lost your momentum?
I spent about four hours yesterday afternoon not working or enjoying the sun, not planning my future or paying bills, but watching homemade Obama ads. It’s totally addictive.
The competition, launched by MoveOn.org, is what grassroots organizing looks like in our times. You can watch one submission after another – from the professional to the DIY – and vote. A Hollywood panel will judge 15 finalists and the winning ad will air on national TV. I’ve been laughing out loud at times, and, I confess, have even teared up.
So far,this hilarious spot is my favorite:
Polls open through Sunday.
