Oh, that pro-war march? The one the organizers said they were planning for 20,000?
Four hundred showed up. Ain't that a gas? So let's revisit our equation:
400 > 100,000 (t)rue (f)alse
"Moral obscurity" has a nice ring to it.
One sign on the mall read "Cindy Sheehan doesn't speak for me" and another "Arrest the traitors"; it listed Sheehan's name first among several people who have spoken against the war.
Just when you thought our country can't possibly have come to the point where speaking and disagreeing (in the same breath) is synonimous with being a traitor...
Melody Vigna, 44, of Linden, California, said she wants nothing to do with Sheehan and others at nearby Camp Casey, an anti-war site set up to honor her son, Casey, who was killed in Iraq. "Our troops are over there fighting for our rights, and if she was in one of those countries she would not be able to do that," Vigna said.
There's a novel idea.
Quick, somebody tell me what right I was able to keep thanks to the invasion of Iraq!
Right. Cheap access to oil and safe malls.
Grist, here's a mill. Mill, here's grist.
