code pink: not feeling the love
the hags of code pink are frustrated. their numbers are dropping. their younger activists are leaving them. no one is giving them any attention. and they try so hard! i have blogged about them frequently: here and here and here…
it’s really quite sad. they dress up in nutty clothes so we will all notice them… well, check this out:
These are hard times for peace activists. Despite CodePink’s flashy costumes and willingness to disrupt campaign events and congressional hearings — sometimes facing arrest for it — the women are finding it more difficult to maintain public attention on the Iraq war.
Americans are now focused more on the gasoline prices they’re paying, declining values of their homes and other economic issues. The ups and downs in a highly contested presidential election also have edged Iraq off the front page and evening newscasts most days.
could it also be that we are winning in iraq? for the average code pinko, its really quite depressing!
“We do feel to some extent that these elections have sabotaged our peace actions and messaging because … the media is completely focused on the two candidates,” said CodePink activist Liz Hourican, who moved here from Arizona a year and a half ago to devote her time to ending the war. “It’s a lot more challenging.”
well dang. think about it: victory has all but been finalized in iraq, the country is focusing on the upcoming election, they have simply no presence with all the other anarchists at the dnc convention in denver, and the old pink hags simply look like yesterday’s moonbats.
