Unilateralist Bush occupies NOLA without UN mandate...

Seen in Best of the Web:

Forgotten but not gone, mad mama Cindy Sheehan is still ranting away over at the Fluffington Toast in hope of defying Andy Warhol and scoring a 16th minute of fame. In her latest post, she declares, "George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self [sic] from power."

Mrs. Sheehan, originally a sympathetic figure, is now merely a pathetic one, and we're inclined to ignore her totally, except that we keep remembering all those Angry Left types who, a few short weeks ago, were declaring that she had "absolute moral authority" and was going to transform American politics. If thinking about that doesn't give you a good, deep, soul-cleansing laugh, nothing will...

I remember. "This time it's curtains for Chimpyburton McBush. We have the silver bullet that will drive a wooden stake through his heart!" I expected Sheehan to fade once people got a good look at what a poisonous little screwball she is, but the speed of the meltdown is surprising. No doubt George Galloway still cherishes her.

And I suppose those criminals and thugs who were terrorizing people in New Orleans when authority broke down are now going to be called "insurgents?" Or maybe "freedom fighters?"
