A lamb among wolves, 16 August 2008
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

While I certainly don't agree with many of her politics, the story of Granny D certainly is inspiring. Irrelevant of her stand on issues, her insistence that the system is broken and that special interests are destroying the democratic process are probably the most important issues in politics today. My only gripe is that both parties are controlled by these interests and that Halliburton (the perennial whipping boy of the Left) is as much a risk to the democratic system as MoveOn (the new whipping boy of the Right).

Unfortunately, whether or not Granny was a Democrat or Republican, I think BOTH sides of the political aisle are the problem--though Granny's positions are mostly anti-Republican. There were several amazingly telling moments in the film such as when Howard Dean, "the outsider and man of the people" snubbed her at a rally--"forgetting" to greet her and have his picture taken with her. I also loved it when this leader of the Democratic party said that he was more interested in spreading party funds to those who articulate the party's ideals and not necessarily to those who will win. So, of course, Granny is treated like a leper even though her positions are perfectly in line with what the party CLAIMS to represent! The other was when the weasel from her own political party lied and supported the opposition. That's because regardless of party, the system is more afraid of non-party players than each other! This is the point I really got from the film--that the lady had the rug pulled out from under her by her own party! Unfortunately, this film is just a nice documentary about a nice lady and politics as usual!! A very nice documentary--too bad in the end it probably won't make any difference in the political landscape!
