Grief pimp and raging lunatic Cindy Sheehan now has a criminal record. Sheehan and her crew were each ordered to pay $75 in fines and court costs, but Sheehan's lawyer said he plans to appeal the verdict.
"We weren't demonstrating," Sheehan told reporters after the trial. All the defendants contended they were trying to deliver petitions to the White House calling for an end to the war in Iraq on Sept. 26, but found no one willing to accept them.
"Our petitions were rejected like every request I have made of the president has been rejected," Sheehan said.
Sheehan, 48, of Berkeley, Calif., has tried repeatedly to meet with
President since her 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in Iraq last year. She spent several weeks near the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch this summer, and plans to return there Thanksgiving week.
"I absolutely believe he has an obligation to meet with me," Sheehan said.
I don't know if it's old age or what, but Cindy Sheehan seems to keep forgetting that President Bush has already met with her. And that fair and balanced media we all read and love conveniently seems to be doing the same thing. Than too, by saying that what she was doing wasn't "protesting", Sheehan seems to be backtracking from the comments she made to the media a week before she went down to D.C.:
"I'm going to go to Washington, D.C. and I'm going to give a speech at the White House, and after I do, I'm going to tie myself to the fence and refuse to leave until they agree to bring our troops home. And I'll probably get arrested, and when I get out, I'll go back and do the same thing."
Sounds like a protest to me.
Another example of liberals and their problems with selective memory.
