Let Tbogg speak for himself:
The pro-Bush caravan was coordinated by Move America Forward, a group led by former California Assemblyman Howard Kaloogian and Republican strategist Sal Russo.
Organizer Howard Kaloogian accused Sheehan of "giving hope and encouragement to our enemies."
The crowd, which organizers said topped 3,000 but appeared closer to 1,500, chanted "Cindy, Go Home" and compared her to Jane Fonda, whose visit to a North Vietnamese gun site in 1972 earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."
"Cindy-Hanoi Jane," read one of the signs at the rally.
In one heated moment, members of the pro-Bush crowd turned on what they mistakenly thought were a group of anti-war protesters, cursing them, threatening them and tearing down their signs. A police officer rushed the group to safety.
Um. That would be Move America Forward kicking The Protest Warriors asses.Read the whole thing. Hilarious. (Tbogg)
