GOPer wife told to leave SOTU, Cindy Sheehan arrested

New SOTU dress code banning shirts with words kept secret from attendees. Even "very conservative shirts" now verboten.

Even when violating the First Amendment, jackbooted fascist thugs treat Dems and their own people differently.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The wife of a senior House of Representatives Republican was told to leave the House chamber during President George W. Bush's State of the Union speech for for wearing a shirt bearing words of support for U.S. troops.

"Shame, shame," Rep. Bill Young of Florida said on the House floor on Wednesday, condemning the treatment of his wife Beverly by the U.S. Capitol Police.

"She was ordered to leave the gallery, because she was doing ... what the president said we should all do," Young said. "She had on this shirt. A very conservative shirt, long sleeves, high neck, but it says support our troops."

Sheehan, on the other hand, says she wasn't told to cover up her shirt or told to leave, was just dragged out in cuffs.
