Thanks to Scott Horton at Harper’s No Comment for posting the video below. If you haven’t been reading Scott’s blog, you’ve missed some extremely important stories that I haven’t seen anywhere else or laid out as clearly as Scott has done it. For example, there is a post detailing the 87% prosecution rate vs. 13% Republican rate by Karl Rove and the Bush Justice Department indicating that approximately 1000 Democratic politicians were prosecuted who you are unlikely to have heard of before now; a post on why you should cancel your HBO subscription today, assuming you subscribe; and a story indicating that if we don’t tackle the tough and arduous job of prosecuting our own war criminals, other nations are preparing to do so.
But today is a day for celebration, so let’s start with something to get us in the mood, even if we know that we have a long way to go to get where we need to go, at least we are on the way there, starting today. Just don’t get complacent, there’s a lot of work to do yet.
