The New Michelle Malkin Meme--Updated!
Okay, I've been harassing a couple of the bloggers who dowdified her quote, and the semi-intelligent response I'm getting back is that it's not about her supposed attack on Cindy Sheehan, it's about her daring to speak for a dead soldier. And you know, I'd almost agree with that criticism if it were not for what she actually dared to say for that soldier. To repeat:
"She has aligned herself now with Michael Moore, who considers those very Iraqi terrorists Minutemen. That's what he calls them! He's likening them to the American revolutionaries and considers them heroes. I can't imagine that Casey Sheehan would approve of such behavior, conduct and rhetoric."
The nerve of the woman, daring to say that perhaps Casey Sheehan might not agree with somebody who characterized the people who killed him, as "Minutemen"!
BTW, here's a couple of people
who don't think Cindy Sheehan speaks for her son:The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.
Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
Be sure to read the comments on that post--there is some controversy as to whether this was actually written by a Sheehan family member, and whether it accurately reflects the feelings of the relatives mentioned. Yellow light on this one.
Update: Looks like the email was accurate
:Sheehan says she's always been at odds politically with her Republican in-laws.
Mrs. Media Matters has some thoughts on a related topic
. I should mention here that I personally don't care for O'Reilly and almost never watch his show.
Another Note: The comments are out of hand. I'm not going to continue editing them, so be warned all who enter. As Mrs G likes to say, this is a salon, not a saloon, but I don't have the time or the inclination to clean it up right now.
BTW, guess who finished ahead
of President Bush in a poll of Right of Center Bloggers' favorite person on the Right?
Pam Meister has some thoughts on why the Left despises Mrs M
that I heartily endorse.
Tel-Chai Nation, an Israeli blogger, comments on a part of the story
that I haven't covered as yet, Mrs Sheehan's association with a bunch of anti-Semitic groups. This may be where Crawfordapalooza grinds to a halt eventually, when people realize the extremism of the folks around her.
