You, Too, Can Bid

I saw mention of this on a couple of sites I read and thought I would check it out. It is on EBAY. A speaking engagement with Cindy Sheehan is being auctioned off and the proceeds go to yearlykos - sponsored by the website dailykos. So far the bid is $900.00. With her normal published speaking fee of $12,000 this looks like quite a bargain price.

That Cindy. She's a giver.

There is a mention that they expect "obvious potential for right-wing shenanigans" and she retains the right to refuse to speak to groups not aligned with her. Those right-wingers, they are a surly bunch.

The 2006 YearlyKos convention will be held in Las Vegas at the Riviera Hotal in June, so sign up early to attend. I understand Senator Harry Reid will be the featured headliner. You don't want to miss out on the opportunity to hear Mr. Charisma, now do you?

I don't want to sound rude but Cindy sure could use a good makeover. And a good voice coach, too.

"Laying down your arms, surrendering, saying you are sorry, realizing that you have been on the wrong track and getting ready to start life over again from the ground floor - that is the only way out of a hole". - C.S. Lewis

I would say that if you paid for her to speak and she didn't you could have grounds for a lawsuit. Let the trial attorneys go after someone who needs to be sued for a change.

What we should do is auction her off to say some old tribesman in Nigeria who is looking for a woman to bear his twelve children....
