"Whether you like Assange or hate him, the theories used in a potential Espionage Act prosecution would threaten countless reporters at the New York Times, Washington Post, and the many other news outlets that report on government secrets all the time," said Trevor Timm, FTPF's executive director. "While everyone will have to wait and see what the charges detail, it’s quite possible core First Amendment principles will be at stake in this case."

I don't dislike Pelosi... I just want a fighter. Someone who won't capitulate. Someone who will throw a harder "punch" than they've been hit with. I want someone who will fight for me and what's right and won't back down. Someone, who if they go down, they go down swinging. If she can do those things, or even just one of those things, I'm fine with her.
Pelosi, 78, made history when she became the first female speaker of the House in 2007.

“There’s a verbal tic particular to a certain kind of response to a certain kind of story about the thinness and desperation of American society; about the person who died of preventable illness or the Kickstarter campaign to help another who can’t afford cancer treatment even with “good” insurance; about the plight of the homeless or the lack of resources for the rural poor; about underpaid teachers spending thousands of dollars of their own money for the most basic classroom supplies; about train derailments, the ruination of the New York subway system and the decrepit states of our airports and ports of entry.

“I can’t believe in the richest country in the world. …”

This is the expression of incredulity and dismay that precedes some story about the fundamental impoverishment of American life, the fact that the lived, built geography of existence here is so frequently wanting, that the most basic social amenities are at once grossly overpriced and terribly underwhelming, that normal people (most especially the poor and working class) must navigate labyrinths of bureaucracy for the simplest public services, about our extraordinary social and political paralysis in the face of problems whose solutions seem to any reasonable person self-evident and relatively straightforward.

“Meanwhile, in our ever-declining adversary-of-convenience, the Moscow subway runs on time.”
