Cindy Sheehan is running for Congress against Nancy Pelosi. Why? To quote Jonah Goldberg, because ours is a just and decent God.
I am really sorry her son, who enlisted in the all volunteer military, died.
In May 2000, Sheehan enlisted in the United States Army as a light-wheeled vehicle mechanic, MOS 63B. It has been reported that he had originally wanted to be a Chaplain's assistant MOS 56M. (Sheehan had acted as an altar server during the Palm Sunday mass on the morning of his death). Near the end of his tour of duty, the U.S. invasion of Iraq began. Sheehan re-enlisted, knowing that his unit would be sent to IraqI wish she had a better understanding on why he made that decision.
