Cindy Sheehan was on Bill Maher’s show last night. When Maher asked her jokingly that if she didn’t get satisfaction from George Bush, would she go over his head to Cheney or Rumsfeld, she replied:
"You know what Bill, I have gone over his head, I’ve gone to the American people. And we employ him, he’s our employee."
This lady has found her voice, and it’s a great voice. It’s a quiet, somber, smart voice, and I think that she’s going to be a great face for the American people’s growing frustration with the war.
Sheehan was an average American speaking in her own voice, and having it heard. And it’s resonating. I predict that we’ve seen just the beginning of Cindy Sheehan.
