Camp Casey vs. Camp Reality

Beth at Yeah, Right, Whatever took a trip to Crawford, Texas.

You read right... we drove up to Crawford. I'd love to say that we had a special invite to have bbq at the Western White House, but that's not quite right. We were there to...well, like I said yesterday, we went to reclaim something that was being used by someone who had no right to it.

Definitely worth reading.

Also here is an interesting observation that Beth makes in this post:

In my post about our trip yesterday, I mentioned that the folks at Camp Casey seemed... organized... professional... there are quite a few of them who are camping there for the duration... good food and supplies... now Mother Sheehan's Mystery Bus Tour...

How many tens of thousands of dollars are being spent in that small town in Texas? And who's paying for it? And why?

I have avoided blogging about Cindy Sheehan. I just don't think she's as newsworthy as the MSM would like her to be... but I do think if we could find the deep pockets of "Camp Casey" that can provide their protestors with free food and supplies is an interesting story, indeed.

According to local ABC affiliate news channel 7 based in California, Fenton Communications is in charge of the PR campaign which has done extensive work with and did their ad campaign which tried to discredit Alberto Gonzalez.

Others helping fund the "marketing" of Cindy Sheehan's message:
Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's fame (ever heard of them?)
Democracy for America (Howard Dean's organization)
Code Pink

And what are these organizations funding? They are funding bitterness, anger and an emotionally unbalanced woman:

Am I emotional? Yes, my first born was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a PNAC Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the army to protect America, not Israel. Am I stupid? No, I know full well that my son, my family, this nation and this world were betrayed by George Bush who was influenced by the neo-con PNAC agendas after 9/11. We were told that we were attacked on 9/11 because the terrorists hate our freedoms and democracy not for the real reason, because the Arab Muslims who attacked us hate our middle-eastern foreign policy - Cindy Sheehan, 03/15/05

If you think this about one woman's plea to the president, you are sadly mistaken. This is a highly funded, slick, campaign for the Democrat party. This is a way to discredit the president and to discourage the nation regarding Iraq. Stop listening to some woman who's son only wanted to serve his country with honor who's memory has been shattered by his mother's hysterical pleas.
