MSNBC is carrying an Associated Press story that Cindy Sheehan has “resigned” as an anti-war protest leader. The first three paragraphs read thusly:
“FORT WORTH, Texas – Cindy Sheehan, the soldier’s mother who galvanized an anti-war movement with her month-long protest outside President Bush’s ranch, says she’s done being the public face of the movement.
“‘I’ve been wondering why I’m killing myself and wondering why the Democrats caved in to George Bush,’ Sheehan told The Associated Press by phone Tuesday while driving from her property in Crawford to the airport, where she planned to return to her native California.
“I”m going home for awhile to try and be normal.'”
Well good luck on that one, Cindy. Maybe you should take some time off in Venezuela to see your pal Hugo Chavez before he closes down the rest of the opposition press.
