Clinton, Pelosi get boobed in San Francisco
with Breasts Not Bombs protest
July 24, 2007
Democratic presidential front-runner Senator Hillary Clinton
and Speaker Nancy Pelosi were the targets of a group of anti-war
The group, organized by Code

Pelosi to use her position as the most powerful woman in U.S.
political history to impeach President George W. Bush and Vice
President Dick Cheney.
"We're here to press the Speaker to call for impeachment
because the office of the presidency has been abused," said
Sherry Glaser. "Whether it's spying on the American people,
or false representation in going to war

offences," she said.
The protestors are also calling on Pelosi to cut funding for
the war. To date, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan has resulted
in the deaths of 3637 U.S. service personnel, and as

The cost of the war is quickly
approaching half a trillion dollars, an amount close to the U.S.
federal budget surplus accrued under President Bill Clinton.
"We're calling on Pelosi to absolutely stop all the funding
for the war and to get our troops home immediately, starting today,"
said Marget Howe.

At approximately 5:30 p.m., several protesters removed their
shirts and brassieres while other protestors held signs that read,
"Breasts not Bombs" and "Hillary - Warmonger or
The protesters were summarily ushered away while cheers and sneers
were heard from all quarters.
