If a tree falls on Cindy Sheehan in the Drudge Report, does it make a sound?

I've been avoiding saying anything about Cindy Sheehan. I doubt that protesting the Iraq war by the side of a road in Crawford in August is the best way to work out your grief. There is clearly nothing Bush could say or do to mollify her, just as it's clear there is nothing Bush is willing to do in that vein. It's just a sad situation.

In the "not helpful" category: A certain problem of logic arises when someone claims to be "silently, respectfully grieving" and supporting the president and troops "silently, with prayer and respect" by broadcasting it the Drudge Report.
