The Universe Works In Mysterious Ways
I've stayed off the Sheehan thing because I think other people are doing a better job than I could hope to. This new development, however, really sticks in my craw.
The Sheehan camp is moving closer to Bush's ranch, offered a spot on the property of one of the President's neighbors—in fact, a relative of the guy who fired shots into the air the other day.
So what does Ms. Sheehan have to say about this? Simple:
This just shows me that the universe is blessing our efforts out here at Camp Casey.Really? The universe is behind you because someone who supports your efforts happens to live nearby? So what was the universe trying to tell you when his relative fired his gun into the air and put up multiple "no parking" and "no trespassing" signs along his property? He was acting contrary to the desires of the universe, right?
The woman is entitled to her views, as are the people who are manipulating her. But to claim that the universe is behind them (aside from sounding an awful lot like hippy bullshit—and remarkably similar to the rhetoric of the Bible-thumping bigots that the Michael Moores of the world hate so much) is simply absurd.
