Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has made a big deal about her recently launched fast to bring the troops home. But with Cindy and her gang it looks like they are re-defining the meaning of a fast.
I checked out the CodePink web site today and found some curious items. In case of rain they will gather at the Cosi restaurant. Maybe they will be in front of the restaurant, but unless it’s public property they may actually need to patronize the sandwich and soup shop. Then on July 13th they are slated to have a breakfast meeting with Senators Dick Durbin and Barack Obama. Finally the site states that they will be publicly fasting from 10 am to 7 pm.
With a fast like this supporters sure aren’t sacrificing much and are under no threat to starve.
As someone who fasts once a month for religious purposes and goes without food or water for 24 hours to call this anti-war activity a fast is an outright lie. But then again look who we are dealing with.
