Jaw-dropping chutzpah


Sweetness & Light uncovers shamelessness of a rare order on the part of the Cindy Sheehan bus tour pals, Veterans for Peace.

Veterans For Peace, the rabid hate—America group who's impeachment tour Cindy Sheehan glommed on to, has decided to try to milk the Katrina disaster for their own nefarious ends.

The VFP claim they are supporting the Red Cross with power, medical supplies, kitchen services — and even internet communications and trained medical personnel. (Sure they are.)

The VFP then list what they need — which turns out is everything: power, medical supplies, a kitchen, doctors.

Lastly but not leastly, these heroes would like some really really fancy computer and multi—media equipment—to support the Red Cross, doncha know....

S&L then takes a look at the needs budget V4P publishes, and sees what they say they're paying for some of these gadgets:

(5) Apple iMac G5 Computer 20" Monitor = $3,000 each
(5) 500 Gigabyte Firewire Harddrive= $500 each
(5) Canon XL2Digital Video Camera = $4,500 each
(2) Digital Projector (3000 lumens) =$1,000 each
(5) Apple iPods with recording = $600 each

There's much more. Nobody does what S&L does.
