No, McCain! Yer doin' it wrong.

GOOD LORD Keith Olbermann has turned into a kind of lesbianish woman. No one warned me.

Also...the meanest nun in my school (who ran the library) was a trained democracy superhero? Huh.

It's almost like the neocons aren't planning for there to be a civilization around much longer for them to get their comeuppance in.

That is Rachel Maddow. She IS a lesbian, and she is adorable and awesome.

Cop is a fucking idiot; exactly WHAT could be possibly cite her/arrest her for?
RomancingTrain
Slander and libel.

Cops hears from what he believes to be secret service (despite the fact that it's just McCain campaign staff), and cop does what he's told.

I liked her point about, "Why would a Republican who voted for Bush find this offensive?" :)

panipuri
unfortunately if you did not notice you really don't have the right in this country to protest etc in most places without a permit.

and also, as was noticeable from the last presidential election, out side the Republic National Convention there were "free speech zones" where protesters were required to be. like areas 124023432 million feet from the actual place.

and of course there was the whole FBI spying on those radical hippie organizations before the conventions because I mean a bunch of dread locked, anti-showering, patchouli oil wearing peacenicks = terrorists

"Why would a Republican who voted for Bush find this offensive?"

Because of Bush's abysmal approval rating.

If McCain had his way he'd be able to send out jackbooted death squads to liquidate people like her under the pretext of being "probable VC sympathizer".

Oh no! Doctor Who's Grandma!

You know as sad as it is to see someone who could be McCain's daughter thrown out for this, for me it's mainly embarrassing. The American brand of freedom has always been pretty weak compared to others', and now this has become pretty regular.

So in seeking to hide a sign that says "Bush=McCain" McCain becomes even more like Bush. Delicious.

And that area is a covered open air pedestrian walkway between the Denver Center for Performing Arts and a parking garage and other storefronts. It is an open, public area 24 hours a day.

More republicans stomping over peoples rights. What a surprise!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's funny how so-called 'conservatives', who should ostensibly be for a smaller government, are voting for people who keep eroding their rights and bloating the power of government.
Hay Belly
I don't understand it, as all I see are conservatives wanting to keep a stranglehold on what people can or can't do. Marriage be about love? Forget it! Women having reproductive rights? No way! Stomp on them! Shut them up, herd them into churches and lock the doors.

Caminante Nocturno
The Republican party is the party of low self-esteem.

I actually can't wait for the court date. I hope it makes the news, because that cop was just dumb as a post.
glasseye
I'm sure the republican spin machine will convince the rest of America that she was a dangerous terrorist and had to be locked up for our safety.

Ersatz
I predict: a fine for trespassing knocked down to plus court costs. They asked her to leave, she didn't, until police officers escorted her away.
The "partially paid for by your tax dollars" and content of the sign are all distracting side issues that have nothing to do with her arrest. They most likely reserve the right to not let you bring in a sign -- like a ballpark -- and if you're not there to go into the town hall, you're not allowed to loiter outside the venue at all.

Your tax dollars pay for schools, stand outside one with a protest sign and see how long you last.

Cleaner82
Yeah, the technicalities of private property law aren't nessecarily on her side here, but it was nevertheless in poor form to arrest the old lady and drag her away for carrying a sign outside the 'open town hall meeting'. Every now and again, irregardless of the letter of the law, people are allowed to use their brains.

Xenocide
Rachel and friend are talking about how this is a PR disaster for McCain, but I haven't seen this reported ANYWHERE else. Am I just asleep on this one or is the media ignoring it?
Cleaner82
They have swung around to McCain now, I guess it's his turn after Obama to have his ass kissed. The media really is deeply unprofessional and does not do its job.

j lzrd / swift idiot
YEAH!! That'll teach the old cunt to shout "FIRE!" in a crowded theatre!

No seriously though, fuck you apologists and defenders of the new fascism. You're the cancer eating away at the bone marrow of a once proud nation.
phalsebob
It's too bad she didn't have a gun. Then she could get the NRA to defend her.
