Sheehan's Follies: We've Had Enough

Seems like not everyone is in love with Cindy Sheehan and her views, and they're starting to let her and her followers know about it.

A TV station in Utah has refused to air her ad denouncing the war, saying it would not sit well with their demographic. Of course, some can't understand...after all, what about the First Amendment? Sorry, but the First Amendment doesn't guarantee that a TV station will play your ad if they think its content will offend their viewers. It's a business whose revenue depends upon how many people are tuning in. If viewers don't tune in, other advertisers spend their dollars elsewhere. And the TV station in question goes down the toilet, throwing all of those good people who work there on the steps of the unemployment office. That's not good for the economy. Would Cindy Sheehan's group Gold Star Families for Peace want to contribute toward an economic downturn in Utah?

These people are "asking for a meeting" with President Bush. Heck, I'd like to meet with him too. There are a lot of people who would like to chance to meet with the president, either to support him or chide him. But he doesn't have the time to meet with every kook out there who believes they've earned the right to disrupt his busy schedule with their nonsense. If he met with everyone who wanted to see him, he would never have the time to get anything done.

The father of a fallen soldier doesn't like having his son's name as a part of Sheehan's protest, and he's had to pull the cross bearing his son's name out several times (the cross being put there along with others as part of the anti-war protest). Gary Quall has begun a counter protest, saying the anti-war people are "disrespectful" to soldiers. Disrespectful is only the top layer of the dungheap of dissent. Bless Gary Quall and all who support his efforts.

Please read this excellent article by Mark Steyn (if you haven't already). Here's one of the most powerful paragraphs:

They're not children in Iraq; they're grown-ups who made their own decision to join the military. That seems to be difficult for the left to grasp. Ever since America's all-adult, all-volunteer army went into Iraq, the anti-war crowd have made a sustained effort to characterize them as "children." If a 13-year-old wants to have an abortion, that's her decision and her parents shouldn't get a look-in. If a 21-year-old wants to drop to the broadloom in Bill Clinton's Oval Office, she's a grown woman and free to do what she wants. But, if a 22- or 25- or 37-year-old is serving his country overseas, he's a wee "child" who isn't really old enough to know what he's doing.

Yowch! As always, Steyn hits the nail on the head.

I don't usually want summer to end, but I'm ready for the Summer of Cindy (as Michelle Malkin terms it) to go away. Sooner rather than later, please.
