Sheehanigans Does Celluloid

This is beyond Sheehan fatigue:

And where is "home" to her now?


She pauses and sighs, sinking into the window seat and pulling a quilt up to her chin. "Nowhere, really ... ."

She's averaging just two days per month here. The next morning she will fly off again, the surreal star of what is -- depending largely on one's political perspective -- either an epic tragedy or a farce. After stops for protests in New Orleans and Washington, D.C., she will breakfast in Manhattan with actress Susan Sarandon, who is set to portray her in a biopic movie. A crew will film Sheehan for a weekly reality series on the Sundance Channel. Her letters to President Bush inspired "Peace Mom," a one-woman monologue show in London. A memoir is due to her publisher April 1.

Ugh.

Oh, and anyone who'd go see a movie with Susan Sarandon will like this one just fine.

Wow! I didn't think that they would ever make a sequel to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. But then again, I shouldn't be surprised since the liberals have been trying to "do the time warp" back to the 60's for nearly 40 years now.

The Real Steve:

Who is the money behind this farce?
Shortly after Sheehan hit the scene this became a vehicle for her to make money. She boo hoo's about the war all the way to the bank.
I fail to understand what it is that is so compelling about this womans' life that she warrants a book and a movie (beside the obvious point that she is a liberal tool). Liberals like to spout the number of dead and wounded soldiers from Iraq, but you would think that Sheehan's son was the only casualty twho had a mother.
Just as in so many other areas, follow the money, I believe that she is profitting greatly from all of this.

mj:

Wouldn't it be more interesting to make a movie with a mom who lost her son and supports the war?
There are many but no media attention to focus on them. I hope the movie states that her son volunteered not once but twice (but ofcourse the movie is not about her fallen son).

And now a movie about this ... (Below threshold)

And now a movie about this media tool, plucked from her anonymous, months-long protest, to suddenly burst into the light of media coverage.

And, yet, as Ben Stein pointed out after the Oscars, there has still not been a single flick made showing the true efforts of our troops.

bennito:

You assholes must be so proud of all the intelligent, mature, and relevant comments made here. You're all so worried about Susan Sarandon and Cindy Sheehan, while George Bush sinks this country into the gutter - right in front of your eyes. But I guess calling Cindy Sheehan "ugly" is infinitely more important than debating what a douche bag George Bush is.

Should anyone really wonder why things are in such bad shape in DC when the country has morons like all of you?

I mean Erin Brockivich was not that good, so I can only imagine how bad this one will be.

And they wonder why box office numbers are down.

Hey Beannitto, in case you have,nt noticed , Mother Sheehan is UGLY witha capitol UGGGG.. but dont worry i,ll bet she get,s an emmy for Best plastic surgery or body double

Now, now, now... most real people are ugly, or at the very least, fail to look like movie stars. That she looks like a person is no reason to criticize Cindy. She's creepy and disgusting... it's got nothing to do with her looks.

Maybe Cindy will make some money with this movie. So far she's been spending money. She spent the last of Casey's death benifits quite some time ago.

I think the Vanity Fair photographer is brilliant. A person would have to be, to convince someone to pose in such a way as to reveal their true self. As a mother, seeing a mother lying full length on top of her dead son is... suggestively obscene. If he'd been married and it was his young wife the possible sexual symbolism wouldm't even be in question. Everyone would "get" it. But it was his mother... and there is no way she caught the subtext but you can bank money that a world class photographer *did*.

Anyhow, so bennito will go to the movie. That's one.

You can probably add names from hollywood that will show up for this triping trashheap of noncreative bushbashing , but i bet none of them spends a buck to get in..they,ll probably hold autograph signing gigs outside the theatre and profit off of casey,s memory ! just like someone else..
