We need to protest.
We have the message.
We have the fury.
We need the language.
With this fucked-up facsimile of a knowledgeable electorate, we need to adopt a repulsive strategy from the Dark Side's playbook to get the public to realize what happened today.
Soundbites - make 'em raw, make 'em righteous, make 'em compelling.
-some half-assed suggestions, after the flip-
INNOCENT? I DARE YOU TO PROVE IT.
WESTERN CIVILIZATION: not in America
WHAT WOULD JESUS DO? NOT TORTURE.
HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE YOU ARE LABELED THE ENEMY?
WATERBOARDING IS NOT AN EXTREME SPORT.
ARE YOU OK WITH ABU GHRAIB? (with pic)
ONE IF BY CATTLEPROD, TWO IF BY WATERBOARD
GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT CHARGES
WE HAD A DREAM.

"... mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security..."
Speak softly and carry a big stick did not refer to TORTURE!
"We must indeed all hang together, or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately."
DON'T BE THE NEXT PERSON LABELED "ENEMY."
"In politics the middle way is none at all."
YOU CAN'T COMPROMISE ON TORTURE.
"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
FIGHT FOR YOUR INALIENABLE RIGHTS.
"The Law: It has honored us, may we honor it."
PROTECT HABEAS CORPUS.
"Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just."
WATERBOARDING IS A WAR CRIME.
