Fool on the hill

insomnia: Future American lawyers to be proud of. They didn't quite get the quote right, but give 'em points for making AG AG look like a confused little pusillanimous fool.
Alberto Gonzales spoke before law students at Georgetown today, justifying illegal, unauthorized surveilance of US citizens, but during the course of his speech the students in class did something pretty ballsy and brave. They got up from their seats and turned their backs to him.
The students then displayed a banner with a Franklin quote displayed (again, with their backs to AG AG). The actual quote should have been this:
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
