"Oh now. Rondi scan the waterfront and he picked a weekly lunch partner to be Paul Ryan Than I. Am sorry you're you're not. You are less fit for the office of President. Another thing that is why you pick a running mate with ill-fitting suits. You reap what you sow. or he vicar running made if you're already losing because you were seen as someone who is not sufficiently empathetic to middle working class Americans and you pick up person who is most famous for naming plan to privatize. Medicare after themselves, then you you re, put you so I am sorry. Channel Mean to turn this into a Paul Ryan Rand Polisario all trail and I think I. Think you get to it. What is a very important part of the politics of this which is, you can be overly tactical about it by saying you know this person can help us with this state, and that doesn't manifest itself. This person can help us with this group of voters, and it doesn't as it did not for Mondale and Ferraro or McCain and Palin. It has mattered some I. Think there's some evidence that trump's selection. Of Mike Pence might have helped serve as a validation for evangelical voters who might have been? Confused at the imperative to support a thrice-married Pussy grabber uncouth percent. I said you didn't yes. Yes, I can't wait till we debate whether that can be the title or not. So, but there is narrative right like in this is part of where the politics is. Does it help with the narrative like in what's in air of? You WanNa communicate, so let's look at a couple of previous examples right? In. The case of Brock Obama obviously he was someone with less traditional experience. He was going to be taking over any time. In which America was in two wars and was barreling towards a financial crisis. Joe Biden because certainly compared to the other people on the shortlist Evan by Tim Kaine. Represented the most standard governmental experience right particularly area foreign policy in the case of Al Gore. Algorithm is really interesting because he picked. Joe Lieberman, which seems insane now that Joe Lieberman is become who he is, but at the time in that campaign, Albor was someone whose reputation had been sullied by association with a number of Clinton scandals, some fake, an generated, and some certainly including the one that led to Clinton impeachment, and he went and picked Joe Lieberman, who was Democrat who had been most vocally critical of Bill Clinton was seen by many as the moral voice in the Senate and it was a pick. There was designed to communicate to voters that. Al Gore was breaking with some of the aspects of the Clinton presidency that they did not like. Are there any narratives you can think of that? Biden would be trying to establish here. If there was one issue. seventy seven year, old white man might have, it might be with women, and so he's already sort of approached and tried to tackle that problem by saying ladies. I hear you and I see you, but there's a lot more and so I think that while. Biden himself look like everyone understands. This election is about an existential threat to the country and the world, but Biden still has to motivate people to get out and vote. Because that's important and so I think that while Biden knows that he himself does not come across as any sort of change agent, and he is not the future facing face of the party. I do think that if there's one thing that he's thinking about is like. WHO DO I pick? that can understand and speak to the change that needs to happen in this country, and who is someone that can help lead the party forward. There's a couple of directions that Biden can go here. I tell me good campaign. NARRATIVE IS A. Implicit counter narrative for the person. You're taking on so like you can see a world where Biden decides that he's going to double down on government competence, right? We've had this Yahu. Reality Star who can't even be bothered to do the job in there for the last four years and look where that's gotten us and economic oppression in pandemic that has made America the embarrassment of the world, so you're going to pick someone with tremendous amount of government experience, you could go with sort of what you said. Which is Bridge to the? The future where he's going to say that I recognize that I am older I m a transitional figure and I want my vice president to be the future right. A whole bunch people not less would fit that criteria. You can say I want to double down on. Obama STASIO. Right where it's like you're going to. You know it's sort of make America great again. Circuit two thousand eight to two thousand sixteen and do something so there's a whole bunch of different ways. You can do it if he wants to focus on that. Now the last part I think of the political calculus and I think probably the least consequential, although you should certainly feel free as you often do disagree with me on this, but a good vice presidential candidate needs to be able to win a debate. What are the most notably bad VP? Debate performances came from John Edwards in two thousand and four when he was up against Dick Cheney. There's some people have said I have been. Overly mean to you about the selection of John Edwards by John Kerry who you worked for I would like to state for everyone who's tweeting us that. I am a not holding a responsible for it. Be Thought it was probably the wise decision. In the time, John Numbers did not reveal himself to be an absolutely horrible human being until after that. And, I'm just teasing you. I wanted bill sack. I've said it before I liked him very much. He was my favorite person. Also people don't to stick up for me when it comes to you I. Obviously Hope my own. There's no. There's no doubt about that. You know what happened at that debate, or do you remember about the Cheney Edwards debate. So I remember everybody thinking John Edwards with his like be youthful side swept hair was going to knock it out of the park and.

"Yeah one of the other things I think is interesting about this movie is. How are not erotic it is. and you know it wasn't erotic. Are You shitting me charity? Not shitting you. Gyrating. Doing I mean that was one of the points when I laughed not coming coming from this movie. Having not seen it before it was I left a couple of times I laughed at the. I'm surprised that. He's like I. Wonder What it's like to have. Nobody come on you. I laughed at that line I laughed when she's gyrating on the pool in the pool. But. I wanted to so if we think about robocop and starship troopers, both of them kind of hold a mirror up to the audience, starship troopers holds a mirror up to us, saying that like okay, we all kind of have this hidden desire for fascism, and robocop holds a mirror to us saying. Oh! We're just like these Americans. Who fucking love the blood and the Gore and violence, and just like the complete destruction, and we love You know how like this destruction is completely complicit in the structure of Corporate America. What is the mirror in this movie and I don't know the answer to this because I'm still struggling with this movie, so I'm hoping you guys can maybe clarified a bit for me, so my theory is that this is after he makes basic instinct, which is his big American film like yeah, he did robocop before this, but basic instinct is when he is now in the world of particularly the women right because Sharon, stone becomes this huge. All ready known, but she just kind of reaches the stratosphere with basic instinct, and so I think that this him. In his efforts to explore misogyny and the role of women in the entertainment industry in America in particularly Hollywood in so I think this is him now being in l., A. Robocop is what eighty, seven, eighty, five, eighty, seven seven. And they say and then based his aides. Basic instinct is ninety two that I don't know. And this is ninety. This is ninety five, and then we have starship troopers is ninety seven right so like so I, think that from like eighty seven to ninety five. Let's say or even let's say it's a decade. What you have then is him kind of. Coming from his European experience, where the film industry is rather different, and now he's in America, and he's saying Holy Shit. Man Like I'm seeing some fucked up things. You know this idea that everybody is a whore that everyone is selling themselves right, and that's just part of the game, and you will get sucked into it whether you like it or not. Not just the women the men, too, but it particularly protracted on the feminine. Body right not only do you have to take your clothes off but also just in terms of how it will affect you. You you beat yourself up. There's like infighting you get injured. I. Mean there's all kinds of costs associated with this, but no matter what you will end up selling yourself so that you can achieve the that you think you desire and I think that's really what this is, so it's a little bit less about America in a grand sense and more about Hollywood and the entertainment in particular, which is still a very like it's a microcosm right like it's like a cynic Deke. If you will of America but told through Hollywood, but told through Vegas you know..

