Score: Code Pink snatches up Jon Stewart for drone strike memo campaign; Update: False, says Comedy Central

Code Pinkos have been outspoken critics of the Obama Administration’s use of unmanned drones, but, darn it, very few people seem to be taking them seriously.

Until now, that is. The costumeloving lady parts have recruited super-credible comedian and “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart to help spread their message:

The question is, what wouldn’t he do? In an “e-alert,” Stewart writes:

I got a call from my friend Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK. She saw that my correspondent Aasif Mandvi had the memos and wanted us to release them. But ever since he read them, Aasif’s been too scared to come out from under his desk. So Medea asked me to join her in demanding that Congress do something. Naturally, I said no. I’m a comedian, not an activist. But then she said I could have one of the giant vaginas she sometimes wears and I said “absolutely.” As a virile man, I’d do anything for a vagina.

So join me in calling on Patrick Leahy — the big, bald-headed Democrat who heads the Senate Judiciary Committee — to get his hands on those drone memos. If he does, he’ll be doing us a public service. And he can have my vagina.


Yes, finally. Sure took him long enough to wait into political waters.

Keep those fingers crossed!

Le swoon!

Whatta guy.


Comedy Central told The Hollywood Reporter that the “e-alert” was not written by Stewart or anyone else at the network.

Code Pink has not responded to THR’s report on Twitter.

Twitchy apologizes for attributing the counterfeit letter to Stewart.

    That picture of Stewart in the pink shirt is a bad photoshop job. The head is all wrong and those hands are way to big.

    • Tangchung

      Think you’re right, looks fake.

    • SpinMeNot

      Look at his forehead, right at the hair line. I just did this on my Mac using pixelmator; something is definitely wrong with this image.

    Pictures of Jon in a pink vag costume to follow………..

    • journogal

      Don’t think he needs a costume…

        That’s gonna leave a mark!

    Liberals doing something useful? Wow …. I’m prolly dreaming or something.

  • SJ’s Dad

    OK, so code pink wears oversized lady-part costumes, and they want to see the memo RE: Drones which look like over sized flying . . .
    . . . you just can’t make this stuff up!!!

    John’s gonna live to regret that picture.

    that picture of Stewart is just a little creepy.

    “Finally, Jon Stewart gets political.” Seriously? That’s the tweet you went with? Doesn’t Code Pink’s Twitter feed have an editor or an ombudsman or a janitor, anything?

    Wait, what? She asked him a favor, he said no thank you, so she dangled vagina in front of him to talk him into helping? I’m so confused – aren’t feminist against sexism? Using a vagina (albeit not a real one) to entice a man to change his mind – oh cupcakes, you can’t get lower than that.

    • grais

      Exactly. This is what has happened to the movement for women’s rights. And they don’t even see it. Because they’re not really feminists. They’re just silly girls.

  • Howzah123

    John Stewart is a propagandist

    Nothing more

  • grais

    Pardon me if I refuse to take seriously women who demand respect while wearing female genitalia costumes.

  • ClarkFL

    Jon Stewart finally gets political??? Have these people been sniffing paint thinner for the past 10 years? I seriously think democrats have only one setting – Stupid.

  • SpinMeNot

    In fairness, CP has the right idea here — I wish I could reason out the causative objection. CP loves BHO, but hates the drone program. If a Republican had conceived of and initiated the drone program, he would have been impeached.

    I applaud what Sen. Leahy is doing, but something seems odd here.

  • Charles Knott

    Dear jon Stewart : we want you to stop supporting Westboro baptist Church Part Deux……KTHNXBAI

  • Ser

    The letter is fake, he didn’t write it. And that’s been confirmed.
