Cindy Sheehan: Crackpot (But Now Irrelevant)

We would be inclined to leave Cindy Sheehan alone. But back when she was the media darling and we were calling her a crackpot, some left-leaning types took umbrage.

We have in mind the 1932 Blog, and FightingBob.com.

The former, for example, said:
Cindy Sheenan proves just how shallow the right-wing is.

The woman lost her son, who served our country, and the right, including GOP3.com, launches a dirty personal attack on her just because she doesn’t share their viewpoint on the war in Iraq. I can’t think of anything more disgusting.
And then there is FightingBob.com.
This policy of personally attacking Sheehan has been well documented. A discernible pattern has made it clear that the all-out assault on Sheehan is a result of GOP design and not just the happenstance outcome of some likeminded thinking. (It also happens to be remarkably appalling.) Smearing a grieving mother is not necessarily the intuitive communications strategy. . . .
Yes, it’s all the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy.

Given this kind of rhetoric, we can hardly avoid rubbing the noses of the leftists in the nonsense they have chosen to defend.

From the Huffington Post Sheehan declares:
If George Bush truly listened to God and read the words of the Christ, Iraq and the devastation in New Orleans would have never happened. . . . George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self [sic] from power.
Gosh, and we thought the problem was that the troops took too long to arrive!
