Lone Star nutter launches Operation Cross Stomper... mows down memorial to fallen.
Some 800 white wooden crosses, bearing the names of soldiers killed in Iraq like her son, have lined the road near the area where Sheehan has pitched a tent. Witnesses said they saw a truck dragging a pipe and chains drive over some of the crosses on Monday night.
Charles Anderson, a 28-year-old Iraq war veteran from Virginia Beach, Virginia, called the vandalism of the crosses a "sacrilege."
"These crosses represent five of my comrades in my battalion who are no longer with us," he said at a news conference with Sheehan. ~ Reuters/alertnet.org
Larry Northern: winner of the "Jackboot Jollies" criminal mischief achievement badge for distempered loco-motion in a shiny moving object:
Larry Northern, 59, of McLennan County, was charged Tuesday with Criminal Mischief Over $1,500 and under $20,000 after a pickup truck tore through a row of white crosses erected by anti-war protesters gathered near the President’s ranch in Crawford.
Bail was set at $3,000. Northern later posted bond and was released.
The crosses bear the names of U.S. military personnel who have died in the war in Iraq.
Witnesses said the driver swerved the truck in and out of the makeshift memorial Monday night. ~ KWTX/tv
Let's all congratulate cross stomper Larry for his brave show of manly force in the face of a defenseless makeshift memorial standing beside a ditch. The Taliban didn't care much for crosses either. Or women who dare to question the motives and decisions of the Dear Mullah. They were plenty fond of pick-up trucks though. As I recall they had all kinds of boing-eyed god-fearin' fun raising holy rolling hell in pick-up trucks.
And speaking of congratulations, and so forth, John archy McKay is offering fabulous prizes (which could be just about anything fabulous as you might imagine) to anyone who can report on a variety of such congratulatory tidings and or rationalizations offered in the form of three arguments (from the usual clangor horns) in defense of Larry's wild hair up his ass ride:
We know that in a very short while Malkin, O'Rielly, Coulter, and the freepers will have beatified Northern, so I'm offering fabulous prizes to the first readers who can find examples of each three of these arguments in use, to [the] first to find all three, and to anyone who can find all three being used by the same person. Special honorable mentions go to anyone who finds any other particularly outrageous defenses of Northern's action.
UPDATEThe winning entries are rolling in.... find out what the Freepies are saying...hurry: Fabulous contest update.
Likewise, according to high placed senior sources close to the source, I've come to understand that the flyblow from Waco will be awarded a specially designed Freeperkorps "Dove-n-Cross Smiter"* drive-by desecration badge in honor of loony Larry's hit and run heroics. A snappy fully extended arm-length salute is in order.
Larry can show off his new gee-gaw to his pals at the: LT Dillon Gun Club: (click "hall of fame" link and scroll down).
And that concludes the Cult of the 'W' man-child tantrum award presentation for August 17, 2005. Congratulations to Larry Northern...a real credit to his flag.

That should confuse the Freepers - (see "Fabulous contest update" link above) - at least for a few days. (Larry Mattlage was the guy with the excitable talking shotgun.)
