Bay Guardian Discovers the Real Cindy Sheehan

Dedicated readers (and don’t tell us you’re not) will recall that the Bay Guardian decided to endorse ostensible anti-war activist and confirmed shallow egotist Cindy Sheehan’s congressional race against Nancy Pelosi. They rationalized it as a protest vote, or a way to demonstrate that despite a preponderance of the evidence, they do so have a sense of humor. Now, city editor Steve Jones has discovered that Cindy Sheehan is… a shallow egotist! Jones has learned that Sheehan plans to launch a new radio show on Green 960 AM, a Clear Channel station. Her goal, she apparently wrote, is to use the show to lay the groundwork for her next stab at Pelosi, since the mainstream media so shamelessly ignored her last time around. Jones is so dismayed at Sheehan’s Clear Channel affiliation that he wonders what happened to his gal. “Sheehan’s rhetoric has gotten ridiculous,” he writes. “Rather than selflessly pushing for progressive revolution, it often seems that Sheehan just loves the spotlight.” Welcome to the club, Steve!
