As I was driving into work this morning, I was listening to the Laura Ingraham show. She was playing excerpts of an interview Cindy Sheehan had done on NPR (I'm pretty sure it was NPR).

Some paraphrased Q and A:

NPR: Did your son join the military voluntarily?
CS: He was lied to on many occasions.

NPR: Did he talk to you before joining?
CS: No, we didn't have the opportunity

NPR: What about your first meeting with President Bush?
CS: I've talked about that a long time ago and we've only got two minutes. Can't you ask me about what's going on right now or about what we've got planned in the future?

(The NPR interviewer was told that he would have her available for the entire segment. Guess he was asking too many questions she didn't like)

NPR: I haven't heard your version yet. Could you please share?
CS: It was like a tea party. We all felt worse afterwards. (Very terse reply)

NPR: Starts asking another question, gets cut off
CS: I gotta go now, thanks (hangs up)

NPR: Ummh, uhhhhhhhh.....


So now for my rant. We all know that she is highly motivated politically, and I hadn't really gotten excessively mad about her before. Sure, she's a media whore, but I sort of wrote that off until now thinking that she's got some ulterior good (in her screwed-up mind) goal she was trying to accomplish.

What stood out in this interview and what really INFURIATED me beyond description is her complete disingenousness about this whole affair. It's no longer the "grieving mother". It's ALL about her politics. There was such a tone of condescension in her voice that the reporter DARED to ask questions which didn't fall within her prearranged talking points. (Can't you please ask her about the next media stunt they have planned?) When he keeps going, she simply hangs up on him. I no longer have any feeling of sorrow for her loss, because I don't think she has a shred of decency left inside of her and her motives are purely unrelated to her son.

What kind of person would use the loss of their son to go on a media blitz?

She's a disgusting human being.

Just this once... I think the Airforce needs to drop a JDAM "on accident" near the president... what are her grid coordinates?

Perhaps Sheehan is trying to be the next Carolyn McCarthy?

God forbid...

Well, you answered your own queries....she is nothing but a low down, no good, socialist, liberal, America hating, piece of no good whale shit. She HATES America, and wants to help destroy it.

Too bad you can't find an Israeli bulldozer operator when you need one....

Those guys are busy right now bulldozing their own people's homes.

But yea - Cindy Sheehan = POS
"He was lied to on many occasions"

Ok so we have one mother who doesn't support the war in Iraq.
How many other parents have come out against it?
[crickets]
Yep - there ya go - lone nut case.

Did anyone see the comercial with her on it blaming Bush for all the deaths and the "lies" about the war.

I just saw it on Fox.

This lady is just a piece of shit.

I just saw her commercial for the first time.

I think she wants to meet with the President so she can shank him with a hidden letter opener.

Another Cindy Sheehan rant

My Rant!

That freaking Sheehan ad is even playing on Fox news now!

It came on CNN, I changed the channel in disgust, then it was on MSNBC, so I then I said thats what I get for watching the hurricane coverage on those channels.......Now Fox!.....Arrrg!!

The libs are screwing themselves with these new Cindy Sheehan commercials. They are making her out to be mainstream by putting her on 30 second spots. Obviously there are soon going to be counter commercials where they use her own psychotic rants to completely destroy her.


Until now the right has held back out of respect for her son, but these commercials have changed the rules.

Yeah. I hope that Bush NEVER meets with this bitch.

And, this bitches son must be rolling in his grave in disgrace.

Yeah, I heard the interview. At first I wasn't going to listen figuring that it would only make me want to throw my radio out the window, but I decided to listen and I'm glad I did.
I hadn't heard Cindy Sheehan speak before and I had just sort of given her the benefit of the doubt as being a mom who was very torn up and angry about her son's death; understandable enough. But after listening to her speak I very quickly realized that she is a bonafide head case. Not only that, but she is very disingenous and a manipulator and a bold faced liar.
President Bush absolutely did the right thing in refusing to meet with her. His advance people had almost certainly warned him off from any face to face, one on one meetings with her. She's obviously unbalanced.
Interestingly, the next caller detailed a conversation he had had with her in which she pulled the same stunt of lying about bad cell phone conections when the conversation got into anything she didn't want to talk about. She's totally deceitful.
If I were the Secret Service I wouldn't let her within several miles of the POTUS.

Gee, wonder why.

What a cunt. I'm now convinced her son wanted nothing to do with her.

We know what kind of person she is. Her son knew what kind of person she is. It may take some time but I think most everyone else will figure it out.

If you don't like wars, or your Son/Daughter(s) fighting in them, then do not go into the Military. There isn't a draft system, so it's all voluntary.

Just using the military for college money, your own damn fault then. War is a part of the military, when you signup, you also signup for war, if we go!

Zhuk, I heard that same interview on NPR.

She has an ad now? Where did she get the $$$ for that/

I wish there was a group that would counteract her. How about a pro Casey Sheehan movement. It would fly in the face of waht she is doing witha brutal but honest point to it. Casey Sheehan is a hero and it pisses the libs off to no end. They should name lots of thing after Casey in her hometown. CAsey should be the spotlight, not his mother. That should be the main focus. The fact that she is taking away from her sons sacrifice if the issue, the more folks see that the more folks will hate the left.

Diety forbid that a reporter would actually ask an honest question. She was simply not prepared for it. She simply is an attention hound with an agenda. She is using her son's death to persue this agenda and I would guess that the media will be bored with her in short order.



Thats because the teeniest little bit of objectivity was applied here...

Zhukov,

You are dead on. She is a disgusting human being.
Her son was a hero.
She has totally dishonored his memory
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 11:47:23 AM EDT
the other day she had a press conference and someone asked "what about the Iraqsi that want us to stay until their gov't gets on its feet?"
she muttered something and ended the press conference
she's a fucking tool that looks like a man

This was at the bottom of the ad I saw.
http://www.gsfp.org/ - link left cold on purpose.

There was some sort of split with the Gold Star Moms, and this is her new group. Others here know way more than me about this.

Local news just interviewed a mother of a Marine. He was caught in an explosion a day or so ago. Lost his right arm and might lose his right leg. She is the exact oposite of the sheehan bitch
Siad America is not aplace to just sit and do nothing when mass murderers like Hussein kill their people. She also said pulling out now when the Iraqi people need and want us there would be a huge mistake
