She is also uneducated about what she speaks about. Nutty actually.
I understand grief - but I don't agree that because she lost a son she has some moral highground where her words cannot be critiqued.
And I never said whatsisname can't be critiqued either.
I never said she couldn't be critiqued, either. I just don't hate her; to read some posts, you'd think there are some here who would advocate having her shot at dawn for what she's saying.
I spent four years working in psych, and I saw people who were once rational come completely unhinged after a death in the family. Add to that the outside influences that are pushing Ms. Sheehan on, and I can see how her behavior has become so erratic.
I also think that time has a way of teaching people to look at things from several sides, rather than one narrow conscript. There's something to be said for some life eperience giving you a little bit of perspective. I simply cannot judge someone who has lost her son, then been used by political opportunists.
But that's just me, big bad bleeding heart that I am. I guess I should go sit in my corner and shut up now, before I get called a traitor, too.
