Oh, They're Serious Now: A Rolling Fast

Several celebrity-types have now pledged to go on a "rolling fast", to demonstrate thier opposition to the war in Iraq. I know, you're thinking, "GreatMoose, what in the name of Thor's blessed undies is a 'rolling fast?'" Well, allow the GreatMoose to illuminate you. A rolling fast is when one member fast for 24 hours and then 'passes' the fast on to the next person. Like a relay. . Are you not IMPRESSED?! Stand amazed at thier resolve! 24 WHOLE HOURS without eating! How can we as conservatives stand against this kind of dedication and clear-headedness? Truly, we have underestimated our foes.

Other supporters, including [Sean 'Baghdad'] Penn, [Susan 'What Career'] Sarandon, novelist Alice Walker and actor[?] Danny [Who?] 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.

This is also known as the "Saddam Fast", as it was created by the once great President of Iraq, Saddam Hussein.

Glenn Beck had a great idea this morning;
if "Mother Sheehan" brings her rolling fasters to Crawford this summer, he proposed that the Conservative opposition set up a bar-b-que pit opposite her fasting site. Maybe set up giant fans that would blow the aroma toward her... If she wants to fast for peace, then we can eat for Freedom. I volunteer to rent the fans...
