In the end, this is not only short-sighted tactically but also essentially insulting to the American people. We are on the internet. Come talk with us. What you’re too scared to? Big tough terrorists don’t scare you but we do? Come on, boys, we don’t bite. But we do vote.

I think it’s easy to put up a persona when doing one-way communication but much harder when there’s some risk of a real exchange. So much of the fear of the internet by those in powerful positions seems really to be a fear of us.
