Cheerleading is also a bore and a waste of time. In my working life and

Yoshie's queries are legitimate, interesting, and important. Precisely
because Cindy Sheehan has become the overnight icon of the antiwar movement
it's important that we get a good sense of what she believes and how she
operates, not to mention who may be influencing her and to what end.

that Cindy may be listening to the wrong people -- Democratic spinmeisters,
to be precise -- and that as a result she'll end up watering down her
message and tripping over her own inconsistencies.
