Shouldstock site available

Cindy Sheehan’s “Camp Casey” is up for sale on eBay.

Bidding is scheduled to open Monday or Tuesday, with expected bids upwards of $80,000, for land that would normally sell for a fraction of the cost. Reasons for the over-inflation include: that it is close to Bush’s Crawford pseudo-ranch, and that it is the historic site of Sheehan’s protest movement that was based there.

I think that the land would be excellent for an annual concert event, like Willie’s 4th of July Picnic, or Farm Aid, or something.

If I had an extra 100 grand, I’d get in on the bidding. Then again, if I had an extra 100 grand, I probably wouldn’t be a progressive (i.e. liberal) blogger.

Let’s hope that the person who buys it uses it for some virtuous purpose, like an annual tribute to the freedom from oppression enjoyed by Americans before Bush declared his War on Terra. The way it should be.

Cause I would totally take vacation for Shouldstock 2009.
