Reading about the recent games of whack-a-rat various folk have been playing with Wikileaks, I have an irrational desire to do a Tony Curtis and leap to my feet shouting "*I'm Spartacus!*".
Irrational because the Romans dealt with that particular display of mass defiance with brutal efficiency.
Still, the populace seem particularly dense when it comes to learning official lessons about championing the underdog. I think it's the satisfaction gained from tearing the mask from a hypocrite's face and holding a mirror up to it while saying "This is the real you. Deny it if you can!"
