"Free Speech is not to be regulated like diseased cattle and impure butter. The audience that hissed yesterday may applaud today, even for the same performance."

I have not seen anything about this in the Old Media. Hmmmm. I wonder why that is? Could it be the wheels have come off of the Anti-war train for the Dems? I mean, there hasn't been anything from See BS, NBS, ABS, CNN, PMSNBC etc. Isn't this a major story? Shouldn't the country be talking about this? I am waiting for the nightly vigil stories carrying live coverage, much like every Old Media was doing when Cindy camped out in Crawford.
This is truly one of the funniest reads of the day. Make sure to read the whole thing. (h/t Michelle Malkin)
I think the added bonus is the little interview she gave to the Christian Science Monitor.
“I’ve had four or five months of people sitting outside my home, going into my garden in San Francisco and angering my neighbors,” Pelosi said at a gathering sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.
Pelosi added that the squatters have engaged in decidedly non-neighborly behavior like hanging their clothes from the trees; moving in sofas, chairs and other “permanent living facilities”; and, oddly, building a large Buddha on the sidewalk in front of her home. “You can just imagine my neighbors’ reactions to all of this,” she said. “And if they were poor, and they were sleeping on my sidewalk, they’d be arrested for loitering, but because they have ‘impeach Bush’ across their chest, it’s the First Amendment.”
Code Pink says:
Lelsie Angeline: “We’re here to occupy her house, to show here what it feels like to be occupied.”
So, she can't get rid of a bunch of people for exercising their Constitutional rights. Bet she thought it was pretty funny when they were all in Crawford huh? Can't arrest them for loitering because they have "impeach Bush " on them? Truly, this can only happen in San Fran Sicko.
I would love to know what Grandma Pelosi thinks of some dirty, stinky hippies who are basking in the freedom that me and my fellow soldiers are providing to her and these dirt-bags who are exercising their First Amendment rights? How do you like their free speech now Nancy?
Me, oh I like them alright. I like them just fine....
