Deafening silence from the right re: Cindy Sheehan

I guess they only complain when she blasts Republicans since they seem to be silently gloating as she blasts Democrats:
Led by Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a slain soldier, the protesters chanted "De-escalate, investigate, troops home now" as Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., began outlining the Democrats' plans to ban lobbyist-funded travel and institute other ethics reforms. The press conference was held in the Cannon House Office Building in an area open to the public.

Sheehan says she has nothing against lobbying reform, but she and her fellow anti-war activists want Democrats to know they will keep pressuring Congress to end the war in Iraq.

"We wanted the Democrats to know they're back in power because of the grass roots," Sheehan says.

The anti-war activists held their own Capitol Hill press conference earlier in the day before deciding to attend the lobbying reform press conference as well.
Well, yes, Cindy, the grassroots did help the Democratic majority find a home, but we all do not agree with you. Cindy, I too am against this war, I too want the killings to stop, and I too want investigations and a speedy withdrawal. But your actions do not speak for me, and your demands have no merit. We will not punish our own to make a political point. There is a way out of this, but your way is not that way, and I for one would greatly appreciate it if you did your best to stop your personal creation of a liberal version of Pat Robertson. Thanks.

Actually, you make a pretty good point. I myself have called her that once or twice.

Your 'Village Idiot' has come home to roost enjoy her!

What is next is that Democrats in Congress are going to work to bring home War on Terror largesse to their districts... just wait and see.

Happened during Vietnam, it will be happening again....
