Banging Away

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you simply can’t make this shit up sometimes.

Liberal activists—among them graying leftovers from the Vietnam-era antiwar movement—plan to gather near the Capitol tonight, banging pots and pans to drown out President Bush’s State of the Union address.

Yesterday, opponents of the Iraq war kicked off their latest round of demonstrations with an “Impeachment Forum” held downtown in a private dining room at Busboys and Poets.

Featured speakers were 78-year-old former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark; longtime war protester Marcus Raskin, 71, who is head of the Institute for Policy Studies; and Cindy Sheehan, mother of an American soldier killed in Iraq.

Mrs. Sheehan—who became famous last year for staking out the president’s ranch in Crawford, Texas, and just returned from a visit with Venezuelan anti-American President Hugo Chavez—plans to speak tonight to protesters at the Capitol Reflecting Pool.

Last week, the group “World Can’t Wait—Drive Out the Bush Regime” was denied a permit to gather on the Mall for security reasons. The group won a federal lawsuit and has been given permission to bang away while Mr. Bush speaks to a joint session of Congress at 9 p.m.

The group’s Web site has gathered endorsements from left-leaning celebrities such as Susan Sarandon, Jane Fonda, Harry Belafonte and Sean Penn, but it’s unlikely that any stars will show up for tonight’s protest.

I mean, seriously, does this even need any further comment?  If you’ve ever wanted to see the true face of the American Left, ladies and gentlemen, here you go.  This is what the party of Truman and Kennedy has been reduced to.  Absolutely pathetic.
