Cindy Sheehan To Set-Up Camp In DC

From a joyous San Francisco Chronicle:

Cindy Sheehan to Install Anti-Obama Camp at Washington Monument

Looking back at the aughts, who can forget indelible images of a war and a president that should never have been, and the makeshift camp set up outside President George W. Bush’s Texas ranch at Crawford Texas that challenged them both.

For those feeling nostalgic about the past decade, fret not: It’s apparently not going away.

Energizer Bunny war protester Cindy Sheehan, who last year ran for Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco congressional seat, plans to set up a new anti-war camp near the Washington Monument to protest ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

"It’s true," Sheehan said in an e-mail, adding that she couldn’t discuss her plans until after our deadline.
In 2005, during George W. Bush’s five week vacation at Prarie Chapel Ranch near Crawford, Texas, Sheehan pitched a tent by the side of the road near the ranch’s entrance demanding an audience with the president at which she would ask questions about the Iraq war, where her son Casey was killed.

She then rode a wave of fame to become the country’s most prominent war protester. In 2008 Sheehan campaigned to unseat Nancy Pelosi. The House of Representatives Speaker had not moved to impeach President Bush, Sheehan said.

Now she’s announced she will establish a Washington D.C. based tent village like the one she built at Crawford.

Angered by President Barack Obama’s war-justifying Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Sheehan said she will re-establish Camp Casey near the Washington Monument, setting up tents, and demanding that her anti-war message be heard.

"At first I believed that the Republicans were the war party, but it became increasingly clear to me that it doesn’t matter what party a president is — the policies of war continue on," Sheehan told the Fort Worth Star Telegram, for a Dec. 20 story. "He should devise a plan for troop withdrawal that is as speedy as safely possible and combine economic growth and democracy building in our occupied countries with a speedy withdrawal. No occupations will save billions of dollars a month and maybe our economy could start to improve, too."

We suspect all this means is that Cindy Sheehan is going to be moving into Code Pink’s townhouse on Capitol Hill along with the other full professional protesting harridans.

There really is no place near the Mall that would permit her display for long.

    Steve, if there is a God, he will see fit that Cindy is doing her protest from the basement cell at D.C. Metro jail. Right next to Bubba the Mangler!!

    Cindy Sheehan? She is sooooo last decade. Americans got tired of her drivel the day Blammo got elected. She’s a cassette tape that got sticky stuff all over it under the car seat.

    She’s as relevant as a skate key.

      Not too bright, either. Obama’s vacationing in Hawaii and she’s setting up tent-city where??!! Washington, DC. In the dead of winter, yet. Brilliant!!

      It’s hard to tell who’s the moron. The Moron? Or the “protest-the-Moron” moron. Seems fitting, though.

    Not even Obama deserves this.

    Because Chicago is just too cold!

    I suspect she has never spent a winter in DC. It can be even more miserable there. While Chicago can be cold, DC can spend weeks at 33 degrees and raining in the winter. I will take cold and dry over raining and just barely above freezing any day. DC isn’t that far from Valley Forge and Washington didn’t have a great time there one winter in the 18th century.

      As one who grew up 50 miles outside of DC I can attest that it gets DANG cold for long stretches. A damp, in your bones kind of cold.

      Ha…I love it…her own pea sized brain is going to get the best of her. We can expect no less…or more… from her.

      Maybe she will join the other crazys who set up protest camps across the street from the WH in that pretty little park..;You know the one…where the bums accost the toursists for sitting on “their” benches…I mean they need their sleep.

      But I’m sure they will get along fine with each other…
