From the article: “I would like to say to Cindy Sheehan and her supporters, ‘Don’t be a group of unthinking lemmings.’ It’s not pretty,” said Mitzy Kenny of Ridgeley, W.Va., whose husband died in Iraq last year. The anti-war demonstrations “can affect the war in a really negative way. It gives the enemy hope.”

Seems that war is affecting people in really negative ways. Demonstrations give me hope that the American public may, finally, positively influence a policy shift toward a war that was not justifiable.

I'd like to ask Mrs. Kenny who's the lemming here?

As far as I can see Cindy Sheenan's taking a stand in ways that most others haven't been willing to. I'm still concerned about Mrs. Sheenan's tactics and shrillness, but I don't know how you could call her a lemming.

Now for Mrs. Kenny, I could think up some metaphors using 'sheep' and 'slaughter' that might fit her quite well.

Sheehan's arrest made all of a couple of paragraphs on inside page whatever in the liberal Atlanta Journal Constitution this morning. Good for them to recognize this. Sheehan should check out of jail and into a mental facility pronto now that her fifteen minutes has been all used up.
