PUMA Movie Director on Unusable Signal Tonight

The new documentary film "The Audacity of Democracy" (starring Tommy Christopher) came out this week, and it is full of surprises.

The film documents the PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) movement to elect John McCain/defeat Barack Obama, and that movement's political face, PUMAPAC. The film's director, Brad Mays, shows the movement from the inside, almost as an embedded reporter might. What's remarkable to me, then, is that even as told from the PUMA point of view, the film can't escape their utter failure.

What it also does, however, is to humanize the characters in this drama.

I'll be talking with Brad Mays tonight, along with Christina Cedeno of YestoDemocracy.com, another of the players in this story. Her site conducted reams of research in opposition to PUMA and their "birfer" brethren.

We may also be joined by Will Bower, a founder of PUMA.

Here's the latest trailer for the film. The show starts at 11 pm EDT. You can click the button to listen live after 11, or go to the show's homepage to download the archive after that.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
