GOP Hate Barbecue! Bring the Kids!

Clear Channel station KLFX is having an Anti-Cindy Sheehan rally with free burgers and Coca Cola this Saturday afternoon in Crawford, hosted by the subtly-named and no doubt overcompensating Jack Hammer. They're inviting soldiers from Ford Hood to come down and say that they would be ashamed of their mother if she did what Cindy Sheehan is doing. Of course, not having died yet as a result of being poorly equipped Iraqi cannon fodder, this is pure speculation.

Smells like Team Rove.

I'll be curious to know how many service men and women show up to mock this woman's grief for her son.

My cousin Larry sent me this today:
Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience... Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty.

Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves, and all the while the grand thieves are running and robbing the country. That's our problem.
--Howard Zinn
Think I'll take a Pasadena on the free hate burgers. The price is way too high.
