OKAY, BYE
Cindy Sheehan, the soldier's mother who galvanized an anti-war movement with her monthlong protest outside President Bush's ranch, said Tuesday she's done being the public face of the movement...

In what she described as a "resignation letter," Sheehan wrote in her online diary on the Daily Kos blog: "Good-bye America... you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can't make you be that country unless you want it.

"It's up to you now..."

When Sheehan first took on Bush, she was a darling of the liberal left. "However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the 'left' started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used," she wrote in the diary.

She said she sacrificed a 29-year marriage and endured threats to put all her energy into stopping the war. What she found, she wrote, was a movement "that often puts personal egos above peace and human life."

She said the most devastating conclusion she had reached "was that Casey did indeed die for nothing ... killed by his own country which is beholden to and run by a war machine that even controls what we think."

That's right, folks: The war machine controls what you think. Look, we all liked The X-Files, but...

On one hand, the woman lost her son. On the other hand, at some point before or after that, she clearly lost her mind. She's been exploited by a bunch of people who found her useful to their agenda, and when she ceased being useful, they turned on her. She's said way too much whacked-out crap for me to feel too bad for her, and there's a blatant and deeply unappealing narcissism behind her ramblings, but we should wish her well. Let's hope she uses some of the extra free time she has now to get help for her obvious emotional problems.

P.S. Wakka wakka! Come to the Daily Gut for the big laffs!
