A Cindy Sheehan article worth reading (before she withers away)

I really enjoy reading articles where the author has the guts to question someone's core motivations and/or mental state. Even if the author is wrong, it is typically entertaining to read someone who is exploring what makes someone tick.

Michael Reagan rips out the Freud to postulate that Cindy Sheehan's real enemy is her own self.

Sigmund Freud had a concept he called “projection, which has been defined as a defense where the ego deals with unacceptable impulses and/or terrifying anxieties by attributing them to someone in the external world.

In many ways I think that explains the behavior of the media’s current patron saint, Cindy Sheehan, whose hate rhetoric aimed at President Bush is really meant for someone else who she can’t admit even to herself is her real target. To do so would represent one of those “unacceptable impulses” Dr. Freud was talking about.

Such is clear by her body language and mystically-laced rhetoric alone. She repeats her anti-freedom socialist mantras (e.g. in the same manner a religious nut carries on about accepting the glory of Jesus or Allah into our lives) to a willing press corp.

The media can only hide Sheehan's absurd leftism for so long before most Americans realize what she is up to - and why. If this is the best they can do - let us rejoice and be glad!
