spoon, going on across the Left side of the ‘Net, with some actually realizing it was the site they frequent that was part of the smear. Shame. But, Cindy, a piece of advice if you are reading the comments: do not expect them to last if you continue to take on the Democrat Party. It will turn ugly yet again.
"Casey died for a country which cares more about who will be the next American Idol than how many people will be killed in the next few months while Democrats and Republicans play politics with human lives. It is so painful to me to know that I bought into this system for so many years and Casey paid the price for that allegiance. I failed my boy and that hurts the most."
She is certainly party correct. Most people really do not pay attention to what is going on in the world, and for those that do, they fail to comprehend the depth of the issues. Furthermore, yes, the Democrats have played politics with Operation Iraqi Freedom and all aspects of the war on terror, and you helped enable them, Cindy. You bought into their extreme rhetoric, designed to help regain power, and their BDS. You yourself have worked hard to make sure that Casey’s death means nothing. Think on that, Cindy. We are all saddened by your loss, but you chose to use his death for extremist politics and surrender, something his heroism in the face of combat surely did not stand for.
But, all in all, I wish you well, Cindy. We are still Americans.

She’s not thinking of Nixon’s “Checkers” speech, she’s thinking of the press conference he gave after losing the California gubernatorial race in 1962. Wrong to the bitter end.
