Sheehan arrested

About a month ago I had compared Cindy Sheehan to an infant sitting in the middle of the floor crying and then looking up periodically to make sure everyone was watching. She has proven this to be the case today as she steps up her efforts to make it back to the front page:

WASHINGTON Sep 26, 2005 -- Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who has used her son's death in Iraq to spur the anti-war movement, was arrested Monday while protesting outside the White House.

Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.

Sheehan was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."

Yes they are. But that's not a plus for your side.

**Update 6:32 pm**

Drudge has posted a photo of the "grieving" mom being carried off to jail. This is what the "whole world is watching"...
