Let me guess. ACORN member?
If the crowd cheered, she must have been a rabid leftist.

Can’t tell what’s happening. McCaskill only says two women brought in signs that they shouldn’t have.

Who was the lady removed?
She was African/American and was not happy.

Has the AP changed their post?

http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/2009/08/woman-escorted-out-of-mccaskill-town-hall-by-police.php

Police reportedly arrested a man and escorted a 52-year-old woman out of Sen. Claire McCaskill’s health care town hall today in Hillsboro, Mo.

The Associated Press reports that the woman, Maxine Johnson of St. Louis, brought in a sign with a picture of Rosa Parks and the words, “First Lady of Civil Rights.” Signs were not allowed at the event.

A man, who was not identified, allegedly ripped the sign. He was reportedly arrested on suspicion of assault. Johnson was then removed from the event by several police officers, but was not arrested.

Maxine???

So Claire gets to decide what signs come in or were all signs banned?

It bothers me, though, that some guy ripped her sign up. It was not up to him to make that decision. Claire McCaskill should’ve dealt with it early, but if someone should’ve been removed, it ought to have been the guy who ripped it up. Now watch, if the guy was white, we’ll be preached at and to for the next 4 years.

Are we sure someone ripped up her sign? The clip shows her shoving someone away, still riled up from her earlier outburst when she was told to sit down and shut up by Claire McCaskill.

My 3 yr. old nephew often embarrasses his parents and others when he asks right in front of Ebonix speakers, “Is she speaking Spanish?” He has never done it with me, thank goodness, but now I know what he means. I can’t tell what in the world she’s saying in that video.

“What parent wouldn’t want to send their child to a private school?” said Maxine Johnson, a parent of six. “If 66 percent of kids are failing in public schools, how do you expect parents to keep their kids there?”

Johnson joined several people in disrupting the school choice protesters circling outside by chanting loudly over them.

***I can’t see it.

Not much, Mom. She just explained that some woman had brought in a sign that she shouldn’t have brought in, and the police removed her and some man took it away. She thanked the people for their patience. And kept saying, “OKAY, OKAY, OKAY?”

Amazing, huh?

Everybody that voted for O imagined that he was the Prince Charming of their particular cause. I wonder how many of them will feel the same by the end of the year?
