A recent New York Times story about the NSA domestic eavesdropping program included the photograph above (Mike Theiler/European Pressphoto Agency) of students protesting Attorney General Alberto Gonzales by turning their backs to him during his speech.

A reader has this information to add:

The NYT left out a funny detail — the students had the words “Tap This” printed on their asses, so Gonzales could read it as he gave his speech. A couple dozen students participated in the protest and some clips were shown on CNN the day of the speech. Too bad they didn't have a more Wonkette appropriate slogan on their asses — I'm sure you know what I'm talking about!
