Headline on WorldNetDaily:
'Left of left' in Congress writes Bush on Sheehan
John Conyers, Barbara Lee plus 3 dozen Democrats urge president to meet CindyAmong other well-known names who co-signed the letter are Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, Jerrold Nadler of New York, and Barbara Lee and Maxine Waters of California.
John Conyers: "The president has been filmed bicycling around the neighborhood and he has personally attested to spending time fishing and attending little-league baseball games. ... Keep in mind, also, that White House press secretary Scott McClellan recently proclaimed about the president's vacation in Crawford, that 'Spending time outside Washington gives the president a fresh perspective of what's on the minds of the American people. It's a time, really, for him to shed the coat and tie and meet with folks out in the heartland and hear what's on their minds.' Possibly, you may have to actually talk to people to find out what's on their mind."
Not a bad article. There are some good links in it too. When I first saw the headline I expected there would be some lefty bashing but I think it makes those "Left of Left" look downright admirable. Perhaps some of the lefty values are finally becoming the mainstream values and attempts at defining derogatory labels such as "Left" or even "Liberal" will be seen for the hateful propaganda they are.
