Chubby media whore to start her own party

posted at 10:03 am on October 23, 2006 by Allahpundit

Their platform calls for less guns and more butter. And lots, lots more ice cream:

Frank: I’ve heard a rumor that you may be looking to start your own third party. Is that true?

Sheehan: Yes, it is true. I think that to save our democracy our country needs a viable and credible third party. This nation was founded on rule by a few rich white males, and for all intents and purposes, we are still ruled by a corporate elite.

We need a third party that will represent all the people, not just the wealthy.

Socialism, in other words. A bold new direction for third parties.

Via Florida Cracker, who wonders why The Man, being The Man, had such a tough go of it in the revolution.

Update: Are people not making the connection between “chubby” and that absurd diet St. Cindy was on? It was a running joke here for months, not to mention the subject of our most popular Vent ever.

I’m afraid that BigB’s fearless, substantive dissent has been chillingly crushed by yours truly. He’ll no longer be joining us.

Note to our new trolls (whose ranks are thinning by the moment): insulting Michelle will result in immediate termination.

Allahpundit on October 23, 2006 at 1:07 PM

Alas, Dollydog will no longer be joining us. Fare thee well, nutbar.

Well done.

I mentioned a viable third party in my earlier comment. I meant one that could take advantage of infighting between the current two major parties. I realize there currently are other parties, but none of them are large enough that they are in any way a threat to the current major parties. If a third party was actually large enough that it was perceived as a possible threat, even remotely, the two major parties would have to play a little nicer. Just a thought.

I do strongly believe though, that the “All Cindy, all the time” party would not ever be viable. No basis in reality.

High Desert Wanderer on October 23, 2006 at 1:09 PM

the vast majority are of a particular persuasion that did not exist on this continent during the times of our founding fathers

We were here. Who the hell do you think bankrolled the Revolutionary War? We supplied deli to the colonial troops. We controlled the Constitutional Convention and wrote the Federalist Papers. We even put the right to abortion on demand into the Bill of Rights.

No harm meant shooter, but I’d rather AP & Co deal with this on a one-on-one basis, on the demerits.

I was hoping the “Island” reference would indicate the joking nature of my comment.
But no harm done, it’s difficult to add humor to static text, and I didnt achieve that very well.

Hey AP, how ’bout a sarcasm / or humor/ or joking tag or something similar? Anything but a smiley face.

Why are there so many people in the world that are more than willing to take up the mettle of ‘the Victim’? “It’s the evil corporations”, “It’s Bush’s fault”, “A few rich white men”.

I’ve got a newsflash for you Cindy, without those ‘few rich white men’ you most likely wouldn’t be here today.

I just have this feeling that one day Cindy is going to come out of the closet and reveal she has a “Wife!” Somebody she met at Camp Casey III. Then they’ll want to adopt a baby and name him Casey of course. Then she will become Rosie’s running mate for the 08′ run. Yikes!

Drtuddle on October 23, 2006 at 2:33 PM

This is really not much of a shock. I don’t know I read that “American Mourning” this weekend and I have more pity than contempt for her I guess but she’s clueless. A viable third party wouldn’t be a bad thing, not just the one she’s wanting. I think there are a lot of people in the middle who don’t like how the neo-cons have hijacked our party or how the kos kids have hijacked the democratic party.
Thanks to BadBrad.

infidel on October 23, 2006 at 3:02 PM

He wasn’t adopted but lived with his (conservative) father and very nice stepmother. Volunteered for the service, then volunteered to go back for a 2nd time. This infuriates her more than anything.

She really is a tragic figure, whom the left took advantage of until she became a liability. Now they don’t know what to do with her. On a human lever one feels for her and she really needs help. Doesn’t know how to separate from the long since passed 15 min. of TV glory.

On the “rich men” – isn’t Hugo Chavez filthy rich? how about Kerry, Moore, Streisand, the Kennedys, Pelosi, etc.?

If I’d start on socialism and the left, there wouldn’t be enought memory on this site to cover. A trilogy would be too short. Alas, let it be Entelechy. Just mumbling to self.

LOL! Excellent!

As a Republican, this is excellent news. The creation of a third part will seriously weaken Democrat clout and votes. It’s the same way that Nader prevented, or so it was alleged, Democrat gains. Instead of Naderists and Democrats pooling their resources in a collaborative effort to come into power, the Democrats lost votes and Naderites wasted their vote.

We should whole-heartedly support Sheehan’s new party. It means more gains for us, relatively speaking, and more losses for Democrats.

Were one to be partisan, of course.

i still say Indianapolis will be in the Super Bowl, but if Denver can beat the Colts this coming Sunday & have homefield advantage, then Denver will be back in the Super Bowl, but since i’m a AFC fan, so if Denver or Indianapolis are in the Super Bowl, i’m rooting for either one of them.

prediction – AFC Championship : Indianapolis vs. Denver
NFC Championship : Seattle vs. Chicago

Starblazer on October 23, 2006 at 4:47 PM

Starblazer,

Indianapolis or Denver? That seems pretty random. Denver doesn’t seem to have any offense this season (I thought Mike Shanahan was supposed to be an offensive genius – or was that because he had Elway?)

As for the NFC – neither Seattle (spanked by Minnesota) nor Chicago (almost lost to Arizona?) look like they are the teams to beat.

Rick on October 23, 2006 at 4:52 PM

Since this thread has transmogrified into a football fan frenzy (the only connection I can conjure is a similarity between Sheehan’s grille and a former Bronco’s quarterback I always called “horseface”)…

Do I get any points for integrity? I have always been, and continue to be, a Raider fan. I have hated Big Al with a passion since he sat Marcus Allen, but it’s my team. If someone can stay a Cub’s fan, noone has a valid reason to play bandwagon with their loyalty. So I accept my fate, the likely 3-13 season. Still better than being a Cowboys/Broncos/Giants fan. (Steelers and ‘Skins are ok by me)

I think a viable third party would be great, but, of course, I mean a viable third party that stands for everything I want. As for a party that speaks to the people…that would be nice, but Americans (as a whole) don’t want that. We like our politics the way we like our sit-coms; short, simple, full of beautiful people (we really need to work on that) and brimming with drama. If a candidate ever really tried to explain a complex policy and their stance on it to us, most of us would change the channel.

These “damned if ya’ do, damned if ya’ don’t” scenerios are the “real” torture. First, we had to sit back and watch while one poor brain-dead woman was slowly starved to death by her husband (Terry Schiavo). Now, we have to helplessly watch as the media incessantly parades yet another brain-dead woman in front of the television camera (Cindy Sheehan).

Please. I’m begging. Have mercy. I can’t take it anymore. The guys at the Animal House fraternity can water-board me every single day of pledge week, as long as I don’t have to watch one more video segment featuring Cindy Sheehan.

Only likely after this week, I’d add. The Cards keep showing so much potential to be a mediocre team and yet consistently blow it in the end. I, too, would be foaming at the mouth if I were the head coach.

The only thing I’ll give the Raiders credit for is that though they fail often, they fail spectacularly!

JoeEgo on October 24, 2006 at 12:31 AM

Shehag’s speaking down the road from me this week, and I’m kinda ambivalent about going and giving her any attention. Yet it would be fun to ask “If you knew, Mother Sheehan, that when you say things like describing the terrorists that murdered your son as “freedom fighters” and other traitorous comments like that, if you knew those comments had an effect on troop morale, would you shut your piehole, and if so, for how many minutes? Also, BTW, how many grand are they paying you for tonight’s performance?
