What song best exemplifies the past news week?

I thought about this on the metro today, but I'm going to do a weekly "Soundtrack For The Week" posting where I will compile your song suggestions that you think best capture the spirit of the week in news. I thought of this when "Don't Worry About The Government" by Talking Heads came on my Ipod today. Let's say submissions are due by Thursdays at 4 PM and I'll post the soundtrack (hopefully with links to the song tracks in Amazon.com or mixwit.com) on the site Friday morning.

Ready? And.........GO!
