shocked by State of the Union tshirts

Cindy Sheehan, mother of a U.S. soldier killed in
Iraq, says she barely had one arm out of her coat when a security officer pounced on her before the president's state of the union address - for having a war-related slogan on her T-shirt.


The slogan on her T-shirt - "2245 Dead. How many more?" - was a reference to the number of American soldiers killed in Iraq, she explained.


Beverly Young, wife of Representative C.W. Bill Young (news, bio, voting record) of Florida - chairman of the House Defence Appropriations subcommittee - was removed from the gallery because she was wearing a T-shirt that read, "Support the Troops - Defending Our Freedom."

I am shocked.
I am shocked that grown women wore tshirts to a formal event.
What are you, like 12 years old?

You don't think maybe The State of the Union speech from The President of the United States merits maybe something dressier than a tshirt?

You do realize that adults did not traditionally consider their bodies as being walking billboards for their personal beliefs?

You know what they should sell? Bumper stickers for your ass.
They would go like hotcakes in the US. Bum-per stickers they could call them.

World's least classy, least adult society.
