God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Cindy Sheehan has a new post over on Lady Arianna's Huffingtonpost (you know Arianna, she's one of us 'common' folk, only she has a private jet and houses with more square footage than Rhode Island.)

I'm not sure how Cindy kept from breaking her arm while writing this post and patting herself on the back. First, Mother Sheehan reminds us how she has suffered for us.

It has been one month and one week since I sat in a ditch in Crawford, Tx. I can hardly believe it when I think of it myself. So much has happened in that time, and really, so little.

Well, she is right about that last part - so little indeed. But as for sitting in a ditch? I think air-conditioned trailer with PR team and stylists is a BIT more accurate.

Then, Mother Sheehan regales us with the story of how she and the Sheehanistas singlehandedly saved the city of Algiers, Louisiana after the hurricane.

The Camp Casey III people were the first ones to bring any relief to Algiers. The people who were supposed to look after its citizens, our government, failed them.

Mother Sheehan then sermonizes to us that as the holder of the sacred scepter of Absolute Morality: "If I had a store with an inventory of insured belongings, and a tragedy happened, I would fling my doors open and tell everyone to take what they need: it is only stuff." That's very noble of you Mother Sheehan - but guess what? Wal-mart and more mom & pop stores than can be named beat you to the punch. Hmmm, I guess some of those capitalist warmongers don't quite fit your liberal, anti-free market paradigm.

Mother Sheehan then goes on to contradict herself. Apparently she has changed her mind about America, because she now feels that "...we have a country that is worth fighting for..." after all! Ah, inconsistency - the hallmark of a radical.

God, dear God! When will her 15 minutes end, O Lord!

Sweetness & Light gives you the details on Mother Sheehan's relief efforts in Algiers. You'll just be shock - SHOCKED I TELL YOU - at who she's teamed up with.

Is she a modern day Robin Hood? Say it at so Mother Sheehan!
