Understanding Cindy Sheehan

It has occurred to me that Cindy Sheehan's extended antics, which obviously are all about her and hardly about Casey, remind me of the local Chamber of Commerce functions: a bunch of dorks who never got a date in High School (or, the guys and gals who are trying to "extend the run" into their 50s) who love being like, so totally cool. The need to belong is strong. When you've been an outcast your whole sad-sack life, letting go of the "love", even if it is just a nasty one-night-media-stand, is really hard to do.

Cindy does for pink, what Satan does for Red. May the fashion gods have mercy on her sorry soul.

Sheehan is clearly starved for attention and will do anything to receive it. Basically she's exhibiting the same behaviour a child does when not receiving the attention he or she desires. However Sheehan combines that with a psychotic dishonesty which makes it even more distasteful.
