And it KEEPS happening here

The inspirational effect Bush has on Dem candidates

In 2004, Bush visited Walz's hometown of Mankato, and Walz, a command sergeant and 24-year veteran of the Army National Guard, decided to take a couple of his high school students to see their president. They had tickets and valid identification, and went through the metal detectors like everyone else. Walz and his students, however, were ordered to leave because one of the boys had a John Kerry sticker on his wallet.

Seriously. I know you're all tired of these stories and not even the information that the guys' wife was told the Secret Service might arrest him makes this one all that different, but think about it.

What kind of political party partisanship is so extreme that someone is pulled aside, questioned, and then banned from entering an event because they have a harmless and entirely legal sticker in their pocket?

Today's Republican Party. Twice the paranoia and none of the common sense.
