Cindy Sheehan was arrested in front of the White House today in yet another publicity stunt. The media, of course, love it. Normally I would just sign and move along, but something caught my eye:
About 50 people were arrested in the first hour, with dozens of others waiting to be taken away. All cooperated with police.
Sgt. Scott Fear, spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said they would be charged with demonstrating without a permit, which is a misdemeanor.
Of all the places speech ought to be free, outside the White House seems like one of the most obvious. Instead, one of the country's most obnoxious moms was arrested for, uhh...
When they reached the front of the White House, dozens sat down ... and began singing and chanting "Stop the war now!"
