More from Foreign Affairs Scholar Sean Penn & Code Pink

Oh wait, I mean high school diploma recipient and Jeff Spicoli portrayer Sean Penn... (...and is he morphing into Groucho Marx?)

This is what he had to say about the President of the United States on Saturday at a town hall meeting in Oakland:

"You and your smarmy pundits -- and the smarmy pundits you have in your pocket -- can take your war and shove it," Penn said. "Let's unite not only in stopping this war, but in holding this administration accountable."

"Let's make this crystal clear: We do support our troops, but not the exploitation of them and their families," he said. "The money that's spent on this war would be better spent on building levees in New Orleans and health care in Africa and care for our veterans. Iraq is not our toilet. It's a country of human beings whose lives that were once oppressed by Saddam are now in 'Dante's Inferno.'" (source

I was going to editorialize a bit, but now that I re-read the statements...I don't really think I need to.

The protests have moved to Nancy Pelosi's doorstep (Scary to have to see your constituents that close and personal, huh Nance?)

"Today, supporters will gather at nearby Alta Plaza Park at 5:30 p.m., then will walk single-file back to Pelosi's home in a mock funeral procession

"We're going to carry the death and the suffering to Nancy Pelosi's house," Blome said.

"We're mourning the people that are going to die between now and the end of the war, and we're going to mourn today's vote, because that's a big loss for us." (source)
