Bush Snubs Cindy Sheehan, again

Go ahead, Dubya. Keep acting like this. See if the voices of hundreds can't bring you down.

Bush passes by protesters, but doesn't stop

CRAWFORD — From the window of his limousine, President Bush got a motorcade view of more than 100 anti-war protesters camped outside his ranch as he rode to a political fund-raiser today near his spread. Bush did not stop.

Law enforcement agencies used their cars to block two intersecting roads, where the demonstrators have camped out all week, and required them to stand behind yellow tape. They were not asked to leave their makeshift campsite.

Cindy Sheehan, a California mother leading the protesters, held a sign that read: "Why do you make time for donors and not for me?"

It's unclear whether Bush, riding in a black Suburban with tinted windows, looked at the demonstrators as his caravan passed. He arrived before noon, local time, at a neighbor's ranch for a barbecue where he was expected to raise at least $2 million for the Republican National Committee, said RNC spokeswoman Tracey Schmitt.
Dubya likes to posture like he's some tough-guy cowboy, but really, he's the biggest pussy there ever was.

Amen for Cindy Sheehan. Arianna Huffington posted a great column today on how Sheehan is stepping into a leadership gap that no Democrat has attempted to fill. We'll see how long Dubya can ignore her until his poll numbers start to dip even lower.
