Another Code Pink hunger strike

Cindy Sheehan's famous hunger strike included coffee, ice cream, and Jamba Juice smoothies. The hunger strike was so effective, that Michelle Malkin was able to gain weight when she jumped on board!

But, alas, the Code Pink wackos never give up.

Well, at least until they get hungry, and then they can run merrily over to Jamba Juice and get some blended strawberries, mangoes, or whatever else kind of smoothie they want, because that's how real hunger strikes work and all.

This time though, they don't even seem to know what exactly they're protesting:
"Code Pink, a national grassroots peace movement inspired by Bay Area women, organized the protest to call for an immediate end to the war in Iraq and immediate impeachment proceedings against President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

Protesters walked from the bridge to the Pacific Heights home of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., set up camp, cooked one last carbohydrate-heavy meal and began a hunger strike. About 40 gathered on some terraced steps near the senator's home, along with a half-dozen police officers.

"We have about eight people who are going to stop eating, including me," Code Pink spokeswoman Nancy Mancias said.

On Wednesday, the group plans to relocate the hunger strike to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's home on Broadway, where they will urge the San Francisco Democrat to hold a town hall meeting with constituents.

Code Pink leaders believe both lawmakers should be doing more to bring the troops home and to rally other Democrats to call for an end to the war.

"Feinstein voted for the war spending bill, and even though Pelosi didn't, she's not doing enough to convince others to join her," Mancias said.

...Their hunger strikes have drawn worldwide attention. In summer 2006, the group was invited to meet with members of the Iraqi parliament in Amman, Jordan, to discuss diplomacy."

So... they're having a hunger strike to get Nancy Pelosi to meet with constituents? That's it?

These loonies have hunger strikes for everything, but -- surprise, surprise -- even though almost none of their goals have been met, they are all eating! I mean, we're still in Iraq but I haven't seen one Code Pink moonbat keel over from starvation yet.

As John Hawkins notes at Right Wing News::
Do these Code Pink loons even understand the whole concept of a hunger strike? You don't just, not eat for a few days, or eat smoothies and ice cream for a few days, like Cindy Sheehan, and then start eating again even though your demands aren't met. You're supposed to withhold sustenance from yourself until you get what you want or keel over dead.

Stupid Code Pink hippies -- they practically protest full-time and they can't even do that right.

You know, maybe this is just a method to try and lose weight for them. It could be the new fad diet: the Protest Diet! Find something that pisses you off and say you're going on a hunger strike to end it. Don't eat for a few days, lose five pounds, and then quit, all the while making yourself seem like you really, really care.

Considering the moonbats are so fond of not eating, why don't they just become Catholics? We fast all the time, especially during Lent. But then, they wouldn't be able to make themselves feel all important and influential that way, so I guess that's out, too.

There was a peace activist at my university named Vince Eirene who did similar faux hunger strikes back in the 1980s. Ate pizza and orange juice on the sly. Really pathetic when you compare them to someone like Bobby Sands. Say what you will about the IRA's goals and methods, their hunger strikers were hard core.

Malkin gained weight? That would not be a bad thing....
