It had to happen.
Was wondering when Code PInk would show up. #Kerry

I couldn't hear what that Code Pinko said, but I could probably guess down to a word or two.

A Code Pink loon showed up at John Kerry’s Senate confirmation hearing this morning. Thankfully, the womyn left her floppy lady-parts costume at home.
Code pink, code pink! (Thank God we were spared the giant vagina suits!) #KerryHearing

But even sans vagina suit, she managed to capture Kerry’s attention.

Strange, or deliciously fitting?
40 years ago, Kerry was that Code Pink activist.

Kerry opted to embrace the outburst, weaving it into his statement.
The Code Pink protestor prompts Kerry to allude to his Vietnam testimony.

Protester just interrupted Kerry nomination…. Kerry now saying he "respects" the woman who interrupted him…

John Kerry on protester who interrupted his hearing: "I respect the woman who was voicing her concerns about that part of the world."

Kerry says protester "in a way that's a good exclamation point to my testimony." "People measure what we do," he says.

Cue the swooning about Kerry’s “brilliance.”
Aaand there's the requisite interruption from @CodePink — Kerry handles it brilliantly expressing "respect", need for voices to be heard.

But at least it livened up the Capitol Hill snooze-fest.
Hell Yes! Nothing like a Code Pink protester yelling shit to wake this hearing up! #kerryhearing
