Support Cindy. Support What is Good.

MoveOn does a million and one positive, admirable campaigns A DAY. This one has a special place in my heart. The MoveOn email:

On April 4th last year, 24-year-old Army Specialist Casey Sheehan died in Iraq. This week, while President Bush vacations in Texas, Casey's mother, Cindy Sheehan, sits vigil outside the president's ranch. Cindy says that she won't leave until President Bush meets with her to discuss the war—even if it means spending all of August there.

Cindy Sheehan was not an anti-war activist, but the loss of her son and the mounting evidence of deception by the Bush administration pushed her to speak out. While Cindy camps roadside in Texas, dozens of other military moms are flying to Texas to join her. Her story is starting to grab national attention, but Cindy needs our support. We're asking moms (and dads, siblings, spouses and kids) from all across America to help send a message by signing our letter of support to Cindy. Will you sign?

Support Cindy.

UPDATE. 11 August 2005: More accounts re. Cindy S.

Susie,

Can you ask Jesus to show up at Bush's Crawford compound and help out Cindy?

Cindy + Jesus = Results

(capital R results - yeah baby)

Request in to Jesus. So far, he's not answered, but I don't see why this week shouldn't be the week...

uuuuhmmm, I don't know what you think you'll get out of dear Jesus, but, like, he's on George's side, ya know. It's quite obvious that anyone who wants to "discuss the war" hates freedom. G-dubs and J.C. aren't bravely defending this most blessed of countries so hippies like Cindy Whatserface can go dissenting at doorsteps. I volunteer to personally man the water-cannon that will hose Cindy and her faction of turncoat anti-americans back to Frenchtown where they belong.

well, if you blast em to "frenchtown," they are sure to run into bush who is enjoying a 5 week, clearly francophile vacation.

Jesus ≠ GWB. Jesus and GWB are total opposites. I think Andy needs some more Jesus in his life.
