When did you stop beating your wife?

How would you answer the first question in this USA Today/Gallup poll, if you didn't think the Bush administration has been "restricting people's civil liberties"?

USA TODAY/Gallup poll

First, thinking about how the government is dealing with the issue of terrorism,

1. Do you think the Bush administration has gone too far, has been about right, or has not gone far enough in restricting people’s civil liberties in order to fight terrorism?

The answers given during the poll May 12-13 were: "Too far," 41%; "About right," 34%; "Not far enough," 19%; and "No opinion," 6%.

"Are you out of your mind?!" apparently was not one of the permissible answers to the question.
