Bush in 30 Seconds...

Create a TV ad that tells the truth about George W. Bush.

Sick of the propaganda being beamed at you from the current administration's media mavens? Here's a new way to fight back: Enter MoveOn.org Voter Fund's political ad contest. You don't have to be formally trained in the art of filmmaking, just ready, willing and able to create an ad that tells the truth about George Bush.

All eligible submissions will be posted on this web site and rated by visitors. The top rated ads will then be voted on by our panel of esteemed judges, including Michael Moore, Donna Brazile, Jack Black, Janeane Garofalo, and Gus Van Sant. The winning ad idea will be broadcast on television during the week of Bush's 2004 State of the Union address, and the winner will receive a recording of the ad as broadcast.

To enter, just make a 30 second ad and submit it through this web site. Submissions will be accepted between November 24th and December 5th, 2003 and voting on the site will run between December 15th and December 30th, 2003.

Before you make your entry, you'll want to review the submission guidelines, and if you really want to know all the details, you can review the official rules. Good luck! We look forward to seeing your submission.

Want to help spread the word about the contest? Just download and post this poster in places where entrants might hang out.

Sounds great! I'm glad the panel of esteemed judges will include such truth seekers as Michael Moore.....

"Michael Moore, Donna Brazile, Jack Black, Janeane Garofalo, and Gus Van Sant."

Would you say this panel of "esteemed Judges" is fair and unbiased and will give a positive add about Bush as much consideration as a negative one?

They're as "fair and unbiased" as Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, and Roger Ailes (former RNC head and first / current FOX News head) would be on the same subject.

This GOP quest for objectivity is about as laughable as Ponce de Leon's quest for the fountain of youth.

Melon,

"They're as "fair and unbiased" as Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, and Roger Ailes (former RNC head and first / current FOX News head) would be on the same subject."

So your saying Mr. Moore will give my 30 second add as much consideration as anyone elses?

"This GOP quest for objectivity is about as laughable as Ponce de Leon's quest for the fountain of youth."

The look on Howard Deans face when being criticized beats both.

That's ridiculous. Read the ad again, do you think they're looking for an ad that puts Bush in positive light?

Will Bush's campaign be "fair and unbalanced" and give positive light where warranted with his opponents?

Well then why not be honest and simply state, "were looking for NEGATIVE adds about Bush"?

About as much of a chance as FOX News living up to its unlawful trademark.

I wouldn't start talking about looks on faces, because you'll lose that battle every time.

Is that the working title for your entry about Bush? That's good...

Melon,

"I wouldn't start talking about looks on faces, because you'll lose that battle every time."

Before I saw Howard Dean's face during a period of criticism, I would agree.

I wish I'd watched that Democratic debate last night. I haven't been watching the debates but I'm upset about Dean's remarks about Southerners and the Confederate flag (I wouldn't be caught dead with one of those things)..........so I wish I'd seen his face.

Having paid attention to Howard Dean from the beginning, I've known that he deviates from the standard party platform in regards to gun control. Having heard his comments in reference to courting Southern whites, including those waiving the "Confederate flags," I personally knew that the key importance to the statement was not the flag, but about the working class Southern males who currently vote Republican.

While I do think that the comment was in poor taste, I think most of the Democratic candidates are resorting to the same over-PC attitude that has scared many people out of the party. If the best thing that these candidates have to offer is to personally attack each other and blow things out of proportion, then the Democratic Party is in trouble in 2004.
