I'm no book reviewer, but "Crashing the Gate," is a must read that incorporates Jerome and Markos' ideas of making Democrats winners at the polls again. They lay out a strategy that includes distancing the Dems from the consultant elites who pocket money with no real consequences for their ineptitude while trying to get special interest groups to work together instead of prioritizing their own issues against the benefit of the party.
"CTG" outlines how the Republican noise machine-financed by the wealthy elites have honed their messaging techniques over the last twenty years or so into a force that has effectively changed the landscape of political debate and has left the Democrats with no real answer to it. Not until now that is. Markos and Jerome give us examples from their own travels and you'll be nodding your head in agreement as the pages unfold.
"Crashing the Gate," details how the netroots is opening up a new gateway to implement the changes they suggest and we are all part of this new on-line activism now. The chapters on Russ Feingold, Paul Hackett and Howard Dean are excellent as well and provide the backdrop that highlights their vision for success. Make sure you grab yourself a copy.
