Support for Cindy Sheehan grows, and grows and grows.
The ethically challenged leader of the most ethically challenged administration in the history of the United States, George W(idow-maker). Bush has an uncanny habit of saying things that come back to embarrass him and the country. We all remember "Bring 'Em On" or "Mission Accomplished" or "Fool me once shame on me, fool me twice shame on me" Well, he's done it again. While speaking to a group of mothers who have lost their children in Iraq he made another one of those statements, not realizing that one of those mothers was listening to him carefully when he said “Our men and women who’ve lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan and in this war on terror have died in a noble cause and a selfless cause.” So Cindy Sheehan, that one mother who listened carefully now wants an explanation from Mr. Bush. She wants to know what was that "noble" cause. She went to Crawford, Texas, where she was restricted to a ditch. Two representatives from the White House politely told Ms. Sheehan that they would address her issues, but just as politely she told them that she wanted to speak to the President only. As the Bush camp along with it's long time ally Clear Channel prepare for a massive rally around the flag......and especially the war to commemorate 9/11 which will be headlined by Clint Black. Cindy Sheehan will not go away. She plans to follow him back to Washington if she gets no response in Crawford. The ethically challenged selected President apparently expected Ms. Sheehan to just go away after a while. Not only has she ruined his record breaking vacation, she has attracted a lot of attention, even from the mainstream media( which rarely says anything that doesn't meet the president's approval)is watching and reporting.
