Work through the logic of this, posted by Walter Kirn at Sullivan’s place:
Sheehan has every right to her emotion, as far as I’m concerned, since a war that can’t survive a mourning mother shouldn’t be going on at all.
So if the war can survive a mourning mother, then Sheehan loses the right to her emotion? And is that how we measure a war’s sustainability—by the grief of one parent? What if that parent isn’t actually mourning but instead thinks it’s great that her protest demands haven’t been met, allowing her to maintain whatever idiot momentum she’s built thus far?
