So Cindy "I'm too busy parading around on television to actually grieve for my dead son" Sheehan was kicked out of the State of the Union speech. She was wearing a t-shirt that said "2,245 Dead. How many more?" You know what? I'm glad she was kicked out. She has no class at all. Even if you don't respect the president or his policies, you should respect the office and the ceremony that is the State of the Union. Going in there with a t-shirt that obviously is going to stir up controversy is selfish and just plain rude.

I don't want to hear any of this "free speech" crap either. She can wear whatever she wants on her own time. But not as an invited guest to a formal event. If it's legal for 7-Eleven to deny you service for walking in barefoot, I think it's only fair that the Congress can keep a misguided attention whore outside of their chambers. That's right, you heard me.

You can't expect me to believe that you don't think the administration invited her expressly to use the controversy she'd stir up to their advantage?

And yeah, all that free speech stuff is such garbage - why don't we just toss it out along with the rest of the Constitution? Oh, wait, we already have.
And one more thing: if the president can't respect our civil liberties or even basic human rights (not to mention the lives of not only American citizens but people around the world), then why the h-e-double-hockey-sticks should we respect his office? Not that we must stoop to his level but give me a break, a t-shirt is a far cry from unjustified war.
Suppose she showed up wearing a "God Hates Fags" t-shirt. Would you support her free speech then? I stand by my position.
Go Lisa!!!! Well said.
I will be concise: BOOOOOOO!!!!!
Lisa roolz.

Mike, she was ARRESTED.
Not just escorted out.
That's a bit much.
Hey, guys. Easy on the woman. After all, she could have worn this shirt...
If she had worn a "God Hates Fags" shirt I totally would have supported her right to do so under the 5th amendment. However, I doubt she would have been thrown out by Bush considering he fully supports such a conservative viewpoint.
Well, Mike. You certainly got us all stirred up on this one!

You say that Cindy is “too busy parading around to grieve for her son”. You are still young yet, and may not have learned that there are many ways to grieve ... and many stages that humans go through when they mourn.

You may think it is inappropriate of Cindy Sheehan to have shown up at the State of the Union Address wearing a T-shirt which expressed an anti-war message. I may have been too afraid to do such a thing, but I cannot blame this mother, who lost her son in an illegal and unjustified war, for doing so.

It would be nice if everyone played nice, but war is not nice, and certainly those in this administration did not play nice when Bill Clinton was in office. Nor did they ‘play nice’ during the last two elections.

If you haven’t yet read the book; “On Death and Dying” by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, it would be worth your time.

Some day, I would love to share all the differing ways I have mourned, and all the various ways I have seen people deal with loss. So, you may not like how Cindy Sheehan is dealing with her suffering, but make no mistake, she is grieving!
