Mismanaged Compassion

Cindy Sheehan was indeed upset about Hurricane Rita this week. But not for the reasons you might think. It was because she didn’t get to be the center of attention with her “protest” (more on that later). Here is what she had to say on dailykos.com:

i am watching cnn and it is 100 percent rita…even though it is a little wind and a little rain…it is bad, but there are other things going on in this country today…and in the world!!!!

She sure was quick to jump all over the government response to Katrina. It is clear now that was because it didn’t interfere with her own media coverage. This statement lets us see into the real Cindy. A little wind and rain? I’m certain the people that lost their homes don’t see it that way. Sorry your demonstration wasn’t top priority today Cindy. The media, and your public, sure is fickle, isn’t it?
