Hollywood Joins Sheehan's Hunger Strike

They had their 'last meal' yesterday in front of the White House. If only 'last meal' were literal...

It seems Sheehan's pledge to stop eating from now until the beginning of September has also been adopted by Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Willie Nelson and the Reverend Al Sharpton. Of course, they are doing a "rolling fast" which means you only have a to fast for a meal or so as the fast "rolls across America" --I guess reminiscent of Hands Across America. ...Is it me, or is that not much of a sacrifice from people who claim they really believe this war has been perpetrated on a lie?

"Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan began a hunger strike on Tuesday – and Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn and other stars are joining her in her "Troops Home Fast" protest.

...So far, more than 3,000 people from the U.S. and 18 other countries have signed up to join the fast.

Some, like Diane Wilson, co-founder of the Code Pink: Women for Peace and organizer of the hunger strike, are giving up food entirely until the troops come home. "I've done a number of hunger strikes, and this is the biggest already and it just started yesterday," Wilson tells PEOPLE." (source)

Here are some pictures from the 'last supper'...

And Wizbang nailed it on the head with his post title: Cindy Sheehan is Starving for Attention --Literally
