CINDY SHEEHAN: Still Lurking About

This is actually a very good article about the waxing and waning of Cindy Sheehan. Read it here. But don't be too quick to celebrate the end of her 15 minutes - she's still got a lot of bullsh#t left in her, I'm sure. Key Snipet:
She attracted what in essence became a traveling troupe of anti-war activists and p.r. agents and usual suspects, and the story just ceased to be as appealing, Sabato said. It didnt seem quite as natural and original, it became more of the same.

Sheehans recent move from Vacaville to Berkeley is notable, he said. When you say Berkeley, anyone whos been around for a few decades associates liberalism and anti-war movements with the place.

When you come out of someplace that looks like middle America, you look like the people you're trying to reach. Its tougher to sustain public interest in your movement when you come out of Berkeley. Where you're from matters, where you position yourself matters.
Most nauseating line: Sheehan insists shes following only the dictates of her broken heart. Gag, retch, snicker.
