Brilliant, or scary, or both?

The Democratic National Committee is rolling out an effort called "The Accountablity Project" to record Republicans at campaign events at catch them in "unseemly behavior," Politico reports:

THE DNC today opens an “iReport” for politics -- a website that a party official says will be “devoted to citizens uploading content from political events, including audio and video -- a central resource to hold Republicans accountable for misleading claims, lies, and unseemly behavior … We can't afford to depend on the media or campaign trackers to be present and capture every extreme position taken, … so this site … will increase the number of people out there who with nothing more than a smart phone at hand can hold Republicans accountable.”

To be announced today in a mass e-mail from DNC Research Director Shauna Daly: “The Accountability Project allows you to submit videos, recordings, and other items for publication online … If you have anything that can record video -- from a cell phone to a video camera -- you can go to public events and record what candidates say. --If you receive any sort of mailings or literature from candidates, you can post them online for all to see. --And if you hear of any upcoming public events for Republican candidates in your area, you can let everyone know … Please help fight back against Republicans' shadowy tactics.”

From the sounds of it, the project is a formal way of packaging the kinds of videos that have been already collected for years on candidates -- from Palin supporters parading with an Obama monkey in Johnstown to Joe Biden getting caught saying he doesn't support clean coal technology on an Ohio rope-line.
