Yeah. Maybe her buddies at Code Pink had something to do with it, huh?
When I started reading about Ms. Sheehan in the news, beginning fairly
recently, I thought she was a bereaved mother who'd gone crazy with grief.
Now I'm not so sure.

But anyway, she has the right to scream, yell, camp out and make demands.
