Remember me, guys?

In a way, I actually feel a little sorry for Cindy Sheehan. Once a person has experienced the energizing rush that comes with sudden fame, many become addicted to it and it is difficult to let go. Now that Katrina has pushed Sheehan's story to the back pages, it is beginning to dawn on her that the media never really loved her after all. She was just just the latest excuse for making the President look bad and her cause has now been replaced. Now in a desperate cry for the attention she has lost, she is attempting to make Katrina her new cause. Drudge has the story:

Celebrity anti-war protester, fresh off inking a lucrative deal with Speaker's Bureau, has demanded at the HUFFINGTON POST and MICHAEL MOORE'S website that the United States military must immediately leave 'occupied' New Orleans.

"I don't care if a human being is black, brown, white, yellow or pink. I don't care if a human being is Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, or pagan. I don't care what flag a person salutes: if a human being is hungry, then it is up to another human being to feed him/her. George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don't fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest."

That last remark is right out of the Democrat playbook and this is why the media seldom quoted her during her Crawford vigil. If her decidedly liberal philosophy and radical tone became apparent, the nation would soon realize this was a grieving mom with an agenda. Sheehan undoubtedly has experienced genuine pain over her son's death but her cause goes well beyond Casey -- who by the way is nowhere mentioned in this latest anti-Bush rant.
