Dress Code


Who wears t-shirts to the State of the Union address?

Cindy Sheehan, and the wife of Florida Rep. Bill Young. Both were ejected by Capitol police.

And what a lame way to go. I thought Sheehan would have waited to cause a spectacle. She might have jumped out of the balcony Tosca-style yelling, "Bush killed my son!" And as she lay injured on the floor of the senate, she would have smiled at the camera and said, "Senator Feinstein - I'm coming for you, you sell out... someone get Jessee Jackson - this is the photo op of the century..."

Instead she decides to wear a t-shirt that said "2,245 Dead. How many more."

A more appropriate shirt would have been this.


Read and see a picture of Ms. Sheehan cavorting with President Chávez of Venezuela and read some commentary on my blog, Vivificat!

Cindy Sheehan Meets Latin America's New Macho Máximo.


Something's wrong with the character encoding that filters out international characters. To clarify:

Teófilo = "Teofilo" with an accent mark on the first "o".

Chávez = "Chavez" with an accent mark on the first "a", as in President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela.

Máximo = "maximo" with an accent mark on the "a"

Sorry about the mess.


I don't get why the Capitol Police are apologizing to the two ladies: signs are prohibited in the gallery: does it matter that the sign is on your clothing?
