Code Pink member collapses in Lieberman’s office

By Klaus Marre
June 28, 2007
A member of the anti-war group Code Pink who had staged a hunger strike in order to force a meeting with Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) on his stance on Iran collapsed in the senator’s office Thursday.

Leslie Angeline, who had recently traveled to Iran, wanted to discuss the senator’s remarks from earlier this month that indicate he would support a limited air strike on the country.

The 50-year-old woman launched a hunger strike to get a face-to-face meeting with Lieberman but was repeatedly rebuffed, according to Code Pink. However, Lieberman's staff has met with her on the issue.


Members of Code Pink have been trying to meet with Lieberman for quite a bit now, but he keeps on putting them off. One would almost have to think he was scared. Or even unable to defend his stance in a non fixed forum? (aka Faux)

Or maybe even a total goon war mongering wussy?

So many possibilities.

Lieberman is simply doing what Bush has done all along. He will meet only with supporters or very controlled groups. And like Bush he is a liar, corrupt, and not the brightest bulb in the ceiling. AND he is as you say a total goon war mongering wussy.

I think she is the last guest, so in the last quarter of this two-hour broadcast, on Counterpoint With Scott Harris from ten days ago. You definitely want to hear it.

That is good activism. Lay yourself on the line. But...

So why are they "Code Pink?" Gay, girls, ??

It just dosen't sound like an "anti-war" group name.

Why bother meeting with her? She obviously wasn't going to be persuaded by anything he had to say. Basically you're upset that Lieberman decided to avoid a confrontation that would be impossible to win. The Marines go out of their way to avoid unwinnable fights and their not wussies. Anyone willing to starve themselves to near death is not someone you can turn around to your point of view. Just my two cents.

The name "Code Pink" was created as a play on the stupid ass color wheel of threat levels Tom Ridge came up with at DHS.

As they say over at FOX, if he's too cowardly to stand up to Code Pink, how can he stand up to Iran?

Why do you put (D-Conn) after LIEberman's name? The Democratic candidate (Ned Lamont) was defeated in the general election.

LIEberman is the Party of Joe, or something like that.

I thought Code Pink was named that because they were giving out pink slips, I think you are right about the threat level thing. Hey, speaking of threat levels, does the Bush Admin trot that out anymore? Did they add Chartreuse?

lieber-me continues to kiss up to president bush. he's a neoconservative trying to portray himself as a moderate...and it's not working. he's arrogant, self-serving, and lied about what he would do to bring our soliders back from Iraq when he was running as an "independent." he gave gonzales a pass, says we are winning the war, wants to increase domestic spying...it's a real scary and long list...Today on ABC was the most frightening inteview I've heard from him in a long time.
joe knows this is bush's religious war, just like the crusades...and he's all for it!

If the power to recall him existed in Connecticut he would no longer be in office.

Thanks for the clue on the "Code Pink" thing...

InRe: Libermann...talk of flip flopping. The guy is a squirrel on one of those wheels that keeps going round and round.

Just looking at him makes me want to take a shower, talk of smarmy.

The day after the 2008 elections, once the democrats have achieved a true majority in the senate, Harry Reid needs to throw Lieberman off every committee he is linked with , and them throw him out a window.
