Alito Just Grateful No One Noticed He Was Only Wearing His Robe
Cindy Sheehan pops it like its hot
The Capitol has never really seemed like much of a t-shirt place to us, so we weren't particularly surprised when noted America-hater Cindy Sheehan and Helen Lovejoy-esque Professional Wife Beverly Young were both kicked out the State of the Union. Of course, the polite thing to do would've been for the concierge to invite them to take one of the jackets left behind at the coat check, but instead they just tossed Sheehan in jail and made Young cry. For the Hill Police, Supporting our Troops is only marginally less controversial than asking how many many more must die -- we can sorta see their point, actually, but it led us to wondering what other t-shirts could get one kicked out of a classy State function.
We've consulted with Capitol Police Chief Terrance W. Gainer, and here's what he had to say:
- "This one's a bit of a gray area. If you're sitting next to an elected official or a member of the cabinet, it will probably be considered a "protest," and you'll be escorted out. If you're seated next to a
woundedbattle-hardened soldier, you will be allowed to watch the speech, but will receive a strongly-worded letter from the Joint Chiefs of Staff."
- "I think the President was actually wearing this under his suit on Tuesday night. Part of the new Competition Initiative."
- "Yeah, that one'll get you in trouble. Very specific orders from very high up on that one."
- "I don't see a problem with this one."
