What are they thinking?

I know I said I wasn't going to start writing until November but I couldn't contain myself any longer. As I sat eating lunch in the chow hall where I am training I happened to notice a report about the anti-war protestors in Washington D.C. The video was of Cindy Sheehan talking to some policemen. Although I couldn't hear what she was saying I am sure it was a bunch of garbage. What strikes me the most about the whole Cindy Sheehan thing is that the media just can't seem to get enough of her. Why is this lady the figure-head of the anti-Iraq crowd? In my book she is an ignorant disgrace to all that would follow her and also to the memory of her son. I told my parents on several occasions that if they ever denounced the war in Iraq or our policy there just because of my death I would try to disown them from the grave.
I know I am beating a dead horse but was her son forced to join the military? Since he wasn't and did so according to his own free will, why isn't she protesting against him? He had a choice whether or not to join and I am sure he didn't join the army to cuddle with teddy bears and sip cappuccino while discussing philosophy. Cindy's protest is utterly baseless and anyone who wanted to protest the war on legit grounds would get rid of her. The lamestream media just don't have a clue. They are willing to put anyone or anything on air as long as it is anti-Iraq, Bush, or war in general.
I guess if she is the best the anti crowd has to offer then us normies (pro Iraq policy crowd) aren't that bad off. Now if only the media could get their heads out of their four point of contacts.
