The Sad and the Sickening.

I’m not going to pass judgment on Cindy Sheehan’s actions or opinions. She has lost her son which must be unbearably sad. Is she melting down, or is she acting according to her strong beliefs? Maybe both, I just don’t know.

I will, however, pass judgment on the sickening behavior of the anti-war groups and the media who are using her to advance their agendas, sell more papers, or increase their viewership. If Ms. Sheehan were an alcoholic, these people would be buying her drinks. If she were standing on the roof of a building, threatening to leap to her death, these lowlifes would be yelling “Jump, Jump”. I can imagine no conduct more contemptible.

There is much debate about whether these folks are lazy, ignorant, willfully biased, or lacking a conscience. Well, one thing they clearly lack is a soul.
