Cindy Sheehan’s Trial For Protesting Obama’s Iraq Policies To Start Today


You remember Cindy Sheenhan, right? Her 15 minutes of Bush deranged fame is over, but, she still has a wee bit of credit left over

The trial for activist Cindy Sheehan over her arrest earlier this year is scheduled to begin in D.C. Superior Court.

Sheehan was among eight anti-war protesters arrested March 20 after laying coffins at a White House fence. She was charged with crossing a police line.

Imagine the uproar from the Left had she been arrested and put on trial while Bush was president, especially for the above reason in the above place. Yes, she has been arrested before, and this is the second time in front of the White House. Yet, she has mostly avoided any trials.

Anyhow, while I don’t agree with her unhinged politics, at least she has stayed true to them. Notice now that Obama is president, most demonstrations over Operation Iraqi Freedom have died out. The calls for withdrawal are gone. The complaints, the speeches on the House and Senate floors are gone. It’s almost like they were all simply politics, rather than true beliefs, from most on the left.
