Dem Leaders Duck “Hero Mother” Cindy Sheehan

And her paid Commie cohorts.

From the Charlotte Observer:

Top Dems leave as protest nears

Party split between anti-war activists and prominent critics

WASHINGTON As the anti-war movement arrives in Washington this weekend, many Democrats are leaving.

Nationally known Democratic war critics, including Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, Russell Feingold of Wisconsin and John Kerry of Massachusetts, won’t attend what sponsors say will be a big anti-war rally Saturday in Washington.

Today’s leading Democrats head a party divided over the war, and many leaders are wary of standing with anti-war activists, who represent much of the party’s base. The divide between anti-war activists and Democratic leaders underscores a challenge the party faces in the 2006 congressional elections and beyond.

En route to Washington for the rally, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan protested outside Clinton’s New York office. "She knows that the war is a lie, but she is waiting for the right time to say it," Sheehan said. "You say it or you are losing your job."

Spokesmen for the Democrats who are skipping the anti-war event all said they had schedule conflicts. But some leading anti-war activists aren’t buying it.

"There are a lot of people here who are wondering, where are the Democrats?" said Tom Andrews, a former Democratic House member from Maine who’s now the national director of Win Without War.

"The Democratic Party has an identity crisis on this issue. We need voices. We need leadership," Andrews said. "But fear is driving them."

Fear of what? Cindy and her merry band insist they are in the majority. They claim that 62% of the citizenry want our troops to surrender to the terrorists.

They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?
