This is from Cindy Sheehan's latest post:
Well, George and I are leaving Crawford today. George is finished playing golf and telling his fables in San Diego , so he will be heading to Louisiana to see the devastation that his environmental policies and his killing policies have caused. Recovery would be easier and much quicker if almost ½ of the three states involved National Guard were not in Iraq. All of the National Guard's equipment is in Iraq also. Plus, with the 2 billion dollars a week that the private contractors are siphoning from our treasury, how are we going to pay for helping our own citizens in Louisiana , Mississippi, and Alabama? And, should I dare say "global warming?" and be branded as a "conspiracy theorist" on top of everything else the reich-wingers say about me.

(Emphasis added.)

There's no justification for this. With every other sane American, I understand her grief about the death of her son. But she's gone well beyond the expression of grief with comments like these (and other nutty things she's said, a la the war in Afghanistan wasn't justified either, this is just about Israel, etc. etc. etc.).
