Sheehag's Euro tour

From the AP:
Iraq War protester Cindy Sheehan and 26 other peace activists were found guilty Thursday of protesting without a permit near the White House.

They were each ordered to pay $75 in fines and court costs, but Sheehan's lawyer said he plans to appeal the verdict.

"We weren't demonstrating," Sheehan told reporters after the trial.

All the defendants contended they were trying to deliver petitions to the White House calling for an end to the war in Iraq on Sept. 26, but found no one willing to accept them.

"Our petitions were rejected like every request I have made of the president has been rejected," Sheehan said.

Sheehan, 48, of Berkeley, Calif., has tried repeatedly to meet with President Bush since her 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in Iraq last year. She spent several weeks near the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch this summer, and plans to return there Thanksgiving week.

"I absolutely believe he has an obligation to meet with me," Sheehan said.
He already has met with you, Mother June 2004. You've since John Kerryed your version of how the meeting went. Anyway, I scoured the Constitution to see if you were entitled one, much less two, visits with the Commander-in-Chief. No dice. The last paragraph:
Sheehan said she plans to take her peace activist message to Europe next month with stops in London and Madrid.
Sorry...I just had a flashback to the 1979 song by M called Pop Musik:

New York, London, Paris, Munich
Everybody talk about pop musik...

But remember, folks: she's not a publicity whore who is well over her credit limit on her Platinum 15-Minutes-of-Fame Card, and aligned with some of the most loony moonbat organizations out there. No, she's just a poor grieving mother from Berkeley with no axe to grind and whose words haven't been used by the Al Jazeera Terrorvision Network and whose family didn't rebuke her. Right...and the Sierra Club is only interested in sound environmental policy instead of world socialism!
