A Victory for Democracy

Yesterday, I blogged about the censorship of former Senator Mike Gravel from the upcoming New Hampshire Democratic Presidential Debate. Well, today I read some awesome news from the Gravel 2008 campaign site:

Senator Gravel would like to thank each and every one of you who worked so hard to get him into the New Hampshire Democratic Presidential Debate. This invitation is a direct result of the dedication and work of those of you who have stood up for this campaign in the last 72 hours. This is absolute proof that the people working together can stand up to corporate media and have our voices heard. Senator Gravel has said all along that this is your campaign and today your voices have been heard loud and clear.

Our work has only just begun. Again, thank you to all of you.

  1. Yay! Now we can only hope that they don’t decide to treat him like a “potted plant”!

  2. While we’re on the subject of analogies and potted plants, what sort of potted plant would Gravel be? Personally, I think he’s more the kind from Little Shop of Horrors than from Hitchhiker’s Guide
