Since there aren't any enemy anti-aircraft guns available . . .

. . . Jane Fonda is canceling her wacko bus trip.

You can read my original post about Hanoi Jane's proposed trip here.

According to FoxNews.com,

Why the change of plans? Certainly, Fonda is still very much against the war in Iraq and in favor of helping our troops there. But she said that she didn't want to distract people from Cindy Sheehan's bus trip, which is already under way and gathering support.
Fonda will appear with Galloway — who is vehemently anti-George Bush — in Madison, Wis., on Sept. 18 and in Chicago, Ill., on Sept 19. She told me that "what the right wing has done to Sheehan is despicable."

Her own decision not to stage a bus tour came because she wants Sheehan to succeed without messages being mixed.

"I would be a distraction," she said, "and the vacuum has been filled. That said, I plan to speak out and write some op-ed pieces, but no bus tour."
Sorry, Hanoi Jane, what Cindy Sheehan has done to her son's memory and the sacrifices of all who have died, fighting for freedom, is despicable.

And don't forget that you are despicable too.
