Cindy Sheehan Throws In The Towel

In disappointment, in disgust, in dejection, Cindy Sheehan announced today that she’s packing up and going home.

After her son Casey was killed in the war in Iraq, Cindy set up camp in Crawford, Texas down the road from the Bush “ranch” to protest the war. She demanded to see and talk to the President regarding the war, but was unsurprisingly rebuffed and ignored by He Who Would Be Caesar.

She stood her ground and fought the good fight, founded an organization called Gold Star Families for Peace, and I dare say played no small role in making it socially acceptable for patriots to speak out loudly and publicly against the illegal and insane debacle which is our involvement in Iraq.

But in a Web diary posted to the liberal online community Daily Kos on Monday, Sheehan said she was exhausted by the personal, financial and emotional toll of the past two years.

She wrote that she is disillusioned by the failure of Democratic politicians to bring the unpopular war to an end and tired of a peace movement she said “often puts personal egos above peace and human life.”

As The Boy mentioned in our local ENCToday forum,

…it is rather distressing to realize that politicians (of whatever stripe) are not beholden to the voters to keep the promises they made to get themselves elected. Sort of defeats the purpose of having a Representative Republic.

We feel your pain, Cindy. It’s totally understandable that you feel so frustrated, disappointed, and disillusioned. Democrats were overwhelmingly elected in November to end the war, and when the chips were down they folded like Tyson in the Buster Douglas fight.

It’s disgusting.

We’ll miss you, Cindy.  You’ve left some rather large shoes to fill.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”  –Margaret Mead
