The Huffington Post group blog/news site is devoting much of its space today to Cindy Sheehan — who, as the anti-war mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, is camping out near George W. Bush’s Texas ranch to try to meet with the president.
A blog entry by author/Tribune Media Services columnist Arianna Huffington (the site’s namesake) said of Sheehan: “Who knows, her example might even be just the thing to give Hillary and Harry and the rest of the Democratic leaders the spine transplant they so desperately need. But don’t hold your breath. Instead, use it to show your support for Cindy Sheehan — and for our troops.”
Sheehan herself has two blog entries on the front page of the site. One begins: “This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. …”
Among the many other Huffington Post bloggers praising Sheehan on the site today are actress Christine Lahti, TV producer Norman Lear, and U.S. Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.).
