Carol Platt Liebau: As the Left Turns

As the Left Turns

Dennis Miller has often observed that the left tends to treat its "turncoats" with greater ugliness than does the right. Exhibit A is right here, as a writer with the left-wing British newspaper The Guardian eviscerates Cindy Sheehan. Amazing that many of the behaviors that previously bothered the left not at all -- including clearly anti-Semitic remarks -- are now being catalogued and purveyed by Sheehan's erstwhile friends.

She's even been banned from posting on the Daily Kos.

The entire episode once again demonstrates that the point of the whole pro-Sheehan media mania had nothing to do with any real sympathy for a bereaved mother, or anything but mindless political trashing of President Bush.

Now that Sheehan has threatened to run against Democrat Nancy Pelosi, she is no longer of use to the American political left. And so she's "outta here."

Carol, you could have a point if the story was true but Sheehan has not been baned from Kos.

Sheehan has a mental problem. She needs care not criticism. The left agenda has not changed. Stalin was beloved by all of the left. Malcolm Muggeridge criticised Stalin, and he got the Sheehan treatment.

So are Republicans who wish to pull out of Iraq traitors and terrorist lovers?
