Is she joking?

Cindy Sheehan, on Huff Puff and MichaelMoore.com, via Drudge:

It is a Christ-like principle to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and shelter the homeless. That's what is happening in Algiers and other places in Louisiana...but by the people of America, not the so-called "Christians" in charge. If George Bush truly listened to God and read the words of the Christ, Iraq and the devastation in New Orleans would have never happened.
Is she serious? So if President Bush were really a Christian, a natural disaster named Hurricane Katrina would not have hit New Orleans? And New Orleans wouldn't have been flooded, even though it is surrounded by water in the form of the Gulf, the Mississippi River, and Lake Pontchartrain? Does she realize New Orleans is below sea level? Or does she live in another universe?

I don't care if a human being is black, brown, white, yellow or pink. I don't care if a human being is Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, or pagan. I don't care what flag a person salutes: if a human being is hungry, then it is up to another human being to feed him/her. George Bush needs to stop talking, admit the mistakes of his all around failed administration, pull our troops out of occupied New Orleans and Iraq, and excuse his self from power. The only way America will become more secure is if we have a new administration that cares about Americans even if they don't fall into the top two percent of the wealthiest.
The federal government has already spent an incredible amount of money on the victims of Hurricane Katrina: food, water, rescues, medicine, transportation, reimbursement for others. How much should the government spend, Cindy?

You are right, Cindy. If a human being is hungry, then it is right that another human being feeds him, but the federal government is not a human being. American citizens have a Christian duty to help their brother in need. The government should not be doling out money.

And we are occupying New Orleans??????? Wasn't the Left just complaining that the military didn't get into New Orleans fast enough? What do they want????

And President Bush should "excuse his self from power"? Shouldn't that be "himself"?

There has not been a terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, since the President sent the military out to defend and protect us in Afghanistan and Iraq, Cindy. We are more secure than when Bill Clinton was in office (and declined to take Osama bin Laden when he had the chance). We are more secure than we were on 9/10/01. That is due to the fact that President Bush is proactive and doesn't wait for the terrorists to come to our doors. He has the military out killing as many of the evil little cowards you like so much as possible: in Afghanistan AND Iraq. Incidentally, you don't believe the war in Afghanistan is a right, either, so how do you suggest we become more secure?

The military is protecting all Americans, not just the wealthiest 2%. All Americans, regardless if "if a human being is black, brown, white, yellow or pink" or "Christian, Muslim, Jew, Buddhist, or pagan." Cindy, you insult the brave men and women of the military when you say they are only out there to protect the rich. Incidentally, many of the wealthy are your leftist buddies like George Soros and Michael Moore.

Someone get her some meds!
