Sheehan, Sharpton & Sheen Shannanigans
Man, this protest is really becoming a goddamn circus: Enter Al Sharpton. On Sunday, Sharpton joined Sheehan in laying roses at crosses near "Camp Casey." "I feel that it is our moral obligation to stand and to be courageous with these families, and particularly Cindy, that have become the conscience of this nation," said Sharpton, an activist and former Democratic presidential candidate. Al Sharpton talking about conscience. Me laughs. Me laughs hard. And then enter, The American President on West Wing ladies and gentlemen, Martin Sheen: Actor Martin Sheen, who portrays the Democratic president on NBC's "The West Wing," also met with Sheehan and spoke to a crowd of more than 300. "At least you've got the acting president of the United States," the actor said. "I think you know what I do for a living, but this is what I do to stay alive." Oh baby. And would it truly be a circus without a wedding at the memorial for dead soldiers? Amid all the comings and goings around Camp Casey on Sunday, peace activists Genevieve Van Cleve and Peter Ravella got married. The aisle was strewn with hay, and the crowd hummed "Here Comes the Bride." "This is meaningful. This has substance," said Van Cleve, 34, of Austin. "We completely support what they're doing, and we just wanted to add whatever love, fidelity, loyalty and honor that we could." And Vodka, don't forget to add Vodka. It's not complete without Vodka. Or at least that's what I need after reading this. Are those people high? They are having a wedding amidst what's supposed to be a memorial for dead soldiers? WTF? What's next? A Rock Concert? A Hemp Festival? A free-Love open air orgy? It would add love to the whole thing, without the restrictive fidelty part. And to think that this woman is idolized. Arghhh...... I need a drink!
