|For those who suspect the U.S. peace movement is less about peace than it is about politics, we thought it was worth revisiting some recent comments from comedienne-turned-foreign policy expert Janeane Garofalo, who criticized the Fox News Channel yesterday as a mouthpiece for the Bush administration.
On Sunday Garofalo told "Fox News Sunday" that she staunchly opposed Operation Desert Fox - Bill Clinton's impeachment-eve cruise missile attack on Baghdad. The only reason she and her Hollywood buddies weren't marching in the streets, Garofalo explained, was because "it wasn't hip."
So I guess it is only "Hip" to protest war when a Republican is in office. And people wonder why people are starting to attach hypoctites like Mike Farrell, Martin Sheen and all the others. Sure they have the right to speak out. They also have the right to make a complete A$$ of themselves. Which some of them are doing a very good job of.

|We know damn well we are just peons screwing around when we should be working; they think they have all the answers and due to their success, have a superior right to influence others. At least that's how they appear.
They have a perfect right to voice their opinions. We have the same right to boycott or say what we think about their opinions and hypocrisy.
