code pink helps condi see code red

I did not expect to see "Code Pink" as the number six search in google trends this afternoon. This, after all, is the place we first heard of the Miss New Jersey nudie debacle (which became a blog goldmine). But there they were front and center on trends.

Apparently, a member of Code Pink infiltrated a congressional hearing and confronted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. "The blood of millions of Iraqis is on your hands!" she screamed before being dragged out by security.

For those of you who don't know, Code Pink is "a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities."

These ladies ain't no wussies: they're strong, in your face and not afraid of no handcuffs. They're also our work neighbors and wonderful people!

What I thought when reading about this, is how rare it is to see one woman attack another in a public forum. It kind of defies convention regarding how we believe women should interact in public. Though we're used to seeing congressMEN kick and scream at each other but seeing one powerful woman take on another...not so common. In fact, so not common that it makes google trends.
