The pro-Bush camp in Crawford

Barbara brought up a good point to me about the movement on the pro-Bush side to counter Camp Casey in Crawford. From what I've read, they can't even be original about it.

You would think, by watching the news, that most people think Cindy Sheehan is a loon and are scrambling to support the president. As we can see from recent polls, this is not the case.

And as we saw at our recent vigil in support of Cindy Sheehan, the majority of people were with us, with one lone protestor against our event. People were walking in off the street to join us. And this was in Oceanside, home of Camp Pendleton and the military core of Southern California.

So... don't believe the hype. If the media were covering the events in Crawford accurately, we would see a huge movement in favor of Sheehan through the support she is getting from people from all over the country, not just the opposition in Texas - one of the few states in which Bush is polling positively.
