Fucked caucuses

[UPDATE Well, the site just ran into bandwidth limitations. Bad news, but good news.]

[WARNING: Give the site, say, thirty seconds or a minute for the movie to buffer (more time than the site says) Then it will play; I just tested it.]

Powerful. Worth it.

A preview.

UPDATE But McCain has houses! They're bright and shiny! And did I mention that he's old?

I wish I had a transcript to analyze. And a list of the sources. That professor sounded pretty authoritative....

Matches the experiences and stories here too...
it is powerful and I'm glad they are documenting it. We cannot get over this vote stealing and have a democracy without changing this, can we?
We tried to change things since '00 and '04 (without top Democratic leadership--Gore told us to stay home although he fought for a while, and in spite of his promises, Kerry didn't even fight) and have made some progress...but this--it takes the Democrats out of the business of fixing the problem and into the business of using the problem--and the "problem" is counting our votes!
So many people have worked the polls--they thought we wouldn't notice? I guess they thought we wouldn't care if it was what we wanted too?

It didn't matter whether people noticed or cared.

very well done
I hope other people will make videos documenting what happened

the Texas party will be damaged for years to come. I don't think we have any chance at that Senate race, the ill will from that sort of thing makes it impossible for people to work together.

... for people to agree to be filmed like that. Given the givens.

should report it to the police. they should get a report number from the police and then contact the media. The news media is not interested unless there is a police report number.

This video keeps buffering after every 10 seconds for me. Is there another format available?

Submitted by lambert on

That happened to me too, but after a few tries it cleared and went all the way through (about 30 minutes).

although I did watch the Brad Mays trailer from a few weeks ago and that was depressing and enraging enough.

But in answer to the question, did they think they'd get away with it -- yes, they did.

They expected to sweep the primaries (evidently believing all the people in Appalachia (Extended) would be soooo impressed by his 10 tiny red state caucus wins in row) and just ride the wave through June.

Who'd listen to a bunch of fraud allegations in the caucuses then? Imagine if in 2000 GWB had swept to an electoral landslide before FL was even counted. Who besides a small number of us, who actually care about process, would make any noise about it?

Besides, above all, Axelrod is a tactician, not a strategist. They don't have a good strategist, just a bunch of Blue Dogs, Senators for Life and Nancy-Gift-from-God-Pelosi. They couldn't win a game of Risk against a 6th grader. It's part of the reason why he's floundering now -- no one with the ability to make long term plans.

And I really hope they don't think Biden's going to be any help in that area. Well, actually I pretty much do hope that, lol.

The entire Dem Party is in trouble. The GOP won't let voter fraud go silently, nor should they. Yeah the GOP will be hypocrites, but if the fraud is real then it needs to get out, and it will get out.

If this gets traction, a lot of Obama's backers are in trouble. If Hillary has this information, she's not innocent in this whole thing either.

file complaints and alert the press? More should be done but those two are a great start. Well, and if the recent Obama campaign stuff about voting reform is serious and came during talks with her, then perhaps she did that too (several speculated about this here.)

Plouffe's solution to caucuses was absentee ballots.

Obama from getting the nomination, they will almost certainly be successful at preventing him from winning in November. These works, along with the assembled data from P. Cronin and Lynette Long, will be used to totally delegitimize him as the Dem nominee.

I hope the super-d's do the right thing.
