Pictures, Thousand Words, Etc.

In a development everyone saw coming, Cindy Sheehan has been arrested in front of the White House today. The story, however, isn't half as interesting as the accompanying pictures:

Nothing epitomizes a mother's suffering quite like a diabolical, shit-eating grin.

It almost seems like a bit of childish fun, doesn't it? "Wheee, I'm going to be on TV again! Wheeeee!"

There she is . . . Miss anti-America . . .

Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was handcuffed, then led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."

Yes, that is the point, after all. I suppose the greatest anti-war protest in all human history didn't generate the kind of media attention certain fame whores require.

It's a shame I have no vestiges of pity left for this woman, else this would have exhausted it. That's right, dear, embrace the crazy. After all your friends have left you and you're safely tucked away in the gentle white room, you'll find peace and a movie of the week contract.
