Score: Code Pink snatches up Jon Stewart for drone strike memo campaign; Updated

Code Pinkos have been outspoken critics of the Obama Administration’s use of unmanned drones, but, darn it, very few people seem to be taking them seriously.

Tell @senatorleahy: we want transparency when it comes to drone strikes: release the memos! @codepink codepink.salsalabs.com/o/424/p/dia/ac… #StopDrones

— CODEPINK (@codepink) February 27, 2013

Until now, that is. The costumeloving lady parts have recruited super-credible comedian and “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart to help spread their message:

What would Jon Stewart do for #vagina? codepink.org/article.php?id…

The question is, what wouldn’t he do? In an “e-alert,” Stewart writes:

I got a call from my friend Medea Benjamin, cofounder of CODEPINK. She saw that my correspondent Aasif Mandvi had the memos and wanted us to release them. But ever since he read them, Aasif’s been too scared to come out from under his desk. So Medea asked me to join her in demanding that Congress do something. Naturally, I said no. I’m a comedian, not an activist. But then she said I could have one of the giant vaginas she sometimes wears and I said “absolutely.” As a virile man, I’d do anything for a vagina.

So join me in calling on Patrick Leahy — the big, bald-headed Democrat who heads the Senate Judiciary Committee — to get his hands on those drone memos. If he does, he’ll be doing us a public service. And he can have my vagina.

Lovely.

Finally, Jon Stewart gets political. Joins @codepink to light a fire under Senator Leahy’s butt. #drones #drone

Yes, finally. Sure took him long enough to wait into political waters.

Just gave Jon Stewart his vagina costume, hope he wears it on @thedailyshow tonight! codepinkalert.org/article.php?id…

Keep those fingers crossed!

Jon Stewart hates killer #drones. And he looks so cute in a #CODEPINK t-shirt: codepinkalert.org/article.php?id…

Le swoon!

It takes a comedian to do some serious political work on #drones. Thanks, Jon Stewart, for your public service. codepinkalert.org/article.php?id…

Whatta guy.

Update:

Comedy Central told The Hollywood Reporter that the “e-alert” was not written by Stewart or anyone else at the network.
