Hello fellow Agitators,
I want to let you know about a documentary airing tonight, Thursday night, about a very special person: my friend, Doris "Granny D" Haddock.
In 1999, Granny D walked across America to call attention to the amount of money used to "buy" our elected officials. Then, in 2004, at the last minute, she ran as New Hampshire's Democratic party nominee for the U.S. Senate. She ran a grassroots campaign based on politics for, of and by the people. She's a true populist, and an example the kind of scrappy fighter we all should aspire to be.
The documentary airs tonight on HBO at 9 pm EST.
Jim Hightower is an American populist, spreading his message of democratic hope via national radio commentaries, columns, books, his award-winning monthly newsletter (The Hightower Lowdown) and barnstorming tours all across America.