"gore" Discussed on This Day In Esoteric Political History

"This Day July Ninth Nineteen, Ninety, two presidential candidate Bill Clinton opted not to use his vice presidential pick to balance the ticket instead selecting another young southerner with centrist leanings to be his running mate. Al Gore Out Gore had run for President before he would go on to be the nominee in two thousand, and of course whether his presence on the ballot in Nineteen ninety-two actually helped Clinton win is up. Up for debate, as is often the case with these things, so let's talk about it. Let's get into not just this pick, but some of the big questions around what it means to pick a vice president I'm joined as always by Nicole. Hammer Columbia Hello Mickey Hello Judy, and here for his third episode with us is John dickerson minutes and the new book, the hardest job in the world has. Hello Jody, so your book. The hardest job in the world is about the presidency and I'm GONNA. Do something that every vice president has probably lamented, which is make it about the president, so let me ask you. What can you learn? How much can you learn about a president from their vice presidential picks and in this particular case? How much can we learn about Bill Clinton, from his choice of Al Gore. There's the endless debate about balancing the ticket, and whether the balance that's in the ticket is a meaningful event electorally or whether it's when I spent some time looking into Eisenhower's pick of Nixon. To kind of mollify the conservatives, who are angry because he'd romped all over taft, and who they assumed would get the Republican nomination. It was less in the context as I read the history of a vice president who could pick them up a state and more kind of unity ticket that was built after defeating the golden haired boy of Senator Taft. And so then we all know about Johnson and Kennedy. What strikes me about? Gore that's interesting is Gore feels like one of those picks where the president said I want a governing partner? I mean certainly in the Democratic Party picking another white man from the south was not what much of the Democratic Party wanted and yet Clinton felt like Gore could be a governing partner in the way that that Obama treated Biden in the way Bush, treated Cheney somebody who's going to do the work of the job and not just be selected for the electoral votes they might bring in or the constituencies. They might wrap in for their party and I. would layer on top of that it. Underscored the message of the Clinton campaign right? This is a new generation of leaders, and both of them were incredibly young men. They were going up against President Bush who had done a lot of really amazing things over the course of his career, but who was a waspish elderly man that they were running against a member of the greater greatest generation as opposed to a member of the baby boom generation, and so it really just underlined that difference. That's right. The the bridge to the future has these two people building it, and that that's exactly right, and they're kind of youthful energy of the baby boomers. That's exactly right. They could jog together. They do those tiny shorts? Yeah, that was. You, don't see that one. That was less also you know I mean Gore also short up some of Clinton's character challenges to which was helpful, and also I guess the extent although I. Don't remember this being made as an argument for him, but his experience in the Senate would be helpful in teaching the Non Washington, and that's why I was thinking about Mondale with Carter outside of Washington governor. Coming in has vice presidential pick. Who knows the folk ways of the town which? Which is is actually legitimately helpful. I can't remember whether it was actually an argument for Gore at the time. Yeah, and it's interesting that you mentioned the selection of Richard Nixon as a way of shoring up a different faction within the party, because both Clinton and Gore were part of the deal, see the Democratic Leadership Council which was kind of the same wing of the party right these various centrist technocratic politicians who were rejecting in many ways. Ways the McGovern wing of the party. It wasn't an effort to bring aboard governed nights. It was an effort to sort of solidify this new direction, the third way for the Party and to show swing voters that this was not your longhaired Hippie bell-bottom Democrats by pro-death. Penalty Pro Fiscal Restraint Dad Democrats. Who you as an electoral, so I mean it does seem like there's maybe two types of VP picks roughly speaking one. That may be kind of. Of reinforces some of the major themes and advantages that you going for, and then some that may be kind of fill in gaps feels like right now. We're having a conversation with Biden mostly about the gaps. Can we see kind of in a larger sweep weather like the choices are moving in one direction or another? Is it really case by case? I think it's case by case, but I would say that one of the things that Gore. Is An important part of that I think has been increasingly. The case is is this idea of governing partners that the vice president isn't going to be simply put into a broom closet in the White House and let left alone for forty years that it's going to be someone with a portfolio and you see that with Gore, who's given the task of reorganizing the entire federal government? You see that of course Cheney, who has so much more federal government experience than George W Bush has, and you see with Biden as well that they're. They're real partners in the kind of work that they're doing and you saw with even when Dukakis Benson I mean. Mean, you know it was somebody who had Washington stature where the expectation was that that stature would be employed in the service of what Dukakis was running on I think that's right and having just spent so many years writing a book about what the presidency really is. It's really useful to have somebody that is put in charge of or nominally put in charge of some chunk of the presidency, because it's more than one person can handle and actually increasing our view of the presidency as an organization, rather than just one person would be quite helpful in changing our expectations for what the actual job is. I also like the way in which Obama used. Biden or at least my understanding of it. which was that in the debates about Afghanistan to have Biden? Designated skeptic as they were discussing when and how to change their Afghanistan posture, military posture to just always have somebody in the room. Who's playing that role and the they also talk about chiefs of staff this way to who are playing the role as kind of the president's blindspot minder, who's always poking at ideas? Always covering for something, a president might miss because of just the over the overwhelming nature of the job Nikki with Al Gore. Kind of things we think of SS, Big Policy Legacy, certainly environmentalism, and then you know fairly or not. The whole Al Gore invented the Internet bullshit line that flows the floats around Bullshit Line is in like I think it's an unfair of disparaging of him but what? What is your sense of kind of how much that kind of stuff played into this decision and his partnership with Clinton. Well I think it's important to understand who Al Gore was in terms of the Democratic Party. He came in in the late nineteen seventies in the nineteen eighties. He's this part of this group of Young Democratic legislators. The Atari Democrats Atari was a video game console at the time for those. Didn't get a chance to to play it, but it was sort of like you might call the Silicone Valley, generation, or something like that like these were the tech guys? These were the guys who believed that technology was going to revolutionize democracy, and it was going to revolutionize governing, and they wanted to harness that power I mean this is conversation that's been ongoing in American government for a long time, but it also plays in to the idea of the deal. Cease Centrist. Right that if you believe that there are technological answers to everything, then you. You don't have to get caught up in debates about ideology, and that's the way that Al Gore wanted to govern, and then of course he comes into office with Bill Clinton I. Think they saw I'd I on that? They just happened to come into office in the middle.

