A telling glimpse into the future that yes, grassroots candidates with no money can aim big via the new power of the Internet, and renewed hope for basic human rights that have devolved into pipe dreams. Or in other words, better luck next time, Jimmy.

As a cautionary tale about too much too soon, Damn! works reasonably well.
