Chicken Heart

Cindy Sheehan, the mother whose son Casey was killed in Iraq and who has been camped out in Crawford, Texas asking shit head in Chief to meet with her has been told that as of Thursday she will be considered a threat to national security and will be arrested.

I don't think it is a coincidence that Rice and Rumsfeld also arrive on Thursday. Not only that but on Friday the wealthy GOP donors arrive for a fundraiser. No doubt our dear leader considers it embarrassing having the mother of a fallen American soldier hanging around asking for an explanation of why her son's life was wasted on the the sands of Iraq and is therefore equal to Osama Bin Laden and deserves to be relieved of her right to protest and dissent.

Can you imagine a real president like Bill Clinton doing something like this when all it would take would be a few minutes of his time to put this whole issue to bed. I can't imagine AWOL's handlers haven't counseled him to make the effort and get some positive PR out of this issue. He must be so weak and afraid to admit that the Iraq debacle is not the cheery walk in the park that he predicted that he can't work up the courage to even face this woman and answer her questions.

If this is not an abuse of the power of the presidency I don't know what is.

Isn't it nice that terror alerts can now be turned on an off like tap water in time for the Friday news dump.

If you haven't, you should venture over to TruthOut's documentary on demonstrations by military people against the war talking about their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan and what they risk for speaking out, you can watch it here. It features Cindy Sheehan, and if you can listen to her talk about her son without getting a lump in your throat you are dangerously close to being a Bush clone.