A Conversation With Country Star Mickey Guyton

"Star Mickey gotten about the state of the genre, and her new single black like me. So, Mickey, we have this tweet from Ric Ward, Who says, I think the lines of country music get blurred. What makes it country I thought the little Naz Exxon Old Town Road was country, but it was kicked off the country charts and before you answer, let me just remind listeners. The old town road Song was a major hit, and it debuted on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and the Hot Countries Songs chart. But then Billboard removed Old Town Road from the list of hot country songs and informed Columbia Records. That's laws Exes label that his Inclusion in that list was a mistake. What do you make of that battle over what is and what is not country music like an answer you that question right now, the whole over the last Eight years I have been hearing Trot beats an army melodies and country music and I've seen men wearing flat billed hats and Timberlands. And Doing a lot of what black culture does. So that is where the lines have gotten blurred and It has been Kind of frustrating for me because As a black woman who has grown up on that music. It was just very odd to me that they would call Little Naz Exxon, not country, but everything else is country. From other men, and that was a huge Dilemma for me. I had a really hard time. Writing songs myself because What was considered country for some people wasn't considered country for me. And that's where the lines have been drawn are blurred. Do you think that line has been drawn based on race that if a white artist had done old town road, it would have stayed in the country charts. I am. Because it wasn't an artist. I don't want to say absolutely. Yes, but I think that would have been a huge factor. Yes. This is something that you have without naming names. You have called out others in your industry for and I again want to go back to this interview that you did You said. I've been called the n word within this industry on DH. If you don't say something, it's saying that you don't care about me that I don't belong. Here is what that says to me. Yeah. What? What do you want your fellow artists in country music to say, I want them to say that they support black lives. Period. Saying you support black lives isn't saying you don't support Blue lives. It's not saying that you don't support all lives. When you don't say that there are black people. There are very few black people within this industry that air trying to find their footing within this industry. And if you're saying your acceptance of us You're not. And you're not saying that. That's how I feel. And I was very nervous when blackout Tuesday happened. I was terrified. I didn't know. If anybody was goingto say they support black lives because I understand that it's scary, especially with in country music because we don't typically express Our opinions on anything. And at that moment, it was more important. To rock the boat and say that you support black lives to let people know within the industry that we matter. Because there's been so many times that we haven't There's been times where I've been at a concert in Sol Confederate flags. Flown waving in my face. And I felt very alone in those moments. And this was a moment and a chance in a time for them to show that racism is not accepted within the country Community period. This is something that you have been grappling with. For most of your life. It seems like you grew up in mostly white neighborhoods in Texas. Yeah, why did you end up going to private school? I went to private school because I grew up and lived in Crawford, Texas. And where I lived in Crawford, Texas. Former Gore governor at the time was Governor George Bush's ranch was right next to my subdivision. And the school that I was supposed to go out there didn't want black kids to go to that school. So my parents had to work to put me in private schools and even in private schools, I still experience racism. There was a time I remember the map of Africa was pulled down and one of my private schools Trinity Lutheran. And two little white kids were saying In a different way. And I remember looking at my teacher and I still don't even understand what that meant. But I knew it was a word that we're not supposed to say. And the teacher didn't chastise them. She just said it's actually pronounced and that was it. Yeah, that's a lot. Luke Tweets. Keep doing you, Mickey. Music is beautiful, and so are you. You're just adding to that beauty of it. Don't stop. Don't ever

The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire: Archetypes

"I'm. Where going back to daily bread. archetypes are perennial teams that reside at the level of the collective universal source. They are representations of our collective soul's yearnings imagination. And deepest is is. These archetypes have existed in every culture in every tradition since the beginning of time. archetypes, our ancient gods themes, motifs stories literature. Art Paintings. Even paintings on the was of caves from longtime ago and they embody. Symbolically. Themes of expanded or higher consciousness, you can say symbolic representations. Of A particular aspect. Of The divine intelligence archetypes and Forms and shapes the there soon. Shift throughout history, but their core meaning that Gore theme that God motif remains the same. archetypes everywhere. In popular culture. Movie Stars Sports Heroes. They're all basically representations of archetypes. Visionary leaders are representations of archetypes. Saints are great activists like Nelson Mandela Martin Luther King Junior. Mark Maguire Andy Abraham, Lincoln or Representation of archetypes, but so products may be a brand of sopa Volkswagen brand, new car, or even Marlboro cigarettes. These represents architects, the guy who's used to advertise Marlboro cigarettes who has a? Very tough-looking. Cowboy on the Horse, and now of course is on a respirator, but that archetype. Of was very successful in selling cigarettes. And Johnnie Walker is a very successful. archetype selling whiskey. Because it attracts a certain team, a certain personality, a certain story. Movies TV soap operas, media tabloids. These are actually all right. archetypes. And every person they representing every idea they represent are every product represent seems to be larger than life. It seems uncomplicated. It seems at least the way it's advertise pure of intent, whatever that intent may be sacred or profane. It does matter. And so I say exaggerated expressions of the conscious energy of the collective source. That is the adventure or the secret of the sage of the rescuer of the redeemer or the love object. That the archetype represents. is in fact, the symbolic representation of a divine intelligence in the conscious energy of our collective Sola. Born of the collective soul, but enacted by the individual. Becomes very powerful as they representation. Of that are detected theme for example Marilyn. Monroe was the archetype of the Greek Greek Goddess Aphrodite representing sensuality and beauty and sexuality.

Supreme Court rules LGBT people protected from job discrimination.

"The supreme. Court ruled on Monday that a landmark civil rights law protects gay lesbian and transgender people from discrimination in employment. A resounding victory for LGBT writes from conservative court. The court decided by six to three vote that a key provisions of the civil rights, act, of nineteen, sixty, four, known as title seven that Baas job discrimination, because of sex among other reasons encompasses bias against lgbt workers. An employer, who has an individual being homosexual or transgender fires that person for traits or actions, it would not have questioned in members of different sects justice neil gorse wrote for the court. Sex plays a necessary and undistinguishable role in the decision exactly what title seven forbids? Justice Samuel Alito Brett cavern and Clarence Thomas dissented. Cabinet wrote a separate dissent that the court was rewriting the law to include gender identity and sexual orientation. A job that belongs to Congress still cavern, said the decision represents an important victory achieved by gay and Lesbian Americans. The outcome is expected to have a big impact for the estimated eight point one million lgbt workers across the country because most states don't protect them from workplace discrimination, an estimated eleven point three million. MILLION LGBT people live in the US according to the Williams institute at the Ucla Law School but Monday's decision is not likely to be the courts last word on a host of issues revolving around lgbt rights Gauche noted lawsuits pending over transgender athletes participation in school, sporting events and courts, also dealing with cases about sex, segregated bathrooms and locker rooms, a subject that the justices seemed concerned about during arguments in October. Employers who have religious objections to employing lgbt people also might be able to raise those claims in a different case Gore said.

The founder and president of the voter participation center the Voter Participation Center has helped over four point. Six million voters register and get to the polls and page card was a pioneer and identifying key voting bloc. She was one of the first to recognize unmarried. Women as a key political population one with significant and impactful political power. He's Gardner and I discussed what's called the marriage gap. That's the gap between unmarried women and married women in relation to their registration habits and voting behaviors. We also discussed this in the context of the corona virus outbreak. Given that unmarried women generally have less financial stability when compared to married women so without further. Ado here's my conversation with page partner Gardiner. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you very much great to be here so I was looking at your numbers. And since two thousand and three voter participation center you've helped around four and a half million voters registered to vote and get to the polls which is a massive amount of people millions and millions of people. And that's that's really incredibly impressive. But I'm just curious you know two thousand three. It feels like a lifetime ago and it wasn't but it feels like a lifetime ago and I don't think that voter suppression or voter issues for mainstream. Then what encouraged you to get into those costs to become interested in you know registering voters? So it's interesting that you bring that up. We have helped over point. Six million people applied to be registered to vote and hundreds of millions of people. Turn out but just sort of tripping down memory lane in two thousand I looked at the election of Gore versus Bush and noticed the difference between married and unmarried women in terms of how they voted and their share of the electorate and unmarried women. Married women voted very very differently with unmarried women voting for Gore in married women voting for Bush and I wondered about that and the share of the electorate of unmarried women was really really small in terms of their strength in numbers in terms of the voting eligible population. So that leads to lots and lots of research and the key question was was this sort of a just an observation or was there causality in marital status in other words does marital status determine whether or not you register and whether or not you vote. And after years of research and looking at things like articles from Census Bureau scholars to doing our own research it turns out that marital status along with age and race are key determinants of whether or not you register and whether or not you vote so then. The question became if unmarried. Women are unregistered and higher numbers than they should be. How do you reach them? So then what we did at the voter. Participation Center was pioneer mail based voter registration targeting particular demographic all across the country and that was really a revolutionary. We created for the first time the first list of unregistered people in this country. Because as you know no state keeps a list of its unregistered citizens so we had to create a list of unregistered unmarried women. Nail THEM VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION. And then make sure that voter registration application got sent to the appropriate elections official. We did that after a number of years. And then it turned out that this process was successful with other underrepresented demographics persons of Color and young people. So that is how our program's evolved to include what we call the rising American electric which is unmarried women persons of Color and young people who are now sixty four percent of the entire voting eligible population in the country today. More than a hundred and fifty million people yet. They're underrepresented in terms of their registration rates. And they do not vote and they are not as large as share in. The electorate would suggest that they could be while. That's incredible actually had no idea that before voter participation that there was no way or no one was tracking unregistered voters. And now I'm curious. How did you do that? How did you track now? Who was not registered? Well after many many years and what we have done is refined a system where we match a voter file from state to a list of commercial data and then we delete the names of people or addresses that do not appear on the voter file and then we go through about twenty five other steps to insure the quality of the data. And after having done that we then mail out a voter registration application form that then. The person fills out and sends back to the appropriate election. Official

