Oye, not again

Apparently, the relative obscurity to which Cindy! has been regulated to in the last few months doesn't sit well. In an attempt to relive her glory days, Cindy! is returning to Crawford:

The fallen soldier’s mother who drew thousands to her 26-day war protest near President Bush’s ranch this summer plans to return for Thanksgiving next week, despite new county ordinances banning roadside camping.

Cindy Sheehan and at least a dozen supporters are prepared to be arrested as they return to the makeshift campsite along the road leading to Bush’s ranch, where he is expected to spend the holiday.

“It is critical for our democracy that we continue to ask the same questions that Cindy Sheehan asked this summer: What is the noble cause for the war with Iraq, and at what point do we say enough bloodshed has happened?” said Hadi Jawad, co-founder of the Crawford Peace House.

This is like Groundhog Day isn't it? It doesn't matter how many times the question gets asked, and answered - the next day it gets asked all over again.

But, you know, my kids do this. They ask me if they can buy candy when we are at the grocery store. I never say yes. The answer is always the same. Yet, every time we go shopping, they ask again, as if THIS time they are going to get the answer they want. The answer Cindy! wants, of course, is that it was a folly to go to war, and that all our men should return home immediately. Consequences be damned.
