Perhaps that headline is a gross simplification of the story. You can read below to see the details. But it does point to a trend in our country. Instead of free speech, we have free speech zones. There are now specific times and places where you are permitted to ask high government officials (or first ladies) questions. And then, you must be careful what questions you ask.

Now, I'm sure you could argue that people like the ones in the story below are rabble-rousers, irritating, obnoxious or whatever. The Secret Service has to do some things to protect VIPs, and the line from obnoxious to dangerous might be difficult to discern. But it's starting to seem a lot like our elected officials (and their wives) are some kind of royalty. We're expected to be respectful, polite and deferential. And if we're not, WATCH OUT!
