26. Are you deliberately misreading what was just said?

"She sabotaged a beloved American who was speaking about protecting children. She looked foolish."

No one said that wanting equality is foolish.

Those of us who found Sturtz' behavior to be objectionable would feel the same way if she'd interrupted Michelle to make demands about environmental concerns, social security, the war in Afghanistan - or anything else. It was her behavior that was out of line, NOT the issue she was demanding to have addressed.

As for schooling people about their need to 'really, really understand what Michelle was doing', I don't think it's news to anyone that she would be fundraising at a fundraiser. That was the point of the event, and Michelle was invited to speak because she's a big draw.

People paid to attend in order to hear Michelle speak, not to hear what Ms. Sturtz had to say, whether it was on GLBT issues, or any other issue.
