Whatever Happened to Code Pink?

Activists take part in a demonstration to protest
against corporate greed near the Capitol Building
in Washington, DC, on October 5, 2011.

I saw these familiar t-shirts and thought the Pinkists were at it again. Remember the bloody hands they shoved in Condi Rice's face? Well it stands to reason, with the same wars happening, plus another one as well, that they would be out protesting eventually. But as the caption points out, it's "war? eh, not so much" these days. Now it's corporate greed. The signs still mention war but they're probably left over from back in the days when Bushitler roamed the White House. (Obhitler just doesn't ring the same)

So now, depending on who you ask, it's: corporate greed, student loans, wall street, bankers, and somehow union interests. War, that's just sooo 2008.
