Not having made headlines for a few weeks and maybe feeling overshadowed by the deaths of James Brown and former President, Gerald Ford, media whore Sheehan had to get herself, along with four other moonbat peaceniks, arrested down in Crawford, Texas today.
What I find especially curious about this move today is that yesterday, Wednesday, another article was ran titled Cindy Sheehan No Longer on Tips of Everyone’s Tongues by Fox news.
According to Texas Department of Public Safety Lt. R.T. King Sheehan and the others were laying or sitting in the road near President Bush’s ranch for about 20 minutes and did not heed requests to move. They were arrested for blocking the road, which caught Vice President Dick Cheney’s motorcade in the traffic backed up.
A bond clerk at the McLennan County Jail in Waco said they were arrested on a misdemeanor charge of obstructing a highway passageway, which could result in spending the night in jail, if they weren’t arraigned this evening.
Earlier, Sheehan and others were arrested outside the U.S. Mission to the U.N., resulting in a conviction of trespassing. The judge then said they would not face punishment as long as they stayed out of trouble for the next six months, and then they were ordered to pay $95 in court surcharges.
To me, she violated the terms of her previous conviction and should now be turned over to the New York Courts and sent to jail for the one year sentence she could have originally received for the trespass charge. Her attorney, Robert Gottlieb, said the terms of the previous conviction meant she will not face any punishment as long as she leads a "law-abiding life." "There is nothing to say that what she was arrested for today means that she is not living a law-abiding life," Gottlieb told the AP. "She may in fact be innocent." Innocent? Blocking a public passageway and refusing to move when ordered to by the authorities and he says she may be innocent?
He added that he anticipates no troubles for the New York courts and sadly, I doubt she will either. Moonbat media whore that she is, she continues to skate because she presents herself as a “grieving Mom.” I wonder if she even remembers her heroic son’s name.
Previously she said, "The moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute." Then, she placed crosses with every name of every troop killed in Iraq, without any permission from their parents, many of which came and took down the crosses and forbid her from using their son’s names in her misguided quest.
Did she offer her support to the large group of Gold Star parents that traveled to Iraq to see matters first hand, unlike she has done? If she has, I haven’t seen it. I doubt she would anyways as they are opposed to her stance. Download and read the groups report at Gold Star Families Iraq Study Group (requires Adobe Acrobat) and see if their “moral authority” has been supported by either Sheehan or our lamestream media.
Sheehan remains clueless as well. In a July 5, 2006 post she wrote at Michael Moore.com, she said in response to the often heard statement, “freedom isn’t free,” “Well, I'm sorry, but the very definition of freedom is that it is free. Freedom is a birthright of every American and we have the Bill of Rights to prove it. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say anywhere that our young people have to fight insane wars for greedy swine to earn anyone any kind of freedoms. If freedom wasn't free it would be called "expensivedom."
Since our troops are fighting to give the Iraqi people their freedom, which protects our own, incidentally, are they the “greedy swine” she mentions above?
Additionally, her claim is tantamount to saying something like ‘we don’t have crime, we have laws against it.’
She has gotten a taste of the limelight and apparently can’t handle it when she isn’t center of attention in the media, leading to ever more bizarre behavior on her part. Such as her meeting with Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela who is also an ardent Bush hater.
Even the Kerry campaign, which it has been said got her stirred up in the first place, walked away from her and radical leftist views and antics. If someone as loony and leftist as John ‘F’in Kerry abandons her, she’s even more fringe than one could imagine.
