A Bitter, Bitter…

…Cindy Sheehan is calling it quits.

Cindy Sheehan says she is resigning as the “face” of the American anti-war movement.

In a letter posted on a liberal website Monday, Sheehan complained about the smears and hatred directed at her by liberals since she renounced her ties to the Democratic Party.

“Being called an ‘attention whore’ and being told ‘good riddance’ are some of the more milder rebukes [sic],” Sheehan wrote in a long letter posted on the DailyKos blog.

“I have come to some heartbreaking conclusions this Memorial Day Morning,” Sheehan wrote.

She said she has reluctantly concluded that “I was the darling of the so-called left as long as I limited my protests to George Bush and the Republican Party.”

Sheehan also noted that while conservatives “slandered and libeled” her as a “tool of the Democratic Party,” liberals did the same thing — “when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I help the Republican Party.”

In other words, as many of us have said all along, the Democrats used her for as long as they figured she was an asset to their propaganda aparat, then tossed her aside like a broken toy.

Sheehan also described the toll on her personal life:

“I have sacrificed a 29 year marriage and have traveled for extended periods of time away from Casey’s brother and sisters and my health has suffered and my hospital bills from last summer (when I almost died) are in collection because I have used all my energy trying to stop this country from slaughtering innocent human beings. I have been called every despicable name that small minds can think of and have had my life threatened many times.”

She said the “most devastating conclusion” she reached is that her son Casey, who died in Iraq, “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 while Democrats and Republicans play politics with human lives. It is so painful to me to know that I bought into this system for so many years and Casey paid the price for that allegiance. I failed my boy and that hurts the most.”

Yeah, bitter, bitter, bitter. Learned about today’s Democrats the hard way, didn’t she? Also a few things about the fruits of committing treason. And you didn’t fail your boy, Cindy. You defecated on your son’s ultimate sacrifice for his country, and you dishonored this nation every way possible. Now drag your sorry ass home and live with it.

Sheehan also criticized the “peace movement,” which she said “often puts personal egos above peace and human life.

“This group won’t work with that group,” she wrote. “[H]e won’t attend an event if she is going to be there; and why does Cindy Sheehan get all the attention anyway? It is hard to work for peace when the very movement that is named after it has so many divisions.”

Sheehan is a co-founder of the anti-war organization Gold Star Families for Peace, and for two years, she has campaigned for the impeachment and conviction of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. But not any more:

“I am going to take whatever I have left and go home,” Sheehan wrote on Monday.

You do that, Cindy.

“I am going to go home and be a mother to my surviving children and try to regain some of what I have lost. I will try to maintain and nurture some very positive relationships that I have found in the journey that I was forced into when Casey died and try to repair some of the ones that have fallen apart since I began this single-minded crusade to try and change a paradigm that is now, I am afraid, carved in immovable, unbendable and rigidly mendacious marble.”

Sheehan said Camp Casey in Crawford, Tex., is for sale. “I will consider any reasonable offer,” she wrote.

Maybe I can help you, Cindy. Got change for a twenty?

    Wordsmith has a video that he made many months ago titled “Get Along Cindy!” Looks like she finally “Got Along!” Yay. I’m going to link this post to my Fractured Friday post and put up Wordsmith’s video.

    She is so pathetic and you know what the most pathetic thing of all is? It’s that she doesn’t even realize it!

    Gayle –

    I love Wordsmith’s Cindy video, I hope it stays right where it is forever. :-)

    She really has no clue that had she not been promoted by the left to be the “priestess of peace” or whatever, she would have gone from nothing to a brief news item and back to nothing in the blink of an eye, and that the only reason she finally did become “nothing” was that her “friends” (Michael Moore and the MSM et al) felt they had exhausted her political value to them.

    Maybe Hugo Chavez can find some use for her. :-O

    She was old news a long time ago. I guess she just figured that out.

    Shoprat –

    Still… It’s good to see her “officially” gone while seeing that she’s bringing no “glory” along with her.

    I hear there is a Tree and a Ditch for sale in Crawford, Texas :-)

    Marie –

    LOL! That reminds me of the day a couple of Septembers ago, on the Hill. I was in the National Clergy Council offices talking to Bill Greene and some other people, and I made a remark about “the bitch in the ditch”. Everyone knew who I was talking about (she was setting up her Camp Casey in, of all places, the shadow of the Washington Monument) and there was a pronounced general chuckle. :-)

    If I lived in Georgia, Bill would definitely get my vote. :-)

    Bitter is exactly right!! The only thing that would’ve made me happier after her calling it quits is if she’d announced she was moving to Venezuela to be with her beloved Chavez.

    And maybe she should’ve thought about being a better mother to her other children quite some time ago instead of spending her time as an attention whore.

    The sad thing is so many others realize that her son didn’t die for nothing but she doesn’t. I heard that Casey’s father spent Memorial Day doing some kind of run for the troops. At least her ex knows the right way to remember their son.

    LMC –

    Cindy really doesn’t seem to understand why her life is now such a mess; She enjoyed being a traitor, revelled in her imagined power as the leader of her dubious little sub-movement, believing herself to be “taking on” the White House and at the end of the day, she has learned that it was like a day at a theme park.

    Now that it’s over, she returns to the real world and finds that neither side has any use for her.

    I agree that she probably has no inkling that Casey did not die for nothing, and she most likely doesn’t even realize that her own efforts did nothing but disrespect his heroism and his sacrifice.

    Given what she has done and what she has stood for, though, I cannot find it anyplace within to wish her anything but the second half, karma-wise, of “what goes around…”

    She’ll show back up again. Once a media whore always a media whore. She’ll miss the lime light and look for a way back into the press. Good ridance for the time being but she’ll be turning media tricks again before long!

  12. Seth Says:

    Ken –

    I wouldn’t bet against it, though I believe she’d have a more difficult time than before since she’s pissed off the left. :-)

    In the meantime, maybe she’ll head south to help out one of her bosom buddies.
