I hate Sheehan

I really do. I was discussing this with my fiance last night and it really is distressing to me. I hate her because she says things like this:

“The administration has abused our soldiers. They've abused our freedoms,” Sheehan said. “They have killed my son and countless others. And they must be held accountable.

“Impeachment is not a fringe movement. It is mandated in our Constitution. Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table,” Sheehan said.
It makes me want to vomit. My problem with Sheehan goes beyond her raving or her socialist tendencies. I can tolerate that. What really burns me up is when she says that Bush killed her son.

The lives of soldiers in the military are offered willingly by them as patriotic sacrifices. If anyone insinuates that somehow their free will has been violated, that their lives were somehow torn from them, rather than offered -- they have just reduced the most noble sacrifice a man can make into a pitiable situation. And that is the theft of something precious.
