Woman interrupts Bush speech with Iraq chant

ST. LOUIS A woman yelling about Iraq managed to very briefly interrupt President Bush's speech on energy today in St. Louis.

As the president touted alternative fuels, a woman began chanting "Out of Iraq Now."

Bush continued with his speech as officials yanked the woman by her coat sleeve out of the audience. She began shouting louder, her fist in the air while yelling: "What are you doing? You're killing us."

The president continued speaking, and received extended applause.

"... continued speaking, and received extended applause ..."

I suppose the handlers don't want to piss off Dimson by having speak in empty reception halls, though ...

2. Extended applause?
She must have infiltrated the specially screened audience of bushbots. Poor woman - we may never hear of her again.

3. I've noticed the news has been quiet about his trip to STL
They mentioned something about it a little bit but they stopped. They also said he will be raising more money for that non-Talented bastard.

5. This woman is a thug.
How dare she come to this country and deny our President's first amendment rights?

6. I find it ironic that black police officers are marching her out.
Something seems so wrong with that picture.

12. That struck me too when I saw the picture, but
they have a job to do & they don't look overly enthused about it...

18. They probably walked her out slowly so she could get a few
more comments out. I wonder if they bought her a cup of coffee or steak and lobster after they left?

7. They didn't say anything about it on the news last night
I didn't have any idea the bastard* was even going to be in the state today, usually they'll crow about the chimpenfuher* even if he's going to be across the state.
What do you make of that?

11. I would send that woman some flowers and candy
if I weren't on a fixed income. If someone finds out her name I could at least send her a thank you.
