MAYDAY PAC and MoveOn.org are hosting a super-awesome video contest:

More from MAYDAY:

Inspired by MoveOn’s “Bush in 30 seconds” video ad contest from a decade ago, we’re asking citizens to create 30-second video ads that could be aired on national TV. Our all-star panel of judges – George Takei, Jason Alexander, Shepard Fairey, Zephyr Teachout, Marianne Williamson, Baratunde Thurston, Anna Galland and Cenk Uygur – will review the top entries and select the winners. 

We will feature and promote the winning ads on our site and on the web, and if the data shows it makes sense for the campaigns, we may air the ads in the districts.

Wow. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, right? Well, free-market, limited-government group American Commitment decided to get in on it, too:

Steyer’s certainly an excellent ad subject:

Yesterday, American Commitment’s president Phil Kerpen made a little prediction:

We’re leading the public voting, but I suspect they’ll come up with a reason to not declare us the winner.

Looks like he may have been on to something:

Hmmm …

Interesting timing. Because yeah, American Commitment is winning. And not by a little bit:

According to MAYDAY’s rules, the “all-star panel of judges” will be choosing from the top entries. And it’s pretty clear who’s at the top.

Like for “Thurdsday”?

Oof.

Just par for the progressive course, right?

(That’s a rhetorical question.)

Three cheers for hypocrisy!

So there is that.

Why didn’t they think of that sooner?
