On his Minneapolis radio show, Chris Baker stated of Sen. John McCain's speech at the Republican National Convention, "I'll tell you, though, in the speech -- the best part of the speech was when those Code Pink nuts -- another bunch that ought to have all their tubes tied. All right? I can't stand these Code Pink broads."

On the September 5 broadcast of his Minneapolis radio show, host Chris Baker asserted that the Code Pink protesters who interrupted Sen. John McCain's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention on September 4 "ought to have all their tubes tied." Baker stated of McCain's speech, "I'll tell you, though, in the speech -- the best part of the speech was when those Code Pink nuts -- another bunch that ought to have all their tubes tied. All right? I can't stand these Code Pink broads." Code Pink describes itself as "a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities."
