Grit TV Sneak Preview – SUPERDELEGATES! from AgitPop!
We just wrapped up taping the first show with an amazing panel of guests: FDL’s Jane Hamsher, talk-show legend Phil Donahue, and The Nation’s Katrina vanden Heuvel, which streams here at 5 pm FDL time (8 pm Eastern). Don’t miss (and please join) the most lively discussion of the state of corporate media and issues of the day you’ll see anywhere.
Those in the Obama camp who have been challenging the superdelegate system may get quieter as the vote count from the so-called supers grows, but that doesn’t make the superdelegate set up so super-democratic. (That’s democratic with a Little D.) At least not in the view of the THE LEAGUE OF YOUNG VOTERS. Over the next few weeks, the League and a group called AGITPOP are rolling out a series of animations at WHITEHOUSEROCKS.COM
GRITtv has the first of them, in an exclusive preview for firedoglake.
This engaging, informative, and very funny animation comes with a petition, challenging the Democratic party leadership to reform the superdelegate system. The petition reads in part:
Dear Democratic Party Leadership (and you know who you are):
We the undersigned, do hereby urge you to fundamentally overhaul the superdelegate system. Or ditch it completely. You decide. Don’t let this meltdown happen again. You’re the "Democratic" Party for God’s sake. We’re watching and we vote.
Tune in – log on – be part of our new venture. We look forward to doing this together.
