Mama Moonbat, 30 Supporters Descend on Capitol
The Washington Post continues hyping Cindy Sheehan with another ridiculous article titled: Sheehan, Supporters Descend on The Capital [sic].
Gotta love it. “Descend on the Capitol.” All 30 of them.
Three weeks after leaving their dusty outpost in Crawford, Tex., and touring the country, several dozen families brought their antiwar message to the U.S. Capitol and the White House. They plan to join thousands of protesters Saturday at a march and rally on the Mall. “Not one more!” they chanted as they walked up the West Lawn of the Capitol, referring to the number of U.S. soldiers dying in Iraq.
The “Bring Them Home Now” bus tour was born at Camp Casey, the makeshift encampment that blossomed around Cindy Sheehan when she decided to plant herself outside President Bush’s ranch and demand that he talk with her about why her son, Army Spec. Casey Sheehan, 24, was killed. He died April 4, 2004, in Baghdad.
One of the buses stopped in Baltimore yesterday morning so the families could address a crowd of supporters gathered at Timothy Dean’s Bistro on Eastern Avenue. People wiped away tears as they listened to soldiers’ parents rail against the war that had claimed their children’s lives — or threatened to do so.
When Sheehan stepped to the microphone, the crowd pushed away from the table and stood, applauding the woman who camped in the Texas heat for 25 days.
“When I fell on the floor screaming on April 4, screaming for my son, screaming for my loss, it was too much for a mother to bear. I had skin in the game,” Sheehan said.
“We love our country,” she continued. “If we didn’t love our country, we could pool our resources and buy an island and get away from our country.”
When the group arrived on Capitol Hill in the early afternoon, dozens of reporters encircled Sheehan.
