FYI, a link to the lo-res version:
http://www.bushin30seconds.org/view/10_small.shtml

Other ads too:
http://www.bushin30seconds.org/

I like the idea of the site, but I almost hope they don't make it to the Superbowl--then they'll spend their money (like Apple) running more spots more cheaply in more varied ways.

Stupid fearmongering. I hate political groups that scare seniors for their vote.

moveon.org and bushin30seconds.org aren't fear mongering....there actually IS a lot to be afraid of in bush and his cronies. the problem is that too many people are turning a blind eye to all the corruption and incompetence of his adminstration.

I'm still happily running OS 9. I do disagree fear mongering and hate speech from the Left or Right. Campaigns on both sides she be about what they plan to do in office.

I am thinking of running OS 9 again, but the only problem is that there are now so many OS X apps. I never really ran OS X until 10.1, and even then, it was pretty bad.

This Ad (http://www.bushin30seconds.org/view/01_small.shtml) was just rejected by CBS just yesterday to be shown in the SuperBowl

FYI, this is not campaign material for any of the Democratic candidates. It was sponsored by an independent organization that took submissions from the general public.

I suggest people read the about page (http://bushin30seconds.org/aboutus.html) to get more information about what the project is really about.

CBS rejected it?! I love that ad. It was my choice for the best of the lot of very good ads. I hope moveon.org is suing CBS for infringement of their free speech rights. If they have the money and space is still available, they should be able to air the ad. Since when is the political content of speech a justifiable reason for not allowing access?
