Cindy Fumigates Her Wisdom

More golden nuggets from Cindy Sheehan in a recent interview while traveling in Ireland:

"The only reason we're fighting in Iraq is to make people rich and to control Iraq's natural resources. To me, that's deplorable and despicable and monstrous."

"about Bill Clinton . . . . His policies are responsible for killing more Iraqis that (sic) George Bush. I don't understand why to rise to the level of being president of my country one has to be a monster."

"our government also exploits our fears; they try to demonize people and marginalize people, so many people in my country don't believe that when we kill an Iraqi baby that that's an innocent human being."

Now even Bill Clinton is a blood-soaked warmonger; who knew? I wonder why the media outlets that gave Cindy a free ride all summer long took a pass on reporting this? Cindy is still newsworthy enough after all, since she is a (all expenses paid!!!) guest of honor at this year's World Economic Forum in Venezuela.
From the tone of this interview, it would seem that a free trip to Ireland did little to assuage the anger and vitriol Cindy is carrying inside her. What a shame. I truly hope she can mellow out a bit during her all-expense paid sojourn at the world social forum this week. Caracas is a beautiful city, the climate mild, and people are friendly, unless things have changed since my last foray there. It's a good place to hang out in a cafe with a little sangria and collect one's thoughts, and maybe unload some of the hateful baggage a person is carrying around to no good end. Oh well, one can only hope for the best. . .
