Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Monday in or near the hearing room where Gen. David Petraeus and U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Ryan Crocker are testifying on the situation in Iraq, according to the U.S. Capitol Police.
Sheehan was the face of the anti-war movement before saying in May of this year that she would “retire” from the cause. Shortly thereafter, she announced that she would seek the congressional seat of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Attention whores never learn. Ms. Sheehan has lost any claim to sympathy for the death of her son. Casey Sheehan, our thoughts are with you and the sacrifice you made, but your mother has gone from pitiable to annoying to despicable.
