Cindy Sheehan’s moment of fame, that is. The Washington Post delivers a surprisingly honest assessment of Sheehan’s latest effort in Crawford, Texas:
Unlike [last August], when hundreds came from all over the country for major events at the two campsites named after Sheehan’s son, who was killed in Iraq, Sheehan found herself addressing a crowd of only about 100 Saturday afternoon. The large tent where supporters had erected a stage hung with the banner “Speak Truth to Power” was only partially full. In the morning Sheehan signed copies of her new book, being published this week, for an even smaller crowd.
“Even smaller crowd,” indeed:
The AP caption reads:
Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan waits for people to show up at her book signing near President Bush’s ranch on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005 in Crawford, Texas.
If any showed up, it isn’t apparent from the photos taken by AP and Reuters.
