When CODE PINK calls a CODE RED --
Who ya gonna call?

Not Ghostbusters!

Misery-muffin, motor-mouth, and pain-in-the-peacenik, the (appropriately-named) Medea Benjamin, apparently got into a scuffle with a drive-by spit artist while striking peaceful poses in front of the embattled Marine recruiting office in Berkeley, CA. She had the stones to chase after the guy until he got out of his car to confront her, at which time she feared for her safety and pushed the panic button.

Unfortunately for her, this time there were no police anywhere in sight, so she did what real Americans do in a crisis.

She called out for [wait for it] the Marines.

Some radio talker (of whom I know nothing else) covers the whole thing here.

Gotta love it.

Creative soul Roger von Oech is visiting Vietnam, including the place John McCain called "home" (NOT) for 5 1/2 years. Take a gander. [h/t Instapundit]

Meanwhile back in Sweet Home Chicago, one of Barack Obambi's close associates, Tony Rezko, [pictured at left between.... Bill and Hill! Love it!] goes on trial on charges of being one of the bigger rats in the sewer which is (and has been for a good century and a half) Chicago/Illinois politics.

Promises to be revealing as to just what sort of goo Mr. Obambi had to wade in, in order to shoot to t
he top in so short a time. The proceedings do not appear to be aimed with any specificity at He-who-shall-not-be-middle-named, but it remains to be seen whether there will be something lingering around him besides the Odor of Sanctity. [h/t Instapundit again, with help from NewsAlert and ABC]


... and they're saying that Obambi is talking out of both sides of his mouth about NAFTA. Thanks to CTV for reporting that there's apparently some nudge-nudge/wink-wink going on when the Senator tells Ohio that NAFTA will be up for grabs in an Obama administration -- because his operatives tell Canadian trade officials that, aw shucks, he's just joshin', 'cause he's tryin' to win an election. Captain Ed, now at HOT AIR, gives the details.
