Oh yeah!

Medea Benjamin, co-founder of the activist group Code Pink, is arrested as she begins to stage a protest outside Fox News headquarters in New York, Tuesday Aug. 31, 2004. The (sic) protested Fox News and its personalities, shouting 'Fox news lies' and 'Murdock shutup.'
You have to click through so you'll know I haven't been Photoshopping. Medea is an extremely odd individual. As well as pond scum.

UPDATE: On scene report from counter protesters.
Medea Benjamin, Code Pink's most famous actor, arrived late and donned a ridiculous pink tiara. She came around and faced us so she could read our signs. I told her she was failing. That despite her efforts Saddam was overthrown and our troops' morale was still high. I added an encouraging thought for her, reminding her that at least Fidel is still in power.

Jodie Evans, founder of Code Pink, approached ELS and grasped her sign with one hand demanding to know why we were using the name of her group on our signs. I told her to take her hand off the sign, which she immediately did.

She complained about the messages on our signs about Code Pink. We argued they were truthful and presented our case to her. She finally said, "We have nothing against communism."

I thanked her for her honesty.
