Code Pink Socks It To Bush With Shoe Protest

It was only a matter of time before Bush's opponents at home took advantage of last weekend's shoe attack to highlight their frustration with the President. Code Pink, the infamous group of women for peace, gathered outside the White House and in Berkeley, CA yesterday to hold a "Farewell Kiss Shoe-In" for President Bush.

Just like the Iraqis, who gathered in the streets carrying shoes to show their solidarity with the jailed journalists, the women of Code Pink picked up, or untied, the latest symbol of dissent. One member explained the group's motivation:

"It's outrageous that al-Zaidi could get two years in prison for insulting George Bush, when Bush is directly responsible for the deaths of 1.5 million Iraqis and 4,200 U.S. troops, and 5 million displaced Iraqis. The one who should be in jail is George Bush, and he should be charged with war crimes."

While the shoe demonstration could be seen as a little predictable, perhaps Bush only invited it when he said about his attacker, "I don't know what the guy's cause is." With banners dedicating shoes to the "widows, orphans and those killed in Iraq," Code Pink offered Bush an explanation. Check out the pics from the White House protest.

"Is no one in control of themselves anymore... are we all free to give into our personal rage and disappointment because we don't like our President?" Rage at injustice and possible criminal behavior by a president is not ego, it is the duty of citizens to voice our concerns about what is done in our names.

diadem- Great. Code Pink just drives me batty. They all seem so self-grandizing, but I pretty much disagree with them all the time so I *might* be biased. Am I offbase to think of these women as self-aggrandizing? I feel like if they were really interested in changing the world they would get involved in a practical way. A very judgemental part of me thinks that their main goal in life is to get on TV.

Kranky, they always have been. Remember the Clinton impeachment and adultery stuff.

I am amazed at the round-about justifications that people give for acting like idiots these days. Is no one in control of themselves anymore... are we all free to give into our personal rage and disappointment because we don't like our President? Were people always this egotistical, or I am just now noticing?

In my dream, there is a giant watercooler, but it's filled with milk. But it didn't taste like milk.And there's this giant mosquito who is trying to get to the milk. So, I drink the milk, but my teeth started to fall out, which was unexpected. And Dave was there, but he didn't look like Dave, and that was freaking me out.
