And here's a bit more for context:
Last night, I told you all about the University of Florida student who asked John Kerry a question — and ended up with a sack full o' taser. I was particularly impressed by the response of his peers, who, at a moment's notice, sat back and watched.
Well, a student present at the tasering responded. One Sir D.W.D. astutely said, "Stephen Colbert stated we stood idly around, not helping. How could we help with police officers telling us to back off …"
My point exactly. How are you supposed to protest an abuse of authority, when an authority figure has told you not to? There is a reason you received that knighthood, "Sir" D.W.D .!
