...played a key role in mobilizing women nationwide against an invasion of Iraq.

I love the way they make it sound like this is a HUGE uprising of "all women" across the nation. If they desired truth in reporting, they'd change this to say "a few hundred women."

Oh, and I always found her name interesting. "Medea" in Greek legend was the object of affection of Jason of "and the Argonauts" fame. They married and had some children, but he soon grew tired of her and started sleeping around.

In revenge she murdered all their children.

I guess her parents must have thought this an appropriate name for a "strong woman."

If the newspapers didn't write about these wierdos, no one would pay the slightest attention to them

Get this. Her real name is Susie. The DC CHapter found that out somehow.

So the question is, what sort of woman would find the adoption of the name of a mythical child killer to be an act of empowerment?

According to Benjamin, who is married and has two children

If her husband's name is Jason, I'm going to die laughing.

Oh, I know. I've been paying attention to her since she popped up behind Rumsfeld during a televised briefing last year.

She is literally involved in everything, everywhere now. She was even one of the phony "weapons inspectors" who showed up at the Aberdeen Proving Ground weekend before last. I don't know where she finds the time. I think she's planning to run for national office again after this is over.

If her organization is FOR human rights, why is she supporting an extreme violator of human rights? Moron.

Because it doesnt really matter what the cause is as long as Medea Media gets the focus

I've noticed that the FemiNazis typically revere the dregs of historic womanhood, like Sappho and Medea.

I noticed the capture beneath that "charming" photo: Download This Photograph.

My first impulse was to wonder "why?"

You know, we MUST find out where she gets her money. Her travel expenses alone must be quite high.

One good thing about her visibility: it lets us see that it is the SAME pepople showing up at all these different protests. Hopefully, we will be able to identify some more of them so that the press's inflation of the numbers protesting is discounted.

In revenge she murdered all their children.

And cooked them and served them to her husband for dinner.
