Gracious Hillary Leaves Romney Still Looking for Any Way to Be Taken Seriously

Daily Kos: Hillary: Romney's ads a 'waste of money': "“I am out of politics, and I haven’t seen any of the ads that you’re talking about,” Clinton said, who has appeared in two Romney ads thus far. “But I have to say it’s a waste of money. Everybody knows I ran against President Obama in 2008, that’s hardly news. Everybody knows we ran a hard fought campaign and he won. And I have been honored to serve as his secretary of state.”"

Romney may have this unpopularity problem. And we may be victims of his billion dollar effort to achieve at least a little adoration somewhere. But he sure didn't get it from Hillary after quoting her shame on Barack outburst from 2008. No one forgets what 2008 was and the whole world now admires Hillary more than almost anyone. So when she puts Mitt in his place, that cannot feel good. And Mitt's calendar doesn't look appealing. He is about to be linked with his elitist London Olympics dancing horses who cost more to maintain than a village of your choice. And then he is sure to gaffe when he hits Israel minus any foreign policy experience. And when he comes back, he will have missed a few weeks of continued outcry over his cop impersonations, his relationship with Paul Singer and the newest criminal on the block Sheldon Adelson, his tax returns and the Lord knows what else. Maybe he really wants pity. But it's hard to feel when you consider that the only way he can win is to hoodwink us all. That is not a way to win sympathy.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
