Cindy Sheehan: Busy Mom
Via SayAnything we learn that Cindy Sheehan has yet to buy a headstone for Casey.
She has been too busy grieving, I suppose.
P.S. SA commenter Bat One says, "I'm not at all surprised. It would take the intelligence of a prune to think that any of this Saint Cindy Roadshow had anything at all to do with Casey."

That is really sad... She really does need to go home! Why didn't his father do that since she is so gooned out?

Ya, why don't the other sheehans step up? I am holding up on judgement, maybe they didn't want one. like to hear the lefts responce to this.

Cindy Sheehan got arrested the other day for something at the UN didn't she? I really don't pay much attention to her.
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at March 8, 2006 07:37 PM
Ken,...Did you see the monument to herself? Uh oh!

Why do you pick on gold star mothers?

Sorry, I guess I shouldn't be picking on a SAINT, who can do no wrong, ever.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at March 9, 2006 03:29 PM
Will, this is a really tasteless post.
No matter what you think of Cindy Sheehan's political views, for all you know she may have a perfectly valid reason for not putting a headstone on her son's grave.
Don't be so quick to judge.
Posted by: Andy at March 9, 2006 05:11 PM
Well I would certainly like to hear what that 'good reason' might be.
And it better be a damn good reason, to explain what certainly looks like deep disrespect at this moment.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at March 9, 2006 06:03 PM
Ken,...She has not had time because she has been too busy being a media Hog! If that is not a good enough reason she has been making friends with Hugo and Al and getting arrested and camping and trying to talk to the President and goodness knows who else and what else?... She is busy! How could she get the time to get a headstone? Just because she is in charge of Casey's estate doesn't mean she has time for stuff like that?
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at March 9, 2006 06:28 PM
Ken - sorry I didn't realise you posted this. The comment was, of course, directed at you.
Who knows why she has chosen not to put up a headstone. Could be because she has decided she thinks she can better honour his memory through her protests.
Could be she is unbalanced by his death, can't bear to put up a headstone yet, and her misguided protests are her way of coping. Death makes people irrational sometimes.
Could be because she is a cynical s*&t.
Could be because she simply doesn't want a headstone (some people don't, believe it or not).
Could be for any number of reasons.
None of which are actually our business.
Ken - if you have a problem with the woman's politics, or the way she is conducting her politics, address those points. Don't disrespect her son by bringing his grave into a political argument. By doing so, you are committing exactly the same sin as Cindy Sheehan - using this poor man's memory for your own political ends.
Posted by: Andy at March 10, 2006 01:50 AM
I am not the one who politicized his death - she is - and now she is cynically manipulating her son's death for her own agenda, an agenda her son did not even share. For proof of that, look no further than the fact that he reenlisted.
You do have a point though, perhaps it is disrespectful, though of course whatever disrespect I have is certainly not towards Casey, quite the opposite, the man died fighting for this country and deserves honors.
What is done is done though, I am not taking this post down, I stand by it, though I do see your point of view.
Posted by: Ken McCracken at March 10, 2006 04:18 AM
Andy, IF Cindy Sheehan were really interested in honoring the memory of her son? She wouldn't be out doing and saying the things that she is doing! "Honoring" is paying homage to dignify and admire someone! She has not done anything like that at all. Casey Sheehan died fighting for his country. His decision was made on his own. He was not drafted or forced in any way. It was his own conscientious, dedication for his country to go to war! Cindy is hanging with anti american terrorist thugs! Reality is she has neglected doing anything to honor Casey!

Ken - fair enough - I wouldn't expect you to take the post down. I think this discussion gives anyone who reads the post plenty of food for thought. They themselves can decide what their opinion of the post is.
Sorry if my initial posts were overly direct - I clearly hadn't had my morning coffee yet.
(Thanks for the compliment about Taking Aim, by the way. Glad you enjoyed the site).
Zsa Zsa - just to be clear. I never at any point said that Cindy Sheehan was interested in honouring her son's memory. What I said was that, by posting this story, in my opinion, Ken also dishonours this dead man's memory.
Although, having said that, I tend to the point of view that Cindy Sheehan herself - who I sincerely believe is a grieving mother - thinks that, in following her current path, she is honouring her son's memory. I think she is wrong, though, and is not actually honouring her son's memory.
Posted by: Andy at March 10, 2006 12:25 PM
She really is sick! ...
Posted by: Zsa Zsa at March 10, 2006 02:54 PM
This Story needs to be told!
Cindy was a nut-job before her son's death. She now has used his blood to further her own agenda and because she lost her son we are forced to listen to her B.S. for some reason. Just to clarify for everyone SHE DID NOTHING, her son was the one who PAID IN BLOOD for her right to be a dumb-a$$.
I am no huge supporter for President Bush or the war in general (especially as it drags on and on), but are her little 'stunts' helping anything or honoring the sacrifice of her son for this nation?
