I got this email from Maggie Gyllenhaal:

Ok punk patriot. I got your video.
I like your style--patrolling the streets looking for trouble...
So...on the Daily Show what I said was that I would choose Obama over Mitt Romney on almost anything. That's what I said. And that's what I did a few months ago when I had to choose between them for President. But...you know...it's true that I'm finding it hard to say goodbye to Obama completely and unequivocally. I bought what he was selling for a long time. I really did. It's much harder to understand things like what JSOC is doing or what's happening to the mainstream media or Bradley Manning or the NSA when someone on your side is over seeing it all. Someone I voted for. It's easier to understand in a way when it's Rumsfeld or Cheney or someone who seems like the bad guy in an Austin Powers movie doing these things. So...you're not wrong in feeling that I'm conflicted. I am. I'm disappointed in Obama. But I guess it's true that I havent completely given up hope. That's where I am, right now.
And let me be absolutely clear that there is no part of me that thinks I am as brave as Bradley Manning. I made that video because I support him. And I wanted to say so. It took an afternoon. It was a small thing. And NOT NEARLY enough. I know that.
But here's the real thing I'd like to say. I've checked out your website. We seem to believe in a lot of the same things. Let's not take each other down. Let's make a video together.
I've spoken with her further, and I guess we're going to collaborate on a video this fall.
The internet is a very, very strange place.
