Taking Cues From Code Pink

As a pro-lifer, I condemn the tactic of random pro-lifers -- even Norma "Roe" McCovey -- disrupting the Senate hearings for Judge Sonia Sotomayor by yelling things out from the gallery. But what mystifies me is how much support this tactic seems to have, as well as the belief that if you don't support this tactic, You Can't Be Pro-Life.

This is straight out of the ultra-lefty Code Pink's textbook, or Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. Why should we be emulating them? Have they won more people to their cause? Why do we believe our side will accomplish anything more? Whose minds will be changed? The marches we have, for example, show a lot more strength than random misguided idiots (there, I've said it) yelling from a Senate gallery, even if the MSM ignores the marches.

I concede Judge Sotomayor will probably rule from a pro-choice position, but the reasons to oppose her are more obvious (her racial bias and her disbelief in the 2nd Amendment).
