Tangled thing, this “Feds’ going after Cindy Sheehan for nonpayment of taxes” story.
- On the one hand, theoretically I can see the appeal of being understanding of the tax situation of mothers who have lost their kids to combat.
- On the other hand, Cindy Sheehan has been by now – and at least-half voluntarily – broken and remolded into the shape of a “professional mother who has lost her kid to combat;” it’s her living, frankly.
- On the gripping hand, the people in the Democratic party who are responsible for winding up this deluded woman, aiming her at the Republicans, then completely cutting Sheehan loose once her usefulness had passed? They should be beaten. With sticks. Because people are not toys for other people’s amusement.
But that’s just my immediate take on this.
