The Sheehan Spectacle

She willingly gets arrested and is carried away with a smile on her face awash in a sea of flashes from dozens of cameras. Jeez, the insanity over this woman has got to stop.

Cindy Sheehan, the California woman driven by her son’s death in Iraq to re-ignite the anti-war movement, was arrested Monday while protesting outside the White House.

Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.

Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was handcuffed, then led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, “The whole world is watching.” Others who were arrested also cooperated with police. Sgt. Scott Fear, spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said they would be charged with demonstrating without a permit, which is a misdemeanor.

Park Police Sgt. L.J. McNally said Sheehan and the others would be taken to a processing center where they would be fingerprinted and photographed, then given a ticket and released. The process would take several hours, he said.

Like she had anything else to do. And I’m sure she’ll have plenty of offers from other moonbats to pay the fine.

And what is it with Drudge and this headline?
