The Return of the Truth Truck
ThinkProgress does a quick wrap of yesterday’s “Code Red” protest that leaves out some context.
In the morning, there was also a vehicle driving around Capitol Hill with a large “Kill the Bill” sign and a “Merry Christmas” banner (as well as a crossed-out photograph of two men kissing).
That vehicle was the “Truth Truck” driven around D.C. almost every day by one of Randall Terry’s pro-life activists. As I reported in November, Terry has made a comeback of late, having relocated to the D.C. suburbs and brought his street theater to every anti-Obama event of serious size — Terry was on the hill yesterday dressed as the grim reaper, whipping actors playing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who were wearing blood-stained, torn shirts. Just clearing the record here — the truck had nothing to do with the organizers of the event.
