2. there will be an archive later... but
it was a wide-ranging discussion and even tho it was an hour-long, it was fairly shallow. MC Miller was forceful and brilliant as usual, but the overall meme that emerged seemed to be "nothing to see here."

then... the Video The Vote spokesperson came on and that seemed to spark some excitement b/c the promise of video later means that no one has to go out on a limb now and take a stand on election abuses.

they didn't talk about disenfranchisement.
they didn't talk about purges.

they DID talk about the potential for VOTER FRAUD, as in those pesky dead people. take note... that's the Repub double-back...

4. this is a meme watch... elections next week... what's the talk?
the good news: it's being COVERED before the election.
the BAD news: the emerging meme is GLITCHES (if this show and the Sunday paper here in Orlando is any indication).

i'm worried that the Video The Vote movement is being used as a crutch. "Well, if anything goes wrong, our video people will be out there to catch it." hopefully the VTV people will catch some decent footage -- but FUCK! this is cold comfort for the future of democracy.
