Have you ever considered what sweet justice it would be if the chickenhawk and warmonger Bush was haunted by a soldier whose life had been sacrificed in this war of choice, who followed him everywhere, kept him awake nights, and strayed never far, leaving him with no refuge, no sanctuary, from the crushing responsibility of the lives lost at his hand, holding him to ghostly account?

What about a dead soldier’s mother?

War protester Cindy Sheehan has purchased a 5-acre plot in Crawford with some of the insurance money she received after her son was killed in Iraq.

The group she helps lead, Gold Star Families for Peace, says on its Web site that it will return next month to protest the war in Iraq in the small town near Waco where President Bush has a ranch. Like last year, Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed in Iraq in 2004, will again demand to meet with the president.

"We decided to buy property in Crawford to use until George's resignation or impeachment, which we all hope is soon for the sake of the world," Sheehan said in a newsletter set to be sent to supporters Thursday.
Say what you will about Cindy Sheehan, but she is willing to do what the media, Congress, and many of the American people are not—never let Bush escape from his responsibility, never give him the luxury of not being forced to confront what he has done.
