The Wacko WaPo
Or, How to Influence People the Wrong Way.
Cindy Sheehan and her merry band of mischief-makers have pissed off a neighbor. He fired a shotgun into the air, bringing security forces to his home in a hurry. Maybe it scared away a few of the rabble, and maybe not. What matters is Sheehan’s response:
I’m surprised we haven’t had more of that since we’re in Bush country.
Oh really? Then why doesn’t she leave Bush country and go to some whiny blue-state city, like Los Angeles, or San Francisco, or Detroit? I could even show her a couple liberal neighborhoods in Ohio, where nobody ever uses a gun to commit a crime! Well, that is, if you don’t count the gangs, and the rapes, and the muggings.
She is addicted to the media attention, and it has clouded her judgment. What’s worse is that the Washington Post is enabling her addiction with this uncritical parroting. They have both truly lost touch with reality. She belongs in an asylum, and the WaPo belongs in the dustbin of history.
