Stop the abuse of a grieving mother! I mean it!

Nope. Cindy Sheehan has NOT become a left-wing version of Paula Jones. Seriously. Stop snickering. I mean it, people.

In his article, "Deploying Cindy's Anti-War Army", The Wahington Post's Dana Millbank writes is leaving nothing to chance as it tries to make Sheehan into a national icon. It supplied demonstrators with advice on media relations. ("When talking to reporters, it is OK to keep repeating the same message over and over. It may feel strange to do that, but the reporters are used to it.") designed printable placards for participants proclaiming "Dogs for Cindy" and "Moms for Peace." It directed vigil hosts to declare "if you have pets your guests could be allergic to." "We're also asking that you bring pictures of children," requested, and it didn't matter "whether or not you have a child serving in the military." "Every movement has a moment when it torques up," said Tom Matzzie, the group's Washington director. "Cindy is the Rosa Parks of the peace movement in 2005. Cindy, Rosa Parks, Paul Revere -- they're people who try to start something."

So remember, Sheehan has been bestowed with "absolute moral authority" by MoDo and MoveOn wants to make her Rosa Parks ... or failing that, at least a minor American hero like Paul Revere. So, she's definitely not been co-opted and is not playing politics when she mentions PNAC, impeaching Bush, or our policies in Israel. With this kind of absolute moral authority, those of us who supported the invasion of Iraq must simply defer to her on all matters of national security, for to refute her arguments is to simply be conservative BlogoBullies and smear her and the memory of her dead son.
