At the risk of being mean I had to laugh when I saw this photo of the super nice, ethical, civil liberty champion Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez kissing Cindy (moonbat) Sheehan. I felt sorry for Chavez. Imagine Sheehan's face fastly approaching yours! If you had never seen Sheehan's face before you might look at this photo and think gee the guy closes his eyes when he greets someone the first time and gives them the handshake equivalent of a kiss? But in fact I think this was the only thing he could do as the horse face came closer to his! I don't feel bad about being mean here since frankly I see Sheehan as a charlatan and in the top 5 of most unpatriotic Americans. To embrace a foreign leader and join him in baseless demeaning criticism of her own country and its leader is bad enough. But imagine if she was a Venezuelan and visited Bush and joined Bush in his criticism of Chavez.....I'm sure her homecoming would be very different from what she will experience upon returning to the U.S. Isn't it amazing the bedfellows that the most outspoken liberal media darlings keep?
And I for one will support (but not with a vote) Sheehan's bid to unseat Feinstein! Could you imagine the material for us political junkies? Not to mention how anyone like Sheehan actually getting traction as a candidate would fracture Democrats into the real leftist wackos on one side and more centrist liberals on the other.....a nice bonus for conservatives! So make sure you support Sheehan for the Senate!
Alas, the WaPo's Charles Krauthammer offered some opinion on Sheehan being a bad choice for an antiwar voice that I think would be the achilles heel of her Senate campaign! To refresh your memory Sheehan calls Bush "lying bastard"; "filth-spewer and warmonger"; "biggest terrorist in the world". She blames Israel for son's death as well. Complained when the media stopped paying attention to her, and sides with what she calls "freedom fighters" in Iraq who killed her son.
