The State of the Union is the President's speech, not the media whore's.

Sigh. Not for CNN viewers.

There is a code of conduct for sitting in the gallery. And it's not just on SOTU night.

Done, but I can't believe they are even talking about it. It was the State Of The Union Address, it is NOT a forum for protest.

What's this about a tee-shirt being the reason she was removed from the House chambers. Initial reports last night said she had attempted to unfurl some kind of anti-war banner. Since unfurling a banner over the balcony of the House chambers is CLEARLY inappropriate behavior no matter who you are, I guess that act wouldn't allow the MSM to make a "1st Amendment issue" out of it.

Thus, overnight, history is revised so that the tee-shirt is the reason she was removed.

I used to think that "initial" news reports were usually less accurate than the "full" reports which come later, after the dust had settled on an issue or event. I no longer believe that. I now think the intial reports are often the closest to the truth, because they occur before the MSM filtering machine has had a chance to spin the story to match their strongly held beliefs or positions.

Remember when the two security guards on the Capitol steps got killed by someone half as crazed as Sheehan. There is no protesting in the building. No matter how big a sh*ithead youi are.

The poll might be mnisleading to begin with. According to CNN she had a banner folded up on her lap that she was going to unfurl. They said nothing about a T-shirt.

frankly I think she should still be in jail from the LAST time she was arrested, and that lunatic shouldn't be allowed within 1000 yards of the President.

She may have free speech but the State of the Union address is a constitutionally mandated event and she has no right to interrupt the event or to disturb the peace.

She certainly has the earmarks of other presidential assasins/would be assasines. She really is a very disturbed woman. Think her "file" is as fat as Senator Kerry's by now?

Do you agree with the decision by Capitol Police to remove activist Cindy Sheehan from the gallery at the president's State of the Union speech because she was wearing a T-shirt with an antiwar slogan?

Yes, such behavior is not allowed in that setting and is inappropriate.
No, she was a legitimately invited guest and deserves to have her right to free speech honored.

This is like most other polls; using leading questions following biased and possibly wrong information. I've seen plenty of t-shirts with slogans around the Capital. There was something else going on.
I refuse to honor their poll with a vote.

I posted this on another thread earlier when it first happened

Sorry but that is just wrong.Wearing a t shirt is protected by the first amendment and its just as wrong to arrest her for that as it was for Clinton to have FReeper arrested for holding signs up as clintons motorcade passed by and for having those two protesters arrested for saying you suck.

I voted no on the poll btw

Didn't you get the memo? It's only free speech when it doesn't contradict government policy. Just ask any "conservative" here.

Of course, that changes when the Democrats are in charge.

She started to get VOCAL. It wasn't her T-Shirt.
"Thus far, only the Washington Post has revealed, “She was also vocal, said U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance W. Gainer, and after she ignored instructions to close her jacket and quiet down, she was led out and arrested. Demonstrating in the House gallery is prohibited.” (Emphasis added.)"

http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=21133

The truth is not just the T-Shirt. She opened her mouth prematurely, as she was clearly there to heckle the POTUS, and wrecked Code Pinks's plans.

Exactly, she was already starting to get in people's faces and yell. CSPAN cut to her right before they took her out and she wasn't a little peaceful Mrs. Butterworth. She was the typical loud and annoying hippie.

Considering the coverage, I'm not surprised. Many reasonable people would say 'why couldn't she wear a t-shirt'? not knowing that she also raised hell.

If a Freeper held up a political protest sign while the president was making the State of The Union Speech, they'd be removed, too. This is a rule of the chamber, attendance is by invitation only. Outside, no problemo.

I objected to that too. I think there's a whitewash in progress.

Now that's inappropriate, I don't care who ya are! ;-)

If she was interrupting the speech, she got what she deserved. If it was just the shirt, I can't agree with the cops decision.

Of course, I also think Cindy Jihad should be tried for treason and shot... but that is not the point.

Listening to Tony Snow, a congressman's wife had a pro-troop T-shirt and was asked to leave as well. AND SHE DID. No fuss. No arrest.
