Don’t the public officials in the People’s Republic of Berkeley have anything better to do?
No, no they don’t:
The city of Berkeley mailed coat hangers to 20 members of Congress on Wednesday in protest of the anti-abortion amendment in the House version of the federal health care bill.
The City Council approved the action 7-1 on Tuesday night. Councilman Gordon Wozniak dissented; Mayor Tom Bates was absent.
Metal coat hangers were mailed with a protest letter to members of the House of Representatives who voted in favor of the amendment but have a history of supporting abortion rights.
Jan Schakowsky approves.
President Obama, please direct your protests against inflammatory fear-mongering to the wire hanger-wielders. Now.
Question: What should we send the Berkeley City Council?
