Sneer is the Beginning of Wisdom

Cindy Sheehan has dropped out of the anti-war movement:

I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called "Face" of the American anti-war movement. Especially since I renounced any tie I have remaining with the Democratic Party, I have been further trashed on such "liberal blogs" as the Democratic Underground. Being called an "attention whore" and being told "good riddance" are some of the more milder rebukes.

I said long ago that she was just cannon fodder for the Left anti-war movement.

I hope the scorn that the Left heaped upon her will help her come to terms with her son's death and lead her to accept that he fought and died for a noble cause.
