My sources tell me that Cindy Sheehan managed to get herself arrested before the speech started.

Atta girl! I can’t wait for the fawning paeans to the ‘Grief Mom’ at DU and DKOS.

I really am not watching- I am on a diet and can’t drink, and I need beverages when Bush speaks for extended periods. Place your SOTU commentary her, and I will check up on it later.

    Apparently, Bush thinks we must renew the Patriot Act so that we can fight organized crime and drug trafficing. Na, there’s no mission creep occurring here…

    Now there’s lots of applause for the king’s president’s stated desire to continue to spy on Americans. He’s so pleased that he’s smirking. Hillary is smirking, too, probably because she knows that she’d be more than happy to authorize the same sort of illegal surveilance if she were queen President.

    A fight just broke out when the Democrats applauded the fact that SS reform did not pass. OK, not really, but it would have made things much more interesting.

    Wow, just a moment ago, Bush was leg-humping immigrant labor, and now he’s calling for aggressive enforcement and renouncing amnesty programs.

    I don’t get it. Why mention Cindy Sheehan at all? She’s the mother of a soldier who died in Iraq. That’s all I know about her, and frankly, all I want to know about her. Having lost her son gives her a right to have an opinion, and whether I agree with her opinion or not is irrelevant. (For the record, I’ve never talked to her to find out her opinion, so I have no idea whether I’d agree with it or not… and no, I’m not going to take some 3rd party’s word about what her opinion is).

    John mentioned left-wing circular firing squads. What about right-wing circle jerks? Every time you guys try to run down the mother of a deceased veteran, it makes right wingers look bad. But boy, you guys sure seem to have fun jerking off in a circle… “Cindy Sheehan!” “Hahahaha!” “Bwahahahah!” “Cindy Sheehan!” “ROFL!” Sorry to bring the bad news to you, but making fun of grieving mothers, no matter how laughable their opinion is, is not the way to win friends and influence people. It just makes people think you’re a bunch of jerks.

    But what the hey, you guys never listen to Libertarians anyhow, except to confuse us with liberals… so keep on circle-jerking away. “Cindy Sheehan!” “Hahahahah!”. Sheesh.

    Kirk Spencer says:

    I’m waiting for full details, but for what’s known now:

    Sheehan was invited by Rep Lynn Woolsey (D-CA). She sat down and took off her jacket, and allegedly was wearing a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan. Capitol hill police asked her to put the jacket back on (allegedly telling her such displays were not allowed), to which she made no response. At that point they arrested her, cuffed her, and marched her out of the gallery before the president arrived. The charge is the misdemeanor “demonstrating in the capitol building”.

    um… I am not an attorney, I do not know if that’s going to stand. I suspect it’s skirting the edge – and if I were her defense attorney I’d be looking for signs or shirts that were pro-Bush at the same event for which the bearers suffered no consequences. BUT, she has a history of demonstrating, and though she said before the speech that since she was the guest of a congresswoman she wasn’t planning to do anything but listen the t-shirt could have been considered provocative.

    That said, it won’t change any minds either way. Heck, I’ll bet that most anti-Bushers will assume that she didn’t even have the t-shirt, while most anti-Sheehans will assume she started waving signs and yelling. And neither side will care that they’re wrong.

    Ooooooh! Miniature Chuck Norri! Norri is the plural of Norris, yes?

    Maybe they’re Chuck Norris Centaurs!

    Clearly, to combat those fighting Norri, we must institute our very own Liger Defense Corps

    Are you all still mad from when I said USC should’ve beat Texas?

    Those evil bastards. I’m glad President Bush is heading off this dire threat. Oh no. What if they are Dire Chuck Norris Centaurs? We’re doomed! DOOMED!

    Ross says:

    Ok, new rule, NO ONE is allowed to use MLK Jr. to justify a war.
    Anyways, I have an 8 AM class tommorow, and I thought “well, if I only take a sip each time he lies, I should be ok for tommorow. I mean, there is only so much BS one can fit into a single speech”. Needless to say, I’m drunk enough to post on BJ for the first time in about 6 months, so, we’ll see how class goes tommorow.

