Another SOTU…

So, Bush held his State of the Union address yesterday. I am listening to it right now, mainly because “you have to” if you follow US politics. I cannot really stand all the rounds of applause for a smirking W, so I understand what TPM is saying.

But anyway, the big happening was the arrest of a woman called Cindy Sheehan right before the speech. Her crime: wearing a t-shirt with an anti-war message.

Via AMERICAblog I read the following:
“Did you know that in 1971, the Supreme Court said it was unconstitutional to arrest a man who wore a "F--- the Draft" T-shirt into the courthouse? (Cohen v. California, you can look it up.) So now Alito's on the court for 45 minutes and your civil liberties are already going down the toilet. You were warned.”
Or like The Hives would have said: “Hate to say I told you so".
