Exposing Bush

When Republicans descend on New York at the end of this month they will definitely be getting their panties in a bunch -- if they end up at Robert F. Wagner Park in lower Manhattan on September 1, that is.

The Axis of Eve coalition is planning a "Panty Performance Protest" at 6pm in the park, where its "brazen women" will carry out their mission of exposing themselves (no nudity, mind you) in order to help "expose and depose" President Bush. More than 100 women will participate in the mass flash, which will showcase the group's provocative line of protest panties emblazoned with such sexy admonitions as "give bush the finger," "expose bush" and "weapon of mass seduction."

Conservative Republicans may prefer to be titillated behind closed doors, but anyone sympathetic to Axis of Eve's desire to strip bare the Bush administration's numerous transgressions won't want to miss this spectacle.

And the anarchists thought they were the ones stirring up all the nervous excitement.
