Hillary vs. Moonbats
Clinton is seeing pink. Code Pink. The unruly group of far-left
female apologists for tyranny around the world, most infamous
for prancing around in pastel lingerie to protest President Bush
and the war on terror, has now launched a nationwide campaign
against the New York senator because of her opposition to immediate
troop withdrawals from Iraq.
weep for Hillary.
is the group that championed military deserters, cheered Venezuelan
dictator Hugo Chavez, traipsed around the Jordan-Iraq border last
year condemning America, prayed for the "people of Fallujah,"
doled out $600,000 in aid to what they called "the other
side" and is planning a New Year's vacation to Cuba in solidarity
with the Castro regime. Sen. Clinton couldn't have wished for
a better Christmas present than having these loony peaceniks barking
about her faux moderate makeover. 2008 Democratic presidential
nomination, here she comes! If she doesn't trip on the way to
her Senate re-election bid and the unhinged-dominated Democratic
primaries, that is. (Two words, Hill: Skip. Iowa.)
Code Pink's liberal exhibitionistas and their allies from Grandmothers
Against the War, Brooklyn Parents for Peace and Veterans for Peace
organized in New York City to dog Sen. Clinton for refusing to
embrace the Cut-and-Run wing of the Democrat Party. Wearing "large
theatrical ears and pink gear," Code Pink members planned
to gather at the Manhattan club Crobar on Tuesday night to heckle
Hillary during a Senate fund-raiser. Their placard-sized complaint:
"Hillary, you're not listening; Bring the Troops Home Now."
hearing seems fine, actually. It's the anti-war zealots who need
a gallon of earwax remover. Eww. What part of 403-3, the House
vote against immediate withdrawal, don't they understand?)
weekend, Code Pink and company shouted Sen. Clinton down in Chicago
during what was supposed to be a motivational speech to young
people. The Code Pink website proudly crowed:
Clinton was the keynote speaker at an event to get high school
and college kids interested in politics. Eight CODEPINKers,
with pink umbrellas, treated Hillary to a CODEPINK-style protest,
opening their umbrellas and chanting, "Out of Iraq Now"
-- one word on each umbrella. People in the crowd chanted "Troops
out now," and others had signs along the same vein. One
friend threw leaflets down on the crowd. It was [an] amazing

looking to bolster her image as a credible mainstream figure on
defense and national security matters, couldn't have staged it
better herself. But is the Retreat Now! faction of the Democrat
pundits like to gloat about the supposed conservative crack-up,
but the cleavages within the Democrat Party are far deeper and
more difficult to straddle. Just as Sen. Clinton is fending off
the rabid anti-warriors of Code Pink, guess who showed up on the
group's website grinning from ear to ear with two bright Code
Pink T-shirts in each hand?
National Committee Chairman Howard Dean.
of the party's coalition of the quivering has declared this week
that the war in Iraq is "unwinnable" and called for
bringing "80,000 National Guard and Reserve troops home immediately,"
while nonsensically advocating placement of "a force in the
Middle East, not in Iraq but in a friendly neighboring country
to fight [terrorist chief Abu Musab al-] Zarqawi" and sending
more troops to Afghanistan instead.
the aimless John Kerry continues his long legacy of public troop-smearing
-- taking to CBS News airwaves to accuse American soldiers in
Iraq of "terrorizing kids and children, you know, women,
breaking sort of the customs of the -- of -- the historical customs,
of deranged defeatism will earn you a Code Pink T-shirt and a
hug from Cindy Sheehan. But as Hillary (dangerously for Republicans)
seems to understand, it won't win much else. George W. Bush isn't
the Dems' biggest enemy, it turns out. It's the living ghost of
