Greenwald: "Let's run the Hate Talk Express off the road."
In a message received (and posted elsewhere by) a friend, Robert Greenwald of BraveNewFilms.org provides a collection of targeted "The Real McCain" videos. Greenwald's objective is to shed some light and truth in order to provide leverage for use derailing the "Hate Talk Express."
I haven't watched the videos yet, but judging by the topics I thought it was worth sharing the content of the message.
Message and videos below the fold.
NOTE: I stripped the original table formatting due to post errors, and replaced his video image placeholders with some of my own due to where he stored the images.

Run the Hate Talk Express Off the Road

Things have gotten extremely nasty in recent weeks, as the Republican attack machine has been stuck in overdrive. John McCain and his supporters are traveling the country at a rapid pace, inciting hateful rhetoric at campaign events, and grossly misrepresenting McCain's own policies in a desperate attempt to make him more palatable. The McCain campaign is even attacking ACORN, a widely respected voter registration organization, claiming ACORN knowingly participated in "voter fraud." In reality, this is just another calculated attempt by the McCain campaign and the RNC to suppress new and marginalized voters.
Like I discussed with Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report last week, our videos travel faster than the Hate Talk Express. Below are 15 videos for the next 15 days. They present the REAL McCain -- the one he doesn't want the public to see -- as well as information on issues affecting all of us at this critical juncture. Issues like the economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, health care, the environment, and the fundamental right to vote.
Make sure all of your friends (especially those who don't agree with you politically or are still on the fence) see each and every one of these videos. Post them on blogs and networking sites like Digg -- our best means of reaching those outside the choir. Get your friends to sign up for a free Brave New Films video subscription. Get them to enter our REAL McCain contest: What would you ask McCain? (The 50 best answers win a free, limited edition, REAL McCain t-shirt!) And support Brave New Films by donating $15 so that we can continue creating hard-hitting videos like the 15 seen here.
