The Sliming Of Iraq Mom Cindy Sheehan...
The Huffington Post | August 10, 2005
The right-wing media is working overtime to discredit Iraq mom Cindy Sheehan, who is protesting outside President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Tex.
On Thursday, Fred Barnes, executive editor of the Weekly Standard, called Sheehan a “crackpot” on Fox News.
John Podhoretz called her protest “political theater” National Review’s blog, The Corner.
This morning, the Drudge Report posted a banner headline, “BUSH PROTESTING MOM CALLS FOR 'ISRAEL OUT OF PALESTINE'; VOWS NOT TO PAY TAXES.”
And conservative columnist and blogger Michelle Malkin put up an “unconfirmed report” that Sheehan’s husband, Patrick, had filed for a divorce.
Sheehan’s son Casey was killed April 4, 2004, while fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Cindy Sheehan has refused to leave the president’s ranch until he meets with her.
