A BUZZFLASH GUEST CONTRIBUTION
by Cindy Sheehan

The democratic blogosphere has predictably lined up against me and must be very frightened because they are repeating the scandalous lies of the right. Wow, the right and left are finding common ground over slandering me. I must be a uniter.

Would someone please remind me when the next Presidential election will be held? I sure don't want to miss it? A genie even told me it's not until November 2008. Can it be that far off? Could have fooled me.

One of the curiosities of life in the freelance scrivener's trade is that you find yourself in the oddest places, writing about the oddest things. Over some 25 years or so, I've taken assignments writing television shows about everything from grizzly bears to defense policy, from Native American history to the bossa nova music of Brazil.
