 I saw this video over at Free North Carolina.  I hated it.  Now, I have to tell you why.

The video is well produced and the speaker has good tone, modulation, and pace.  But what she is saying is wrong, misdirecting, and often irrelevant.  The claims she makes for the Electoral College are simply unsupported by the facts and counter to history.  One would expect a university professor to be more on the ball when it comes to stuff like academic accuracy than this.  The logic errors themselves are astonishing for just a 5 minute clip.

Claim 1. The Electoral College (EC) protects us from the Tyranny of the Mob.   FALSE.
