Code Pink calls for war

Sort of. They're as frustrated with Democrats as we are with RINO Republicans, like the Huckster. Today's Washington Times gives us the story of how they're calling for "regime change" in the Democrat caucus:

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.

The Code Pinkies think, much like the nutroots, that they own the Democrat party, and the problem with that thinking is that they have no clue how the party works. They don't have the funds to take down numerous members of the caucus. They may get a couple other unhinged antiwar groups to jump on board, but they still won't have the clout. And no, the Kossacks aren't going to be a factor. (Markos is still smarting over the whooping that Ned Lamont suffered at the hands of Joe Lieberman.)

This is a simple comedy routine. Every election that comes up, the unhinged ones come out from underneath their rocks. Personally, I'm wondering why none of these nuts ever see any serious jail time for all the problems they cause in committee hearings. If they get locked up, get heavily fined, maybe they'll shut the Hell up, and make life a little easier for the saner voices in the nation.

Seriously, these people have a right to speak, but all too often what they claim is a freedom of expression amounts to premeditated disruption. I'm all for freedom of speech, but there are limits to it and in my opinion, all too often, they push that limit.
