A Look Into the Deranged Left

I feel for Cindy Sheehan, I do, but the woman is almost clinically deranged. She needs some serious, serious therapy, and globetrotting the world and reopening her wound over and over while under the glare of an extended fifteen minutes of fame is not going to help. It merely reaffirms her already deeply held paranoias and feelings of persecution, while bringing her personal torment and loss over the death of her son out into the open as a political playing piece.

Anyway, enough of me. Check out Cindy Sheehan's interview with Irish far-left writer Ronan Sheehan, which appeared recently in the far-left "journal" CounterPunch. I found Cindy's second to last statement particularly revealing:
And about Bill Clinton . . . . You know, I really think he should have been impeached, but not for a blow job. His policies are responsible for killing more Iraqis that George Bush. I don't understand why to rise to the level of being president of my country one has to be a monster. I used to say that George Bush was defiling the Oval Office, but it's been held by a long line of monsters. We don't have to support our administrations to love our country. True patriots of my country dissent when our country's doing something so wrong.
Just so we're clear here-- Cindy Sheehan, one of the left's most outspoken anti-war protesters, is of the opinion that most, if not all, of our presidents have been monsters. And my family wonders why I've wandered off the liberal reservation.


I don't feel for Cindy Sheehan because I think that she is just an opportunistic, selfish twit who is using her son's death to feed her lust for attention.

I do, however, have the utmost respect for Casey Sheehan and his actions.
I do feel for Cindy because I can't imagine what it must be like to lose a son. I hope I never have to find out. And I feel for her because I think the loss of her son has, in large measure, completely unhinged her perspective on reality. She's so filled with hate and loss and so misguided by those who claim to "care for" and "respect" her that she's just gone off the deep end.

It's very, very sad, because in her hurt and loss she can't even take any solace in the fact that her son DID die for something noble and DID want to be part of something significant and successful. All she can do is keep pick, pick, picking at her emotional wounds, egged on by her "supporters" and a variety of media outlets.
I don't feel for people who embrace our enemies.
