The schools of fish move this way and then they turn that way. The current flows and ebbs. Cindy Sheehan is on her way up to Hyannis Port in an attempt to ambush the vacationing president, but you won’t hear of it. Cindy Sheehan, attention whore, is an anachronism because there is no anti-war movement now that the Messiah has come. Her recent anti-war appearance in Dallas drew a huge crowd of 50 people. She’s now a plague, a virus, a wasted, hollow shell, no more a useful icon for the hysterical and hand-wringing left.
Nothing has changed except that things are worse, much worse. Obama has his own plans for ending the war—he intends to lose it. He intends to waste whatever gains have been made in Iraq and is right now thinking of a great sentient self-pitying way to abandon and lose Afghanistan.
Foremost, he has given the stamp of approval for mustachioed Eric Holder to put the CIA operatives on a rack and stretch them for partisan political reasons. That’s what it’s come to. A lot of noise hiding a great silence and lots of rats scurrying in the woodwork.
