subversive activities

Here's a drama documentary about an event that, from an environmental perspective, was perhaps the worst piece of news in the last 10 years.

Recount follows the machinations around the Florida recount in 2000 that led to Bush's presidency. It stars Kevin Spacey and Denis Leary (pictured), John Hurt, Laura Dern, Tom Wilkinson and Ed Begley Jr. It's broadcast in US and Canada tonight. A preview in Salon says:

'It makes it painfully and inescapably clear that the Bush team, the GOP, and ultimately the five Republican justices on the Supreme Court, did nothing less than successfully subvert American democracy in order to get their man in office.'
