The First Amendment was violated by Bushco and the Capitol Police at the State of the Union last night:

First Cindy Sheehan was dragged out: Police Remove Sheehan From Bush Speech

Then, the wife of Rep. Bill Young of Florida, who was wearing a shirt that said "Support the Troops": Lawmaker's wife told to leave during Bush speech

First Amendment lawyer Glenn Greenwald's take: Learning From Dear Leader

Update: Capitol police have dropped the charges against Sheehan, admitting she broke no laws. Of note, Mrs. Young was merely removed, and was not arrested and charged as Sheehan was.
