The Sounds of Silence...

"So that is how liberty dies: to the sound of thunderous applause." - Sen. Padme Amidala (lifted from Len)
Yet, more telling than a thunderous shout of approval is a single chord of silence.

...and there goes ole' Wobbly again, sounding off at Fort Bragg like things are looking up in Iraq and how americans have to stand firm etc.

Thing is, the troops weren't applauding.

Were they told to tone it down a bit, and overdid the toning?

Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel - Jefferson
