John Hall for Congress

John Hall for Congress

Do you remember when I posted about the RNC using Hall's classic song in Bush's campaign?

Citizens Crash the Gates of Congress

Thanks to everyone who bought a book so this could happen.

Politics TV:

"Citizens from around the east coast descended on Washington on May 23 to hand deliver copies of Crashing the Gate by Jerome Armstrong and Markos Moulitsas to every Democratic member of the House and Senate. 250 copies of the book were donated one at a time by Americans from around the country in less than two days.."

Download the video at Politics TV. (Youtube wasn't playing it properly.)

Grab a copy of "Crashing the Gate" if you haven't so far. It's an excellent read.

MBA: "Moments ago, lawyers for the advertising agency suing MBA Member Lance Dutson filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal in U.S. District Court in Maine..."This is a textbook case of how blogs work.

Unclassified Media Project

Unclassified Media Project
From reader Jen:
"From the Unclassified Media Project comes this rock-and-roll news-reel about the Bush administration's trampling of the Constitution. Remember, kids, back when we used to have civics classes in our schools, which warned about how easily our nation could slide from democracy into despotism?

Despots don't like kids to learn how a democracy should work. This media remix includes prophetic lessons from 1946, news footage of "the decider," messages from the American people about protecting our nation-- and some original music. Also features a brief interview with Glenn Greenwald about his book, How Would a Patriot Act? Here's the website for Glenn's book. To see more Unclassified Media Projects, go here."
