"Who we’all honorin’ here today?"

That's what our great leader said when he entered the room to meet with Cindy Sheehan, a Gold Star mother who lost her 24-year-old son Casey in Iraq.

Read her account of that sickening meeting here.

She brilliantly articulates how I feel about Bush's "war on terror" strategy: "...this war is a catastrophe and we should bring the troops home and quit forcing the Iraqi people to pay for our government's hubris and quit forcing innocent children to suffer so we can allegedly fight terrorism somewhere besides America. How absolutely racist and immoral is it to take America's battles to another land and make an entire country pay for the crimes of others? To me, this is blatant genocide."
