Wakky Moron Mommy Update

--posted by Tony Garcia on 8/12/2005

I hate to say it. No, actually I love saying it. I told you so!
The following was sent to Drudge (and presumably other news disseminators who choose not to run it). It is from the aunt and godmother of Casey Sheehan. Casey is the poor soldier who lost his life for his country and then lost his dignity because his mother is using his death to advance her politics.

From the aunt:
In response to questions regarding the Cindy Sheehan/Crawford Texas issue: Sheehan Family Statement:

The Sheehan Family lost our beloved Casey in the Iraq War and we have been silently, respectfully grieving. We do not agree with the political motivations and publicity tactics of Cindy Sheehan. She now appears to be promoting her own personal agenda and notoriety at the the expense of her son's good name and reputation. The rest of the Sheehan Family supports the troops, our country, and our President, silently, with prayer and respect.


Casey Sheehan's grandparents, aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.

Then there was this comment that I received trying to defend the Moron Mommy. I take that back. The comment was not a defense of anything...it only articulated an attack towards me.
She lost her son and you say she should be ashamed of herself. Stay out of things you do not understand, like losing a child. You owe her, and everyone who has ever lost a child, an apology. How dare you.

Again, this comment proves that the most vacuous things on blogs come from "anonymous". Nonetheless, I will first address the fact that you are proving my point. She is being used (and using herself) as a media whore to inject her politics. The media has been using her for their own agenda and ratings-hunt. But she is a part of it. Not only is she using misusing her son's death for own hatred for Bush but now she is using her son's death to attack others.

Her comments about Bill O'Reilly, who invited her on his show to defend herself from the charge that she is merely a political hack and opportunist dramatizing her son's death for her own partisanships:
She said O'Reilly's an "obscenity to the truth and an obscenity to humanity."

How is our little opportunist doing? Cindy Sheehan "said she is 'overwhelmed and amazed at all the support'" according to News Hounds (a left-leaning hack job of "news" reporting...kind of like Power Line on the right).

But let's really talk about Sheehan's "grieving for her son". This is a big lie. She may be grieving but her little drama queen publicity search is not about her son. For that she should be ashamed...I nominate her for crappy parent of the year.

Let's be honest. Her vigil is NOT about her son. She (and the media) are exploiting the death for her own politics. Disgusting. And it loses any credibility as a "grieving parent". Just like Berg's dad, she is using her child's death as a political opportunity.

She is a poor excuse for a grieving parent. If she honestly was doing this all for her son she would (1) not need to meet with the President, much less a second time, (2) request that the media go away, (3) not grant interviews, and (4) stop injecting her politics into the issue.

As a parent who is grieving she should focus on her son. Period.

She is not...thus it is painfully obvious to the open-minded that she is a partisan hack.

We all experience losses. We all know grief. The intelligent ones know that tertiary topics (like her hate-Bush rhetoric) are not to be put above the topic of grief...the death. Maybe to the leftist pimps who are using her the topic of grief is the war that caused her son's death. But to a good, caring and loving parent the grieving topic is about the death of the son and nothing more.

What a media whore she is. I feel no sorrow for her. The rest of the family, my heart aches for you twofold. It aches for your loss of Casey and it ahces for your having to deal with that Moron Mommy, Cindy.

The cynicism of Cindy Sheehan is brutally obvious to anyone with a pulse and 10 brain cells. Frank Rich at the Gray Lady just made the exploitation even more clear, "Only someone as adrift from reality as Mr. Bush would need to be told that a vacationing president can't win a standoff with a grief-stricken parent commandeering TV cameras and the blogosphere 24/7."

Apparently he doesn't understand the nature of the coverage on the blogospere!

She needs to go home.
