GM Interviews Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan famously retired from participating in the anti-war movement on May 28, 2007 announcing her decision on her Daily Kos Diary:

I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called "Face" of the American anti-war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such "liberal blogs" as the Democratic Underground. Being called an "attention whore" and being told "good riddance" are some of the more milder rebukes.
Of course, I doubt that she was given a lot of "smear and hatred" until she became the "so-called 'Face' of the American anti-war movement" but that's another story. A short six weeks after "retirement" Ms. Sheehan announced that she was taking on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) because:
Democrats and Americans feel betrayed by the Democratic leadership. We hired them to bring an end to the war. I'm not too far from San Francisco, so it wouldn't be too big of a move for me. I would give her a run for her money."
Then I read where Ms. Sheehan was arrested today protesting the presence, and presumably testimony of General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker before Congress. It occurred to me that perhaps Ms. Sheehan had thus decided to come out of retirement and perhaps she would consent to an interview. I called around and tracked her down and she graciously agreed acquiesced to an interview I say graciously because I identified myself as a conservative blogger who believes that the war in Iraq and against all of islamofascism is the right thing to do.

The Interview

GM: Ms. Sheehan, thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Cindy Sheehan:

GM: Can you tell us some of the reasons you were on Capital Hill today?

Cindy Sheehan: Wingnut!

GM: Name calling is not necessary Ms. Sheehan. Now, can you answer the question please?

Cindy Sheehan: ?

GM: OK, lets move on so to speak. You've been called an attention whore, and photographs have shown up in the media of you hugging Jessie Jackson, Hugo Chavez and being carried off by the police at various protests, frequently smiling as you are carried off. Do you think your behavior is that of an attention whore?

Cindy Sheehan: ?

GM: Very well, Ms. Sheehan, we'll record that as a "No Comment."

Cindy Sheehan: ?

GM: Clearly Ms. Sheehan, you seem to have some reservations about talking to a conservative, why is that?

Cindy Sheehan: (@&^%*$$)

GM: Wow, I had no idea that you knew such foul words Ms. Sheehan. But back to the interview. What did you think of Hillary and Obama both saying that we may need to keep troops in Iraq for a while longer, that we cannot precipitously pull out?

Cindy Sheehan: *&&^#)(#@*# (&$$#@& )*&*^&%#*(

GM: Ms Sheehan, please, I do have a no cussing rule on my blog - I will have to clean that up a bit. Now, can we ask one final question? What do you think the final vote will be with you running against Speaker Pelosi?

Cindy Sheehan: ?

GM: Well, we tried, so as Edward R. Murrow would say: "Good Night and Good Luck!

Cindy Sheehan: Just who are you calling an attention whore?

ROTFLMAO, Well GM you have a knack for interviews...

I think if I did it it might have been "R" rated but your style works too....

I'd like more details on this one -- from the reports I've read, she was arrested for "yelling" in the halls. Last time I checked, that wasn't a crime. However, it was in Congress, and they tend to make their own rules -- but still, arrested for yelling? If that's all there was to it, that's wrong, even when it's arresting a fool like this one.

BWAHAH when can we expect you to interview the people at We want to know when THEY will MOVE ON!!

Ogre, get real. I was watching the report being delivered to Congress and Sheehan interrupts it by standing up screaming over and over from the balcony. Nothing could continue until she was removed along with her fellow "screamers," who erupted at planned intervals. If she wants to make a point, let her buy television time to do it rather than interrupt very important exchanges regarding our national security. The same thing would happen to her if she did that in a movie theater where you were watching a movie, and this was a little more important.

I know Cindy Sheehan's an easy target and a bit nutty, but her real son actually died in this war. I think you should cut her some slack.

Mavis, I've expressed, in the past, sorrow for her loss. Having said that, she has prostituted herself and her son to a cause for which I doubt he would have supported. Her initial comments regarding her first meeting with President Bush puts the lie to all of her claims afterwards to my way of thinking. The resulting publicity for her demands for a second meeting, only to castigate the president, went to her head and she used her son's death in a disgusting manner. I'm sorry for her loss, but I'm not going to cut her any slack.
