Cindy Sheehan at the State of the Union Address

As most people probably have heard that Cindy Sheehan was arrested yesterday for a T-Shirt she unveiled just before before The State of the Union Address from President Bush. There are a range of opinions of this on both sides, I will list 5 blogs (blog sites not news sites, this will give you an idea of what a cross section of the people in the US might be thinking)
First here is a site that is anti-war and pro-Cindy showing her shirt at the SOTU address
Here we have Rob at unspace, he is against the reasons for going to war, but believes that “[T]he immediate pullout Sheehan is asking for would be suicidal” and thinks that what Cindy Sheehan did was stupid (Rob I hope I represented what you think correctly, if I failed to please let me know and I will correct it)
For the fun of it lets though Michael Moore in to the mix here, do I even need to state where he stands.
This looks like a site that is pro-war, and anti-Sheehan
I guess I should put my $0.02 in. First I think Cindy Sheehan is wrong. I was for the war, and I believe that we should stay till it is finished. I admit I voted for Bush. But I think what they did to Cindy Sheehan was wrong. Why? Was she making a commotion, I don’t think so, it is just a T-Shirt, now if she was shouting, or getting violent then remove her. But it is just a T-Shirt, I admit I think the T-shirt is stupid, but she does have the right to wear it. Unless there is a dress code for being there, and from what I have read there is no real dress code.
I will admit I am against those stupid “Free Speech Zones” that they now using, and sadly the SCOTUS has declared as constitutional. I am also against the stupid law that Pittsburgh has passed against Pro-Life protesters. It has 2 parts, Pro-Life protesters must stay x feet away from the doors of a abortion clinic, and must stay away from y feet from any one going into said clinic. The second half of this law will be shot down if it gets to the SCOTUS why do I say that, well if you check that link given you will find that the SCOTUS has in the past voted 8-1 (pre-Roberts) to struck down the the floating buffer zone. This was decided on 02/19/1997 and I believe that was the Clinton court.

    I believe Ms. Sheehan was escorted out because there is a rule in place regarding political related paraphernalia in the building. First reports had Ms. Sheehan as being arrested. She was not. She was detained until the SOTU Address was over.
