What is free speech coming to?

If McCain’s town hall meetings are supposed to be open to the public, then why is a librarian expressing her right to free speech being removed from the area in front of the building?

See the original YouTube posting here and the follow up story on MSNBC’s Coundown with Keith Olbermann here

I am not advocating any political party, but this action by McCain’s personnel seems to go against what this country stands for an was built upon – the rights of the people.  A 61 year old librarian was using her right to free speech, when McCain’s people tell her to leave with her sign which read “McCain = Bush”.  She questions them and the police are summoned and ticket her.

If we lose our right to free speech, what’s next?
