A Spike Jonze home movie... hanging out with Al. The best part is his daughter's pro-con list from the family meeting on whether to run for President the first time. The cons? "too much social security around".
It was made during the 2000 campaign. No one saw it.

I watched this for the first time a couple weeks ago. Had this seen the light of day (I believe it was eschewed away by "Democratic campaign strategists" aka idiots), there's no doubt in my mind many many more votes would've been cast for Gore.
The Dems only have themselves to blame for those lost votes.
Speaking of lost votes - I just read the lengthy, extraordinarily well sourced RFK jr. piece on the Ohio GOP dirty tricks, just released online.
Any reasonable person reading it will be left with not only a better understanding of how America was jobbed again, but how deeply partisanship is entrenched into the minds of Republicans. I swear their only definition of an American is being a Republican -- all other citizens are undeserving.
It's party over country, on irrefutable and dispicable display. And the neutered media let the story just get casually dismissed.
Go read it. WAY too much substance to cite anything here...and it is most certainly not a puff piece. It reminds me of reading a legal brief, it's so well cited (typical wingnut says: citation? what's a citation? sounds like more liberal bias!).
