God Bless Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan made a name for herself by using her son’s death to gain the public stage and then making a nuisance of herself through her petulant behavior. Democrats and liberals embraced her, and made her Queen. Her harangues against President Bush were the stuff of legend.

Proving what so many believe about her, that she is out of control, Ms. Sheehan created another spectacle as Democrats were taking the first official steps as leaders of the U.S. Congress for the first time in 12 years. As Congressman Rahm Emanuel was speaking to the party faithful, a group that included Ms. Sheehan began chanting about evacuating our troops from Iraq, drowning out Mr. Emanuel and forcing him to give up.

Rude? You betcha. But, of course, that sort of behavior is part and parcel of Ms. Sheehan’s in-your-face strategy. Only now, the Democrats are in her sights.

God bless Cindy Sheehan. She is an equal opportunity basher. She and the rest of the Left’s angry fringe—flirting with lunacy, or perhaps securely wrapped in it—will now become a problem for Democrats, who will not satisfy them, either. And God bless Cindy Sheehan, because she obviously needs it.
