Code Pink Hotties for the Revolution!

I never thought I'd be "Rule 5" blogging on Code Pink anti-Americans, but there's a first for everything. Via Ace of Spades HQ and Blackfive, check out "Code Pink Cuties":

More seriously, This Ain't Hell reports on the "ANSWER March on the Pentagon."

The photo-essay includes a banner hoisted by the
Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) that reads "TROOPS OUT NOW ... NO WAR BUT CLASS WAR ... OUT ENEMY IS AT HOME" ...

The PSL website boasts Che Guevara across the top banner, and the page features links to upcoming events, such as "
SOCIALISM: THE TIME IS NOW - CONFERENCE AND WORKSHOP," in Los Angeles, scheduled for April 25. Some of the PSL links for today's Pentagon protest are hosted at ANSWER's website, and the group also mounted a demonstration in Los Angeles this afternoon. Here's the list of sponsors:

The Los Angeles Times provided the group media coverage for the event, with a map listing road closures adjacent to Hollywood and Vine. Here's a description of the scheduled events:

Protesters will stop in front of the Kodak Theatre and participate in a 10-minute "die-in," where demonstrators will lie on the street as loudspeakers blare the sounds of dropping bombs. Marchers will then carry coffins draped with the U.S., Iraqi, Afghan and Palestinian flags toward an armed forces recruitment office at Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue. The march will finish off with a short rally about 3:30 p.m. there.

As much as I squinted at the list of loons & fellow-travelers, I couldn't descry James Earl Carter's name among the lemming-list. Is Jimmy on sabbatical from acting silly in public?

Maybe Code Pink should consider lining up with ACORN to widen the "muscle for money" scams with the rent-a-mob that Obama used to do legal work for.

Funny that the Left Angeles Times has extensive coverage of this event but totally ignored 3-15,000 Californians at an anti-tax rally in Fullerton two Saturdays ago. EVERY other newspaper in the area had coverage of the rally. Oh, and the leaders of the protest, radio talkers John & Ken (on KFI and NOT in any way my favorites) got a rip the following week in a "story" of the "wane of conservative talkradio" in California. No, the wane is on the Left Angeles Times. They can not die fast enough!

Wow! That's some list. Most of the usual suspects will be there. If they really believe in their cause then they would leave this country, but being every bit the hypocrites they are, they choose to bask under a free system that lets them practice their stupidity.

BTW, that professor who works for ANSWER; is that even legal (besides unethical)?
