RUSH: Something I told you was going to happen, something I warned you people about. Well, I didn’t warn you about this, but I keyed you to it. “‘Peace mom Cindy’ Sheehan is urging fellow Democrats not to support ‘pro-war Democrat’ Hillary Clinton for president, saying she sounds too much like conservative radio titan Rush Limbaugh in her support for US efforts in Iraq. In an open letter posted on Michael Moore’s website, Sheehan blasts Hillary for backing the Iraq invasion, saying, ‘I think she’s a political animal who believes that she has to be a war hawk to keep up with the big boys.'” Yeah, this is upsettin’ to them on the left. This whole notion that a female presidential candidate has to be hawk, has to be a big talker on the military to prove that she’s qualified to wield power with the men.
“Sheehan says that ‘unless Hillary shows us the wisdom it takes to be a truly great leader and backs a pullout from Iraq,’ she will resist her candidacy with every bit of her power and strength. ‘I will not make the mistake of supporting another pro-war Democrat for president again,’ vowed mother Sheehan. Sheehan said that she thought her meeting with the New York Democrat earlier this month had gone well, until she found out that Mrs. Clinton had dismissed her advice afterwards. Citing Hillary’s comments to the Village Voice that a pullout would mean US troops had died in vain, Sheehan said, ‘Well, that sounds like Rush Limbaugh to me. That doesn’t sound like an opposition party leader speaking to me. What Senator Clinton said after our meeting sounds exactly like the Republican Party talking points that I heard from Senators Dole and McCain.'”
So! I told you, folks, that there’s trouble in paradise out there on the far left extreme — which has become the Democrat base. (interruption) That’s a good point. Mr. Snerdley says, “This is twice that she’s gone face-to-face with Hillary,” and she did sort of get smacked down the last time. You know, you don’t do this, folks. You don’t publicly, as a Democrat disavow a Clinton and live to do it again. Well, you just don’t do it again and again without something happening — and so she’s one gutsy lady or stupid lady. One of the two, but something is going to happen to this woman. Something’s going to silence her. Somebody is going to call her from the Clinton campaign and say, “You really want to keep talking like this, Mother Sheehan? Does the name Andrew Cuomo mean anything to you? Bob Torricelli?” Any number of examples could be cited.
