Her 15 Minutes of Fame... just getting started!

Because she's put out again to the media, with her latest stint in Venezuela and last week's fashion statement, I decided to inject new life into the video I made last November. She wants attention? Fine! She's got it!

I wasn't satisfied with the final edit of the previous version, but was too weary of it to polish off the rough edges, at the time.

Although I expanded the song and made the video longer to cram more in, I think it is in fact, superior to the original (I prefer brevity). I brought some of the sound up in places, and receded it in others, where news video footage was incorporated and mixed in with the song. Added a few other touches, as well.

The end song is probably unecessary, and makes it painfully long; also thematically, the photos are a bit out of place in this video. The mood sorta changes. But I love those pictures at the end, and just didn't want to scrap the music or the images. Plus, I'm now officially exhausted and don't want to do any more editing.

I did my best in crediting the resources I used. Especially for all of the photos. (I may have to re-edit, as I just realized I forgot to credit Defend America for some photos). If you have trouble viewing the size, just double click the embedded video and it will take you directly to the YouTube site. There, you can click the corner of the screen to enlarge it to full size.

If you experience stop-and-go in viewing, try coming back later to it. Sometimes they shut down for maintenance work, also. is not perfect, but beggars can't be choosers.

I'd also like to take the time to thank Bos'un and Flopping Aces for having me as a contributing guest blogger on their respective sites. I will probably cross-post this video at their blogs as well.

The next time you feel like Cindy Sheehan is crawling under your skin, just hop on over here and.....Enjoy.

GREAT JOB!! This video needs to get out.. Do you mind if I share it with some others.. Can I highlight your blog on my blog today and use this? Of course, I have no clue how to get a video on my post.. Let me know. I would title it with your blog title "sparks from the anvil".. Then just post the video and underneath it.. refer people to your site, or something like that? Just an idea.. OR.. I may highlight you as the blogger of the week on friday.. For this fine work..

I'm tired of the Cindy "tool" fool. That woman has some kind of personality disorder or actual brain damage.
Good work!

I came back to say you certainly have been a busy blogger! Some other great posts here. I commented on two or three of the other ones. I've had pc problems and it's hard to visit all the bloggers I have linked. Impossible to do it in one day, unless that's all I get done! :)

democrats leading by 10 to 15 points and yet the reps are getting ready to shoot themselves in the foot by cutting medicare and making tax cuts permanent.

looks like the conservative revolution has either taken a grave setback or is almost over and yet what did it accomplish other than some tax cuts for the wealthy

Thanks, Rebecca. Yes, you may post the video. I'll let you know how.

Hello Angry American. I linked you, and hope that makes you happy. Welcome to the community!

PebblePie and two didn't watch the video now, did you? Shame!

Kyle! I got worried that something happened to you! Glad to see you back and posting off-topic as usual. Every blog should have its pet troll.

No seriously. I've missed you.

Wordsmith, my browser was acting crazy, but I have it fixed, finally. (This is in answer to the comment you left on My Republican Blog.) I can't watch the video as I only have dial-up. It won't track, except for about five seconds at a time, and almost two minutes in between. It would take me forever to watch a video that's almost 10 minutes long. I wish I could watch it.

Clarification however: I never said I wouldn't post comments about Cindy. I said I wouldn't post about her, meaning I wouldn't post about her on my blog! (I still wish I could watch your video. I hate the fact that I can't get anything but a dial-up connection where I'm at!)

The video is AWESOME!! I may link to this post because this is soooo good.

I just don't get Cindy Sheehan. Does she have a brain? How do you trash an honorable man like George W. Bush and hug a murdering dictator like Chavez? Mental illness, possibly? Attention Whore definitely!!

Gayle, darlin' are so dial-up! Get outa there! Go cable! Go DSL!

Can you hop on over to a friend's? You really need to see the vid. You were so kind in your comments on my Helen Thomas post, I thought for sure this would make your day! I had you in mind when I was re-editing.

miss chatterbox....can't respond anymore...commercial break's over (24!).

i moved over to the ex-donkey blog, but i decided i his postings of the women from the 80's are too arousing.

actually on second thought, to post on topic, i don't like cindy sheehan either, she uses inflammatory rhetoric, bush certainly is no prophet jeremiah but he's no fuhrer either

And that's a problem for you? Well, why else do you think I link to him, for? (^_~)

i know i may sound old-fashioned but i still believe fornication is a vice - i realize that makes me an odd democrat but there are only 2 parties out there and you have to choose one

Aaaah....if we could only have more old-fashioned Democrats!

Hey, I've been wondering if you'd like me to link you. I just don't know where to classify you on my blogroll, since you don't run a political blog, as far as I could tell. (Nice writing by the way). And don't tell me to put you under "Crusadists to the Right of Me"!

WS, I'd love to post this video (with a very prominent hat tip to you) on my blog. E-mail me and let me know how, okay?

I loved it, loved it, loved it (Verily, three loved it's are a lot of love!)!

sure i'd be happy if you'd link me and i'll link you - you can refer to me as an unorthodox christian or a moderate democrat - i'll go ahead and link to you as a republican that i like to lock horns with - but this would put an end to contrary statements - i don't enjoy contradicting or debating with people who are nice to me - you attract more bees with honey. i haven't yet put any links on my blog but i've been wanting to for the last three weeks.

by the way - the budget wars are beginning - to believe that deficits don't matter would be too good to be true

nightcrawler...just doubleclick the video, and it will take you to YouTube. Scroll down and you can find the html code. just copy and paste that. All I ask is to be linked back here (or to the other post I made at the top of the page).

Kyle, you are always welcomed to engage in debate here. And no matter how heated it may get, I never come away with bad feelings if you're someone I like.

I just ask that you try to make comments that are directly-related to somewhat-related to the post at hand. I know in natural conversation, comments will eventually tend to stray, as commenters respond to one another. But, a thread should start out on topic.

you attract more bees with honey

Others from the left side of the aisle never seem to stick around as regular commenters to my blog.

I guess I'm going to stick you in with the "bloviating pontificators". The title is tongue-in-cheek, so take it in stride. Some of those listed, I have respect for, and not all are moonbats, but intelligent liberal bloggers.

Thanks for the video! I think this is the first post about Cindy Sheehan that I felt better after.

Thank you for the wonderful piece showing on Moore Watch. I can not tell you how much it means to me as I have 4 family members in the military right now. Please don't stop making such great videos.

That was a very nice "thank you". For which I am moved. God bless your family for its military enlisted. They are loved and appreciated.

As far as more great political vids, I think I'm more like a one-hit wonder. But you never know....

Hell Yea! cindy doesnt know what she is talking about. All she cares is about
her 1 son that was lost and not that thousands that were in world trade centers.
She doesn't realize that the people that died in iraq were people that wanted to
kill her.

AH! I want to be able to download this, so I can watch it all the time. How can I make this happen. Plus I'd like to put it on discs and pass it out at my college. Where can I download it to do this?
