Me thinks thou dost protest not enough

Sounds like things did not go quite as well as expected for Gov. Schwarzenegger yesterday during his pit stop at a local car wash. Sure, there were plenty of supporters, strategically placed in front of the protestors. With “Go For It” posters raised, the Governor may not have been able to see the detractors, but they were there.

According to the paper it wasn’t as bad as the heckling he received in Santa Monica yesterday, “but it was a big change from the swooning crowds that normally greet Schwarzenegger here.” The dissenters chanted, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, the Terminator’s got to go” but their efforts to get Schwarzenegger's attention failed thanks to the sea of red shirted supporters standing in front.

That seems unfair to me. They put up a fence and only allowed supporters on the inside and kept the protestors on the outside. Is that legal? Maybe it's just show biz.
