With an eye toward domestic terrorism, this anti-abortion wacko (disguised in a business suit) grabbed the floor this morning before being thrown out of day 1 of the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. (With that countenance, Code Pink you’re not.)

It’s interesting visually, by the way, it’s a female cop (with another on the way) giving our friend the toss.
