#rsrh The Code Pink Glitter Harpies sparkle at Tim Pawlenty.

I wouldn’t have bothered to put this up – short version; CodePink threw glitter at Tim Pawlenty because Pawlenty opposes same-sex marriage.  Speaking as a supporter of same-sex marriage, I personally don’t care overmuch one way or the other about empty gestures like these, but having CodePink join the cause… well, let me put it this way…

[pause]

Actually, let me not.  That might have earned me a libel suit.  Suffice it to say, I’m not a fan.

Anyway, Jim Geraghty had a good line:

During the Bush years, no administration official or Pentagon official could finish a sentence of testimony on Capitol Hill without some aged activist whose physique strangely suggested a great deal of inactivism leaping out of her chair and screaming some incoherent chant as a tired Capitol Police officer dragged them away, oh so slowly.

Which reminded me of a bumper sticker that I saw yesterday: the ‘classic’ “It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.”  Given the way that the Obama administration – who the bumper sticker owner proudly voted for, judging from the other bumper stickers* –  has gutted school choice and expanded our war footprint, it’s a good thing that irony isn’t actually a living thing; these days, it’d be on the Endangered Species List.

PS: One of these days, somebody is going to taser a CodePinker for pulling stunts like this.  Given the anthrax scares of the previous decade, I’m kind of surprised that nobody has, yet…

*Twenty or so.  Yes.  One of those.

    I thought Code Pink was anti-war?

  • civil truth says:

    What this just proves is that Code Pink has given up any pretext of being a principled anti-war group, demonstrating rather that they are not really anti-war, just anti-Republican, thereby undeniably outing themselves as just another wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic party. They’ve made their bed, they’ll have to lie in it.

    It’s a sad day when Cindy Sheehan is the most principled anti-war protestor left on the left.

    It was a Prius, too, wasn’t it? I think I’ve seen that car too.
