My third appearance on DemsTV is up on their website, and I think the video podcast will be up on iTunes soon, if it’s not already. I’m on with Matt Stoller of BOPNews, and Garance Franke-Ruta of American Prospect. For what it’s worth I “won” again. I guess two out of three ain’t bad.
I hadn’t expected to win, so my 30-second “victory lap” was a little garbled. I gave a shout out to Lucas Dawson as a kind of modern Rosa Parks. But I forgot to tie it back in at the end. What I wanted to say by way of wrapping up was this: before you ride in the “front of the bus,” you have to survive. Lucas Dawson stayed alive, so he still has a shot at equality and all the rest.
Anyway, I think this television thing is getting a bit better. I no longer have the urge to run from the room upon seeing myself on screen.
