Media Photographs Lonely Woman


Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan waits for people to show up at her book signing near President Bush's ranch on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005 in Crawford, Texas. And waits. And waits.


What if you held a book signing and no one came?

Don't you people know who she is? She has ABSOLUTE MORAL AUTHORITY sez Maureen Dowd (who can't find a man to put up with her) and the NYT! Well, that is if liberals believed in any absolute morals, which they don't.

Anyway, she is HOLY to her liberal followers, except that they don't believe in holiness, or notions of good and evil.

Ok, she is a hero then. Oh wait, liberals don't believe in individual heroism, but worship the collective instead! We are all just mindless cogs in the omnipresent State machine!

Desperation has nothing to do with it.
She has to be the biggest pain in the a$$ ever launched. Just imagine the kind of guy that would be attracted to her.
Makes me want to take a shower.

Wow, Cass, that was harsh. You don't see me saying that you would be hooking up with Kevin Federline, do you?

I don't even know what Kevin Federline looks like afe.

Anyway, I was just pulling your tail a bit because I was tired and wanted something to laugh about :)

'Nite.

I believe she abandoned that guy and he finally divorced her after a few months of economy-sized, extra-strength humiliation.

Caption contest?

Cindy Sheehan is shocked that her personals ad didn't attract any suitors.

'Published lonely, divorced, bitter and self righteous opportunist desperately seeks publicity and love'

I can't believe I almost fell for lies spread by you hateful right wingers through your right wing news services like AP & Reuters!!!!! ;-)

http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001572310

‘…in a statement today, Sheehan accused “right-wing” sites of “spreading a false story that nobody bought my book at Camp Casey on Saturday. That is not true, I sold all 100 copies and got writer's cramp signing them. Photos were taken of me before the people got in line to have me sign the book. We made $2000 for the peace house.”

Her publisher, Arnie Kotler at Koa Books, meanwhile released a letter to her supporters, charging that “AP and Reuters posted photos - I can't imagine why - of Cindy sitting at the book table between signings, rather than while someone was at the table. And now the smear websites are circulating an article, with these photos, that Cindy gave a signing and nobody came. It's simply not true…. the benefit books signing in Crawford, Texas on November 26, 2005 was well attended and a huge success.”

Asked for a response, an AP spokesman commented this afternoon:

"Photographer Evan Vucci, queried about the incident today said that he was present at the book signing from about 10 a.m. to about 11 a.m. During that time, he said, people were coming in to have their books signed in small groups of a few at a time.

"At the time the photos were taken 'maybe 5 people had come in,' Vucci says, and Sheehan was waiting for more to stop by, which they did individually as well as in very small groups. Therefore the wording of the caption is accurate in that Sheehan was waiting for people to show up at her signing."’

Who are all those chairs for in the photo? The photographers?

 
At 10:03 AM, Blogger Masked Menace© said...

A whole 100 people huh? The whole day?

Wow, I saw more in line for an obscure Christian music singer at a local mall.

KJ, the chairs are there for those who are there in spirit.

Sheesh. You conservatives are not in touch with your feelings, are you? No, with you people it is always the logic.
Always thinking. Never stopping and smelling the roses.

A few in small groups? heh. Sounds like double speak to me.

And since when have you been upgraded to a smear sight and part of the vast right wing conspiracy?

And that would be 'site,' not sight.

Getting ready to have a very bad rest of the day...

Well that's just another one of the depredations (my wyrd for this week) of the BoooSheep and his illegal and immoral war for oil.

THERE USED TO BE FLOWERS EVERYWHERE IN IRAQ! NOW LOOK AT THE PLACE -- IT'S JUST A PILE OF FRICKING SAND FER CHRISSAKES!!!

Another legacy of John ASScroft's post-Patriot Amerikkka - we have made a desert and called it Peace.

I am outraged.

Sheehan has the Moral Authority! You can't deny it, no matter how many photos you take between the tens of Cindy-groupie hangers-on brown-nosin' MoveOn book-buyers that camped out with Mother Sheehan and trudged in out of the warm sunshine to get their precious free volume of Gold Star Lies! The truth will be revealed by Mother Sheehan! It will end the reign of the Chimperor!

Umm, I think my Prozac just wore off. Gosh, I feel better. What was I saying? Yup, her fifteen minutes are over.

depradations: As a hairy knuckled mouth breather from a Red State in the South I had to look it up, one syllable at a time.

*sob*

Well I hadn't marginalized anyone yet so I figured I'd better get a jump start on the day.
