Revisited: Just Because You Can, Doesn't Mean You Should

That was my argument here when the whole Cindy Sheehan publicity machine cranked up. Now Rightwingsparkle says as much to the opposition: is an organization that is countering Cindy Sheehan's protest movement. I saw an ad on TV today asking for people to join them in a caravan to Crawford Texas this weekend. The ad included a mother who had also lost a son in Iraq.

. . .

This will just be painful and not necessary. We all know that there are two sides to this issue. We all know what those sides believe. It is really necessary to make a spectacle out of grief????

Her answer to that is my answer to that. The Sparkly One has it exactly right here.

This is BEYOND grief, Ilyka. This is going into the realm of mental instability. Sheehan clearly (See any and all of her open letters, writings, speeches, what have you.) is taking her son's death in the worst possible way, and the Lefties are PUSHING her further and further off the edge. I don't think she was made of tough enough emotional stuff to handle the loss that she's going through. The worst part is that Moore and his Lefty cadre are feeding her the Leftist talking points and encouraging her rather than helping her cope.

This is villainy. This is rank, pure, evil to use this woman like that. There is simply no other way to put it. Because of what they are doing, Sheehan will likely barely have a psyche left to put together when the media frenzy clears.

And the other side really doesn't need to media whore themselves, too. They could score mucho points by simply keeping their protest to a tasteful level of counter-protesting sans the emotional appeals and let the Sheehanites show their insanity ("We don't want to argue with people who don't understand our cause!").

Then again, it would be better for everyone involved if the media circus was to end.
