"AUDIO EXCLUSIVE: Cindy Sheehan Responds To Right Wing Smear"

The right-wing may be on the attack, but Cindy Sheehan’s voice won’t be silenced. She appeared on the Bill Press Show (with Christy Harvey) this morning to continue speaking truth to power. Here’s Cindy Sheehan, in her own words —

One of the more underhanded smears launched by the right wing came when Michelle Malkin said she didn’t think Casey Sheehan, Cindy’s son killed in Iraq, would approve of what his mom was doing. This morning Sheehan responded:

“I didn’t know Casey knew Michelle Malkin…I’m Casey’s mother and I knew him better than anybody else in the world…I can’t bring Casey back, but I wonder how often Michelle Malkin sobbed on his grave. Did she go to his funeral? Did she sit up with him when he was sick when he was a baby?” LISTEN TO CINDY

Cindy also is standing tough against the rest of the radical right mouthpieces, calling Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Matt Drudge “despicable”:

“[They don’t have skin in the game. They don’t have anybody over there. They don’t have sleepless nights worried about their loved ones.” LISTEN TO CINDY

Note to White House: Cindy Sheehan’s not giving up. You can listen to the rest of this morning’s interview HERE.
