You remember Cindy Sheehan, I’m sure.  She was a vocal anti-war protestor whose son was killed in Iraq.  She protested for an extended time outside Bush’s ranch.

Know what she’s been doing since Obama got elected?  Exactly all of the same things.

She’d like to know what’s become of the anti-war movement since January 20, 2009, though.

You know, I’m confident there are huge swaths of disagreement between us.  There are large parts of my ideal world that wouldn’t resemble hers much at all.  But I respect her.  She has principles that aren’t determined by whether the president has a D or an R after his name.  However wrong I think her ideology is, there is evidence that it is pure.

(On that note, let me say, prophylactically, that you’d have little trouble finding me raising hell about liberty and fiscal discipline concurrent with the Bush administration.)

You people could learn something from Sheehan, and by “you people” I mean all of you wussy, spineless, hypocritical liberals who (apparently, only now) haven’t the first problem with things like the PATRIOT Act, the wiretapping, the eavesdropping, the military tribunals, and any number of other things that haven’t changed at all (or have actually worsened!), all because your precious little god-king sits in the Oval Office.

(Cindy Sheehan plans to protest on Martha’s Vineyard when The One is vacationing there, incidentally.  Let’s watch for what I’m sure will be copious and unending coverage of it, okay?)

  1. I’m a liberal but at least I’m spineless and stupid.

  2. Amen Brother! Nothing irritates me more than intellectual dishonesty.

  3. If I were her, I’d be protesting my wardrobe. Yikes! Sometimes the components die of shame.

  4. BamaDan: “All I can say, is that my life is pretty plain…”

  5. I can’t tell, are you for or against wiretapping and the Patriot Act? Nope, you just want to point the finger like all the other pundits while using the good name of Cindy Sheehan. Take a stand for once in your life and man up. Stop bottom feeding off real Americans.

  6. Yeah, because history has been rewritten and Obama was FOR the war in Iraq. You see if he was president 8 years ago her son would still be with us. Sort of takes the punch out it.

  7. Ugh, someone just placed themselves on the tee.

    Bo, it’s a Par-4, 310 to the flag. I reccomend the 3-wood.

  8. BamaDan: LOL!

    I have new “fans” because Greg reddit.comed this post, which I do enjoy. You know, if a comment contains actual content I’ll almost always approve it, and author embarrassment be damned…

    Mikael: The answer to your question is clear. Read the post again (this time for comprehension).

    My stand is absolutely consistent. I don’t like compromises of personal liberty, no matter who is in the White House. And you’re right, I am pointing the finger–at liberals who endlessly wailed about these things with Bush in office, and have fallen silent under The One. If that’s you, then you’re a hypocrite, and part of one of the biggest problems with the state of our political discourse today.

    Hold your god-king’s feet to the fire, long enough and loud enough that the media will have no choice but to notice. Then, you and your ilk shall impress me.

    I won’t be holding my breath.

    Regarding Cindy Sheehan: did you read the linked post at all? It doesn’t sound like it.

  9. FORE!!!
