The dog and (one-trick) pony show that is The Cindy Sheehan Experience. And for your jewhating pleasure, now with 100% more Al Sharpton.
From Crawford to Crown Heights! Next stop: Freddie’s Fashion Mart you dirty diamond merchant interlopers!
With special guest R. Kelly performing his Crawford-In-A-Closet Remix of Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Wanna Piss On Ya, TawanaÃ¢â‚¬?.
Citizen journalist and noted Pie Enthusiast Jeff Goldstein observes:
Sheehan said to her supporters today (IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m paraphrasing), Ã¢â‚¬Å“when the history books talk about the Camp Casey movement, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll be able to say you met CaseyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s MomÃ¢â‚¬?Ã¢â‚¬â€proof positive that Cindy Sheehan believes her own press clippings and truly does see herself as a modern day Gandhi or King, Jr. ….The fucking hubris of this woman. Astounding!
Powerline has recon troops on the ground at Camp Commie:
Cindy Sheehan spent most of her time huddled with VIPS in and air-conditioned trailer. When she ventured out it was for a scripted and often televised moment. She was always trailed by her media people, and they were quick to keep her on point. During one conversation I had with her I tried to ask her a pointed question about how much time she would actually be on the bus tour to Washington (I had discovered she would only be on the tour for two days, and would be away giving speeches during the rest of the tripÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and I wondered if she were being paid for these speeches) Her media person grabbed her arm and led her back to the trailer, and away from me. The message was protected. I was left standing thereÃ¢â‚¬Â¦alone, and feeling a little less secure about my status at Camp Casey.
But just a few minutes later, she emerged from the trailer, smiling, and performing for the cameras. Like the chicken at the local carnival that plays tic tac toe, she eagerly performs for any microphone. She is relentless, and professional, well financed and on message.
And the message is Ã¢â‚¬Å“All things bad are AmericaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fault.”
No surprise there.
