Cindy Sheehan Got Busted
Update and Bump: see botom
On Saturday, the well known Communist organization International ANSWER and its affiliate World Peace Now organized an Anti-American rally in Washington DC. ( AP )
[A] massive demonstration Saturday on the National Mall that drew a crowd of 100,000 or more, [was] the largest such gathering in the capital since the war began in March 2003.
In other words, all the people who were against the war before the war are still against the war. Big deal. After two and half years of negative campaigning, they cannot recruit any more people than what they had when the war started.
Oh yes, don't forget our friend Cindy Sheehan. The following day, she and her supporters gathered around the White House, chanted an anti war "song," and got arrested. One of the participants even tried to climb the fence and was quickly subdued by the Secret Service. (He was lucky not to be shot.)
I wonder how many of those participants claimed to be family members of soldiers killed in Iraq. As I wrote last month at Captains Quarter’s, they are well known for puffing up such claims:
"We're also asking that you bring pictures of children," MoveOn.org requested, and it didn't matter "whether or not you have a child serving in the military."

Protein Wisdom does not think the anti-America rally comprised anywhere near 100,000 people. They've got interesting pictures.

Power Line has an interesting picture of a Marine at the anti-war rally. Pay close attention to the sign he carries.

Awww....poor Cindy Sheehan. She's starting her slide from the 15 minutes of fame, and it's not looking pretty. Go read here at the Huffington Post, as Cindy feebly tries to explain why she was smiling while being arrested, and why she was upset that H [Read More]

Stupid tactics played right into the Celebrity Arrest Syndrome. They should have carted off everyone *except* Sheehan. Then we could have the wonderful headline:
CINDY CAN'T GET ARRESTED IN THIS TOWN

I hope they treat Sheehan with all the kindness the left has extended the anti-abortion protesters.
Actually, the concept of Sheehan in a chain gang makes me happy. Maybe we could trade her to China for one of their prisoners?

I wonder how anti-war and isolationist these folks would be if Argentina decided to invade Cuba. That would be quite a dilemma for them.
