Unlikely War Supporter


There are 2 clear war camps one pro war the other anti war. The anti war camp has always had less than favorable characters as their faces (Sean Penn and the like). Even the most dignified opponents can be construed as political. These challengers have mustered their main support from the fringe because the representatives have been - well -quirky.

This is all about to change. Special kudos to the President and his publicist and the conservatives in the media. Ms. Sheehan, the woman who lost her son in Iraq and has been demanding that the President re-meet with her in hopes to halt the war and has been recently incarcerated for rabble rousing in front of the White house. The pro war folks are actually vilifying her. The President has all but ignored her and the conservative media has had a heartless field day with her, painting her as a deranged psycho.

President Bush and the media have created a martyr for the anti Iraq war cause. She is not a menacing aloof actor nor is she an opportunist senator seeking higher office. She is a real human being who has undergone real life misery. Her misery is the result of her colossal sacrifice for the United States. The character assasination of Ms. Sheehan will only work against the war efforts. The demonizing of Ms. Sheehan will backfire. Personally, I am ambiguous about the war. However, I am sure that a woman who is an American hero has a lot more validity than many would like us to think.

    Girls-gone-wild-twenty-years-too-late star Cindy She-man is a horrible mom who is has turned her sons death into a traitorous liberal Bush-bashing-frat-party. Go Away Cindy. Get a life!

    I don't know her motives. However, I do know by demonizing a person who lost her son and by not adressing her Bush and Company will lose the publicity battle.

    You're buying into the anti-war propaganda of the mainstream media. Did you ever hear her speak? It's embarassing to listen to her. She was obviously affected mentally by the terrible things she went through. And she is being shamelessly used by the radical left. Besides which, what was that crap she was talking about the other day about Israel causing all the problems in the Middle East?

    You got me wrong kemosabee. My point is that regardless of whether she is right or wrong Bush and the conservative media have given her the platform and the microphone and turned her into a martyr and consequently made her right.

    I did not know that she maligned Israel. I’ll look it up. Thank you

    Try this for starters, although I'm sure there's more.

    How dare you call her a Girls-gone-wild. Her only wild is that Bush killed her son. It is so typical of a boropark moron like you to turn everything into a holier than thou pro Republican rant. Get a life.
