The Return of Mama Moonbat

The left has been strangely silent about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan since rainbows and unicorns came into power in January, but our favorite ditch person, Cindy Sheehan, Mama Moonbat herself, wants the antiwar left to mimic the Tea Party protesters who are thwarting Obamacare. The antiwar left griped for years and held big rallies, but never had the kind of effect on national policy that the anti-Obamacare folks have had in a few weeks.

Why? Republicans knew she and her merry band of Code Pinkos were a bunch of kooks and they weren't intimidated. They just ignored the petulant outbursts. Obama knows he's not dealing with kooks, but people who could really make an impact on his presidency.

Sheehan is headed to Martha's Vineyard where Obama will be vacationing to repeat her famous Crawford Ditch Protest, this time targeting President Hopenchange. From her statement:
First of all, no good social or economic change will come about with the continuation or escalation of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. We simply can't afford to continue this tragically expensive foreign policy.

Secondly, we as a movement need to continue calling for an immediate end to the occupations even when there is a Democrat in the Oval Office. There is still no Noble Cause no matter how we examine the policies.

Thirdly, the body bags aren't taking a vacation and as the U.S.-led violence surges in Afghanistan and Pakistan, so are the needless deaths on every side.

And, finally, if the right-wing can force the government to drop any kind of public option or government supported health care, then we need to exert the same kind of pressure to force a speedy end to the occupations.
Let's see if Obama is as tolerant of her protests as Bush was.

Good for her! New media been neglecting the poor gal. Give 'em hell, Cindy -- Shirley -- whatever her name is.

How I wish I could join her. I could stand there with my signs saying, "Don't blame me, I support our Troops" and "What Goes Around, Eventually Comes Around" -- and I could wear a tee-shirt saying "They call it, Karma, Baby."
