From Tomdispatch comes "Cindy Sheehan's War -- Cindy, Don, and George: On Being in a Ditch at the Side of the Road ."
Sheehan is a phenomenon -- but few have attempted to put her in the larger context of the moment in Iraq, in Washington, in the military, and in Crawford, Texas. This piece focuses on an administration suddenly in uncharacteristic disarray and a President who prides himself on not flinching, giving ground, or ever saying he's sorry, but who has also had remarkably good luck until he ran into Cindy Sheehan.
Whether in his presidential runs, in Congress, or elsewhere, he really hasn't come up against an opponent who was ready to dig in and duke it out blow for blow, an opponent ready never to flinch, never to apologize, never to mince words, never to take prisoners.
