Cindy Sheehan: No one is paying attention to me! Quick! Arrest me!

Desperate times call for desperate measures.  If you gave a protest and nearly no one paid any attention, what would you do?

You’d do like Cindy Sheehan, and you’d get yourself arrested.   Not for something most people would agree with – like defying an unjust law written by an unjust dictator – no, Mrs. Sheehan decided that she would violate a very clearly defined and specific law regarding White House security.   Three warnings and she’s arrested.

So what’s next for Mrs. Sheehan?  She’s had her meeting with the President, then had the gall to demand a second meeting, then conceded she was glad she didn’t meet with him, then began making crazed demands including getting our military of ‘occupied’ Louisiana.

And you know who is laughing at this?  Not President Bush, not the so-called Vast Right-Wing Majority.   No, the only people who are enjoying the spectacle of this poor, grieving mother is Michael Moore and his ilk, for they believe seeing a manipulated soul being led away in handcuffs is a ticket to political greatness.

Time will tell.
