Edina (MN) woman shaves head in protest at climate gathering
StarTribune.com ^ | 12/18,09 | Paul Walsh

Posted on 12/18/2009 8:13:45 PM PST by ButThreeLeftsDo

An Edina woman in Copenhagen for the U.N. climate conference as part of a youth group joined 30 others in shaving their heads outside the conference center on Friday, the last scheduled day of the gathering.

Valida Prentice, 24, who traveled to Copenhagen two weeks ago as an accredited observer, and the others each held a sign outside the conference center that explained why they made this symbolic gesture.

"Shaving my head can symbolize a lot," Prentice said in a prepared statement, "the ugly negotiating process, the bad decisions made by negotiators, or the catastrophic changes that unabated climate change could bring about. But for me, my shaved head symbolizes a promise of new growth in the international climate movement to secure a fair and binding international agreement on climate change."

Well. That certainly adds a lot ot the debate. About as much as Algore's fulminations, come to think of it.

I think the headline should read

“Edina woman shaves head because she is a stupid moron”

I once met a guy, a Dane, who remembered when Danes shaved the heads of female Nazi collaborators after the war--in the town square.

That’ll show ‘em! I bet they all rush right back to the table and agree to some big ol’ treaty now that this freak has shaved her head. And she needs to change her diet. Her skin is disgraceful.

Leave it to the Strib to find an utter kook to highlight.

Does the opinion of an accredited observer carry more weight than the opinion of an unaccredited observer?

So now she looks like Elmer Fudd. Big improvement.

Reminds me of Sinéad O'Connor. Didn't her career really take off after she shaved her head? No, maybe not. I must be thinking of Jean Seberg. No, not her either.

Well anyway, everyone in Minnesota will be able to recognize her all winter long while they experience day after day of record low temperatures. She may even get a short whining role on that Prarie Home Companion radio show with Gary Keillor. Uff da!

This is the ultimate statement of frustration on behalf of this muddled-headed young woman and symbolic of the impotency of the left. When all else fails and when you want the world attention, do something utterly stupid and pointless such as this young woman has done. Pull out your hair or shave it all off, rend your garments , wring your hand, wailing and gnashing of teeth, etc. What idiotcy

Yeah, but I'd bet she doesn't shave her pits or her legs.
And I'd bet she smells worse then a coyote.

Gotta hand it to the babe. If she was going for a symbol of "ugly", she hit it right on the *head*.

So, let me get this right...the news media can’t hardly make themselves talk about the 1 million plus people who marched on Washington recently. However, they are more than happy to highlight this person, who is a memeber of a group of 30??????????

Some women can pull off the bald look and still be beautiful.

This is not one of them.

If her hair was as greasy and as infected as her skin, maybe it’s a GOOD thing that she shaved it.

Normally these people protest such weighty issues by taking off their clothes. I guess it’s just too bloody cold in Denmark this time of year for a traditional naked-lefty protest.

Awww, geez. This could be my niece (husband’s side, LOL), except she’s in Minnetonka. Her parents are wannabe hippies that never grew up.

Lots of deluded youth are up and coming here in the land of 10,000 taxes. I think their hope and change dreams are about to get smacked upside their shaved heads.

I don't have a translator to convert all that moonbatese to English, so I guess I'll have to remain ignorant and un-enlightened.

Does the opinion of an accredited observer carry more weight than the opinion of an unaccredited observer?

Of course. The unaccredited observer doesn't have a badge and is probably $150 richer for not having paid for it. Therefore their opinion is... well...cheaper?

Yeah, big deal.

Moonbat chicks still won’t shave their underarms or legs.
They’ll never get it.
