Now they're bashing the mothers

Cindy Sheehan lost her son in the Bushco insanity of the Iraq war. Like America itself, she has slowly come to her senses and recognizes that she has been raped. She's not willing to stay quiet.

And now the right-wing rah-rah chorus is going after her. They're calling her an agent of terrorists, questioning her patriotism, threatening to arrest her.

Bear in mind this right-wing chorus is notoriously absent itself from the ranks of the Iraq-liberators. Young Republicans are far more interested in the stock market and their job prospects; they prefer to let the lower classes do their fighting for them.

Cindy Sheehan may represent a turning point. The sheeplike American population suddenly realizes that their children are more important to them than the profits of Halliburton subsidiaries. Duh!

Oh god, I only wish they had realized it sooner. Back in the brutal winter of 2003 I and legions of others marched on public spaces like the Circle in Indianapolis against the war we knew Bushco intended to launch whether there were "weapons of mass destruction" or not. The media (those whores) portrayed us as fools and traitors. We were joined by brave local patriots like U.S. Rep. Julia Carson and former Rep. Andy Jacobs, and ignored by the more timid, finger-in-the-wind, consensus-seeking politicos like Mayor Bart Peterson and Senator Evan Bayh. It's those very consensus builders on whom I blame the war the most. If Democrats like Bayh had had courage, they could have stopped Bu$hco's madness in its tracks.

Now the reality is getting too grim. The spinmasters can no longer hide it. Condi Rice has no clothes. This is a debacle of the worst order.

Take heart and look at this chart of Bush's ratings over the course of his terms.

Follow the trendline... America is angry. Bush will be banished.

She could end up being the Rosa Parks of the anti-war movement and more power to her.
