Who is it about really?

Allahpundit at Hotair:
Bronze Star, V for Valor. [Casey Sheehan] Killed after volunteering to be part of a Quick Reaction Force sent in to rescue U.S. troops under fire from Muqtada al-Sadr's goon squad. Here's his Wikipedia page. And here's mom's, which is a good three to four times as long.
Hmm, American hero gets a couple pages of coverage, while his mother gets nearly an entire chapter. Early on, Miss Sheehan tried to emphasize that her campaign was for her deceased son, but if that were truly the case, shouldn't resources have a lot more to say about her son who died in an "unjust war". Cindy Sheehan is simply clinging to her fifteen minutes now; this was never about her son but only a way to give Cindy a platform. She could not even be bothered to get a headstone for her son's grave until recently. It is a true shame that she would abuse her son's name like this.
