Troofer vid among films in Democratic National Convention competition

A couple of new films have been posted at the DNC's "Cinemocracy" site, and they are lulus.

Bodies--the title refers to the people who jumped from the twin towers on 9/11--is a straight Troofer document:

"Bombs from the inside blew the towers down."

While Home in a Grave is a psychotic comparison of alleged FEMA "detainment centers" to Nazi extermination camps, right down to the gassings:

These will win the hearts and minds of America. (More on Cinemocracy here und here.)

Update: Had to use the Youtube versions because the embed codes at the Cinemocracy site are still screwed up. Take care of that, Dems, will you?

Update II: Post: "Bloggers to have 'unprecedented access' during DNC":

The DNCC announced today that bloggers credentialed as part of the DemConvention State Blogger Corps will be seated next to their respective state delegations on the DNC convention floor at the Pepsi Center in Denver, giving them "unprecedented access" to those they are covering.

Leah D. Daughtry, CEO of the DNCC, said in a press release, "Time and again, we talk about our commitment to bring down the walls of the Pepsi Center and engage more people in the Convention experience using new technology and other creative means. Granting unprecedented access to our state bloggers shows we are serious about making this an inclusive, accessible event."

The Rocky adds the conditions:
Bloggers will be credentialed for the Democratic National Convention, officials announced this afternoon.

The Democratic National Convention Committee said bloggers must apply by April 15 and will be held to strict criteria, including having been in existence six months prior to requesting credentials and have at least 120 politically related blog posts.

Bloggers must also submit their daily audience and list their authority based on Technorati statistics.
List their authority? What does that even mean? Whatever, I'll give it a shot. Somehow, though, I don't think I'll be selected.
