SEYMOUR SKINNER? WARD REILLY? JOHN KERRY?

Cindy Sheehan finds a new man:

I am seeing a Vietnam vet right now.

UPDATE. Sheehan’s Australian visit remains underwhelming:

Ms Sheehan was speaking at a protest rally outside the Liberal Party offices in Exhibition street.

She told about 200 people the war on terror was immoral and eroded basic civil and human rights.

Not much Australian coverage lately. Sheehan fever might be cooling down.

    1. Mantra: “Do, or do not. There is no try.” (Jedi Master Yoda.)

      Remember Yoda demonstrating against the Jedi-Industrial Complex, and the illegal occupation of the ice-planet Hoth?

      Looking at me you’d never guess: I am a radical peacenik.

      Oh really?

    1. Thom Lyons?

    1. #3 you beat me to it.
      That was my initial thought.
      Wonder what the latest is there. There’s been nothing by Tex at Whackingday for quite some time.
      Always thought his lies would demand some wider coverage.

    1. No question this mad woman is overcome with grief, but this is going a bit far.

      Over the years I’ve known people who have over protective mothers. If I had to stereotype, they would be an only child, almost all male, often born to older mothers who no longer have hubby around and not much else to distract them in life (e.g. career etc). Seymour Skinner and his mother capture it perfectly.

      Don’t know whether Cindy fitted into the stereotype.

      But one thing I don’t get: if she was such a doting mother, what did she think in the first place when Casey told her he was joining the army. Did they think the army would ask her opinion before sending Casey into action? Did she do her nut, or did she just assume it was just a safe job and nothing would ever happen? Is anyone aware of the story here, or is it something Cindy keeps to herself?

    1. “The only thing that has trained me for my activism career is the death of my son, Casey, in the immoral and illegal war on Iraq.”

      It’s good to see the disadvantaged take up new careers.

    1. I would suggest Ho Chi Minh, but I heard somewhere he carked it a while ago, so it’s probably Thom Lyons (he’s a commie fellow traveller)

    1. OT but Bracks Government here in Vic has announced a funding package for over-sized ppl (up to 350kg).  Apparently becoming an occupational health and safety issue for out ambo’s.

      So when r us normal sized ppl going to get extra luggage allowance on airplanes?

    1. “Education/experience: I went to UCLA and left school with one year left to earn my B.A. in history. The only thing that has trained me for my activism career is the death of my son, Casey, in the immoral and illegal war on Iraq.”

      She went to UCLA and never was exposed to lefty social activism. I guess that was covered in the fourth year of a liberal arts degree at UCLA.

      She’s right.  I’ve spent the last two years trapped under a very heavy rock in darkest Peru without any access to the internet or any single MSM outlet like ABCNNBCBS.  Who exactly is this woman?

      But not literally worth fighting for, quite apparently in her opinion.

      From the Madonna of the Ditch – “Person outside my family I most admire: Anyone who is working to get our troops out of Iraq and for peace.” Zarqawi? “Ahminijihad” (a/k/a the Gilligan of Persia)? Sheehan’s got a one-track mind, and the locomotive has no brakes, the signals are all down, and the bridge is out.

    1. What do you want to bet the Vietnam vet she’s seeing has a gray ponytail and a bush hat he bought in an Army/Navy surplus store?

      Also, could somebody get that T-shirt off of her?  It’s insulting to those of us who actually do support the troops.

      Uh huh.  That’s like the dork in high school who has that girlfriend in Canada that no one has ever seen.

      Or maybe we should just take her at her word.  After all, Vietnamese animal doctors need love too, don’t they?

    1. It must be Jesse “Scottish Play”. He did win the Iron Victoria Cross, with Oak Leaf Clusters, Third Class, in Nam before he turned against the Punic Wars. Just the type that would appeal to Cindy. Brave, yet progressive.

    1. Reading that whole sadass interview, it strikes me the poor woman has always been a bit stupid.  But to take as her mantra the “saying” of a muppet…!  Is anyone really surprised at Cindy’s Progress?  Is her date perhaps Mr. Brisk?  She does seem to feed at Beelzebub’s Orchard, doesn’t she?

      I did despise her until now.  Now it’s all pity.

    1. Whoever he is, he’s running a little late.

      Ma Sheehan’s got some red-blue-jeans all wore out by now and anyway, she’s probably still hankin’ for John Lennon.

      Imagine there’s no Cindy
      It’s easy if you try…

      You can’t stop love, I suppose.

      Bullshit!  That’s exactly how the missus recognised her at Brisbane airport.

      The wife said she was looking at this American “freak” woman, wearing hippie gear, sandals and an angry lezzo haircut when she noticed the word “Casey” tattooed on her ankle.  It then dawned on her as to who this “freak” was.

      Apparently, nobody else in the airport actually seemed to recognise Sheehan.  I doubt the wife would have known who she was either, except for the fact that she has a ranting RWDB husband.
