Cindy Sheehan uses insurance money from son's death to buy property in Crawford!

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- War protesters will have a new and bigger gathering place when they return in August to President Bush's adopted hometown: a 5-acre lot bought with insurance money Cindy Sheehan received after her son was killed in Iraq.

Gerry Fonseca, a fellow war protester who acted as Sheehan's agent, said he recently bought the vacant lot about a mile from downtown Crawford -- and about 7 miles from Bush's ranch -- for $52,500. About half the land is pasture, and the other half is woods, he said.

"If Cindy Sheehan came to town, I don't think anybody would have sold her any property," Fonseca, of Eagle Rock, Missouri, said Thursday.

More insult to her son's memory. I hope that soldier is watching this crap his Mother pulls from whichever etherial plain he may currently reside.

Well, at least she has some place "legal" to set up her tents and have Al and Jesse and Chavez over for tea and crumpets  sarcastic

That is funny, but Chavez is busy in Russia buying planes, and copters. He doesn't have time right now for a maggot like her. Smile

I agree. I don't think her son would've appreciated what she's doing.
He is a fallen Hero not a victim like she portrays him.

Well, I hope she enjoys Texas after Bush leaves office in two years. Maybe then she can put a headstone on her son's grave. You know, that son she voluntarily gave up custody of in a divorce when he was a small child. The one she hardly spent a day with before he was killed. Yeah, that same one that made her a celebrity by getting killed.

What life is she going to have when Bush leaves office? Her celeb friends are not likely to hang around with her once the TV cameras leave.

Are you saying that she discovered her great love for this child only after he died in a war she already did not like and was working against?

Are you implying she's using his death as a launching pad for her own aggrandizement? That her marriage was a sham that even her husband refused to acknowledge when she went ballistic and was used by the left?

But she's a grieving mother.........c'mon....let her say what she wants without criticism no matter what she says or whom she supports.

She's famous now...she was with Hugo while he was negotiating for more Cubans to come over and to buy Russian hardware he doesn't need....she was line dancing with Cynthia McKinney the other night during the primary election....she's a real player now.

I wonder what her own family thinks of her.

Just a little more than 2 years left. The phone calls and diiners with Robbins, Sarandon, assorted Hollyweird glitterati, and leftist world leaders will stop the second Dubya turns over the office to the next President in January 2009.

Very true but as the Devil's Advocate I must point out the Right is just as guilty as the Left of pulling stunts like this one. At the end of the day she is still a moonbat being used by the Dubya haters and peaceniks. Those celebrity phone calls will soon dry up for her.

This one, had you read it, would reveal it was not about Tom DeLay per se, but the conclusion drawn about possible effects midterms would have on the November '06 elections. Anyone could have been used in his place as the example.

Yup, and the hag will continue to profit off her son's death when she sells it . . . disgraceful.

Slammer is right however . . .

She will be but a memory when PotUs leaves office . . . and a very short one at that. She won't make the history books - but might make the encylopedia under "full blown nut job" and the 2009/2010 Websters will have her photo next to the definition of either a) crackpot, b) attention whore or c) loser . . . possibly all of the above - right next to Al Sharpton's and Jesse Jacksons.

That poster should check his email address (the one which he has provided in his profile) to see why the post was removed. If a notice isn't there, they should check it didn't get diverted to their junk email folder, and if they are still in the dark, they are welcome to contact the moderators, who can give them a copy of the notice.

Anyway, lets return to the subject at hand...

Slammer...I was being ironic...check your IMs.

Sheehan is an attention whore and hypocrite of the first magnitude who is shamelessly using her son's death to gain the notoriety she craves.

I don't know her personally, but from what I've seen, and the people she supports I can comfortably state that her politics are not new to her, nor is her willingness to attack her own country for the actions of terrorists.
