Digby Totally ROCKS!

Video from the Gala Dinner at Take Back America 2007 in Washington, DC - June 19, 2007


update: Spock's Brain tipped me off that his
buddy Sinfonian over at Blast Off had
had the transcript of Dibgy's speech.
Sadly, we also all agree that the mainstream media is part of the problem. Democracy suffers when not being held accountable by a vigorous press. During the last decade, there have been three catalyzing events that drove people like me to the Internet, to research, investigate, and write about assaults on democracy itself. In 1998, the political media lost all perspective, and aggressively helped the Republicans pursue a partisan witch-hunt against a democratically-elected president and against the will of the people. The coverage of the presidential election of 2000 was legendary for its bias and sophomoric personality journalism. The press actually joined the Republicans in telling the majority who had voted for Al Gore to get over it. I don’t know about you, but
I never got over it.

[emphasis mine]
i have not gotten over it.
i never will.

The Nation provides their coverage here.
we thank The Nation.
