Political indigestion: Another Code Pink hunger strike

Hide the ice cream and coffee! Code Pink’s going on a hunger strike again:

Marghi Dutton is 90 and losing her eyesight, but nothing was going to stop her from trekking to midspan of the Golden Gate Bridge on Sunday with the anti-war group Code Pink: Women for Peace.

She joined a crowd of about 100 demonstrators dressed in hot pink hats, shirts and scarves and fought the wind to raise her sign: “Impeach Bush and Cheney!”

“My arms are aching, but I’m getting energy from the drivers — so many are honking in support,” she said.

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.

Hard to believe it’s been just over a year since I gained weight on the Cindy Sheehan Diet Plan:

“If there is no agreement to begin impeachment proceedings by Monday, Sheehan will announce her candidacy challenging Pelosi for election in California’s 8th Congressional District.”

Cindy Sheehan kicked off Daily Kos: “I know a lot of you are hostile towards my candidacy.”

Blue on blue: When peaceniks attack…each other. dKos commenters rate Sheehan a “troll.” Plus: The “Draft Gore” campaign steams ahead…and Hillary’s comin’ to the nutroots Kos convention.
