“On a national level, to use a computer term — our democracy has been hacked,”Give me a freaking break. Until he was shoved out of it, Al Gore was an enthusiastic participant in the hacking of our democracy, doing all he could to remain a politician beholden to corporate interests. And he would have gladly kept all the corporate money he could get in his grubby hands until he might have left office in 2008, had the Supreme Court not stolen the 2000 election from him.
And now we're supposed to consider him pure, some kind of said? I certainly do not.