Joe Biden says voters 'ain't black' if they support Trump, then apologizes

"You have a problem figuring out whether you're trump and you ain't black it don't have nothing to do with trump. It have to do the fact. I want something for my community. I would love to record van. You're saying he still hasn't shown you why you would vote for him. Specifically a black woman. Running me is necessary especially after the day when we see a black person voting for trump. And you know trump is the modern allowed people in this country. That does make you question how much that person cares about his people. So I understand the statement shop from a from a whole white male. Joe By some fallout from that tense interview between Joe Biden and radio host. Charlemagne the God it comes as Biden has acknowledged the next stage of the vice presidential. Vetting is about to begin. And so we thought we'd call on two of our own colleagues who have quite a bit of experience with that process as we debut a new segment on our program the powerhouse players with ABC News Contributors Republican Chris Christie and Democrat Rahm Emanuel they will offer insight and analysis like nobody else as the two thousand election ramps up and rum. Let's get right to it. You heard it right there. Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He apologized for being so cavalier. But where does this go from here? Well first of all I think what it does is obviously influences. The vice presidential selection. Everybody that tells you. A dozen isn't being honest. It has an impact on a weight on the scale etc and I think the Biden campaign credit for mealy jumping on it and try to Deflated everybody is united in the party with a single goal of beating. President trump. I would step back though and say violated a simple number one rule. You have to project that you're gonNA earn every vote fight for every vote just like you're gonNA fight for this country and what this said underneath was. I'm going to get your vote no matter what I do. Because the other guy's worse than me. And that violates politics one on one but Chris. The trump campaign was immediately out with ads. Criticizing Biden does that continue sure. Of course it doesn't and here's the problem Ramadan. I've talked about this before. The Biden campaign should do everything they can to keep Joe Biden in the basement and stop talking because as soon as he starts talking he starts to create problems. He's in the phase of the campaign right now where it's really a referendum on the president unless he turns it into a binary choice and by doing things like he just did. He's turning it into a binary choice and rob complements the Biden Campaign for defusing it. They've had plenty of practice in trying to defuse these things and they're gonNA play anymore. I suspect in terms of the impact on the vice presidential pick. Though I hope it doesn't impact it because if it does he could take himself down the McCain Sarah Palin route which is not the place he wants to go in my view. This is a first. Do No harm pick for Vice President Biden and run by was already under some pressure to choose a black woman as a running mate. He says multiple or under consideration. Does this increase the pressure? In the likelihood he will choose a black woman. It adds weight obviously To that effort and I think you know I believe in I think you have to look at the history of Vice President. Used to pick a vice president. One do no harm to balance your weaknesses whether it's geographic or ideological when President Clinton picked Al Gore. Jason Southern Moderate Tennessee Arkansas. He Changed The paradigm from balance to partnership. And I think you look at it. It's not like George Bush had worry about Wyoming or president or Senator Barack Obama had to worry about Della Gore's electoral votes. They answered a political part of the equation. But they also added a partnership Element I think in the end of the day the most important vetting after you get to the final three will be president. Senator Vice President Joe Biden. See this person. His partner in making these critical decisions and that to me will be the element that amounts. Because when you look at Sarah Palin she did not fulfil John McCain's message themes and who he was as a character and it became apparent to the voters. This was an impulse. Joyce real choice of a partnership and Chris Biden has committed to selecting a woman. Does that box some in? Was that a good idea. Well listen it's his call right and what it does is it eliminates about fifty percent of the population. But that's his call. I think that you know here. It's even more Stark Martha and Robin mentioned. One thing that I think is very important. Joe Biden if elected will be seventy eight years old with a history of some health issues going into this. The American people are going to be looking a little bit different than a partnership. They're going to be looking at this person to say. Can I see this person as president even more starkly than they do with a normal vice presidential pick? I don't think anybody was worried about Barack Obama prematurely dying office. I don't think anybody who's worried about George W Bush in that regard and so looking at this choice. He needs to look at it that way as well given Senator Biden's vice president binds agent so of his history. I've gone through this process twice myself and being vetted and the partnership matters significantly there's no doubt but also that person has to be able to see you but more importantly the American people in this instance has to see that choice as someone they could see as president of the United States that in the next four years.

