Two words: Ha Ha. The Democrats encouraged this nonsense to help them take back Congress, so now they have to live with it. To paraphrase fake Indian Ward Churchill, the pink chickens are coming home to roost.
Leaders of the antiwar group Code Pink, frustrated by the ineffectiveness of Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill, yesterday said they are mobilizing a campaign for regime change within the party in the 2008 elections.
The mostly female group — famous for disrupting congressional hearings and its demonstrators clad in pink T-shirts and tiaras — has applied for a new tax status that permits political work for its campaigns against Democrats as well as Republicans, Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin said.
“We felt betrayed by the very people we helped to put into office,” Ms. Benjamin told editors and reporters at The Washington Times. “We have a particular break with the leadership of the Democratic Party.”
The group also plans to take an active role in the presidential race, likely backing Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois or former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, both Democrats.
Code Pink activists have voiced dissatisfaction with Democratic front-runner Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and targeted her with demonstrations. Ms. Benjamin credited her group with influencing Mrs. Clinton’s opposition to the Iraq war and to possible military action against Iran.
Ironically, if Code Pink shows up on the campaign trail to help Obama or Edwards and hurt Clinton, it’ll end up making Clinton look like the sane one.
There’s video at the link of the Pinkos explaining themselves. It’s about as nutty as you’d expect. Their party platform amounts to surrendering the war and “green jobs.”
