Cindy Sheehan's Day of Out-of-Tunement Manifesto

Hatched by Dafydd

I rarely do this, as you know: I rarely link to some piece and say simply "read this." (I'm too in love with the sound of my own fingers typing on a keyboard.)

But here's an exception. Read Cindy Sheehan's Yom Kippur "sermon," delivered at Michael Lerner's Beyt Tikkun "synogogue;" you will be -- if not exactly glad, then at least agape. (Rabbi Lerner is Hillary Clinton's mentor, author of the Politics of Meaning and other works of Socialist agit-prop masquerading as theology.)

My response (I love this) is entirely contained in the list of categories I had to attach to this post.

(Well, one more thing. It has always been my understanding that Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, is a day for each person to atone for what he, personally, has done wrong -- not "atone" for his enemies failing to live up to his own lofty standards, apologize for all the times America hasn't followed his lead, or wallow in self-righteous indignation that nobody listens to him. 'Nuff said; read the list of categories above.)

Is penance part of Yom Kippur? Because that poor congregation having to sit through Ms. Sheehan's diatribe has to be worth a hairshirt and forty lashes.

Michael Lerner, who celebrates and mentors Cindy Sheehan, reached his destiny and gained fame and guruhood during the Clinton Administration. He was designated High Priest and brought to their hollow mentality, a new religion proposing that everyone who was poor should be made healthy, wealthy and comfortable. The rich could and would pay for it. The new religion produced such good feelings throughout the Whitehouse, that many parties were held and "feelgood" was the name proposed for the new philosophy. When the Clintons left office, Rabbi Learner's thoughts lost out to rascally Republican ideas of ambition, self reliance, smaller government and private charity. But Rabbi Learner's "feelgood" philosophy has taken root again in Cindy Sheehan's hair, no, I mean thoughts. Now that the Clintons are on the way back, Rabbi Learner will ride, I mean nurture, Cindy's plan for peace in the world. Probably along the way he will annoint other deciples, maybe Al "we want half" Sharpton or Dennis "I bankrupted Cleveland as a child" Kucinivitch or Nancy "I own San Francisco" Pelosi. But the ultimate goal for Learner is to hold hands again with Hillary.

Unbelievable! If anyone wants to say that no Democrats condemn ousting the Taliban, look no further than Cindy...