Dot Com slash ride and the discount will be automatically applied at checkout just last year. The Washington Post wrote an article entitled a Cautionary Tale for politicians Al Gore and the invention of the Internet. They agreed that the meat of the quote. I just read you. Even allowing for the fact that quote people sometimes mis speak on live. Television End. Quote seemed to grab credit and a somewhat overly zealous way. Here's what the Post said. Quote a gaffe sticks if it's somehow validates preconceived notions about a politician Gore. Had a real story to tell about being one of the first politicians to grasp the importance of interconnected computers with one awkward phrase spun up by opponents and miss reported by the media he managed to obscure his accomplishments and instead became a recurring punchline and quote and to me. That's the thing. The whole quote was spun to fit into a common media characterization of Gore as I don't know I guess Smarty Pants know at all the snooty professor type or moral scold. Which of course the later movie inconvenient truth did little to alleviate the whole Brouhaha about inventing the Internet though really kicked off on March Eleventh Nineteen Ninety nine wired news published in article by the writer. Declan mccullagh by the way same. Last name is mine but he spells it differently. So there's no relation under the title. No credit where it's due McCullough said that Gore quote took credit for the Internet and quote and went on to point out that Gore was too young to have been around for the creation of arpanet and claimed quote Gore has taken credit for popularizing the term information superhighway but the term data highway has been used as far back as nineteen seventy five before. Gore even enter Congress end quote of course Gore didn't claim anything about arpanet or the Info highway at least not in the interview in question nonetheless within days the tag of the bragging and possibly fibbing Al Gore stuck. This was in the days before blogs and long before the Twitter Echo Chamber which today tends to pounce on political gaffe or meam and often reliably parts is those facts but also tends to bounce the debate back and forth Ad Nauseam. I think that the fact that the issue was initially picked up by wired magazine wired news was an important factor in the evolution of this me again. This was a more technologically time and lots of quote. Normal people would have taken wired as an expert voice on Internet matters and so on the same day that the McCulloch article appeared House Majority Leader. Dick Armey issued a press release. That was sarcastically. Titled Army Applauds Vice President Gore for Ingenuity creatively and imagination. The press release said in part. Let me quote here quote. If the vice president created the Internet then I created the interstate highway system. Both were begun during the Eisenhower Administration. And I think I actually deserves a little credit here. It's common in Washington to steal an idea and claim it was yours all along. This strategy certainly worked for the administration on welfare reform and tax cuts but claiming credit for the Internet insults. It's real creators whose hard work and ingenuity can never be stolen and quote. This was followed shortly by a statement from then Senate majority leader. Trent Lott saying quote during my service in the United States Congress. I took the initiative in creating the paper clip. Lot refused to answer questions about whether or not he was. Also the fifth beatle end quote and so by that point the meme was well and truly often running the idea that Al Gore claimed credit for inventing. The Internet almost immediately became what it's been ever since a punchline for late night comedians it shares this distinction. I guess with the questionable claim that Gore and his then wife Tipper were the inspiration for the novel and Movie Love Story. But as. That's a bit beyond our purview. Here I did not investigate the veracity of the Love Story. The now common joke even made it into the presidential debates of the two thousand election during a back and forth about the calculation of HMO coverage in the first presidential debate of that year. Then candidate George W Bush zinged Gordon with the line quote. Not only did he invent the Internet but he invented the calculator and Quote Gore. Himself would often return to the gaff many times trying to defuse it with humor like this quote. I was pretty tired when I made that comment because I had been up very late the night before inventing the camcorder and quote declan mccullagh followed up with two more pieces in wired news covering the fallout from the media. Name that he himself had helped create. It all seemed to fit so well into the by this point firmly established narrative of Gore as the arrogant braggart quoting from McCulloch's third piece quote reinventing yourself and rewriting. Your resume is a form of high art in Washington. Then why the opprobrium heaped upon Gore simple? He was clumsy enough to get caught and quote. The problem is McCullough himself. Didn't investigate deeply enough to see that. In Fact Gore was responsible for some significant legislation that in the opinion of quite a few Internet. Pioneers was quite useful in the mediums early days in Short Gore. Kind of had a point even if he stated in a shall we say enthusiastic manner he kind of did have a hand in helping the Internet developed in his most recent book. The innovators Walter Isaacson says about this incident quote. It's a mark of our political discourse that one of the significant nonpartisan on behalf of American innovation. He speaking of the Gore Bill got turned into a punchline because of something that Gore never quite said end quote and years later no less partisan than Newt Gingrich who it should be pointed out. Light Gore is a well-known nerd and innovation policy. Wonk is willing to let Gore off the hook for the gaffe saying quote in all fairness. It's something Gore had worked on for a long time. Gore is not the father of the Internet but in all fairness Gore is the person who in Congress most systematically worked to make sure that we got to an Internet. The truth is and I worked with him. Starting in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight. When I got to Congress we were both part of a futures group the fact is in the Clinton administration. The world we had talked about in the eighties began to actually happen. And quote for what it's worth. Gore was inducted into the Internet Hall of fame but he was inducted in the category of global connectors. And Not in the category of Pioneers. Like vint CERF or Bob Metcalfe and not in the category of innovators alongside the likes of Tim Burners Lee Mark Andriessen or even Swartz so in conclusion. No Al Gore did not invent the Internet but technically he never actually said that he did in the end based on what I've been able to piece together about this. It's clear that Gore made a sloppy statement. That maybe you don't have to take too far out of context to come away with the impression he was claiming credit for bringing the Internet to life. But here's also the thing at least in my opinion most legislators even to this day have very little understanding of technology. They don't really understand how the Internet actually works and I'm not just talking about things like the series of tubes quote. I'm saying our politicians don't have even a base level understanding of how things like software and hardware and networking and digital technology actually function in the real world. And so that's kind of why we have such terrible laws governing things like patents and copyright and Net neutrality because since the legislators don't understand any of it on a very basic level because it's all weird Geeky Mumbo jumbo to them they end up just trusting the lobbyists to understand for them and write legislation for them so again. I didn't research this piece to exonerate or attack Al Gore. I don't actually care about what he said. On a partisan level at least my interests are only historical but I will make this one point. It's clear that Al Gore was an avid and early fan of technology and innovation of technologies role in our society and the ways that government can help or hinder that innovation. So if we're being honest don't you wish we had a few more politicians like Albor in Congress today? Who At least cared enough about the technology to try to understand it better? I'm saying we need more GEEKS and Congress Democrat geeks and Republican Geeks more gigs..

This one's called the blue marble and it was from POL seventeen. The last image taken by human being far enough out in space to see the planet hold the most published photograph in all of history. I do so many slide shows and presentations. I just never get nervous anymore. But I'm nervous before this one the very first climate underground conference here on Gore Farm. Al Gore's back and he's got a new slide. Show better take heed last October. The former Vice President Nobel Prize winner and Academy Award Winner for an inconvenient truth and activist restaurant tour. Founder of the Edible Schoolyard Alice. Waterson gathered farmers ranchers scientists shafts researchers and policymakers on his family farm in Carthage Tennessee for a riveting set of conversations about the world of food and regenerative agriculture in solving the climate crisis. They called the two day event the climate underground along with the conversations. Some of Nashville's hottest chefs joined Alice in creating a sustainable organic school. Lunch to highlight. The power of local school supported agriculture in nurturing the health of children and the land. This event happened long before the moment we will find ourselves in right now as the corona virus pandemic sweeps across the planet but it holds seeds and hope for a different approach to our future and the fate of the planet. Meal share in honor of birthday. The kitchen sisters present the climate underground as a child from first year my life all the way through until I was in college. I spent every summer here on this farm at Christmas and every spring vacation. My father told me how to recognize the best and most fertile soil with my hands in it and it was black and moist always believe agriculture in the food system are absolutely key to solving and mitigating the climate crisis. We have converted this farm to a whole variety of genitive practices a combination of plants and livestock with highly diverse cover crops and maximum use of no till the voiding synthetic insecticide. We harvested our first crop. According to these new practices in two thousand sixteen only three years ago. Some very excited that we have not only regenerative farmers but also scientists and entrepreneurs and chefs. We've got some really great. Where else course? Far and Carthage Tennessee.

Alice's also a committed advocate or the role that food and agriculture can play in protecting our environment. And you get started with the edible school projects really began. Then I had a child. I was a monetary teacher. The IDEAS HAVE MONTESSORI HAVE INFORMED. All of my work she believed in the education of the census ship believed in touching and tasting and smelling. When I started the edible. Schoolyard project is said. Food is subway to really open up the senses because it touches every one of them if we put in a garden and we put in the kitchen classroom. We could wake up. The young people who were have been sent sorely deprived many of them because of hunger and because poverty because of an indoctrination of fast food culture throughout most of human history the daily ritual and practice of collecting gathering preparing eating food together has been a key part of the connection between individuals and nature and in order to reestablish that connection for children you look for other opportunities than you found one in the school system. I mean that's the place where we can reach children when they're young and open idea of this is to have them fall in love with nature. Food is more than just food. Food is really about culture. We have been indoctrinated by fast food culture when we eat that we digest the values that come with the ideas uniformity. The ideas that we should have whatever we want whenever we want. It doesn't matter where it comes from cooking rusher farming stretcher we think advertising confers factor you the centerpiece of this project is a civilized sustainable school lunch. And before you focused on the school system and the edible schoolyard project your career as a chef was really transformative. What got you involved with that? It was all about taste for me. Taste and beauty. I had gone to France when I was eaten and it was a slow food nation. France kids came home for two hours to eat with their and every day people would go to the markets and their neighbor beautiful outdoor markets. And you bought only what was since.

