Mike Gravel

Mike Gravel on the Libertarian Party, Nuclear War, and Spineless Democrats


A week ago, I had a lengthy conversation with Mike Gravel about his run for the LP nomination. To my knowledge, this was before he cut the "Obama Girl" video, but it makes an interesting contrast… if you were told "a former Democratic senator has entered the Libertarian race on a platform of direct democracy and radical civil rights expansions," you'd probably thoughtfully stroke your goatee. When you're told "wacky video guy Mike Gravel said something," you laugh and move on.

I've uploaded the whole 90-minute talk here, and I'm taking my sweet time transcribing it but want to make it available before a coming reason event with Gravel and other Libertarian candidates.
