What happened to Cindy Sheehan or how Cindy lost her son and all she got for it was the bum's rush out of the Capital

Gold Star mom Cindy Sheehan was invited by a Democrat to attend the fiction reading we all refer to as the State of the Union Address. While she was sitting down and taking off her jacket after a rush up stairs to her seat, she was manhandled by a guard yelling "protestor" as he dragged her out of the room. (Has the Maplewood Police trainer been moonlighting in DC?) The problem? She had a shirt on with the number of Americans who have given their lives so that Iraqis could have freedom of speech, among other things. I guess just like universal health care, that little "perk" is reserved for Iraquis and others in countries we "support"

Ms. Sheehan gives her account of what happened in this article on Truthout.

Thanks Cindy for telling the truth. Too bad our journalists can't learn a thing or two from you.
