She's back, and dumber than ever. Cindy Sheehan, in a piece titled--oddly, given its thesis--"Resign, Rumbo":

The outcry calling Rumbo to resign due to incompetence is specious, at best. I think that in cowardly attempts to avoid what is really important in this mistake in Iraq . . . [ellipsis in original] calling for Rumbo to resign, or for George to fire him, is definitely a smoke screen to not have to talk about who else should resign: George, Darth Cheney, Condi, Alberto, etc. Rumbo is not the only callous and incompetent member of this devious administration who lied our country into war and has authorized crimes against humanity from the very highest level of our government: the executive branch.

The Gandhian deep thinker comes perilously close to word salad:
With almost a million people dead due to the gross ineptitude of BushCo and over three million displaced, it is time to stop punishing one country for the crime of being trapped in George's corrupt and insatiable lust for blood, guts and glory. It's ironic that the glory he sought will be forever turned into infamy as he goes down in history as the worst president in a long line of pretty bad presidents! A gullible public more interested in American Idol than our nation's leaders committing or endorsing cold-blooded murder were satisfied with the lies of a grateful Iraqi public with oil flowing into our tanks and goodwill flowing over the oceans were given only a desert awash with blood and guts and littered with shrapnel and limbs blown off with cluster bombs that look like toys.

But finishes strong, or at least coherently:
Instead of calling for Rumbo's resignation, good people of humanity from all parties, should be calling for impeachment, removal from office and imprisonment for all of the Bush regime.

This would be true progress in our search for peace and justice.

Vote for Peace on November 7th and join GSFP for their accountability sit-in surrounding the White House.
Not sane, but coherent.

Update: Rumbo? Never heard that one before. I probably need to get out more.

Update II: Tim Blair has a picture of Cindy in front of the White House today. The sign she's holding has a rather common mistake (scroll down).

Update III: AP: "Peace mom Sheehan arrested in front of White House." Hadn't heard that appellation in a while.
