Sheehan: pathetic, embarrassing, ungrateful 

Well, it's like "NJDEVILSLADY4" observes on AOL's "Reaction Online":

"Cindy Sheehan had her 15 minutes of fame."

That's right! This lady has the audacity to interrupt the pleasant vacations and command the attention, not only of the "American people," but of the "president" himself? Not only is she so craven as to shove her unphotogenic mug in the nation's news cameras, and childishly demand her "fame," but all she's had to suffer for it is a dead son? Is that fair? And, true, her 24-year-old son was killed in Iraq--but isn't that fact cancelled out by her having a clear partisan agenda?

And take this AOL poll:

Do you agree with Sheehan?
Yes 53%
No 47%

Do you think the poll question means "Do you agree with the existence of Sheehan?" or "Do you agree that Sheehan deserves to be on televison?"?

What kind of "reality" show is this anyway? A grief-stricken woman camping in a tent in a ditch in rural Texas? Does she at least have to endure daily "challenges," or rope a steer to win an electronic kayak, or something?

So, like, uncool Cindy Sheehan. I'm going to slip on my rubber "Angel" and "Courage" bracelets and change the channel.

Now let's get underway with the ritual sacrifice.