    Don’t worry ppGaz, I came in late and only saw about twenty minutes of it. And I was facing AWAY from the screen most of the time…

    How did the terrorists get Chuck Norris DNA anyway…was it from the set of Missing in Action?

    Fine…fuck me. Is this some sort of aesthetic argument on how anger towards the PTB should be expressed? Righteous Indignation vs. Drunken Snark?

    Stormy70 Says:

    We’re just discussing the President’s bold vision. I truly fear the day the terrorists create a human hybrid to destroy the Brooklyn Bridge with blow torches.

    How did the terrorists get Chuck Norris DNA anyway…was it from the set of Missing in Action?

    Chuck Norris doesn’t say “who’s your daddy”, because he knows the answer.

    It’s the only rational response to “blow me.”

    Feel free to withdraw the invitation, as desperately as you might actually want it.

    Pb says:

    Oh yeah John, that’s a fucking riot. Apparently free speech is a goddamned crime now–if your name is Cindy Sheehan. Thanks for helping shred the Constitution, asshole.

    yet another jeff says:

    ppGaz

    Sorry, a figure of speech more than an invitation. I meant to say something along the lines of “spare me the didactic bit about bombing in war”, but “blow me” seemed temptingly concise.

  132. 132
    Perry Como says:

    But really, this thread is about Cindy Sheehan and her disruptive behavior in the Capitol Building. It is downright unAmerican to wear a t-shirt with the number of dead US soldiers on it to the State of the Union address. She might as well have worn a turban that said “I LOVE TERRORISTS!”

  133. 133
    yet another jeff says:

    I don’t think that would work as a turban. The mechanics of turban tying really prevent any sort of legible slogans.

  134. 134
    ppGaz says:

    Sorry, a figure of speech

    Ah, then I withdraw my blast. You are a gentleman and scholar.

    Now, back to blasting Sheehan! That stupid broad is a hoot, isn’t she? Yeee – dogies!

  135. 135
    Par R says:

    Sheehan is rather good at following Rove’s instructions.

    It seemed to me that Diane Feinstein was none too thrilled when a reporter told her that Sheehan had received her ticket for the chamber from a California congresswoman, undoubtedly another wacko in the Sheehan mold.

    Another terrorist uncovered! I hope the NSA is listening. It’s the only way I feel safe.

    Laura says:

    I’m probably the only one around here who watches the Gilmore Girls, but one of the things I love about the show are the constant lefty political quips that likely go over many viewers’ heads. For the first couple years of the series, Al Gore was the president. I enjoyed the denial immensely. And tonight, they just had a scene where the main character was letting her friend take her dog overnight to determine if she was a “dog person.” The main character was putting the leash on the dog while he wasn’t watching. Her friend asked her why, and she said, “like most Americans, he doesn’t mind giving up his freedom as long as he doesn’t notice it happening.” Maybe you had to see it to enjoy it. But all the little digs at Bush are part of the show’s charm. Anyway, that’s my contribution tonight. I didn’t watch the SOTU. Can’t handle it. Or him, I should say.

  138. 138
    yet another jeff says:

    Obviously you’re not drinking enough, Laura.

    Perry Como…OF COURSE the NSA is listening….

  139. 139
    MAX HATS says:

    Bush is kicking the Dems ass on this NSA thing. Why do the Dems want to protect people on Al Qaeda’s speed dial list? Why? This is effective bully-pulpiting which will send his political enemies into a tizzy.

    Because democrats, by and large, believe this is a nation of laws and not of men.

    chefrad says:

    Atlas Shrugged said Sheehan was “about to unfurl” a “girormous” banner, which presumably is less threatening to America than unleashing a “fantabulous” harange.

    A-S blamed her error on “live blogging” the event. Right. I remember when she saw the sniper of the roof at Kent State, throwing aluminum tubes down on the grassy knoll.
