Cindy Sheehan Goes Off The Deep End

Cindy Sheehan comes out of the Truther closet:
“I am a 9/11 truther”, Sheehan said. “I do believe it was an inside job.”

She continued, “We just don’t know – I don’t know – how far inside it went. But, you know, I’m sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it.” Her statements were met with a standing ovation from the crowd.

She also claimed that Barack Obama is doing everything he can to “protect the criminals of the Bush regime.”
Seriously? "I'm sure Dick Cheney had something to do with it"? Okay Cindy -- and your proof is...? Right. Nothing.

Check please.

During the Bush (43) administration, Cindy Sheehan became the veritable face of the anti-war movement. She was the one who would camp out at the Bush family's ranch outside of Crawford, Texas. She made lots of headlines for being the proverbial thorn in the then-President's side.

...and I think that she did a great job of bringing, and keeping the war in Iraq in the headlines of an otherwise fickle media. The fact that she lost her son added to the credibility of her voice.

But no more. Like the Birthers, the Truthers are a fringe element who, despite their best efforts, cannot offer a shred of evidence to support their claims cause. Now it is officially time to ignore Cindy Sheehan.
