Today's issue of Page 16 News, brings some insight into "Peace Mom" Cindy Sheehan's home life that helps show exactly how much her "I Hate Bush Campaign" is about her son who volunteered to re-enlist, volunteered to go to Iraq, and unfortunately was killed in action while serving a mission he volunteered for. The other article in Page 16 News is a humerous little tid-bit about Democrats and their organization skills. Both pieces give Hat Tips to Willisms.
It's rather amusing to see how Cindy Sheehan has traveled the world, gotten buddy-buddy with some of the world's most socialist leaders, collected Casey's $250,000 military life insurance policy, bought a new VW bug, received all kinds of gifts from her moon-bat friends, all supposedly in the name of her son Casey. And now, we will take a moment to mourn Casey as we look at his grave:
If you're wondering...Yes. Casey's grave is the only one in the picture without a tombstone. Cindy has had over 2 years to order one for her "beloved" son, and yet, she is yet to show him at least one little (FREE) sign of respect.
And you know, for all of the pity that Cindy asks for...this stunt sure has paid off big for her.
Don't beleive it's Casey's Grave? Look to the full, two page shot she did lying on his grave for Vanity Fair.
The next piece is about an op-ed done by Michael Goodwin of NY Daily News, entitled, "Will's Follies Go On"
"Will Rogers rides again. The Dust Bowl era humorist, who once famously said, "I don't belong to any organized party. I'm a Democrat," would feel right at home in his party today.
Not to worry, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada told the paper: "By the time the election rolls around, people are going to know where Democrats stand."
That's a relief. Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen. Only seven months to go until we learn what the party believes in.
...Wait, it gets better. "Even the party's five-word 2006 motto has preoccupied congressional Democrats for months," according to the article, which quotes Reid as saying: "We had meetings where senators offered suggestions. We had focus groups. We worked hard on that. ...It's a long, slow, arduous process."
So far, the best and brightest have produced this motto: "Together, America Can Do Better." It does come with a little baggage, however - John Kerry used it in 2004, and you know how that worked out.
Not everybody likes the motto, and The Post says: "There is an effort afoot to drop the word 'together.' It tests well in focus groups and audiences, Democratic sources said, but it makes the syntax incorrect."
Yet even a blue-state copy editor might not be able to save the slogan, for The Post adds dryly, "Governors privately scoff at the slogan."
... Will Rogers saw the problem coming 70 years ago. He's still right, and we're all still laughing."
Yup. That about sums it up.
