HILLARY CLINTON TO MEET WITH CINDY SHEEHAN
This from FrontPage Magazine today:
PERHAPS NOTHING SIGNIFIES THE DEATH GRIP IN WHICH THE FAR-LEFT NOW HOLDS THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAN THIS ANNOUNCEMENT: HILLARY CLINTON has agreed to meet with antiwar extremist Cindy Sheehan. The leftist rag the Village Voice has reported that this weekend, between rallies at the White House sponsored by United for Peace and Justice and International ANSWER, Sheehan will make a side trip to share her concerns and keen foreign policy insights with the likely 2008 Democratic presidential candidate.
To be accurate, Hillary is not the only one from Congress that is going to meet with Sheehan:
In her open letter to Congress, she threatens politicians of both parties, “Meet with us, answer us, and show us that there need not be a Camp Casey in your district.”
No fewer than 17 Congressmen have heeded the call and scheduled face time with “Mother Sheehan,” including such Democratic Party statesmen as:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA;
Sen. Robert Byrd, D-Kleagle;
Sen. Russ Feingold, D-WI, another likely 2008 Democratic presidential hopeful;
Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA;
Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-GA;
Rep. Barbara Lee, D-CA;
Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee, D-TX;
Rep. Lynn Woolsey, D-CA;
Rep. Fortney “I said you are a little fruitcake” Stark, D-CA;
Rep. Shelley Berkeley, D-NV;
Rep. John Barrow, D-GA;
Rep. Lloyd Doggett, D-TX;
Rep. Frank Pallone, D-NJ; and
Rep. Neil Abercrombie, D-HI
Inexplicably, Sen. Arlen Specter has scheduled a meeting with the professional griever. Two other Republicans also have Cindy Sheehan penciled in this weekend: Rep. Ron Paul, R-TX, a libertarian and outspoken critic of this war; and Congressman Jeb Bradley, R-NH, who supported the war.
NewsMax is reporting that John McCain is on the list as well....
Methinks that this particular grabbing opportunity for the spotlight will come back to bite these Congressmen...Sheehan and her extreme left-wing, anti-America politics is something these Congressmen - both Democrat and Republican alike - should think twice about...and avoid at all costs...
