Cindy Sheehan: "Mr. Bush, Why Did My Son Die?"

Cindy Sheehan's son Casey, 24, was killed in Sadr City, Iraq, on April 4, 2004. Casey was a mechanic who worked on Humvees. Exactly the kind of job Rushbaugh the Pigboy Druggie would dismissively describe as the trailer-trash equivalent of a "staff puke".

Yesterday she and about 50 others left the national Veterans for Peace convention in Dallas and drove to Crawford in a red, white and blue school bus with the words "Impeachment Tour" written on it.

True to form in this neo-fascist state we live in, the protestors were kept five miles or more from the ranch location of the perpetually-vacationing Bush.

Sheehan decided to take her protest directly to Bush after his statements concerning the troops dying for a "noble cause".

She will camp out as close as she can get to the Crawford ranch until the HMFIC* comes out and talks to her.

The WAPO carried a basic story on the protest -- it was okay considering it came from a charter member of the weak, obsequious and lame-assed SCLM.
