Nation-Building >> Bush in 30 Seconds: People's Choice winner | return to front page

"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Bush in 30 Seconds: People's Choice winner

posted by Aziz P. at Tuesday, January 13, 2004 permalink View blog reactions
The winner of the Bush in 30 Seconds ad contest by has been announced. This ad was chosen by hunreds of thousands of voters at MoveOn above all other ads - and in an ironic yet not unexpected twist, the ad has a profoundly conservative message.

Click below to view the ad in its entirety - there is no dialouge, just music and text, so I can't excerpt it, just watch it for yourself.

 High-bandwidth (cable or DSL)
 Low-bandwidth (dialup)

Note that MoveOn is considering running this ad in the Superbowl. I really wish we could have had our Dean Nation "I am Howard Dean" ad play there, but I suppose it was not meant to be.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
