Thank You, Code Pink, For Stopping The Attack On Syria

Updated Update: OK, got the video working! It’s right after the jump! Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher sent us a tip with some exclusive video of a Code Pink protest across the street from the White House today while Barry Bamz met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. As is their trademark, they were not especially polite: Code Pinkers in giant Obama and Netanyahu heads pattered about mongering war, and engaged in various sexual simulations whenever they sensed a camera. Code Pink founder Madea Benjamin was also on hand to take credit for Syria’s agreement to give up its chemical weapons. Because as everyone knows, where diplomacy, moral suasion, or threats of force fail, people dancing around in big papier-mâché caricature heads usually get results.

Texas State Legislature Declares War On Feminine Hygiene Products While Debating Ladyparts Regulation Bill

By now you have probably read about the Great TAMPONGHAZI!!!! at the Texas capitol building in Austin Friday. While the state senate went through their little Kabuki theater to pass a bill with stringent restrictions on abortion, everybody entering the gallery to watch the performance got searched for contraband tampons by officers of the Department of Public Safety. Yr Wonkette has been mildly hard at work sifting through all the conflicting reports of what exactly went down. Join us as we ask ourselves “What in the everloving fuck?” Will there also be <headdesking>? Probably! You’ll just have to join us after the jump!

Gitmo To Stay Open, Guaranteeing More Hilarity From Madea

‘Twas a mere four weeks ago when El Jefe Obama gave a speech about drones or something and nobody was really listening until Tyler Perry showed up and yelled at the prez about how he should close the prison at Guantanamo with his magic presidenting powers and Barry actually said that her point of view is important to listen to, and we thought that was cool of him even though Tyler Perry was being rude, and also that those of us who pay attention (yes purity trolls, we do pay attention) know that Congress is the group that has to close Gitmo. The administration can cajole and demand and twist John Boehner’s balls until he turns a darker shade of orange (if there even is a darker shade of orange) but look at how willing the Republican-led House has been to work with the president on anything. Bamz could propose renaming Washington D.C. to the Ronald Reagan Shining City on a Hill and the wingnuts would piss on him. We missed a follow-up on the issue a few days ago. What can we say?

Madea Heckles The President

Were you, like us, not really watching the Prezzy’s speech about drones or Gitmo or whatever because BoRING, but it was on in the background because, fuck we don’t even know why? We guess it is sort of glancingly our “job” but screw that. Well, perhaps Angry Hulk Obama made some news in there (who even knows, Twitter said it was like a declassification jamboree?), but since there was no buttsechs or hot pix of his busty white prom date, WHO CARES? Well, Medea Benjamin, of Code Pink, still cares, and she ninja’d her way into the speech and she heckled and heckled and heckled and heckled and heckled and heckled and … and then after about five minutes of yelling, she … got to yell some more!

Joe ‘You Lie!’ Wilson Books Flight To Israel To Have Fun Debate With American President, Apparently

Israel’s most hated enemy/most Jewishest president yet Barack Obama is in the Holy Land today, and somebody went all Code Pink on him (we assume; the protester must have been an anti-drone civil libertarian, right? Right? Because conservatives all have impeccable manners and Respect for the Office of the Presidency and would never be so vulgar). What is weird about this video is that the audience did not drown out the heckler by chanting USA! USA! which is obviously how you drown out a heckler. Instead, they just drowned him out by clapping. Lame, Israel. Whatever. OH WAIT, that is the wrong video, we regret the error. Read more on Joe ‘You Lie!’ Wilson Books Flight To Israel To Have Fun Debate With American President, Apparently…

NRA Literally Blows Nation’s Head Off; Midwest Has Sucking Chest Wound

In a bizarre “press conference” that permitted no questions, National Rifle Association executive vice president Wayne LaPierre declined to offer the sort of small but sensible concession that many idiots like your Editrix expected in the wake of the Newtown massacre — offering to compromise on the gun show loophole for background checks, for instance, or maybe something about okay fine maybe we don’t need hollow-point bullets — and instead declared #war on gun-free zones at elementary schools, celebrities, the Legend of Zelda, the lack of a national registry of the mentally ill, and probably single mothers and Easy Bake ovens, we don’t know because at some point his words smashed through our brains and splattered them all over our monitor. It is very messy. Read more on NRA Literally Blows Nation’s Head Off; Midwest Has Sucking Chest Wound…

Glitter Bomb Strikes Tim Pawlenty At Book Signing

GOP presidential candidate and gay marriage opponent Tim something-or-other was unwisely lurking around signing books in known homosexual watering hole San Francisco when he was, as the kids say, “glitter-bombed.” Code Pink activists dumped an envelope of pink glitter on Pawlenty and yelled at him. Previously, helmet-haired balloon-head human Newt Gingrich had the special privilege of being the candidate progressives most loved to cover in sparkles. Iraqis throw shoes, gays throw glitter. Anyway, here is your next dark horse sour-faced GOP presidential candidate having glitter thrown at him: Read more on Glitter Bomb Strikes Tim Pawlenty At Book Signing…
  disapproval disapproved

