Not only have they released and appologised to Cindy Sheehan for violating her rights, they have also appologised to Beverly Young, wife of Bob Young (R, FL) for removing her for wearing a "Support our Troops" t-shirt. Young has demanded that Hill Police undergo sensitivity training and the department has agreed to review its actions.

I guess they dropped the charges against Sheehan, too. What was it they took her in for? Oh yeah, "Aggravated Dumbass". I think that's a felony in some states!  highfive

As usual, the Elephant only reports on one side. Maybe Mrs. Young was charged with being an aggrivated bitch, MAF. Oh, that ruins the image you want, of only one of them being idiots. I see.

You're obsession with Sheehan is as bad as her behavior.

Other than that, not all GOPers agree with your stance on many things, and almost all Democrats disagree with you. Given the population spread of the country, that map is at the very least very flawed.

I'm curious how many people have worn this shirt in Texas or other red state and lived to tell about it.

It's this kind of holier-than-thou attitude that makes democrats more and more unelectable.

Hey pal, you need to read the rest of my post. StuckinMAF's post was deleted before you read it. There is another shirt that states things in an opposite way. How about you step down off your holier than thou perch and realize that you made a mistake

Puhleeez, Charles. The holier-than-thou attitude is the righties telling people who oppose the war that they're guilty somehow of giving aid and comfort to the terrorists. The holier-than-thou is "if you're not with us, you're against us." It's the arrogance that somehow, as some have said, that Bush was appointed by God.

Nothing arrogant about opposing the war. What it is, Charles, is a MAJORITY.

 checkmark  I agree.

Regardless of my political views, I don't think that any T-shirts like those should be allowed on the Hill, especially during the State of the Union Address. Its more of an issue with manners rather than what the shirts actually say.

But, no one needed to be arrested for it and I think the police did the right thing here.

Amen. But I guess it's a sin to dare protest against Bush's Holy and Just war in Iraq. I'm actually surprised some "red states" haven't outlawed such protest.  Wink

I don't care about protesting Bush. But to walk around Houston with a t-shirt calling everyone in sight a "complete moron" is asking for what is commonly known as an "ass-whoopin'"

I do wish that they didn't arrest Sheehan. I wish, in turn, that Sheehan would have then stood up every 2 minutes and swore at Bush at the SOTU speech.

I wish Dean, Pelosi, Kennedy, Schumer, and Kerry would be on TV EVEN MORE than they are now.

Nothing succeeds in politics like an opponent who both loves the camera and who is an ass in front of it.

In the 90's, I'm sure Clinton loved that Gingrich and Dole were on TV everyday from the House and Senate, respectively. It made Bill look in charge and in command of the nation.

By the way, when did that Gingrich get to be an "elder statesman" anyway? He should save some of his money and all of us our time and not run in 2008. He ain't going anywhere, just like Kerry and Gore.

When you look at the electoral map on a county by county basis, it sure seems like there are lot more "morons" than "intelligent" democrats.
