If I may sort of paraphrase Mr.Churchill in his statement that democracy is the worst form of government except for all the others, all wars are wrong except not fighting evil is worse. This is realized by the Sheehan family except for the disturbed Cindy.

Is she really dishonoring her son? It seems that people know more about Casey than its mother herself that is quite strange for me. Casey was its son, is people realizing what it is? It seems not.

She's using her son, his service, and his death to bring attention to herself.

Even if he thought the war was wrong, her behavior dishonors him and the uniform he chose to wear. It also dishonors every other American in uniform.

I feel very sorry for the rest of the Sheehan family.

I just don't understand the right's need to attack poor woman. Ok so she doesn't like your God President. She lost her son, and while you might not care one bit about him, you can be sure that she's going through a hard time. IT'S HER SON. I don't understand why that's so difficult for the right to to understand.

All this "Support the troops" lipservice that comes from the right is nonsense if you watch actions. I guess it's "support the troops and run their grieving families through the dirt."

Grow a heart.

It's the left's cynical manipulation of the grieving mother that bothers me, dolphin. To use your phrase, I would say to them -- both anti-Bush activists and their media fellow travelers -- "Grow a heart."

Amendment I to the Constitution guarantees her right to peaceably assemble and to petition the government with her grievances. Assuming she is being manipulated by the far left is just that, an assumption. Perhaps her assertions should be taken at face value. Accusing her of dishonoring her son or using his death to accelerate a political agenda are disingenuous arguments that can be heard on any far right radio program. By that standard, Megan's Law or the Amber Alert are the exploitation of tragic deaths to further a political agenda. His death is political. The war is political. Tha maniacal rantings on both sides are political. Please tell me what noble cause Dear Leader is promoting as justification this week. Anyone fomenting negative opinion of Ms. Shhehan is also using politics to their advantage. The truth, as always, lies somewhere in the middle. Does anyone else wonder why the magnetic ribbons found on cars throughout this great country state the admonition, "Support the Troops", instead of "I Support the Troops"? Who among us, unlike Ms. Sheehan, her son, and their peers, has had to sacrifice anything for this war? Carpal tunnel syndrome does not count.

I see some of Dan's trolls have found their way over here, OUTRAGED! that someone might actually give Miss Fifteen Minutes something less than zombie-like adulation. How amusing!

Wake up, WUA; I don't suppose you have the same fawning love for the grieving mothers who support the war in Iraq, do you? I suppose those mothers are...chickenhawks? Following orders of "Dear Leader"? Look in the mirror, fool.

Thanks, Beth. I needed that. :)

Her "family members" are not in line against Cindy Sheehan. One of the in-law aunts, whom Cindy says barely knew Casey, wrote the letter to Drudge. What a shock, a member of her extended family doesn't share her views! Who ever heard of such a thing?

Cindy is exercising her right as an American citizen to peaceably assemble, and all she cares to do is to hold the President accountable for his statements and actions. Isn't that what all Americans should want from a government that is "for the people and by the people?"

The rest of what you write about MoveOn and the "Dean internet guru..." is just a calculated smokescreen to get rightwingers all riled up by pushing their hot buttons. I'm only surprised you forgot to work in Michael Moore's name somewhere. Maybe you save him only for those choice times when you want the far right to get *really* outraged and donating money.

Right now, there is a woman camping in a ditch in Texas who just wants some straight answers about why her son had to die and where the President intends to lead our country. On the other hand, we have a President who won't meet with her, because he's afraid of facing her or so arrogant that he believes he shouldn't have to listen to citizens with dissenting views. Across the road from Cindy Sheehan and her supporters, which includes military veterans and active servicemembers, there is a handful of people shouting at this mother of a fallen US soldier: "WE DON'T CARE! WE DON'T CARE!"

Are you so sure you know just who is supporting or dishonoring our troops and the ideals of our nation? Between those who want an accountable government and those shouting, "WE DON'T CARE!" which side really appeals to our better human nature?

Cindy Sheehan is a raging lunatic and an avowed anti-semite, a woman who favors the death of millions of Israelis at the hands of Palestinian terrorists.

She and the people who support her are giving willing support to the terrorists who believe that if they just kill enough Americans, the U.S. will cut and run from this fight.

I am an American serviceman, and I have two words for Mother Sheehan - GO AWAY.

It seems that Sheehan and the others in the left don't realize: These people are not kids when they enlist, they do so freely, and they have full knowledge that it is a dangerous job. They just seem hell-bent bleating that we send 'kids' off to war, and they have all but said that the American soldiers are too stupid to make the right choice. They have made their choice. Deal with it!
