Firstly, our friends across the pond busted a huge terrorist plot, Iraq was completely pushed to the back burner, President Bush returned to a 33% approval rating, and meanwhile, Cindy Sheehan is having problems:

Anti-war demonstrator Cindy Sheehan was hospitalized Friday evening for dehydration and exhaustion after fasting for more than a month and protesting earlier this week in 100-degree weather, friends and relatives said.

Well see that’s your problem right there. Fasting+hot weather=trip to emergency room. I’m not against Ms. Sheehan’s cause or anything; but fasting…in 100 degree tempatures? Come on.

The Guardian goes on to report:

Sheehan, 49, was hospitalized after friends picked her up Friday afternoon at the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, where she arrived after spending several days in Seattle at the Veterans for Peace convention, said friend Tiffany Burns.

Sheehan, who has been on a liquid diet as part of the nationwide “Troops Home Fast” hunger strike, had been treated and released from a Seattle emergency room Thursday night. On doctors orders, she ate for the first time in about 37 days, Burns said.

37 days! Wow, that’s amazing. Next time she should aim for 40 days!