"Is over. We've had an appeal. We've taken that appeal. There is no appeal from the United States Supreme Court. Let'S TRY TO ENVISION. What would happen if the if the Supreme Court doesn't shut down the recount right right? It's hard to game out because there are so many different scenarios right. Is there like the full statewide? Manual recount is something more you know modest Settled on right like just under votes over votes. Counted is a just certain counties like do they go revert back to that. I mean what if the Supreme Court never intervened in the first place because they had cast doubt on the Florida Supreme Court. You know a month earlier and a separate decision and and that sort of set things in a weird direction but you know there are scenarios where a limited recount gives the election to Gore or a full recount. Maybe affirms that Bush one on a very narrow vote but again if this all happens after the safe harbor maybe Congress questions it maybe. The Florida legislature goes through with their plan of affirming Bush's the winner regardless of the vote. And that's it. It's it's hard. That's this discrepancy is like what's important the you have uncertainty on one hand and certainty on the other right row. You have the certainty of Bush winning if you hold the recount and you have uncertainty on the other hand. Um and there are like a dozen prestige procedural Things that could have happened. If the recount continued there could have been more court cases different court cases right mom more narrow court cases but the bottom line is that there would have been some risk of Gore winning right and they couldn't tolerate it reckenthaller area so I think the you know part of takeaway here is that Bush Gore was not when the Supreme Court became political. The court has always been driven by ideology politics and power but Bush v Gore exposed. Just how shallow. And partisan the courts politics actually are and stripped away the veneer of impartiality and high mindedness that the court sort of hides behind and anyone who thinks after Bush v Gore the core functions as like an independent body separate from politics or that it even could function like that theoretically is just a rube. Just a complete fucking sucker wrote right. We should talk about the alternate world. We would all live in. Can you imagine there's been tons of research into? What would have happened right if you if you like? Imagine a fair election and it's extremely hard to say because there's there's so much bullshit going on like could hold everything else constant and if the ballots in Palm Beach County are designed different. Al Gore Wins Right. That's just like without controversy at this brand And the question is how different is the world we live in obviously were twenty years out. It's hard to say but the one really significant thing is that Al Gore was the first presidential candidate. I think to ever really significantly talk about global warming which at the time was like a punchline. Right right just like Oh my God. Is this one these? He's obsessed with this like the world's what are you talking about Al Fucking nerd. You Boring Nerd Let's let's see what the idiot has to say about this great? So do I think he could of like passed significantly? Global warming legislation. Like what would have been necessary at the time. Oh no probably not but it would have been on the political radar fifteen years at least before it was right The other thing is that you know Bush gets elected and then within a year plans and orchestrates. The nine eleven attack could all right so We WanNa end this episode on on you know a little more positive note and I think a good way to do it his You know the five majority justices in this case were rehnquist. Scalia Thomas O'Connor and Kennedy and Kennedy and of those Rehnquist and Scalia dead. That's right you may have been you know. I I think that overall worse in terms of if you just had to measure out like who's a worst human being threat to worst they are you can make the argument that like Kennedy's been more damaging because like he's got his wishy washy bullshit kind of vibe about him. Yeah but I think in reality for all being honest the these guys have had almost immeasurable harm that they've inflicted on the country greatest..

"Is it a punch card? Michael like e depends. But they're some that were punch-card right. Yeah the Supreme Court is looking at this and saying During this recount different counties are applying different standards to what they're saying is a vote or not vote for a certain candidate so if something is partially punched through or there's a hanging Chad or a dimple there aren't uniform standards across the state For our counting these votes and the thing is that's how all elections are working. But the the weird thing about this is that like. It's not the craziest argument that you know. There are different standards for how you count. Votes across different counties is that a violation of equal protection. The point though is that if it is then every presidential election in US history has been invalid under the equal protection right and the majority has like a very kind of weird Situation on their hands where they found they need to find the equal protection violation. But you need to get around to the obvious implications of it which are that. All elections are valid under the equal protection clause at least all federal elections any federal election. I could think of maybe outside of House Elections and how do they do that? They do that just by putting in a paragraph that says by the way This doesn't apply doesn't anywhere else you really. And so they really do this. They say this is only applicable to this election. This recount right now doesn't apply anywhere else. Which is absurd and be. I don't even recognize their right to do but I don't think that a court can say Oh Ignore the implications of my reasoning and just limit it to this. If you can't tighten the reasoning so that it's only applicable to this situation and you have to deal with the consequences and the Supreme Court. In in in the opinion they give a lot of Attention and energy to this idea that like you know you don't really have an individual right to vote in this country under the federal constitution and until the state vest this power in the people which is to say that they actually they lead off with that whole concept is there's no constitutional right to vote. Which is true and I. I'd always cracks me up whenever you do. It read voting rights case. Because you have to lead off first of all Fyi There's like no constitutional right to vote. Which I know I think every law student knows but like I think that if you ask the average person if there is a right to vote under the constitution they'd be like well. Yeah of course. That's like the big enough the the cornerstone of our democracy. That's motherfucker fuck and Thomas. Jefferson thought you were an idiot and they they they were like. Oh instead like the you know. The state will appoint like You know whatever. Thirty seven monocled Free to decide what's best for the state and so the you know. The courts have jumped through hoops to sort of create What is now functionally constitutional right to vote but doesn't really exist in the constitution itself. A part of the background for that by the way is that like the you know there were there were talks around this time that the Florida legislature they would just declare Bush the winner. The recount be damned the Florida Supreme Court. Be Damned. They'll just like pass a law that says Bush one and then they'll send Bush electors to the Electoral College. And that'll be that. And I think that this was a little bit of like the Supreme Court being the constitutional. If they WANNA do that. Yeah that's what they wanted to do. So they've that's how invalidate the recount right rats? Step one you've you find this Bullshit equal protection argument threat But now years you still have the second problem. Which is how do you utilize a reasoning that prevents the recount from being restarted or Redone you know. That's the obvious answer to that. It was like still. Let's all the votes counted and find out who won you have a constitutional violation. How do you fix it? So that's the question and they answer it by saying you can't fix it by using this Obscure Safe Harbor Provisions Which states that if your electors are submitted by December twelfth two thousand they're guaranteed to be counted by Congress and by the way this opinion is issued on December twelve. Right is this. This law is Federal Law Obscure Law. Basically says you know if you don't want be the results of your election to be challenged by by Congress. They just need to be submitted by this date. If you do it after that then Congress can technically intervene although in reality I think they never do would. It'd be bizarre. I think it's actually important to note too that lake the using this safe harbor provision. It's not essential it doesn't apply to everybody in the year. Two Thousand Twenty. You don't even use it and the question here is does Florida care more about the safe harbor provision right which is relevant once a century or about an accurate count of the votes of their constituents precedent. It you know. It's a rhetorical question when I say right but not everyone views it like that right and just a highlight like how kind of shoddy the reasoning is in this opinion number one first of all per curium which. I don't think we have we've mentioned which means No one justice is Putting his or her name on it to say I. It's the way that they would put procurement to say that it's like the opinion of the court but the way that I would view it as is a unsigned and that's exactly right exactly and so you automatically start to question why it's per curium. Because nobody wants to put their name on it and then number two just the languages facially. It's ridiculous so there's a quote here. It is obvious that the recount cannot be conducted in compliance with the requirements of equal protection and due process without substantial additional work. Okay I literally row. Ll like okay. So President I do have to say. I have some sympathy. This is too much. I I do this at work all the time. There's a big project like we have this big important goal and I'm like. Oh Wow I don't know about guys. Deadline seems way too soon right. Scalia looked at this and once a nap well and so we stiffly framed. The safe harbor thing was like would you want to submit the actual winners electors open to challenge verse possibly submitting the actual losers electors. Not Open to challenge in court was like clearly. It's the losers electors not open to challenge Florida. Wasser for sure. We're divining the the will of Florida's Lennon to ask the Florida Supreme Court. Who has already disagreed with us on this very on this very point. I mean it's the whole thing is treating the convenience of the Safe Harbor Provision Right which protects the integrity of the state selectors or some stupid shit. That didn't hasn't mattered in one hundred years like that As more important than the constitutional guarantee of equal protection right now. The reason they're doing this is because they don't actually care about the constitutional guarantee of equal protection. They don't think it's an act of violation of equal protection. They just are again like just twisting it every way they can to make sure that a Bush wins and be. There's no way that that it can be changed or reversed or anything right I mean they're they're saying that they understand Florida law better in the Florida Supreme Court right on there saying all types of Shit like that and the other thing about this is that they're saying by the way there's no time for a recount right out of time but they just stayed the fucking recount three days before all right first of all you have to stop and then three days later like. Oh my God she says you guys know that. There is your attitude. I Like I was looking at my watch and then I realized you're at a time as we're writing this is crazy anyway. Good luck in the next election. It's just it's so blatant if he makes me so angry it's it's one of the it's it's incredibly brazen big takeaways that like the Supreme Court doesn't have to be doing this at all in elections states and localities are setting these standards all the time. They're working through it. Florida has this recount problem. They're setting standards. The Florida Supreme Court is working on it the legislators into it and the US Supreme Court comes in here and says no just fucking stop right. Yeah the Florida. Supreme Court gave some pretty clear you direction based on the Florida Constitution. That like they wanted the votes counted and they said that's why the Florida constitution called for and this is all state law the mechanics of their elections. It's very complicated. It's not obvious. Why the Supreme Court is bugging in here? Well well it's political. I mean not obvious what the actual reason wouldn't if you were a real one legally obvious but politically. It's painfully and the petition from Bush's lawyers. That comes first to justice Kennedy Right. He's the one that brings it to conference. Let sounds like a section of the wikipedia that you read that I didn't say go for Kennedy is the one who brings it to conference Justices like Antony. Scalia think yes. The Supreme Court has to step in here and Justices like so bad. Imagine Scalia when it first became clear that they had the option of intervening. The fucking sheared raising three inches long. And here's the thing. Is that even if you try to be generous to these guys and be like well look. Maybe they're just going on their intuitions. It's totally backwards. All the justices who want to weigh in here in and overrule the Florida courts. Generally their intuitions are that the federal court should stay out of state business right. That's that's the other thing is like the Conservatives on the court constantly like when the federal government's trying to expand minority rights or something right the Conservatives will step in and be like ooh state issue. Sorry we would love to break is actually all the states Sorry you can't fuck around with this at all because you're the feds and then here all of a sudden they have zero respect. I'm sympathetic to your argument. That black people are full people but in South Carolina is not. I think it's our place I don't think so but Here we have very strong opinions on whether or not a dimpled ballot. Verse a half. Hanging Chad ballots should be counted. And so I just I want to say like we're we're sitting here and we're sort of divining. Ill intent from the strained reasoning here and I don't think that's hard. I don't think it's a stretch. I think it's like blatantly obvious but I also want to say like I know someone who clerked on the Supreme Court and at the end of Michael. I've got a friend who is a an MVP at Goldman? Well I.

