Peace mom Cindy Sheehan meets with Elizabeth Dole over Iraq war
(AP) September 30, 2005 - It's no surprise that North Carolina Senator Elizabeth Dole and anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan don't see eye-to-eye on the war in Iraq.
The two women met privately for ten minutes Thursday to discuss the war.

Dole's office issued a statement saying statements made by Sheehan and her political organization undermine the war on terror and are detrimental to the military. Dole is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Sheehan was more direct. She called Dole "a gentle lady" and a "warmonger," the latter a term she used to describe Arizona Senator John McCain after meeting with him on Wednesday.

Sheehan's conference with Dole was one of several scheduled this week as part of her campaign to persuade members of Congress to explain the reasons for the war. She spoke before a massive anti-war rally Saturday on the National Mall and was arrested Monday demonstrating in front of the White House.

Elizabeth Dole is a shill for the corporate, elitist elements which permeate our system. If Dole wants to see someone "detrimental to the military", Dole need do nothing more than peer into her mirror.

Dole's characterization is particularly hollow in light of the fact that she can point to having "no skin in the game" like so many more of the "chickenhawks" from the right wing. I wonder how many shares of Haliburton, Bechtel and the other "defense" corporations she and Bob hold in their cushy investment accounts.

It just slays me how these right wing hacks seem to be able to skate off like Frist, and the rest of these blood sucking criminals.
