Take My Hand ... I'm a Vagina in Pakistan

(Sung to the tune of "Stranger in Paradise") 

Quote of the day to By Other Means who notes that members of Code Pink are heading to Pakistan to help protest US drone strikes.  And the Taliban are threatening to kill them.
I want an internet video feed, a couch, and popcorn.
I can't imagine the vagina costumes are going to work in Pakistan.  They're not going to a big city, where - maybe - they might be viewed as crazy westerners and just be run out of town.  They're going to the "Tribal areas", South Waziristan where the Taliban rules, and proudly shoots little girls in the face for acting the slightest bit out of their rules.  

The second thing I thought of was Robert A. Heinlein's quote on stupidity:
Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can't help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime: the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity.  RAH - Time Enough for Love 


  1. Considering that Obama will not respond to the killing of one of his own ambassadors, what are the chances he would respond to the killing of some Code PInk clowns by his friends, the muslims?

    Perhaps we should keep Mum about this possibility. Remember: loose labia sink ships.

    1. First I almost spat coffee. Then I thought "why didn't I think of that?". Six hours later, Mrs. Graybeard did the exact same things.

  2. Life getting you down? Debts piling up? Want to end it all? Join Code Pink and all lifes problems will disappear ...

    Sesame Street has a lot to answer for.
