Plus there’s Bush’s Backfire in the archives, and don’t forget to sign up for Sneak Previews while you’re over there.
We’re proud to announce the launch of a brand-new media enterprise, called The Hightower Download!
Every week, we’ll be releasing a new video animation featuring Hightower– and our first episode is a must-see: “Bush’s Backfire.” Is there that sums up the stubbornly disastrous administration of George W better than the Iraq debacle? Especially in light of last week’s announcement on upping the number of troops deployed to the civil war that Bush himself created!
You can also sign up to get sneak previews of each week’s episode– which means you’ll get to watch a day before the rest of the world does. So then: what’re you waitin’ for? Head over to The Hightower Download and get on board!
You know you loved that smiling mug shot of Tom Delay as much as we did, but hey — the fight to save democracy from his kind of politics isn’t over yet. What kind of politics? Well, the stealing of a Congress, of course!
Check out the latest from Brave New Films, “The Big Buy: Tom Delay’s Stolen Congress,” to learn more about the shenanigans this guy and his cronies pulled — and how the whole nation has to live with the aftermath. Hightower himself is featured throughout the film; here’s a couple of clips to get you started:
