Confessions of a Pink Intern: Out On The Hill

In lieu of not posting a blog yesterday today is a two-blog kind of day.
On Tuesday the Pink interns were sent off to find Congressman, Dennis Kucinich to ask for the favor of his endorsement of CODEPINK to the Israeli embassy for our upcoming trip to Egypt and the Gaza Strip. We found him at his hearing for the Committee of Oversight and Government Reform, and were able to catch the last few minutes of his statement concerning the legalization of marijuana. We were able to chase him down as the hearing recessed for lunch. Kucinich was very amiable and supportive of CODEPINK, and agreed to put in a good word for us with the Israeli embassy, which is great because we could use all the good credit we can get with them considering their distaste with our pro-Palestine stance. The rest of the day passed quickly as the interns ran around the Hill trying to garner support from other Congressmen, which I found to be quite grueling process that involved being shuffled from this aid to that aid, leaving messages with this or that secretary, and frequently being given the amorphous reply of "Well, we will see what we can do . . ." by everyone but the Congressmen we sought. The level of commitment was astounding (insert sarcasm here).
Today, the agenda is to attend the hearing for the Committee of Foreign Relations which our dear Hillary R. Clinton is presiding over. For those of you who read this in time, be sure to check CSPAN for Pinkies at the hearing.

So the new pink hunter finds it quite hard to track down her most likely soon to be prey. Patience is a virtue, but so is resilience. Good hunting...and happy trails.
