Video: Code Pink's anti-war ad

Utterly predictable after the first second or so. You can’t expect profundity in half a minute, but a little originality would be welcome; what you’re getting here instead is the thousandth iteration of a meme that’s been popular in anti-war thinking since toy soldiers were invented. Presumably it’s simply a commentary on Bush being cavalier about troop deaths, although with Mother Sheehan’s outfit you never know — they may mean to imply he’s actually getting his jollies from all the fighting.

No need to overanalyze, though. Just sit back and enjoy a scolding about the gravity of the war debate from a group best known for its media whoring and costumery.

P.S. Does this cover Afghanistan, too?
