"There really was a political/cultural moment when Sheehan, whose son died in Iraq, was an un-touchable, credible activist. Conservatives who attacked her at the time, like Glenn Beck and Mike Gallagher, were criticized for being so gauche. But Sheehan was adopted into other left-wing causes and the broader left really dumped when she ran a quixotic third party campaign against Nancy Pelosi in 2008. I am not, not, not making a one-to-one comparison here, but there is a lesson for tea party activists who are currently and unquestioningly the toast of the conservative elite and the GOP."
-- Slate.com writer David Weigel in an blog post entitled "So That's It For Cindy Sheehan." He posted video of Sheehan declaring herself a "911 Truther" and claiming that the attacks of September 11 were a government conspiracy.
