It’s Getting Worse

Cindy Sheehan is now appearing in an ad that will air in the Crawford area and anywhere else Bush visits. Ostensibly, this is because it is directed at Bush. Practically, the move limits the financial cost of ad buys while maximizing its exposure through the rest of the media. You can see the ad here.

Really it's just the usual agitprop for the left-wing. The only addition is that she had a son who died in Iraq. That latter fact is the only reason the anti-war folks and the left love her so much. Sheehan is extraordinarily useful to them and gives the veneer of credibility and patriotism that they have in short-supply.

One thing she does say in the ad is "Casey was only 24 years old…" I couldn't help but think, "Yes, and at only 24 that's plenty old enough to make one's own decisions, like re-enlisting in the military."
