Anti-Sheehan gun nut's distant cousin offers closer spot for Camp Casey

Well, at least there are some decent people in the Mattlage family.

Protest campsite moving closer to Bush ranch
Relative of man who fired shotgun offers space to antiwar demonstrators


CRAWFORD, Texas - Antiwar protester Cindy Sheehan, whose son was killed in Iraq, is moving her camp closer to President Bush’s Texas ranch.

The piece of private property was offered by a relative of a man who had fired a shotgun in frustration over the protests, a source in the Sheehan camp said. The property owner is also a veteran.

"A neighbor of President Bush’s has offered us his land," the source said. "It’s got plenty of acreage for us, it’s private land, we would have legal permission to be on it, it’s much closer to the ranch — in fact it’s across the street from his (Bush’s) church."

Strategically located near places Bush has to go if he wants to impress his theofascist base, on land being offered to them by the sane relative of a wingnut gunman? Who could resist?

The source said Fred Mattlage made the offer saying "I’m a veteran, I support what you all are doing and I want to offer you my land."

So...what was that about "some vets' families think Sheehan is an evil, terrorist, traitor, Spawn-of-Satan who needs to be shot on sight" again, Bill?
