LANGLEY, Virginia — A group led by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has protested near the CIA's headquarters and former Vice President Dick Cheney's home in northern Virginia.Did I miss something here? Isn't Barack Obama now the POTUS? Isn't Fast-Talkin' Joe Biden now our esteemed Veep? So why is Mother Sheehan bugging a has-been pol like former Veep, Dick Cheney who left office a year ago? Who's running the war now, Cindy?
Answer: it's not really about the war and it never was. Poor Cindy simply needed another 15 minutes of fame. She knew instinctively that she wouldn't get it by dumping on the Barack and Biden show. The media simply wouldn't cover it. So Cindy went after the usual suspects. And, amazingly, she got the coverage from Fox!
Pathetic. That is so yesterday, Cindy.
But I have to hand it to media whores like Sheehan. They know how to get the lapdog journalists to cover them. All you have to do is round up the usual suspects. It's all Bush's fault anyway.
