Moveon.org’s winning commercial
MoveOn.org, a progressive website, sponsored the Bush in 30 Seconds contest. The contest solicited user-created anti-Bush commercials; the winning commercial will be played throughout the week of January 18-24 to coincide with the next State of the Union address.
The winning commercial is simply amazing. Salon describes it as: “Over a minor-key acoustic guitar tune, Fisher’s ‘Child’s Pay’ spot shows a series of stoic, worn-looking American children laboring at low-wage adult jobs — a boy washes dishes, a girl in a baggy pink maid’s uniform cleans a hallway, another works in a factory. It ends with white words on a black screen: ‘Guess who’s going to pay off President Bush’s $1 trillion deficit?'”
