Ahem.

I don't know her well enough to defend her, but please tell us, how do you know her so well that you can excoriate her so viciously?

Bottom line is, you *don't*. Rather, you've leaped to a conclusion based upon some preconcieved notion about her actions, tactics and thought processes.

Here's a thought, Jay. Perhaps she was -- understandably -- devastated by the loss of her son, and given her personal opposition to the war and the President, she went off the deep end and challenged both in a very unconventional way. It's also possible (read: guaranteed) that some liberals compromised her for their own gain, and just as with moveon.org lots and lots of liberals were willing to throw her lots and lots of money because she was doing something to challenge the President and the war.

Unlike you I can't simply conclude that she packed her son off to war with the secret desire that he would die and she could make money from it. I have little doubt that she would much prefer that the war never have happened and that he be "safe at home" where she could mother him.

Nothing personal, but does the word gull·ible mean anything to you?

Are you attempting to apply that moniker to me, to her, or yourself?

As written, this time or last, it's a non-sequitur at best, nonsensical at worst.

The jawbone of an ass.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Then your mouth should be registered as a deadly weapon.

In all honesty, Jay, I think in a philosophical/world sense view I am often nearer to you than I am to most of the other OT folks.

That aside, if you're so willing to be so judgmental about two people you don't know (myself and Ms. Sheehan) then you must be that narrow-minded about everything.

And that said, I can't believe you're so gullible that you'd allow yourself to be manipulated by the anti-Sheehan crown so that you're nothing more than a pawn who would grab hold of the ridiculously monstrous idea that a mom didn't really love her son, didn't care, just wanted to have him die in a war so she could leverage that for her personal profit. If you truly believe that -- and can't even imagine any other rationale for her reaction -- then you're as closed-minded a person as there is.

And if you're really going to start quoting Bible verses, you'd better go take that judgmental, condemning log out of your own eye so you can see clearly in your own mirror. You're not exemplifying anything that Book teaches, other than the wrath of God, and you're not Him.
