Overreacting a Bit 

By far the most significant part of President Bush's address: 'Peace mom' cuffed in House chambers

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Peace activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Tuesday in the House chambers after she unfurled an anti-war banner just minutes before President Bush gave his State of the Union address.

Capitol police arrested Sheehan and questioned her for about an hour in a separate area of the House, a senior House official said.

What could they have wanted to question her about for that length of time? Aren't they familiar with her views?

Oh, not a banner. A t-shirt! According to Yahoo.com: "Schneider said Sheehan had worn a T-shirt with an anti-war slogan to the speech and covered it up until she took her seat. Police warned her that such displays were not allowed, but she did not respond, the spokeswoman said." That changes eveything. I really hate some t-shirts with their inappropriate, know-it-all slogans.

It's interesting that the police initially mistook her t-shirt for a banner though. Perhaps it was an extra-large t-shirt. Or maybe they said, "It might look like a little t-shirt to you ... to me it's like a mountain, a vast bowl of pus!"
