Jersey Girl Fails to Sign Loyalty Pledge

Dear, compassionate Laura.

If there's one thing Kitty Kelley makes clear in her book, The Family (which I'm about 1/2 way through now), it's that the women wear the pants in BushCo. But there's also one other thing that Kelley makes clear: they can't take the heat too well. They don't like crabby people pooping on their menfolk.

We need more war moms with guts of iron like Sue Niederer. What's unclear is, how did she manage to get in without swearing to the Rove / Goebbels Memorial Fealty Oath™ ?

Woman Disrupts Laura Bush Speech in N.J.

HAMILTON, N.J. - A woman wearing a T-shirt with the words 'President Bush You Killed My Son' and a picture of a soldier killed in Iraq was detained Thursday after she interrupted a campaign speech by First lady Laura Bush.

Police escorted Sue Niederer of Hopewell, N.J., from a rally at a firehouse after she demanded to know why her son, Army 1st Lt. Seth Dvorin, 24, was killed in Iraq. Dvorin died in February while trying to disarm a bomb.

As shouts of 'Four More Years' subsided, Niederer, standing in the middle of a crowd of some 700, continued to shout about the killing of her son. Secret Service and local police escorted her out of the event, handcuffed her and placed her in the back of a police van.

Niederer was later charged with defiant trespass and released.
