What's happened to our country?

Once again, the Bush/Cheney Campaign demonstrated at a Rally in Oregon on Thursday their respect for their beloved U.S. Constition:

Three Medford school teachers were threatened with arrest and escorted from the event after they showed up wearing T-shirts with the slogan "Protect our civil liberties." All three said they applied for and received valid tickets from Republican headquarters in Medford.

The women said they did not intend to protest. "I wanted to see if I would be able to make a statement that I feel is important, but not offensive, in a rally for my president," said Janet Voorhies, 48, a teacher in training.

“We chose this phrase specifically because we didn't think it would be offensive or degrading or obscene," said Tania Tong, 34, a special education teacher.

Apparently "obscenity" is subjective, Ms. Tong.

A response from a Democrat News Release on the matter:

The U.S. Constitution was not available on site for comment, but expressed in a written statement support for “the freedom of speech”

Any questions?