"Their calls to Bush. Yeah Projects George W Bush. The winner in Florida and dusted appears the winner of the presidency of the United States. By morning people. Wake up and it's it's undecided you twenty-five votes away from Al Gore and put it in the undecided column and should they break for Bush on November eight th the next day the Florida's division of elections. They say that Bush won by a really small margin It's like seventeen hundred votes which is less than the point. Five percent which which means basically that a mandatory recount is triggered and by November tenth. The machine recounts have brought that lead down to like around three hundred votes so It's it's a fucking mess is what it is. Gore requests Manual recounts in four counties. And the shit show just gets more intense from there in Palm Beach County for example Ten thousand ballots were were set aside because they recorded no vote for president at all in a Volusia county. They Record Gore receiving negative sixteen thousand votes. So it's like what the fuck turned out not to be an error. So he's not that popular attention even as like a child like a teenager. Witnessing this was just like peeking under the the veil of American politics and seeing like this horrible writhing mass beneath where like everything was deeply corrupt and inaccurate and full of just like human error and And dark motivations and like it was just the first time. I think that a light had been shined on this part of the system and it was like deeply unsettling to everyone. I was eighteen at this time and I lived in Fort Lauderdale in Broward County which was sort of ground zero for all of this. It was one of the four counties that were supposed to do a manual recount along with Miami Dade and a couple other Miami Dade Broward Palm Beach and Volusia each with more registered Democrat. I voted in the election so I do not know if my vote counted and they were just like bizarre protests and it was all anybody talked about. And it's hard to really explain what it's like to have that be your first electoral experience. Even before all the election against there was like the fifty thousand voters that got purged from the Florida voter rolls. Because you know. They are supposedly felons but it turns out. A lot of them weren't felons than maybe misdemeanors maybe no rhyme at all in their all black or Hispanic and one estimate says that cost Gore five thousand votes in an election. He lost by three votes. Like a lot of the mad is Is just inevitable in organic and you know. There's a lot of tension because people don't really know what's going to happen but some of it was just as manufactured bullshit most famously the quote Unquote Brooks Brothers Riot. I have a question What what is manage where store? I knew the question Yeah it's just a suiting suiting store. They know it's just It's like your standard bear made rain like mid to low range like the U. I should go to men's warehouse and then you realize that that's not nice enough for your Fans y'all actually like the way you look and then you go to brooks brothers to pay like seven hundred dollars for a suit that Some fucking idiot sells you and then great right there. That's not it's not at Brooks brothers. Ritz brothers was unscathed thankfully Basically what happened was in Miami. Dade there were these Ten thousand or so ballots under votes right. These ballots that hadn't recorded boats. And and we're getting close to one of the deadlines here and miami-dade is concerned about being able to recount all the votes. So they say well. We're going to look at these ten thousand ballots And they kind of retire to a smaller room so they can segregate them out and start manually assessing each ballot and there was a lot of concern that there would be enough votes for Gore in this in this batch to change the outcome of the election so Republicans flew in all these like forty to fifty year old lawyers. Of course they're like almost all lawyers and when we say Republicans like the actual Republican Party right in DC right now. This is like yeah. This is like Roger Stone. Who's like you know a fucking Republican rat fucker back into the seventies you know and Nixon guy and with the Nixon to right? That's right that's correct dresses like a villain in who framed Roger Rabbit. It's all Republican aides and lawyers. Who Fly in there all on their like blackberries. They're all new fancy suits Protesting and they get violent. They they're like punching people Someone from the DNC literally assaulted the and and they and they succeed. They shut down. This recount like two hours after they fucking very important to note that. This is the only successful riot in American history every every time that like like someone is protesting police violence or whatever they just get fucking wiped out with tear gas but fucking fifty Republican lawyers. Show up in Miami Dade and they're like well whatever they want window whatever they want just let us know immediately capitulate act exactly how they do with their wives and you know got. Oh Jesus I think it's good to talk about the riot because it It's a good preview for the next twenty years of Republican politics and the way they treat like elections generally democrats and the idea that you know any democratic efforts at like getting. Both counted are illegitimate. Yeah fraudulent and they can take whatever means you know necessarily their hands to shut that down all they gotta do. All they want to do is win elections so they don't have shit and maybe the most like emblematic aspect of how On its face corrupt. The entire process was is Katherine Harris. Who is the Florida Secretary of state and in her role as the Florida? Secretary of State is responsible for oversight of the elections and the certification of the results but she's also the CO chair of Bush's campaign in Florida. And you want to understand what type of person she is that she's another type of important American political archetype which is You know there are movies. About where the protagonist is like a mother and the anti-communist is a woman who is extremely mean and Through sheer belligerence and force of will dominates the local PTA. Yes and she wears like a little too much makeup. And you're like she just seems like a force of nature just plowing through everything in front of her at to get whatever she wants and At the expense of the Children. Act which is why this and I think this this archetype was made famous a few years later with Sarah Palin. Who's like the real Embodiment of it. And then you had a couple of hours like Michele Bachmann But you know I think Katherine Harris is the first time. Pta Mom was always like on the political scene in American in American Life. So she was the one that oversaw the purging of the voter rolls right on the on the grounds that they were extensively. Fallon's even though maybe not and you know and she's the one that sort of starts over like is like in charge of the oversight of this process and was just nakedly corrupt and favouring Bush at every single step like not even trying a little bit to hide it rent which I mean you know. Her boss was Bush's brother and they're both you know. Republican minor minor. Point Governor of Florida can have good all right at the time. Florida law required that votes. Be Certified within seven days of the election so The Florida Circuit Court ruled that Counties had to certify their their results but they could amend at a later date At the Secretary of State Katherine Harris's discretion So what happened. Was she issued criteria for these late filings and she asked that the counties that were late in filing that they provide their justifications for why they relate. That sounds fair. Yeah no. We'll cheap proceeded to reject them all outright and declare that she's going to certify the results the next day anyway. Florida's Secretary of State Katherine Harris has announced that she is rejecting any further at the reasons given in their requests are insufficient to warrant waiver of the unambiguous filing deadline. It's her prerogative so right Yup. So okay the Florida. Supreme Court is then like Oh wait a minute there. They step in and they her from certifying those results which allows the the the recounts Continue Republicans of course are pissed and on December eighth Following a bunch of legal more legal bullshit the Florida Supreme Court ordered a statewide manual recount. Yeah and then that's where Bush petitions the Supreme Court Not For the first time during the case but for the first time that really matters I think to stay the recount and to halt the recount. This case what you need to do is show that if it proceeded would be irreparably harmed right right which is usually like a good example of irreparable harm is like someone is about to destroy like priceless antiques. Right they literally literally probably cannot be replaced You know and not a subject any monetary value. An court might be like all right. Don't do that because if you do it. We can't reverse it right. That's the whole point. So Supreme Court grants it. Despite the fact that there's almost no question that there's no real irreparable harm of allowing the the recount to continue the descent in that case which goes five to four Concert Know Republicans versus Democrats essentially says how can counting every vote be irreparable harm and Retort from the majority as well no no. That's not what we're saying. What we're saying. Is that if you accidentally count? Illegal votes non-legal votes that would be irreparable harm but doesn't make any sense at all you could just let let it continue. And then if you want to impose standards on it after the fact or scrapped the whole thing right. You could easily do that. It's the definition of reparable. Harm right you could just say no actually votes that are just dimples and not punched out. Chad's don't count. And they're all subtracted from the total and that's it you know after this happens. It seems pretty clear how the whole thing is about to shake out right because you still have the main case that essentially decides whether a recount will eventually continue That's coming up in a couple of days and now that this has gone five to four. It seems pretty clear that that's going to go five to four to ram so I've been thinking about this in. I thought I had about like. Why is she the stay that makes the most sense to me is? Is this you know? At one point. The margin was like seventeen hundred votes that game all the way down to like three hundred twenty votes or whatever and if you're sitting there saying well in four days we're GonNa say this recount is a no go. The last thing you want is in between now and then further results to switch right. You'd much rather affirming a very thin lead for Bush. Then saying that's actually. It's exactly why they did it right because they had the lead. So imagine you're a conservative justice. Who just so happened to one goal? And that's electing Republican president. What would you do? Bush has the lead now. You can't risk it you halt it right now. And then. Whatever decision you eventually make will be made under the presumption that Bush. The defacto winner read so that. That's sort of where their heads out with the stay. I think pretty clearly you know they need to essentially find a reason to invalidate the recount but also need to find the reason that the recount can't be restarted or redone. And that's kind of a problem because if there's a problem with the recount the obvious solution is to just fix it and count the votes. So how they do this. It's there are two pieces to it. One is they talk about the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. And they need to do this. Because also these are all state laws So they really don't have any place to be weighing in on this in any event so they need to find a federal hook so the federal constitution says All citizens are guaranteed equal protection under the law and the Supreme Court says well Look Needy you count votes one way in one county and you recount them and other in another county that doesn't sound very equal to me completely wrong and just flies in the face of how elections are done when we're talking about different standards being used in different counties so during the recount. It's looking at the the voter I guess..

