"Hanoi Jane" Takes Her Stand

AP reports today that has-been actress “Hanoi Jane” Fonda, infamous for wearing an enemy helmet and posing in 1972 sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun, and smiling with the gun-crew, has taken her stand on Iraq. Hanoi Jane says that she intends to take a cross-country bus tour to call for an end to US military involvement in Iraq.

The anti-war bus will supposedly run on “vegetable oil” although it seems probable that Hanoi Jane produces enough methane and hot air to power the thing all by her lonesome.

Hanoi Jane says that she has not “…taken a stand on any war since Vietnam” and that the bus tour is going to be "exciting." Yeah, right. The 70's are over, dear. Nixon resigned and we lost. As for your taking a stand: that’s important to know. You can bet that the foreign and military policy establishments burn gallons of the best Saudi midnight oil, wondering what Hanoi Jane the actress thinks about US policy towards North Korea, Iran, the war in Iraq or nuclear physics.

Attention terrorist high command: Call this lady's agent ! I’m sure you guys can find a suicide car bomb crew for her to pose with this time out.

Seriously, this should actually be a boon to the American war effort. I can’t think of a better way to rally support for the war than to have Hanoi Jane come out against it.

Lefties will be happier than michael jackson in a room full of underage boys.

Besides, why is this news? We know she's anti-American & loves to disdain our troops.

Maybe Alec B & Sean P will join her!
