Bad Choice for an Antiwar Voice


By Charles Krauthammer

Friday, September 30, 2005; Page A19


" 'Harry, what the hell are you doing campaigning for that crippled son-of-a-bitch that killed my son Joe?' Kennedy said, referring to his oldest son, who had died in the war. Kennedy went on, saying Roosevelt had caused the war. Truman, by his later account, stood all he could, then told Kennedy to keep quiet or he would throw him out the window."

-- "Truman," by David McCullough, Page 328

A large number of Americans feel deep and understandable unease about the war in Iraq and want nothing more than to pull out. But the antiwar movement is singularly disserved by its leadership, such as it is. Its de facto leader is Cindy Sheehan, who catapulted herself into that role by quite brilliantly exploiting the media's hunger for political news during the August recess and by wrapping herself in the courage of her son Casey, who died in Iraq.

Her loss and grief deserve sympathy and respect. However, Sheehan believes that they entitle her to special standing in opposing a war in which her son served, about which he (as far as we know) expressed no misgivings, and for which he indeed reenlisted.

<skip>

The antiwar movement has found itself ill served by endowing absolute moral authority on a political radical who demanded that American troops leave not just Iraq but "occupied New Orleans." Who blames Israel for her son's death. Who complained that the news media went "100 percent rita" -- "a little wind and a little rain" -- rather than covering other things in the world, meaning her.

4. That isn't Krauthammer
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 04:48 PM by ZombyWoof
That's an excerpt from the David McCullough book "Truman".

It at least highlights what a miserable fuck the Kennedy patriarch was.

3. Typical bullshit smear job.
I don't recall...when did we elect Cindy our leader?
When did we draft the resolution
conferring "absolute moral authority" upon her?

Typical crap from the right;
at this point, they are so completely WRONG
that they can't even lie about the truth,
they have to lie about other lies!

I love the smell of desperation in the morning!
