After weeks of the democratic media pushing Cindy as a sad mother in mourning, watching the jovial Cindy being hauled off and booked, made America want to take a shower. Cindy will have a hard time taking back that smile. The democratic media will have a hard time showing that sad face and having anyone feel that same sadness and sympathy. And, America will have a hard time getting over that “slimed on” feeling of being taken once again for a ride by the liberal media.
America was duped. And, they know it.
Further evidence that the gig is up… Even John McCain felt he was duped by Cindy Sheehan yesterday after their meeting. “He said it had been misrepresented to him as including some of his constituents. Only one person in Sheehan’s small delegation had ties to Arizona, and that person no longer lives there.”
