Do you remember when Cindy Sheehan had “absolute moral authority”? That was in the good old days when she was a useful cog in the anti-Bush administration wheel. When it became obvious that she was a Stalinist nut, and when the Bush administration was on the way out in any event, she was quietly eased out of the headlines. But she never went away, if you were paying attention.
Which you probably weren’t, since the press stopped following her Crawford, Texas vigils when there was no longer anything in it for the Democratic Party. To her credit, I guess, Sheehan has remained consistent–consistently crazy. She hates America and wants us to lose to our enemies, just as she did during the Bush administration. You can’t help noticing, though, that whereas the New York Times and most other media outlets treated her like Joan of Arc when she was attacking George W. Bush, they couldn’t care less what she has to say now that their guy is in office.
But let’s check in on Ms. Sheehan’s Facebook page:
I am sorry, but if you believe the newest death of OBL, you’re stupid. Just think to yourself–they paraded Saddam’s dead sons around to prove they were dead–why do you suppose they hastily buried this version of OBL at sea? This lying, murderous Empire can only exist with your brainwashed consent–just put your flags away and THINK!
Poor Cindy doesn’t seem to understand that now that the Democrats are in charge of the Empire, her incoherent rants are no longer front-page news.
