A Hydra

Called Mom.
It is traveling day for Evelyn Allen and Patricia Roberts, two mothers who lost their sons to the war in Iraq.

"We just don't know the truth behind the war," Allen told 11Alive's Jerry Carnes "We're at a standstill. Why is it going on? We want to know why."

Allen is the mother of Jonathan Shields who was 25 when he died in Iraq. Patricia Roberts is the mother of Jamaal Addison, who was killed at the age of 23. The mothers boarded a plane at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, bound for Crawford, Texas. They've joined in a protest there in front of President Bush's Texas ranch, demanding that president Bush end the war.

"I've never heard from the President," said Roberts. "He's never sent his condolences and never acknowledged my son personally, and that's what I ask of him."

Will the wingers slime, smear, and slander Mother Allen and Mother Roberts like they have Mother Sheehan? How many Mothers can Bush's base debase before the wheels fall off the Republican War Machine? I'm betting not many.

One can hope but I suspect the gang of miscreants who support Bush will not relent in their ongoing campaign to smear anyone with the temerity to question him.

The depth of their delusion can be illustrated by the reponse of an aquaintence, a Bush supporter, to the simple truth that Bush is a liar. He said, "Bush does not lie."

These are the people of whom Lincoln was thinking when he made his comment about "some of the people."

There can be no reasoning with them.
