1. it would be political suicide to have them hauled off.
but they are disorderly and they should be hauled off.

3. the MSM will roast any congresscritter on a spit that does so.
and rightfully so. The film will be edited and twisted and will hit the internet tubes and airwaves within 5 seconds. The truth won't matter after that. About all they CAN do, IMHO, is cancel the event if it looks like it might be a threat to public safety.

4. Bush had people arrested all the time. No double standard in media there.

6. wasn't it the film Fahrenheit 9/11
That showed a guy talking about how he didn't like bush in a gym and was paid a visit by secret service,

Now the tbaggers do this and no arrests Why?

9. The cops didn't like Gates
"Disorderly conduct" = excuse for cops to lock you up if they don't like you.

Its more about the police than the behavior itself.

12. It has to do with being "uppity," don't you know?
Fact is I'm not sure (and they're not sure) whether or not arresting them for this behavior won't give them even more reason to continue it. They're looking for attention, and to make of themselves a martyr to the cause. Flaming idiots.
