Updated: Meanwhile, Right Wingers continue to call Sheehan a "Crackpot"

(Reuters) A pickup truck ran over wooden crosses erected at anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan's campsite on Monday night, in the latest sign of tension over the peace vigil outside vacationing President George W. Bush's Texas ranch.

Larry Northern, 46, of nearby Waco, Texas, was arrested and charged with criminal mischief in connection with the incident, Crawford Police Chief Donnie Tidmore said.

Sheehan has pitched a tent on Prairie Chapel Road, which leads to Bush's ranch, and calls her site "Camp Casey," after her 24-year-old son, who was killed in combat in Iraq in April 2004.

The small, white wooden crosses erected at the site are hand-painted with the names of soldiers killed in Iraq.

Sheehan, of Vacaville, California, has demanded a meeting with Bush at which she said she wants to call for the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq.

While Bush has expressed sympathy for Sheehan's grief, the White House has declined a meeting. Sheehan previously met with Bush in 2004 but wants another meeting.

Michelle Mulkey, a spokeswoman for Sheehan, said protesters were still awake on Monday night when a truck dragging a pipe and chains drove over a portion of the area where the crosses were standing.

(CNN) -- Anti-war protesters outside President Bush's ranch here were startled Sunday by gunshots fired by a Texas rancher frustrated by the group's presence.

"Well, I'm getting ready for dove season," Larry Mattlage, 62, told reporters of the shots fired around 10 a.m. (noon EDT). Asked if there was an underlying message to the shots, which he fired harmlessly into the air, Mattlage told a reporter, "Figure it out for yourself."

Crackpot #4, Rush Limbaugh

(Media Matters) Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh equated the actions of Cindy Sheehan, the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq, with those of Bill Burkett, the retired Texas Air National Guard officer who provided CBS' 60 Minutes with unauthenticated documents regarding President Bush's National Guard record. Sheehan is currently staging an anti-war protest outside Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas. Limbaugh said that Sheehan's "story is nothing more than forged documents."

What does everyone expect? It's Texas, the nutjob
state of the union. And Fox News' take on the whole thing makes one embarrassed to be an American!

Just checked out that article plus some of the other anti-Jewish hysteria on his site. What's with the "European-American" shit? I wonder if that includes Mediterranean Europeans...Italians, Spaniards, Greeks, Greeks, etc...you know, the one's that are not so "white" (like myself). Who takes him seriously anyway?

Just another asshole no different from other "pundits" with assinine theories about the world.

It is pretty damn funny though....

David Duke bandwagons everybody, mns. Get a fucking grip.

Bush is too much of a pussy to have served in Vietnam, too much of a pussy to send his own children to die in Iraq, and too much of a pussy to work 12 months of the year. His neighbors should shoot him and do us all a favor.

David Duke agrees with Cindy Sheehan. Careful which side of the fence you put yourself on in your attempt to be self-righteous, racists.

these "crackpot" stories are so classic...fucking shotguns and pickup trucks!! They're so stereotypical of themselves it's hilarious. Middle America is a very scary place.

Also,

To crackpot #1: What kind of grown man gets his jollies out of runnin' over shit with a truck?? You're 46 years old!! That's the kind of shit that idiot 16 year olds do. Are you going to go out and smash some mailboxes later?? Maybe blow up your GI Joes with firecrackers?

It's always funny how these flag-wavin' fucks who sing God-bless America are always so threatened by freedom of expression (or in this case, freedom to protest), which is a major foundation of this country. There a few things that are more uniquely American, so why are these "patriots" and "freedom lovers" so hell-bent on trying to thwart this poor women's inalienable right?

Right Wing Crackpots vs Left Wing Crackpots. This is highly entertaining! I think it's great that the elite in this country can always manage to get the average folk to go at each other's throats. "Let them fight each other while we run off with everything without them noticing." Brilliant strategy, don't you think?

I thought he said "DUCK" season, not "Dove."
