John Yoo, lucky duck of a man, can now add the lovely ladies of Code Pink to his ever-expanding fan base. Like so many shameless groupies, the avid activists clamored outside his Berkeley residence early Sunday evening, vying desperately for the law professor’s attention. Haven’t they any dignity?
Okay, so that’s not exactly how it went down, which (transparent sarcasm notwithstanding) we’re sure you would have guessed if you’ve heard anything, ever, about Code Pink. The protesters spent two hours in front of Yoo’s home under the surveillance of UC police, bearing signs inscribed with such stern admonishments as “Shame on Yoo.” Which, actually, has not made an appearance as one of our endlessly amusing yoophemisms until now.
Speaking of amusing: Oaks4Peace News Crunchers, in covering this particular exploit, took care to mention as something of a postscript not only Yoo’s address, but that there is “ample street parking, and a public sidewalk across from his house” as well. Fair enough … ? How very thoughtful of them.
