I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Pelosi Plays Hardball with Code Pink


One has to feel sorry for the nit wits who thought the Democrats spoke out against the War on Terror because they don't think war will stop the terror only to find the Dems only oppose it when they perceive political advantage.

Four members of the anti-war group Code Pink were arrested outside the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Thursday afternoon, following an announcement that they would seek to take over the office.

The group's members had planned to hold a symbolic "Pin the war on the Donkey" demonstration at Pelosi's office to show their frustration with the Democratic leadership's inaction on ending the war in Iraq.

However, Capitol Police prevented the taping of a drawn donkey to the wall.

Code Pink members were crying outside Pelosi's office. When asked why, Rae Abileah, 24, said she was crying out of "outrage that this is all we can get from the Democrats," referring to the Iraq supplemental funding bill, scheduled for a vote Friday.

"We're just heartbroken that Nancy Pelosi has decided to keep funding George Bush's war, and now the war belongs to the Democrats as well as the Republicans," said Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin. "We thought we were going to get a change when they came into power."


Then again, I'm more amused than sorry.
