Come Back Cindy

Via Tim Blair, Cindy Sheehan has abandoned her principles in favor of political expediency. And the left is cheesed:

Before the campaign season began to heat up Sheehan had lambasted Democratic Senators Hillary Clinton and Dianne Feinstein, among others, for their backward defense of the war effort. She even went as far as to describe Hillary’s position on Israel and Iraq as being equal to that of Rush Limbaugh. Yet, when it has mattered most, i.e. now, she has been virtually silent.

Silent. While war mongering Democrats the land over trample the rights of brown people in the war torn regions of New Orleans and Venezuela.

Her silence almost surely accounts for this:

With two weeks to go, anything can happen, but it is beginning to look possible that the Democratic surge in the midterm elections may fall short of control in either House.

Cindy. Your people need you. Now get out there and put your arm around Hugo Chavez...or something. The highly principled anti-war crowd is reduced to rounding up actual war-mongerers to further the cause in your absence. How's that going?

...the group has collected 118 names and is trying to verify that they are legitimate service members.

Just one Cindy Sheehan short of a groundswell.
