Poll question: What will be the press's reaction to Gonzales?
The AG has informed the press that they can and will be prosecuted, and that their phone calls, etc. are fair game for his witch hunt. How will they react?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. They'll whine and piss and moan and expect us to pull their
'chesnuts' out of the fire for them. They'll be paralyzed in their disbelief that the criminal cabal has turned on them.

2. Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
'Neath the halo of a street lamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one dared
Disturb the sound of silence

"Fools", said I, "You do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words, like silent raindrops fell
And echoed
In the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said, "The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls"
And whispered in the sounds of silence

6. Damn! Why is that song still so.... today?
People trustingly follow the media, follow news on television, the neon god, but it doesn't speak the truth or break the silence. Silence like a cancer grows...

4. I forgot about that
There are worse things than being arrested, and certainly worse things than living in fascism.

7. We need to react, and LOUDLY.
The White House is testing the water, so to speak. See what the reaction is when they take away this particualar right, to see if it's safe to go ahead and take away further freedoms. We can't let it be 'safe' for them to do that. We need to raise hell over this.
