Cindy Sheehan arrested for wearing anti-war T-shirt at State of the Union address.
"She was asked to cover it up. She did not," said Sgt. Kimberly Schneider, U.S. Capitol Police spokeswoman. The arrest was for unlawful conduct, a misdemeanor, and it carries a maximim sentence of one year. Reports that she had also unfurled an anti-war banner are false.
Police handcuffed Sheehan and removed her from the gallery before Bush arrived.
"I'm proud that Cindy's my guest tonight," said Bay area Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey after giving Sheehan a gallery pass two hours before the event. "She has made a difference in the debate to bring our troops home from Iraq."
Did you watch the speech? Bush says, "America is addicted to oil, which is often imported from unstable parts of the world."
Total V8 moment, huh?
But where did he come up with this?
What, is Bush reading Kurt Vonnegut?
Of course, the president didn't mean it literally.
