A BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT NEWS ALERT

We first came across the "mail panties to John Boehner until he cries and stops trying to defund Planned Parenthood" campaign when we saw this entry on Facebook:

Mail a Million Panties to John Boehner for Women's Reproductive Rights is going viral. Check it out on Facebook. I bought undies today and mailed them. They are white with BLACK hearts. Men can send underwear, too. They must be clean.This is a "mass piece of performance art" according to the site. Speaker of the House, John Boehner, H-232 The Capitol, Washington DC 20515

Then we found this article about the origin of the campaign on MyNorthwest.com. It attributes the idea to New Orleans artist Linda Morgan Smith, who explained:
That sounds real mature.

The women's shelters all around DC will be thankful to Boehner for all the donations.
