Frank Rich and Cindy
When Mr. Bush's motorcade left a grieving mother in the dust to speed on to a fund-raiser, that was one fat-cat party too far. The strategy of fighting a war without shared national sacrifice has at last backfired, just as the strategy of Swift Boating the war's critics has reached its Waterloo before Patrick Fitzgerald's grand jury in Washington. The 24/7 cable and Web attack dogs can keep on sliming Cindy Sheehan. The president can keep trying to ration the photos of flag-draped caskets. But this White House no longer has any more control over the insurgency at home than it does over the one in Iraq.
everything i see and read points to cindy sheehan as the "tipping point" for the disastrous bush administration... the five-day iraq war sales trip may be a small indicator that they recognize they're being tipped... but as heedless, arrogant, and power-mad as the bushco crew is, i don't see them altering course for anything... after all, who and what will stop them...?
