3. Agreed, and a thought.
My cousin lives in D.C. and said that the protests, for most people who live and work there (legislators included) are nothing more than a nuisance, and do nothing to wake up your average Joe.

We ought to start having 10-20k person protests in little tiny towns, where the local news sure as heck would cover it if that many people showed up, and maybe even talk about why they were there! :)
