I wonder if they used any eye of newt?

I wouldn't stand too close to these wing-nuts, as a bolt of lightning might hit them.

Members of Code Pink have continued their presence at the Berkeley recruiting center. This is not news. However, they are now resorting to odd means to try to persuade people to their side: WITCHCRAFT!

That's right, they are attempting to cast spells.

"Women are coming to cast spells and do rituals and to impart wisdom to figure out how we're going to end war," [said] Zanne Sam Joi of Bay Area Code Pink.

Included in the spectacle were signs stating, "Peace" (that real origin, eh?) and "Warmongers--Eating our Children for Profit." (Dang, eating children? They must have read FIAR'S blog--or "A Modest Proposal"). This was not to be outdone by the presence of a cauldron brimming with flowers.

These attempts at worshiping their Witchy-Poo goddess were countered, though.

Members of the pro-troops group Move Forward America came armed with packages of salt, which they spread around the recruiting station to keep the Marines safe from spells. The group's Web site implored members to bring brooms to "mock the anti-American witches of Code Pink."

Just when you think things couldn't get more ridiculous. Ugh.

I cannot believe anyone takes them seriously. It is truly the behavior of children. What's next? "I'll hold my breath until you leave your legally inhabited space?"

There is no bottom in that well of stupidity.

If they want the war to end and they have the ability to cast spells, why are they not over there casting Mage Armor on our troops. If they summoned an Earth Elemental and sent it into the hills looking for Bin Laden, this would all be over.

Stupid Charm Person spell. . . .

I know I'm repeating myself, but I just cannot fathom how people take them seriously.

World of Warcraft to save the world? Now, that would be interesting.

My 38 year-old cousin who lives with his mom and plays it could be a hero! WOW!

Wait a minute! I can profit from eating children? And here I've just been doing it for the fun of it. What was I thinking? Thanks for the info. I'm about to be very wealthy.

Do I get 10 percent of the profits?
