CNN: Sheehan Arrested at Capitol

It’s the cartoonish antics of anti-war activists that undermine the legitimate arguments against American imperialism, especially in the Middle East. I think it was Dan Dannett who said, “there’s nothing I dislike more than a bad argument for a point of view I hold dear.”

Sheehan could have taken a much more dignified approach and sent a much stronger message by just sitting in the well of the House throughout the speech, quietly. Instead, she has apparently pulled an idiotic shenanigan and will miss the speech.

  1. Wearing a shirt is an idiotic shenanigan? I agree that there is a line of decorum to be adhered to in the hall, but a wee bit of an over-reaction I think.

  2. well when i wrote that i had limited information. Doesn’t seem like it was an idiotic shenanigan. And, the capitol police have apologized for overstepping their bounds here.. however, my core point remains – that she made a dumb choice.. she would have been much more effective just sitting there and soaking up the reaction shots from the cameras as the President spoke.

  3. I tend to agree with you that she would have been a more effective presence sitting there stone faced.
