Mother Sheehan’s innovative chain whispering campaign—“Participants also did a ‘chain whisper’ in each other’s ear: ‘We honor Casey Sheehan and other fallen soldiers. Pass it on’”—hasn’t inspired widespread public response, possibly because Antony Loewenstein had all the whisperers shot as enemy collaborators. So she’s come up with another clever tactic:

Cindy Sheehan and other peace activists plan to “die symbolically” for the next four days outside the White House to represent the American soldiers who have died in Iraq.

Sheehan, whose son Casey died in Iraq last year, organized the vigil as the U.S. military death toll in the war neared 2,000.

“I’ll be laying down and not getting up,” Sheehan said Tuesday to a small crowd in which the number of journalists exceeded the number of protesters. “When they let me out, I’ll do the same thing if I get arrested.”

That’s if any cops bother turning up. What’s the police code for “prone moonbat activity in progress”?

    1. A bunch of Protest Warriors ought to show up and just shield the public from looking at the slut. Let her lie there or chained to the fence. Of course the thousands of MSM reporters will break that up.

    1. That’s a 404, Tim.

    1. Is there any real reason not to just let her lie there forever?  I mean aside from laws about littering and the disposal (eventually, I would think) of corpses?  Who would care?  Although maybe we could Jesse Jackson to come lie beside her.  Probably not, though, not enough cameras.

    1. Moonbats demontrate a high rate of rabies infection, so I’d call animal control. They can then whack her with a shovel, scoop her into one of those aninmal carriers, and whisk her off to wherever the municipal authorities dispose of roadkill.

    1. I’d be more impressed if she sprawled out on the pavement during the summer months. Anybody can lay down on the ground during cool weather.

    1. “We’ll go on strike!”
      “That’s right! You’ll have a national moonbat strike on your hands!”

    1. Oh this is sad.  But still, it’s the only way Cindy can think of to becoming the “Brave Jane of the Iraqi War”.

      Unfortunately for Cindy and her ilk, the police are not the crew cut ex-World War II GI’s that made up the police force during the Vietnam War.  Ironically, most of them came of age during Vietnam and since that time.  For each of them, it’s just as important that Cindy and her fellow travellers have the right to express themselves, regardless of how ridiculous they appear.

      Indeed I enjoy reading quotes from the police that speak of “safeguarding the protesters’ constitutional rights to assemble and express themselves”.  You can often see disappointment in the faces of the protesters that no one wants to swing a truncheon and send them off to jail.

      Nope, you go right on ahead.  Let us know if you need any water or refreshments.

    1. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been one of a few who regularly posted on Loewenstein’s site and sternly countered his peculiar brand of “truth”. Since Loewy’s pathetic defence of his arguably racist position regarding the Bill Leak comic, I’ve decided to give the game up. The guy simply isn’t worth paying any attention to. He’s an intellectual lightweight with an ego problem. He shrinks from the slightest criticism, although not before signing off with some lame remark like “good luck with your delusions”. In short, the guy wouldn’t know “just what is the real truth” even if it was large and hairy and snuck up behind him in a prison shower block.

      There is no point engaging this guy (Antony, not the prison shower block guy – but steer clear of him, too). There are much more worthy adversaries in this country’s lefty blogosphere to tackle – and these bloggers tend to ignore Ant but are polite to him in the way you would be to a rather irritating but harmless relative during a Christmas lunch.

      Maybe time to turn our attention elsewhere?

    1. And who the fuck is Cindy Sheehan contracting to work her PR machine? Part of me thinks they’re doing a good job by drawing so much attention to her.

      The other part thinks that Sheehan’s stunts are so incredibly corny that the offending PR hack should be drummed out of the profession.

    1. Well don’t turn it to Damian Lataan at Webdiary.  The man is fucking nuts.  He actually said it is only a matter of time before we negotiate with the Islamist terrorists.  It has to happen, might as well begin today.

      Negotiate.  Negotiate what?  Whether they cut you down by cutting your head off or throwing you off a building?

      I still wonder if he’s not really Richard McEnroe having a lark as a leftwing looney.  No one can be that stupid.  Can they?

    1. 404 is a riot.  407,  unlawful assmebly, and 507, public nuisance, seem more appropriate.  In Cindy’s case you might as well throw in 5150, mentally disturbed person, too.

    1. Well I use to live in Florida and they have this thing called the Baker Act-where the state can have you committed.  The dispatch code for that is a 20.

      So I was off to look for that and found this instead-no kidding-

    1. ‘“I’ll be laying down and not getting up,” Sheehan said ‘

      I think that’s where I’ll walk my dog.

    1. Do you think they’ll lay a nice mat down for her, one perhaps with a montage from Michael Moore with a picture of every dead soldier, sailor, and airman she claims to be fighting for?

      Honestly, this could be interesting – let her chain herself to the fence and we can take bets on how long she stays. If she really had stones, she could erect a platform and promise to not come down until all the troops have come home…

      Cheers – DC

    1. #14: Good work, Mad! That is (a) hilarious, and (b) uniquely appropriate.

    1. How actually disappointing to find Robin was nowhere in sight. 😉

    1. So she’s going to set herself on fire, or just do another one of those lame “die-in” acts?

    1. While they are all nicely laying down in a row for us can we organise one of those Israeli bulldozers with blind driver?

    1. Hope she brings a good supply of man-nappies. Or has she reached the finger painting with feces stage??

      Anyway her hubby probably wouldnt notice the difference anyway.

    1. Cindy’s hubby has long since departed the premises.  He, at least, has good instincts.

      She can lie on the pavement in front of the White House from now till Doomsday for all I care, the stupid twat.  But I suspect she’ll get up soon enough when the only responses she gets are quiet snickers and/or complete indifference from the passers by.

    1. The US peace movement is pathetic, with its leaders coming from the Oprahfied suburbs.  When you had the likes of Bernadine Dohrn and Kathy Boudin of the Weather Underground and Emily Harris, Wendy Harris and the currently in jail Kathleen Soliah(Olsen) you had a phalanax of harpies that didn’t cry on TV or talk about their moral superiority.  I should note that as long as Cindy Sheehan and the resurrected Jane Fonda are the leaders of the peace movement then we can expect quite a few more years of war to finish off the fascists.

    1. The poor woman is fast running out of options to keep in the media spotlight. What next? Self immolation? Strip naked in the snow? Replace Christiane Amanppour or Larry King on CNN?

    1. They ought to let her lie down on the sidewalk.

      Then turn the sprinklers on – the lawns deserve a good watering before winter sets in.

  1. Just spool the pavement with cold water until she and whoever joins go away.