OH LOOK SOMEONE FROM CODE PINK DID SOMETHING THEATRICAL AND IRRITATING, WHAT A SURPRISE: Alaska-based oil monster Lisa Murkowski had her “resolution of disapproval” (is this a real thing with legal implications, or just a thing Murkowski made up to sound mean?) to stop the EPA from regulating carbon dioxide voted down by the Senate, ha ha. Why did the Senate plutocrats suddenly turn against their oil-spewing masters? Was it because some Code Pink lady got arrested for pouring fake oil on herself during the hearing? Sure, let’s say yes. Everyone, go down to the Gulf Coast immediately and wipe up the spilled oil with your flesh, it will cause all of Lisa Murkowski’s resolutions to be voted down. [NYT/Democracy Now] Read more on …

Karl Rove Fights, Loses To Hippies, In Beverly Hills

Fancy book-author Karl Rove went to Beverly Hills last night to take questions about his very very gay dad. But then Code Pink showed up to make a citizen’s arrest, and Karl had no security! Was he able to beat up these ladies good? Also, someone brings up the Downing Street Memo, which Rove calls a fabrication — just like in 2005! Who goes to these things?

Grumpus McCain Tosses Out Another Heckler

John McCain is not having an easy time at these Town Hall Death Panels. A few days ago he got booed for suggesting that former Constitutional law professor Barack Obama is familiar with the Constitution; and then last night he got hassled by one of those irritating Code Pink broads. So he THREW HER OUT, bodily. Read more on Grumpus McCain Tosses Out Another Heckler…

Barney Frank Snaps At Code Pink Multiple Times During Important Money Hearing

Here’s your “Tuesday Lunch Video,” hooray! During today’s House Financial Services Committee hearings with archvillains Ben Bernanke and Tim Geithner, Barney Frank interrupted each of them to admonish the daring Code Pink protesters in the room, who came with their usual cardboard signs and cat calls and what not. He told them to “grow up” because they were NOT HELPING THE BANKS with this behavior. More importantly, the CNN chyron brings us a crucial “UPDATE” during this clip: “Meghan McCain: ‘I support the president.'” So she’s a communist now, too.

Best Leftist Protest Idea Ever: Throw Shoes At Dana Milbank

The Code Pink liberals held their “throw shoes at Bush” reenactment yesterday, yay. A small but dedicated crowd went and threw shoes at a plaster Bush zombie. But then something far worse appeared, from the “neo-liberal” Washington Post newspaper: DANA MILBANK, with a cameraman, reporting on the fun for his next grating “local color” column. It’s hard to express how smug Dana Milbank is in this video, even by his standards. Don’t torture yourself! Just skip to the end when the Pinks start throwing shoes at Milbank instead, until he starts whining.

Shoe-Throwing Becomes Leftist Protest Du Jour

Alaskan Ladies Are Sexist Over Their Own Lady Governor Lady

That Alaska blog that all of the hipsters are reading now has pictures from the Alaska Women Reject Palin protest in Anchorage this weekend, which the blogger claims was “the biggest political rally ever, in the history of the state.” It looks like Code Pink flew some folks in, given the high percentage of “filthy hippie” action we’re seeing in these photos.

These People Do Not Like War, In Denver

On our 17-mile march from downtown Denver to “The Perimeter,” which is a police blockade at least another 17 miles from the actual Pepsi Center, we ran into these friends. Thousands of riot cops, thousands of hippies, thousands of blocked crossways and pedestrian routes to The Perimeter. They are protesting Barack Obama’s War in Iraq, as well as the fact that anyone is dying anywhere in the world. Let’s immanentize their eschaton, after the jump.

George Bush Heckled At Thomas Jefferson’s Slave Mansion

Hello everyone. How were your Fourth of July weeks? Well that’s wonderful. The worst Fourth of July experience this year was probably that of Jesse Helms, who hilariously died. But important founding father Thomas Jefferson also died on the Fourth of July (five, ten years ago-ish), and that’s why President Bush spent his holiday at Jefferson’s house, Monticello, among the ghosts of his “mocha” bastard slave children. And then RADICAL LEFT protest group Code Pink harassed him a bunch of times, just like they did every day when Jefferson lived his naked life with Sacagawea.

Polar Bears, Hippies And Scary Cover Bands End Iraq War!

Hurrah, Wonkette made a movie! We went to D.C.’s McPherson Square, which has been overrun by lefty protest group Code Pink. They have tents and will probably live there forever, because of the Subprimes. Combine the lameness of Washington D.C. with a vague, day-long protest and there’s only one possible result: a big lady, an old beardy man and a polar bear dancing to a Rage Against The Machine cover band. The Iraq War will have no choice but to stop immediately. More photos and videos from “on the ground” coming shortly!

Code Pink Protesters Lay Siege To Union Station

Washington D.C. is a riot zone today, as Code Pink lefty protesters and various other George Washington and Georgetown University douchebags are protesting the Iraq War. On its birthday, of all times! We’ll be checking out some of these fun, artful protests later today, but feel free to send us any wonderful operative pix you take on your own! Otherwise, enjoy this video of Code Pink’s anti-war “freeze-in” at Union Station yesterday afternoon. It will take a nation of simulated mannequins to stop this war.

‘Rat Swarm’ Rumors Cripple Washington

Fears of a massive rat & roach spring swarm have crippled much of the District this evening as horrified office workers and other war profiteers watch major thoroughfares blocked off by mounted police while 20-foot-tall “rat proofing” concrete barriers are raised from Georgetown to Foggy Bottom. Law enforcement officials are keeping quiet about the real reasons for the horror stampede, and many locals fear for their lives. What the living hell is going on?
