Sheehan now looks to take on Congress (Reuters, 8/26/05)

Iraq war protester Cindy Sheehan said Friday she plans to expand her focus to Congress, starting with House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, a Bush ally and fellow Texan.

Mr. DeLay doesn't need to act presidential and can be honest about what she is.

You've outdone even yourself with the headline OJ.

In another week or so, she'll be attacking the Joint Chiefs. Then the officer corps. And when she is in Lafayette Park, she'll start in on the "baby-killers".

CNN will be there, every step of the way. Along with the rest of the herd. The network morning shows might even move to D.C. for a week in September to (bask in her glow), oops, to cover her.

But soon, Ben (of Ben/Jerry) will pull the plug. Even the hard left has to know this woman is hurting them badly. Just like the protestors at Walter Reed. Nobody will cut losers like that any slack, except other losers.

Since DeLay is completely perephrial to this whole thing and has made no statments about Cindy at all, if the families of other Iraq war soldiers who were killed wanted to, they could join up with DeLay and meet Ms. Sheehan during her Houston stopover. Then Sheehan could either meet with the congressman and the others -- who under the Maureen Dowd rules have the same moral authority Cindy does -- or she could balk and demand special treatment and a meeting apart from those families, which no doubt would endear her even more to the bulk of the American public than her high negative ratings already indicate.

DeLay's already taken several steps in the district that seem aimed at boosting his vote percentage this next time around. Now the Fringe Left is going to help him? What a gift!
