Host Ethan Scarl speaks with Richard Hayes Phillips, who has been the leading investigator of the fraudulent 2004 presidential election in Ohio. His work was relied upon by John Conyers in challenging the Ohio electors in Congress, by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. in his article for Rolling Stone magazine, and by Algenon L. Marbley in issuing his federal court order protecting the ballots from destruction. Assisted by teams of volunteers equipped with digital cameras, Phillips amassed some 30,000 images of forensic evidence. Then he analyzed it all himself, examining 126,000 ballots, 127 poll books, and 141 voter signature books from 18 counties in Ohio. Phillips' long-awaited book, "Witness to a Crime: A Citizens' Audit of an American Election," was published in April.

For the Old Mole September 15, 2008

I’m here to confess that I have been as mesmerized as anyone by the Republican nominee for vice president.

In the words of Fafblog,

there's a brand new political superstar on the scene and she's tough as nails and the media won't leave her alone and she's a rough-and-tumble Alaskan hockey mom and why are they asking all these questions and she is the pure reincarnation of the invincible Anglo-Saxon frontier earth mother and stop picking on her!

Old Mole Variety Hour for September 15, 2008

program date: 
Sun, 09/14/2008

Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program features the life and music of Victor Jara, the legendary singer-songwriter who helped elect the democratic-socialist President of Chile Salvador Allende, and was murdered by the Pinochet coup supported by the US in 1973.  His music lives on, as we hear today.  Also on the show, Bill Resnick talks with Paul Joseph about the possibility that Americans are becoming  more peaceful -- or at least less patient with war, and how that might lead to a more potent  peace movement.  The Well-read Red, Frann Michel, takes on Sarah Palin, and Clayton Morgareidge analyzes the political rhetoric of the two major parties.  To hear the whole show, hit the arrow above.  For individual segments, go to the links below:

Power versus Compassion in Presidential Campaign Rhetoric

    If the Presidential campaign were a football game, it’s beginning to look like the Republicans have the ball and the Democrats are playing defense.  The Republicans attack, and the Democrats answer.  The aggressor controls the game,  which makes the Democrats look like losers.  Why does this happen?  I don’t think it’s just because Republicans are meaner than the Democrats. 

Choose Your Rhetoric: Power or Compassion?

At the rhetorical level, there is quite a difference between the Democrats and the Republicans.  Clayton Morgareidge tries to describe that difference and what it says about the nation's political psychology. You can read this piece here.
