So Cindy Sheehan and three other activists are going on a hunger strike to protest the Iraq War. Their idiotic, self important reason for choosing this method of protest?

"Now it is time to bring the pain and suffering of war home. We are putting our bodies on the line for peace."

Because seeing these assholes really really wanting a cheeseburger is going to illustrate to us the pain of losing a loved one to war. But wait, it gets better:

Other supporters, including Penn, Sarandon, novelist Alice Walker and actor Danny Glover will join a 'rolling" fast, a relay in which 2,700 activists pledge to refuse food for at least 24 hours, and then hand over to a comrade.

How stupid do you have to be to think that not eating for a day means you've done something to help the cause of peace? If these "activists" really want to bring attention to their cause and make some sort of headway then maybe they should come up with something that isn't going to make them look so damn foolish.
