'Bye, Cindy!

Little Green Footballs reports that Cindy Sheehan is essentially abandoning the anti-war movement - excerpts below from her letter of "resignation"; it is a case study of all the anger, divisiveness, and loathing that fills the movement and its members. She begins, as usual, by defiling the memory of her deceased son:

The most devastating conclusion that I reached this morning, however, was that Casey did indeed die for nothing....Casey died for a country which cares more about who will be the next American Idol than how many people will be killed in the next few months.....

What worthless human beings we are, failing to focus all of our energies on Ms. Sheehan's crusade! Now during WWII, nobody left their homes at all; they stayed inside and fretted and worried and sang anti-war ditties....

I have also tried to work within a peace movement that often puts personal egos above peace and human life. T his group won’t work with that group; he won’t attend an event if she is going to be there; and why does Cindy Sheehan get all the attention anyway?

For once, Cindy, I believe you - for your compatriots, it's not about the war, its about drawing attention to one's allegdly seflless actions. Whatever happened to the virtue of anonymous charity? Or does the self-described "reality-based" liberals feel that if a tree falls in the forest, and nobody hears it, then it really hasn't fallen at all?

I am going to take whatever I have left and go home.

Quitting because you've lost the argument? You have a lot in common with Rosie O'Donnell....

Camp Casey has served its purpose. It’s for sale. Anyone want to buy five beautiful acres in Crawford , Texas ? I will consider any reasonable offer.

More on the underhanded way she bought this Crawford property by deciet and lies here.

This is my resignation letter as the “face” of the American anti-war movement.

Send it to the media, Cindy - they are the ones who made you the "face", and they are responsible for the envy of your fellow leftists.

The media is guilty, Cindy, but only for making a morally corrupt and sick woman like yourself the leader of a powerful anti-war movement they hoped for, but never actually existed. They saw you as a tool to bring down George W. Bush, and when you failed (which was inevitable), they turned their eyes to Scooter Libby. You were used, and you reveled in it. Now that your fame has passed, and has relegated you to a small footnote in even the most well-documented histories, what do you have left?
Apparently, an endless well of anger and resentment, flavored with bitterness:

Good-bye America ...you are not the country that I love...

So leave. Try Venezuela, where you are seen in the embrace of a socialist thug. If that's what you love, then it is no wonder your cause failed. Slink away, and if you have any sense of morality left in your decrepid soul, leave the spirit of poor Casey Sheehan behind, so that we may pay him the honor that he is due.

Wow, no Rosie and no Cindy, all in the same week? It seems too good to be true. I'm wary.

Hey - good things come in threes! Can we only hope that the next to leave us is named Nancy - or dare I dream? - Hillary?

As our people are given to saying, "Fun dein mol in Gott's oiren." I believe no translation will be necessary.
