    While I am deeply sorry for the loss she suffered, and all who lost loved ones in that essentially pointless and unnecessary conflict, sympathy does not make Cindy Sheehan's opinions rational.

    I attended an Occupy rally in Sacramento, and I learned after I got there that Sheehan was going to be speaking. I declined to listen to her and instead spent the time with sign-holders on the busy street corner.

    Punchline: The local Fox News affiliate covered the rally. It is the only time (to my knowledge) I have ever appeared in news footage, and the footage of me is cut in to make me look like I'm nodding along to that loon Cindy Sheehan. (I was actually talking to somebody else, hours before Sheehan even spoke!) Yes, that's right, I've appeared on Fox News for 1.5 seconds and in that time they managed to lie about me.

      Sheehan just isn't ready for prime time as a political candidate. Probably, she wouldn't know what to do with prime-time funding and resources, if the had them available. So of course, Fox Noise vultures have to move in and make her look completely crazy.
