A group of topless women were dragged away by police on Sunday when they protested against former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as he voted in Italy's election.

The protesters, from the Ukrainian women's rights group Femen, shouted "Basta (Enough) Berlusconi", as the media tycoon was voting in a polling station in a Milan school.

The same words were painted on their bodies.

Police quickly grabbed the women and roughly bundled them away.

You're hungry for some Topless Ukrainian Feminist pictures?

You need a 3-day waiting period.

Then ask again.

"Be careful what you wish for....."

Actually, these Ukrainian women make their rounds about Europe um, er "protesting," lots of things.

They are not Code Pink, and if I had to guess, most of their travel expenses are probably covered by the men in whose towns they protest.

Mayhaps these feminists aren't the type you'd care to see topless?

"Police quickly grabbed the women and roughly bundled them away."

Wrapped them up like used Christmas Toys and took them home, they did.

As much as I enjoy these provoking threads, the aggregation of this makes me wonder if we made a huge error giving women the vote.

Well, if you do that google image search thing some of the pix show ‘em with tire marks on their bodies and a checkered flag thingie, so maybe they’re coming to NASCAR any day now.

I’m still trying to figure out what message the one with the Bugs Bunny panties was going for. Several obvious jokes spring to mind, though.

It seems like they have compensated for that with rage/anger.

After reviewing the photo evidence that you have submitted, I must say that I am shocked and dismayed at this display.

Shocked and dismayed that these women have nothing to protest in my neighborhood...

Ain't it true.

The lefties were supposed to be the gang of love and peace.

Now it seems that conservatives are the ones who believe in love, home, children, family...while the wretched welfare hordes hate straight men, mothers, babies and the King of Peace...and somehow equate the human body with spitballs or rotten tomatoes or even Molotov cocktails, forever hurling it about the public square.

Screw them I say. If you are going to fight, or shoot, then fight or shoot...don't send your naked women out to twist and shout.