"This seriously guy. Oh, come on. Let's do something about what? So as a journalist, what's the upshot of this? Well, what's working, and what doesn't a lot of what has been tried has failed? The there. I wrote about this. I back in two thousand six when the time magazine had a covered the cover image is a polar bear with some open water. And it said be worried the very worried, and it turns out that was the scariest science of all see, Gary if you're a polar bear well. No, no, no. Here's the deal. Someone telling you to be worried these psychologists say that what are they thinking? We have peer reviewed scientists says. That's you don't you can't impose. Okay. So you can't say tell someone be worried you have to have something in front of him that convinces them on their own that they should be worried. Right. And that that there was that's hard. Because you know, we all those who really understand the system have this desperate urge. We we have consensus there is scientific consensus, and there's also consensus that human activity. I mean, not just recent but like over the entire century. Has contributed to climate change. But the remains a powerful movement to deny this fact. Okay. So I asked Al Gore what he might think is the source of that denial is check it out. In Tennessee where I live. There's an old saying that if you see a turtle on top of a fence post, you can be pretty sure it didn't get there by itself. And the same thing is true of this persistent climate denial hundred years ago, one of the great Muckraker. Journalists Upton Sinclair road, it's difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon him not understanding it, and I think that's very much at play here. I think that the the coal industry oil industry, certainly the tar sands industry, and now to some extent the gas natural gas, methane industry fracking's part of that as well racking is all part of it. They have seen this rising awareness that we face an existential crisis as human civilization. They see it as an existential crisis for their companies and. Just as the tobacco companies delayed for forty years the translation of the scientific consensus on smoking and health into appropriate public policy. Their whole plan is to delay, the recognition of what the science really is telling us for long enough that they can squeeze more profits out of using the sky as an open sewer. So Annie is. We'll objective evidence went out eventually well, scientists and journalists like to think so so what would you say is your responsibility as a journalist there's a conflict, you know, this in your journalistic ethos, we have to give both sides equal time you were trained this in journalism school. I think the first rule for journalists. And if you're writing a story about climate change is what kind of stories this today. If it's a story about a paper that just came out on CIs trends in the Arctic, you talk to people who studies CIs, you don't call Greenpeace, and you don't call a think tank that's paid for by fossil fuels. I don't know that all journalists follow that. Now. They it right. Yeah. You know, I asked Al Gore if politics failed in addressing the root of American climate change denial as check out his response. Where a capitalist democracy. This is not some secret that people care about money that corporations care about money. So can it is am I allowed to say that these companies were not handed a political solution political economic solution to that very problem to their own essential?
