The protester, what should happen to her? [View all]

I'm curious about all those who are horrified about the protester who interrupted Michelle Obama's speech. Do you think there should be some sort of punishment, to teach her a lesson, for being so rude to Michelle, and not knowing her place? For the record, I think she had every right to protest, and there should be no penalty. But this poll is more for those who have such a big problem with it. Vote for what you would do below please. This poll is limited to 24 hours.
