Cindy Sheehan is at it again.

BAH of A CERTAIN SLANT OF LIGHT has the details. He provides an admirable collection of links to bloggers posting on the latest MSM feeding-frenzy. Hat tip to Mark Shea for the photo.

Among the stories are Ms. Sheehans arrest. CNN provides the required hagiography:
Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who became a leader of the anti-war movement following her son's death in Iraq, was arrested Monday along with dozens of others protesting outside the White House.

Sheehan, carrying a photo of her son in his Army uniform, was among hundreds of protesters who marched around the White House and then down the two-block pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. When they reached the front of the White House, dozens sat down -- knowing they would be arrested -- and began singing and chanting "Stop the war now!"

Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests. One man climbed over the White House fence and was quickly subdued by Secret Service agents.

Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She smiled as she was carried to the curb, then stood up and walked to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."
Yawn. Didn't this woman have her fifteen minutes of fame? Oh, that's right. Katrina blew in and literally stole her thunder. Suddenly the MSM had real news to report. That damn Ka-ching! factor! Always getting in the way of promoting the Agenda!

Her Reasonable enablers have once again subjected her to needless abuse, in which she seems all too willing to assist them. Her antics simply cause the fair-minded to tune her out. If she's looking to reverse the US' position on the war in order to somehow redeem her son's death, then she's ironically failing to honor him. Her strategy will only succeed in continuing to make her an object of derision.

Somebody talk her down from the bridge before it's too late! Ooops. Too late!
