Sheehan Sells “Camp Casey” To Ex-TV Anchor

From her inamorata at the Associated Press

Cindy Sheehan sells land near Pres. Bush’s ranch to radio host


FORT WORTH, Texas Cindy Sheehan will sell her 5-acre war protest site near President Bush’s Crawford ranch to a California radio talk show host who will preserve it as a peace memorial, her spokeswoman said Friday.

Sheehan, who announced on Memorial Day that she is leaving the anti-war movement, will sell the land for $87,000 to Bree [sic] Walker, Sheehan’s spokeswoman Tiffany [sic] Burns said.

“Cindy is happy the land is going to be used for something positive,” Burns told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “But Cindy does not plan to have a continued presence there.”

A call to Walker, a former TV news anchorwoman, was not immediately returned.

Burns said Sheehan has been a guest on Walker’s radio program several times and that Walker supports Sheehan.

Sheehan initially planned to sell the land on eBay with an $80,000 starting bid but scrapped the idea after getting an offer from Walker, Burns said. Since she bought the property last year for $52,500, Sheehan’s group put in gravel roads, cleared brush, planted gardens and made other improvements that boosted the land’s value, Burns said.

Sheehan had said she would not willingly sell to Move America Forward, a pro-troop organization, which wanted to buy the land to erect a monument. The land in Crawford, about 100 miles south of Fort Worth, is near downtown and is about 7 miles from Bush’s ranch…

Sheehan plans to return to Crawford one last time the first weekend in July to sell the property’s remaining items, including a generator, refrigerator, freezer, stove and camping equipment, Burns said.

1sttofight posted a reference to this transaction as a comment to another Cindy Sheehan piece. But it probably warrants its own thread.

As his post noted, it’s good to see a member of our objective watchdog media showing their true colors. (Though this is hardly news, as Bree has even worked for Air America since she got too long in the tooth for TV news.)

But isn’t it good to see that Mother Sheehan is still finding ways to profit from her son’s death? (The land was originally purchased with his death benefits, according to Cindy.)

And speaking of inamorata, it’s also reassuring to hear that despite having resigned as the face of the anti-America movement, Cindy Sheehan has still managed to retain the services of the lovely Ms. Burns in some capacity.

Sheehan initially planned to sell the land on eBay with an $80,000 starting bid but scrapped the idea after getting an offer from Walker, Burns said.

In truth Cindy could not sell the land the way she wanted to via eBay.

But of course Ms. Burns wasn’t hired for her veracity.
