My Favorite Shrill Is Back!

My favorite shrill, anti-war poster, used napkin, Cindy Sheehan is back and trying to mess up President Barack Obama's vacation.

You all know that Sheehan was used to be the poster shrill by both the left and right, and she put up a tent near George Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

On Thursday, she and a band of anti-war protesters turned up outside the media center used by journalists covering Obama's vacation on the well-heeled east coast resort island of Martha's Vineyard. Neat.

"The reason I am here is because ... even though the facade has changed in Washington DC, the policies are still the same," Sheehan told a handful of journalists, against a backdrop of her "Camp Casey" banner.

She told US peace activists to wake up and protest Obama's escalation of the war in Afghanistan, and complained that despite the president's anti-war stance, US troops remained in Iraq.

"We have to realize, it is not the president who is power, it is not the party that is in power it is the system that stays the same, no matter who is in charge."

"We are here to make the wars unpopular again," she said.

Wow. Looks like the left created a monster. They tossed her to the side after Obama won, but look at that, she's come back and is still on message.

Well, I'll at least admit that she's still holding to her convictions.
Which is more than I can say for any elected Democrat.
