Her 15 Minutes Up, Cindy Sheehan Proves She CAN Still Get Arrested in This Town

By JENNIFER C. KERR, Associated Press Writer 5 minutes ago

Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who has used her son's death in Iraq to spur the anti-war movement, was arrested Monday while protesting outside the White House.

Sheehan and several dozen other protesters sat down on the sidewalk after marching along the pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests.

Sheehan was the first taken into custody. She stood up and was led to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, "The whole world is watching."

I can't wait to hear from the tinfoil crowd.
