President Bush has been too busy reading and raising money on his vacation to meet with “Peace Mom” Cindy Sheehan, so now the Iraq war protester says she will try to influence members of Congress, starting with the most powerful – and most odious – man in the House, Majority Leader Tom Delay.
“I think our first stop might be Tom DeLay’s office,” [Sheehan] said, surrounded by supporters. “I just wanted to let him know so he’ll be in his office when we get there…”
A spokeswoman for DeLay said his schedule was already set and did not plan to change it to meet with Sheehan.
The DeLay’s spokeswoman then earned her salary by using the Karl Rove-approved spin Republicans are instructed to use when discussing Cindy Sheehan:
“Mr. DeLay disagrees with those who believe we should give the terrorists the timeline they want and simply cut and run from the war in Iraq,” said DeLay spokeswoman Shannon Flaherty.
