2. Those women are heroes
Palin should never be allowed to be heard. Shout her down everywhere she campaigns.

3. I don't blame them for removing a disruptor. I would want the same to be done
at the Dem convention. I have no problem with protesting, but not inside the conventions when the speakers are speaking. Bad timing IMO.

11. TRUE HEROES
If even 1/10 of Democrats had the courage that these ladies do, Bush and his crew would be rotting in prison and the US would be a beloved and respected member of the international community.

Too bad so many otherwise great Democrats like to cloak the shame of their own personal cowardice behind the veil of promoting law and order.

12. Wait a minute, Aren't these women?
They can't be protesting. After all palin is a woman and that makes her the candidate for all women. Right.

Wait a minute! I'm a woman. What am I doing here at a Democratic message board. I've got to go sign up at free republic or some other republican site. I must follow the call. All people that are of the female persuasion must follow their appointed leader, sarah palin. We must answer the call of woman.

I am woman...hear me roar...I am Democrat no more...I am a hunter of bear...a drinker of beer....and kiss republican rear.

:sarcasm: BAD :sarcasm: BUT :sarcasm: JUST THE SAME!

15. I wonder how they were able to get in?
I wonder if a disgruntled Repug got them in or if the media helped them get access. :shrug:

I would've been scared to death to be in that crowd of maniacs myself. They're lucky they weren't torn to pieces and then eaten by Palin.

16. My Guess: RNC admins desperately seeking women for audience
They were shown stuffing the floor with women prior to the sarcastic shrill idiot's speech.
