I’m not really a political person. I never watch the news –mostly because it’s always bad. And I rarely tune into televised presidential addresses –mostly because I know that watching them will actually make me dumber (being that I find it necessary to kill brain cells binge drinking after about the fifth time the leader of the free world mispronounces “nu-cu-lar”… but I digress.)
Yes, so I’m an idiot about politics, and predictably – because I didn’t want to be hung over on Hump Day – I avoided watching the State of the Union last night. This morning, however (and omg!), I did visit CNN.com for the recap.
Most of the crap Bush said was boring statecraft-speak. I’ll spare you my analysis on these matters. What I will talk about is the State of Cindy Sheehan, peace activist and enemy of the Haus of Bush.
It’s no secret that Cindy Sheehan has an axe to grind with El Presidente. After her son was killed in Iraq, Cindy made International news when, in August 2005, she held a lengthy demonstration at a peace camp outside GDub’s Texas ranch.
Last night, as a guest of Democrat, Lynne Woolsey of California, Cindy was invited to attend the State of the Union address… and she did, before she got arrested.
I think it’s because she messed with Texas, but the media reports that Sheehan was forcibly ejected from the
peanut State gallery because she refused to conceal her anti-war t-shirt.
The arresting officers called Cindy’s fashion faux pas “unlawful conduct.”
Now I read Celebrity Smack, so I am well aware of the need for Fashion Police.I mean, damn, after peeping Mommy Hilton’s nipples via see-through blouse, my first thought was to contact my Senator and demand that we enact a law forbidding old brods from exposing their not-so-fun-bags. But you know what? I never made that call, because it’s STUPID to punish someone for their attire… Even if their name is Tara Reid and their excessive show of greasy boobs gives you heartburn on a bi-weekly basis… but I digress (again!)
But yeah, Angel and I were talking about Cindy and her t-shirt, and we think it was very patriotic of Mrs. Sheehan to express her opinion at a political rally, Bush be damned.
This is still a free country, right? I don’t know. I’m getting kind of confused. Like I said earlier, me -I’m no political pundit.
All I know is, I used to think I lived in the United States of America, but as of late, I’m pretty sure I’m residing in the United States of What The F*-?!
Update: The AP reports today (Feb. 2) that from the Capitol Police Chief… Seems they weren’t supposed to arrest her for that t-shirt after all, imagine that!
Thanks for the heads up Dima ________________________________________________________
