Cindy Sheehan (Fails At) Stalking Karl Rove

Today's Cindy non-news from her fan Angela Brown of the DNC's Associated Press:

Sheehan's rally disrupts Rove reception

By ANGELA K. BROWN, Associated Press Writer

Chanting "Try Rove for treason," Cindy Sheehan and more than 50 other war protesters disrupted a reception before President Bush's top adviser Karl Rove spoke at a fundraiser Saturday.

One woman was arrested during a scuffle with police after Sheehan and the anti-war demonstrators rushed toward the closed doors and kept chanting loudly after the guests went into the dinner.

Rove was speaking to the Associated Republicans of Texas, and ticket prices started at $200. He was not in the Renaissance Hotel lobby during the reception.

"I want him arrested. He planned the war that killed my son," Sheehan told officers guarding the door…

Earlier, wearing shorts and T-shirts while guests of the lobby reception walked past in sequined dresses and expensive suits, anti-war demonstrators carried American flags and signs, including one that read "Check your conscience." A few protesters unfurled a large banner from a sixth-floor hotel balcony that read "Rove v. Truth: No Contest. Pink slip Rove."

Those at the reception sipped their drinks and largely ignored the protesters before they started chanting. One man looked at the group and said, "Go Bush!"

Earlier Saturday, the group of more than 70 gathered at the hotel entrance, carrying a large banner that read, "Rove: Guilty of crimes against humanity." Ann Wright, a former U.S. diplomat who resigned in 2003 in protest over the war, yelled through a bullhorn, "Karl Rove, you are a criminal !" …

Gravity gets the better of Cindy's sister and fellow "faster," Dede Miller.

Regular readers will recognize this as a stunt Mother Sheehan learned from her handlers of Code Pink and the loathsome Medea Benjamin.

And what exactly are Karl Rove’s crimes again? I mean, besides being a Republican.

Do note that Karl Rove wasn’t even at the reception.

That’s our Cindy.
