Cindy Sheehan Is Starving for Attention -- Literally

From Michael Moore's website, via Sweetness & Light:

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

Dear Friends,

GSFP and Code Pink are sponsoring a hunger strike for peace which begins July 04, called Troops Home Fast Some of us like Dick Gregory and Diane Wilson will be fasting until the troops come home from Iraq, and some, like me, will be fasting for a specified time. My fast will begin on 7/04 and end on the last day of Camp Casey: 09/02.

We are announcing the fast from Washington, DC on 07/04 and having our last supper on 07/03 in Lafayette Park.

If you can join us in DC on the 3rd and 4th, or fast in solidarity with us on that day, or any other time, please let me know.

Also, Jodie Evans is throwing me a birthday party at Bus Boys and poets on the 3rd of July from 9pm to 11pm....our last food will be before midnight that day....please come to my party, if you can!!!

Love and peace soon,

Three exclamations points, Cindy is really excited.

But Michael Moore sends his regrets.

You notice the one who needs it,dosen't do it .Michael go on a hunger strike please you big fat,never mind.

Let's hope this goes longer than Saddam's "fast"

I didn't know that term had two meanings

Saddam Hussein sends his regrets.

Code Pink crazies not eating for 60 days? This is a dream come true. Maybe they will just shrivel up and disappear!

I will show my 'solidarity' by consuming mass quantities of beef and potato salad on July 4th.

My day is TOTALLY ruined. Cindy Sheehan's birthday is 7/3? Omigod - so is MINE! Could 2 more dissimilar people be born on the same day?

Big Mo:

Alert: Gitmo ruling handed down. The Supreme Court in effect says that, if I understand this correctly, we're supposed to give terrorists geneva convention rights even though they will never, ever afford us the same rights.

The media says that the ruling says that "President Bush overstepped his authority in ordering military war crimes trials for Guantanamo Bay detainees."

dang, for a minute there i thought that letter meant that moore was going to be fasting. he could certainly use a few months of it.

Hope Momma SheHag takes the cash saved in her food bill and buy a headstone for her son. Last I heard it was still without.

This has been around for a bit - CNSNews was spreading it around. I posted on the 22nd about it (click thru my name to read). Or you can read the following summary: Bush's playtime in Iraq is up, because surely once America learns that Dick Gregory is skipping snacks for a day they're surely going to attack the White House with rage and demand our retreat from Iraq...once they figure out who Dick Gregory is. Wonder if it'll last as long as Saddam's hunger strike? For those keeping score, that would be one (1) meal.

I am not a psychiatrist but it just appears that Cindy Sheehan is mentally ill. The Far Left knows this and are pathetically using her. BTW Marc, isn't a headstone provided by the military? When my father died, the military provided his headstone since he was a veteran. Maybe nutty Cindy told them she didn't want it.

Mac Lorry:

No need to fret, the odds are that there are over 16,427,000 people alive today that were born on July 3rd, or any other day of the year.

Has anyone on here ever met her? She looks like she smells real bad.

I seriously doubt that Shee... (Below threshold)

I seriously doubt that Sheehan has enough integrity or intestinal fortitude to maintain a real fast for 60 days. I'd like to see what their definition of a fast entails.

Let me get this straight...... (Below threshold)

Let me get this straight...
It's called
"Troops Home Fast Some of us like Dick Gregory and Diane Wilson will be fasting until the troops come home from Iraq, and some, like me, will be fasting for a specified time."????

Maybe she's giving up punctuation and grammar checking as well as food!

Lorie - you're right! Hunger strikes are indeed hilarious. (The funniest was Gandhi!)

Brain fasts are even funnier. Dont ever end Yours.

60 days?Yeah right... (Below threshold)

60 days?

Yeah right. And is this a total fast of everything except water or is she going to be sipping juice as she goes?

Can we get some kind of "Hunger Strike" meter in the side column with an over/under on how long she actually lasts.

I say 10 days tops.

Yes, why can't Moore go on ... (Below threshold)
cate s.:

Yes, why can't Moore go on a hunger strike, he could stand to lose about 200 pounds. Well, it will be interesting to see how long this lasts.

Cindy,Don't stop a... (Below threshold)
Jack Burton:


Don't stop at 2 months. Keep going. Try six months, if that doesn't work, try 12. Hell, I'd keep the troops in Iraq just to see her suffer.

Sounds like jp2 is on a permanent fast--got his foot in his mouth all the time.

Peter F.:

A group of pro-troop supporters should sit across and downwind from Cindy gorging on Big Macs and Whoppers.

actually you want to be sitting upwind with your Big Macs and Whoppers so that Cindy and her pathetic partners will be able to smell real food and so that you and your party wont have to smell her or her unwashed friends. Although you might need a strong stomach because just looking at the typical hunger striker is enough to gag any sane person

"She blew through the door ... (Below threshold)

"She blew through the door like TNT...put her hand on her hip then pointed her finger at me..."

What's the point of a hunger strike?


What happened to the spark in that human dynamo?

She's almost got the initial grief out of her system, maybe?

Yeah, that's probobly it.

Now she needs to get on with life.

Oh...but wait a minute.

People from the United States of America are still taking hits and falling in pieces into the Middle East dust.

That's a problem.

Mm hmm.

So maybe Cindy should chase down two cheeseburgers with a power drink...and come back out swinging?


If not for the dead...then for the living that deserve better.

I imagine it's the sort of ... (Below threshold)

I imagine it's the sort of fast that involves eating. Maybe a dawn to dusk one like Moslems do? Who knows. Maybe just suppers? That would make sense with the "last supper" phrase.

Of course it's an attention getting ploy.

Religious sorts generally fast for their own spiritual growth, to practice self-denial and to pray.

BTW... I'm pretty sure that Casey has his headstone now.

James Cloninger:

Ghandi sends his regrets as well, but offers to send Nathuram Godse and a pot of mutton and cabbage in his place.

James Cloninger:

In all seriousness, ol' Cindy could stand a lose a few stone around her middle. I, for one, do not want to see her manic grinning self being hauled away by a policeman with her floppy midriff exposed ever again!

Cindy has every right to protest a war she sees as injust. And Conservatives who support the war have every right to protest her. I'm hoping that she'll draw every crazy lib in the nation into this. Just until after the elections of course. That way, they'll be too weak to vote.

You know, last I heard we l... (Below threshold)

You know, last I heard we lived in a free country to make decisions. Those FINE young men and women chose to fight for their country. Nobody made them sign up. I commend them for their bravery. If Casey was still alive and recieved a Purple Heart, I bet SheHag would be right there in the picture with him, proud of her baby. Give it up hag, like they say, you are so yesterday. And you are a disgrace to some proud Americans. If you don't like it here, go somewhere else and I'm sure you will be back in no time. You should be ashamed.

While not surprising that the Cashew is doing this, it is a surprise that Moore isn't participating. Cheeseburgers, apparently are more important than a lame cause.

I think that the most support for Cindy will come for those hoping to see her shrivel away (her mental state would suggest accelerated stages).

Last I heard about the whole headstone gig was that Cindy left it alone; much like she did when she gave up Casey after her first marriage. Nice work, really classy.

Cindy do us all a favor...m... (Below threshold)

Cindy do us all a favor...move out of the country. Chavez will welcome you with open arms. You are such a media whore.
