High expectations, diminished returns

Four members of Code Pink, protesting the Democratic leadership’s inaction on ending the war in Iraq, were arrested this afternoon outside of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office. I love this bit of naiveté from Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin:

“We’re just heartbroken that Nancy Pelosi has decided to keep funding George Bush’s war, and now the war belongs to the Democrats as well as the Republicans. We thought we were going to get a change when they came into power.”

Of course you did.

The Democrats and the Republicans are two wings of the same party. There's not a dime's worth of difference between them.

Anyone who thinks there is is as naive as can be.
