"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

CNN - Quickvote - T-shirts in House/Senate galleries

Should visitors to the House or Senate galleries be allowed to wear t-shirts with political messages?
Yes 55% 35255 votes
No 45% 29043 votes
Total: 64298 votes

Does this in some way imply that the rule/law is anti 1st amendment? What is wrong with not being able to absolutely, positively speaking or saying something everywhere? Must it be every square inch of the country by right? Is Bush somehow to blame for this?

Sometimes people go just a bit too fair with their expectations and some how their 1st amendment rights are being trampled. Uh, sorry, shooting the president is not a 1st amendment right, even though you consider it a means of communication.
