Cindy Sheehan Frogmarched Out of The Gallery


For wearing an anti-war t-shirt that read “2,245 Dead — How Many More??”

Personally, I think the fuchsia number Margaret Spellings rocked on the front row of the floor was far more offensive. Talk about an attention whore!

While plenty of people, right and left, will write Sheehan off as a nut (as usual), she sure managed to get some kind of message across tonight, hitting the headlines before the Bush speech even started. Her promised campaign of civil disobedience appears to be proceeding.

From AmericaBlog: “Did you know that in 1971, the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional to arrest a man who wore a “F— the Draft” T-shirt into the courthouse? (Cohen v. California, you can look it up.) So now Alito’s on the court for 45 minutes and your civil liberties are already going down the toilet. You were warned.”

And a response from Cyd at The Dooryard.
