The Wacky Racers?
From the Bring Them Home Now Tour website:"We are currently at a significant turning point in how the American public views the war in Iraq. As the death toll in Iraq rises, Cindy Sheehan’s vigil near President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, has captured the hearts and minds of thousands of Americans."
Hearts & minds? Sure. More like bemused attention. It's kind of like the Michael Jackson trial or OJ's freeway chase. You know there are better things you should be doing with your time but you have to look.
Like the freak show at the circus we never know what sideshow act we'll see next: the Bearded Lady, Al Sharpton, Martin Sheen, or Jo Jo the Dog-Faced Boy.
Like a lot of other things, the entertainment value is on the decline.
