Cindy Sheehan: Lost in Translation

Reading between the lines:

"I look back on it, and I am very, very, very grateful he did not meet with me, because we have sparked and galvanized the peace movement," Sheehan told The Associated Press. "If he'd met with me, then I would have gone home, and it would have ended there."

Translation: If he had met with me I wouldn't have become an "icon", I wouldn't have gotten to meet Martin Sheen and Rev. Al Sharpton, and I wouldn't be able to extend my 15 minutes of fame further by taking a "peace tour" bus trip to Washington D.C.

"When I first started here, I was sitting in the ditch thinking, `What the heck did I do? Texas in August, the chiggers, fire ants, rattlesnakes, uncomfortable accommodations' - but I'm going to be sad leaving here," Sheehan said. "I hope people will say that the Camp Casey movement sparked a peace movement that ended the war in Iraq."

Translation: Even though I had to make do with a free haircut, caterers and a concert by leftover hippie Joan Baez here at Camp Casey, my name is surely going to make it into the history books. I haven't just made lemonade out of my son's death, I've made lemon chiffon pie--and I'm enjoying every last bite.
