Sheehan Says ‘Peace Out’

Thank goodness! Cindy Sheehan has decided to cut and run from her endless anti-war movement. She has spent several years annoying everyone with war protests that (as far as I can see) have been quite futile. It is time that she move on with her life and put this all behind her.

In a 1,245-word missive entitled “Goodbye Attention Whore” posted on the liberal DailyKos blog, Sheehan said her campaign to end the war in Iraq had strained her relationship with her children, cost her a marriage and left her nearly penniless.

“This is my resignation letter as the ‘face’ of the American anti-war movement,” Sheehan wrote. “I am going to take whatever I have left and go home. I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost.”

Sheehan founded the Gold Star Families for Peace after her son, Casey Sheehan, a 24-year-old Army specialist, was killed in an April 2004 battle in Baghdad. Sheehan was an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s policies and was often a target of criticism herself for visiting with leftist leaders like Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez.
