Move America Forward?

Eric Hogue has a blog entry about Move America Forward. In it he states, "Cindy Sheehan has no expert position. She has used the death of her own son as a soapbox to stand upon and shout her leftist ideologies at the President and our military." I totally agree with this. Just because Cindy Sheehan's son was in the military and was killed in Iraq DOES NOT give her indesputable insight on world politics.

The entry goes on: "Then, out of nowhere, 'Move America Forward' arrives to carry the water for the Cindy Sheehan story while she is licking her self inflicted wounds in Los Angles with Mommy.

MAF creates the caravan and the media 'camera candy', the story finds new life and Cindy Sheehan returns to her tents in Crawford with newly found emotions and victim hood.

We allowed her saga to return to life, and now she is planning a million dollar protest and rally in Washington DC for September 24th.


I disagree. I believe that the average person can see through Cindy's false crusade. The more people hear her, the more they will dislike Cindy and her message. The only people that believe that Cindy is a heroine are ones that don't look at the facts anyway, and won't anytime in the future.

But what if Cindy Sheehan went unchallenged and today was remembered as a time when everyone was against the war and Bush? Move America Forward showed that this was not the case, and that many military families did support the war effort. Move America Forward let other countries know that all of the US did not have the same opinion as Cindy Sheehan. I should think that would count for something.

And, wouldn't talking about Cindy Sheehan on a well-read blog also contribute to Cindy's moments of fame?
