...or on public meltdowns

no, the bastard really feels for cindy sheehan because her son died. that's a damn tragedy. it seems to have cost her her son, and her marriage. but her vitriol for the administration has run it's course and it seems that even folks on the left are starting to distance themselves from her. and the bastard isn't here to comment on it. i have my opinions on her very public meltdown and i don't want to bring that today. what i did want to bring up was something far more lowbrow than that. reuters brought up this little item with reference to cindy and other protestors that will be this week commemorating the 2000th death in iraq. the quote rolls like this:

"I'm going to go to Washington, D.C. and I'm going to give a speech at the White House, and after I do, I'm going to tie myself to the fence and refuse to leave until they agree to bring our troops home," Sheehan said in a telephone interview last week as the milestone approached.

now here's where the bastard goes lowbrow. the night before i came across this little gem the simpsons rerun in which the owners of the isotopes (the springfield team) wants to move the team to new mexico and homer chains himself to the scoreboard and they make a spectacle of his hunger strike. next day, this comes over the wire and now every time i read about cindy sheehan i think of hungry hungry homer. is that wrong? the bastard thinks so. the bastard also doesn't care shiteyes.

I don't think "celebrating" is the right word (and no one uses it in the article you link to). Mourning, greiving, lamenting, commemorating -- anyone who's celebrating this is a moron or worse.

i think itook a little bit of liberty there from a ton of op ed i've read. and i'm really all about the homer really though. maybe commemorate is a better word for this. there you go.
