Cindy Sheehan paid $52,500 for a five-acre lot in Crawford, Texas, to host this year’s Motherfest. Only 50 or soSheehan supporters set up camp there.

    1. On the one hand: hee, hee.

      On the other: what dumbass bankrolled this? I have the greatest difficulty in believing it was Mother Cindy herself.

      “If he had met with me last year, I would have gone away,” she said.
      Oh, hell no. Nothing would ever be enough for her.

    1. Sounds like St. Mother’s in the same boat with John Kerry.

    1. Motherfest – the name alone makes me want to puke.

    1. Takes a deep breath, as he looks out over the Lazy C Ranch.

      You smell that, Bob?

      Yeah, Mr. Paco. It does smell strongly of B.O. And maybe pot.

      No, boy. I’m talking about that deeper, richer aroma – the smell of the grade A, cradle-bred sucker. Cindy Sheehan spent over fifty thousand dollars for five acres of scrub land here in Crawford. How much do you think she’d pay for a modular home right across from the White House, at Lafayette Acres.

      You mean Lafayette Park, sir? That’s federal property.

      That’s what I mean, boy! After deducting the cost of a used trailer and hauling it to the park and plopping it down next to the statue of Lafayette, or maybe the one of General Kosciusko, we’d be lookin’ at almost a zero investment. I reckon we could pry another fifty grand or so out of these clods. Pure profit!

      But Mr. Paco, would that be ethical? Remember what the Bible says: “What doth it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul?”

      All depends on the mark-up, boy.

      Cindy spent Christmas in Cambodia, too?

      Oh…..Sheehan land deal spurs debate in real estate circles.

    1. This represents a completely unacceptable inflation in the market price of idiots.

      Why, I remember as a boy the great ignorant idiots one could purchase for a mere $5.99, well withing the reach of the average consumer.

      Typical, really. I blame Jimmy Carter.

    1. These are premium free-range idiots – they need room to forage.

      A team of Cambridge researchers will soon be installing CCTV cameras in order to cut a ‘Meerkat Manor’ style documentary. All they need is a catchy title…

    1. Dr. Alice –

      Cindfy Sheehan is from Vacaville, California, an outlying suburb of San Francisco. She’s recently divorced. I’d suspect that she has half the proceeds from the sale of the house, which is probably at least $180k. (A 3bd/2ba house in Vacaville starts at $360k.) She probably paid *cash* for that land in Crawford.

      Wanna bet the Bush Presidential Library buys the land back in 2009?

    1. #4 Paco,
      Nice. When’s the next episode of Detective Paco Investigates?. I print them out, bind with brown paper and flog ‘em for five bucks a pop. Sometimes I fake your signature, those babies are collectors items. I’d like to think you approve.

    1. You know, I’m getting pretty sick of these people calling themselves anti-war.  What sane person is for war?  Having been raised in a military family, and having been in the military myself, I can say with no reservations that no one I know, or have known, claps their hands in glee at the prospect of war.

      That doesn’t mean that you don’t pick up your weapon and go fight when it is necessary.  I’m not pro-war, but I am anti-slavery.  I’m also anti-St. Ma types who presume to offer up mankind to the mercies of slave-masters.  If this bitch and her fellow travelers are so anti-war, why aren’t they protesting outside the UN?  Why aren’t they outraged over the genocide in the Sudan?  Why aren’t they protesting the renewed slave trade out of Africa into the Middle East?  I can think of half-dozen atrocities that ought to be protested, but out of a world of monsters, the only one they can see is President Bush.  And we’re supposed to take that seriously?

      Well, I protest this bitch in the name of the son she has deserted, and all those who have given their lives so that she can prance around the world, gushing over tyrants.

    1. “On the other: what dumbass bankrolled this?”

      The American taxpayer.  She purchased the land with the money she recieved from her son’s G.I. insurance.

      Sickening, ain’t it?

    1. $1050 per idiot? Hang on, I’ll just go get my rifle and…what? Oh, sorry.  I thought Tim was offering a bounty.

    1. If this bitch and her fellow travelers are so anti-war, why aren’t they protesting outside the UN?  Why aren’t they outraged over the genocide in the Sudan?  Why aren’t they protesting the renewed slave trade out of Africa into the Middle East?

      Well, I don’t really know about the rest of them, but St. Cindy isn’t bothering with any of that other stuff because none of that is about her.

      Besides, UN = good, and the multi-culti types wouldn’t want to denigrate the Sudanese leaders and the Arab slave traders for what are obviously their cultural norms.  I mean, with our western colonialist history, who are we to judge?

    1. “If he had met with me last year, I would have gone away,” she said.

      Heck, he’d met with her even earlier than that. Does that mean she doesn’t even exist? Hooray, if so.

    1. #10: More power to you, Dan. Detective Paco’s only in it for the excitement of the chase, anyway.

    1. I bet that part of Texas is pretty hot this time of year.  They got any plumbing there?  I’m sure they don’t have AC, as they’re such greenie hippies.

    1. #1, Dr Alice, Dave in #12 is right.  St. Ma received Casey’s insurance payout, which is a hefty sum, even after taxes.  But that pot o’ gold isn’t bottomless, which makes me wonder what happens when she runs out of cash, and ANSWER drops her like a used condom.  That’ll be a meltdown to see……from a distance.

    1. #18. And you’ll have to see it TRJ, cuz you sure as hell won’t read about it in the MSM.

    1. 8: These are premium free-range idiots – they need room to forage.

      LOL, fidens! Grass-fed morons. Still look pretty pricey if that’s the cost “on the hoof”.

      Posted by paco on 2006 09 04 at 04:08 PM • permalink


    1. St. Ma paid uber-cash from her sons insurance for a treeless plain so her consorts can have a place to play. She hasn’t laid out a dime for a headstone for Casey’s grave to honor the fallen hero. Horrible to see a public display of mother hatred for her child.

    1. In our local paper a couple of years ago there was an article about John Lennon and some interwiews in which he had outlined his pacifist view that no war was justified. When asked what might have happened had we not fought WWII, he replied that a whole lot less people would have died.

      These people do not accept justified defence. Freedom is just not a priority for them. I suspect this would change were it taken away. But unless that happens, there is no reasoning with them.

      Fortunately there are many out there who do value freedom. May their sacrifices never be in vain.

    1. Sorry, gang, but this past May Cindy finally put a headstone up on her son’s grave.  Do a search for “Sheehan” over at Snopes.com and scroll down a bit for the details.

    1. #22,
      John Lennon might have called himself a pacifist but he was also a supporter of and substantial contributor of money to the IRA, who were certainly fighting their own sort of war, one of terrorism and criminality.  Like the modern Quakers he was the sort of “pacifist” who only objects to wars against tyranny and evil, while giving the tyrants and evildoers a pass. Pacifist my…sitzplatz.
