AWESOME CODE PINK ACTION!

Omg....the guy held the sign in front of NATIONAL TELEVISION for 20 or more seconds blocking the speaker!

I've never seen anything like this. Very effective. Thank you Code Pink!

8. The problem is...

The problem is, neither Code Pink or anyone else could possibly do more harm to the NRA (in PR terms) than the shit that comes out of Wayne Lapierre's mouth.

12. I was thinking the same thing

It seemed like they were everywhere protesting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and then for some reason just about disappeared very early in '09.

This is great, though. Glad to see them back

18. Jeez, apparently they were quite busy!

The only thing I could recall was the repuke convention and that they were at the Dem convention with some people from OWS.

19. If you watch closely, the hands holding the banner.

He was shaking. Either excitement, fear, adrenaline, whatever... Kudos for standing up for what he believes in.

The second protester, I love how she just kept chanting on and on...

and on...






and on...





Wayne tries to speak - and on...



Wayne tries to speak again - and on...


Her voice did not waver.
