On delicious irony

Okay, so this is way more ironic than ten thousand spoons. Courtesy of TBogg, a tale of Move America Forward, whom we met earlier with their "You Don't Speak for Me, Cindy" caravan. Apparently, they showed their mettle by clashing with and beating the pudding out of another protest group.

The rub: the group was the Protest Warriors, and they were on the same side:
The crowd, which organizers said topped 3,000 but appeared closer to 1,500, chanted "Cindy, Go Home" and compared her to Jane Fonda, whose visit to a North Vietnamese gun site in 1972 earned her the nickname "Hanoi Jane."

"Cindy-Hanoi Jane," read one of the signs at the rally.

In one heated moment, members of the pro-Bush crowd turned on what they mistakenly thought were a group of anti-war protesters, cursing them, threatening them and tearing down their signs. A police officer rushed the group to safety.

Also, revel as Freep's Kristinn Taylor (and yes, all evidence to the contrary, that is a dude) gets into a slapfight with another protester, also on his side, proving that not even fellow wacko wingnuts can stand him.

This is fantastic news! There we that we actually had to fight against these people, when really, we just need to sit back and watch them cannibalize themselves! Brilliant.

Oh, and darn TBogg to heck for getting in the "Life of Brian" reference before I could.
