I hate to be suspicious...
Cindy Sheehan is arrested and held for four hours on a bogus misdemeanor charge for having an anti-war t-shirt.
Then Beverly Young, wife of Florida Representative Bill Young (a Republican) is "asked to leave" for having a "support our troops" shirt.
What's the timing of these two incidents? Enough for a few phone calls to be made, "who's willing to leave a boring speech to help insulate the President from criticism? You'll have to wear a t-shirt...".
I'm not accusing anyone. I don't have the facts. It could be that Mrs. Young was asked to leave first, before Cindy Sheehan was known to be present. But sometimes... sometimes things are awfully convenient.
