Who didn’t know that Cindy Sheehan would be her usual lunatic self when invited to the State of the Union?
Cindy Sheehan said she will be part of the live audience during the president’s State of the Union speech to congress Tuesday.
Bay Area Congresswoman Lynn Woosley gave anti-war activist a gallery pass late Tuesday, just hours before the planned State of the Union speech. Sheehan was in Washington to protest the president during his national address, but then came word she was invited to see the speech live.
A spokesman for Sheehan says she decided to accept the invitation two hours prior to the speech. The spokesman also said that Sheehan will be respectful and listen to the address because she is a guest of a member of congress.
Peace activist Cindy Sheehan was arrested Tuesday in the House chamber after she unfurled an anti-war banner before President Bush’s State of the Union address.
Update: Call in number is 866-884-8255 (TALK).

Welcome Justice Alito:
The voting list is here.
Why does the question ‘are you a Jew?’ bug me so much more than ‘are you Jewish?’
My personal favorite is this not at all inciteful piece in a UAE newspaper titled ‘Deal with Danish offenders strongly’.

The Republican Majority for Choice has released a statement supporting Lincoln Chaffee’s decision to vote against confirming Alito.
Here is the comment:
The Republican Majority for Choice is proud to stand with Senator Lincoln Chafee in opposition to the confirmation of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. We strongly agree with Senator Chafee that Judge Alito’s consistently anti-choice record simply cannot be ignored. Furthermore, after Judge Alito continually side-stepped the issue of whether or not the right to privacy in the Constitution extends to reproductive choice….
Look at that last line. Alito has refused to answer whether ‘the right to privacy in the Constitution extends to reproductive choice’. Now, I’m no Constitutional scholar or anything so I have to ask: has the (actually nonexistent) ‘right to privacy in the Constitution’ ever been used to defend anything other than abortion?

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of Organisation of the Islamic Conference, said in Cairo on Sunday that the international body would “ask the UN general assembly to pass a resolution banning attacks on religious beliefs”.

Dawn Summers: And that’s all we have in common. We both support the war in Iraq, we both like poker and we both hate bananas.
Me: I like bananas.
Our poker blog has some new posts up, by me, and I’m sure Dawn is working on one right this second as she was recently recognized in Atlantic City. I mean like ‘I know a girl named Dawn who looks like you and plays poker’ kind of recognized.
