The Cindy Sheehan affair

If you only ever got your news from TV, you'd have the impression (as I did) that the affair of Cindy Sheehan was a one-shot deal, involving a distressed mother, standing forelorne on a sun-baked stretch of Texas county road, waiting , waiting, waiting for her President to come by, pause and engage in some chit chat, and possibly speak a kind word or two of solace to this greiving woman, whose son was killed in the deserts of Iraq.

You'd think her alone, but the fact of the matter is that she is not alone. Dozens, perhaps as many as over a hundred supporters and sympathizers are out there with her. Thousands more, maybe millions, are following her affair on the Internet, and she definitely has support. But you wouldn't know that, if you only watched TV.

Go to Truthout.org
and see some streaming video, or check out these on-the-spot bloggers (courtesy of skippy).


Sadly, the Perez is too busy to toss even a few crumbs to this woman. He's resting from his conquests.
