Jane Fonda Hits the Anti-war Road

The Left won't have to wait too long for other anti-war celebs to take Cindy Sheehan's place when the press tires of her.

Brash Brit anti-war mouthpiece, member of Parliament and chief Tony Blair basher George Galloway is bringing his brand of demagoguery to America.

Who better to accompany Galloway on his undermine-the-defense-of-America tour than Hanoi Jane?

If Joan Baez can sing at Sheehan's self-named Crawford, Texas, "Turdstock" campout, Jane Fonda may as well give the country a reprise of her Vietnam-era antics.

Coincidentally - or not - Galloway is coming to the states at the same time his book "Mr. Galloway Goes to Washington: The Brit Who Set Congress Straight About Iraq" is being released.

Galloway says: "I'm really pleased and excited to be going back to America to campaign against this illegal war and occupation. And to have Jane Fonda join me is fantastic. I'll be able to get that autograph at last."

The continent-hopping activist showed his unusual combination of arrogance and ignorance, adding, "I'm sure that when the full implications of the constitutional settlement lashed-up by the puppet Iraqi government are understood that opposition will grow massively."

The Galloway-Fonda road trip has actually been dubbed "Stand Up and Be Counted." It will start on September 13 in Boston and end with a rally on the 24th in Washington, D.C. I wonder who's paying for the tour.

Maybe when Sheehan goes home she can lend her backers to Fonda and Galloway: True Majority, a non-profit set up by Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream fame; Democracy for America, a group organized by Howard Dean of meltdown fame; Code Pink, a group set up by Medea Benjamin, founding director of Global Exchange, one of the groups that sent Sean Penn to Iraq; and, of course,

I've been thinking that maybe this time around, since there's no draft, the Peacenik Pair and their hippie friends will burn their American Express cards.
