I really apologize for this tiny essay (probably the shortest I’ve ever written), but I’m just posting it to solicit questions for Cindy Sheehan. I’m interviewing her tonight and if you have something that you want asked of her, just let me know!
To give this diary some beef (or tofu, if you prefer that), I’ll add some information about the venue tonight and Cindy Sheehan.
Sheehan became the face of the anti-war movement in 2005, with her Camp Casey setup at Bush’s Crawford Ranch. I’m sure most of you remember that more than I do. She’s become reviled by a lot of people since then, although she’s also the hero of a lot of people. Kos hates her for some unknown reason. She ran against Nancy Pelosi for Congress in 2008 as an independent (with the support of the Green and Peace and Freedom Parties) and got about 17% of the vote, better than anyone else in that race except for Pelosi.
Interestingly, I just picked up a copy of Johnny Got His Gun yesterday and there was an introduction by Sheehan. I think I’m going to get it signed by her.
If you’re in or near Philadelphia, Sheehan will be in the area for a few more days. Her events are in this list: http://bucksmontprogressiveeve…
