  •  Fabulous Interview, partial transcript here: (4.00)
    Wolf Blitzer asks Cindy what it was like when she met with Chimp in Chief before. She and fifteen other families met with the President last year in Washington. But even though the President met with each family individually, it sounds like he was remarkably unprepared:

    Cindy Sheehan: And we wanted him to look at the pictures of Casey. He wouldn't even look at the pictures of Casey. He didn't even know Casey's name. He [Bush] came in the room, and the very first thing he said is, "So...who are we honoring here?"

    He didn't even know Casey's name. He didn't want to hear it. He didn't want to hear anything about Casey. He wouldn't even call him, um, "him" or "he." He called him "your loved one." And every time we tried to talk about Casey and how much we missed him, he changed the subject.

    And he acted like it was a party.

    Wolf Blitzer: Like a party?? I mean...uh..

    Cindy Sheehan: Yeah. He came in very jovial and like we should be, you know, happy, that he...that our son died for his misguided policies.

    •  Did you get the feeling that Wolf (4.00)
      just wasn't ready for this one?

      He seemed almost taken aback when she made that "seemed like a party" statement.....

      Was he taken aback because he didnt' want to hear it?  (it couldnt have been news to him.....he IS a reporter afterall and this was an old news story to us who follow news...wait....Wolf follows news too, right?)

      Was he taken aback because he didnt KNOW about her meeting with the president?   Wouldnt be surprising since the hacks blow us off anytime a tip is given that might not spread the love to their "sources" aka the bush cabinet and their employees.   What a farce.

      Cindy.....you are the hero of heroes.    My tears go out to you and I hope I can get a donation together to forward to the right people....let us know where that might be....   I'm poor but you'll get something without a doubt....just lead me to the direct connection.......something directly regarding this standoff.

      YOU are a true American Hero.....

      DO....NOT....GIVE....UP!!

      YOU ARE OUR VOICE AND YOU MAKE ME PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN AGAIN!!

      If Casey is watching......I'm sure he couldnt be any prouder.  You are an example of examples to say the least.

      Human rights will soon go 'way. I am now your Shah today. Now I command all of you. Now you're going to pray in school. I'll make sure they're Christian too.

        there is so much more to the interview, that is just one juicy segment.

        I really like the part when he asks why she wants to see the president again, since she's seen him before. I don't have time to transcribe, but Cindy, your answer was specific and tied it into a recent statement by the president.
