Joan Walsh writes a smart piece about the ridiculous controversy surrounding a couple of entries in MoveOn's Bush in 30 Seconds contest:
Another day, another big Republican lie. . . as those who've followed the story know, MoveOn didn't sponsor or create, let alone televise, ads comparing Bush to Hitler. MoveOn's issue-advertising arm, the MoveOn Voter Fund, ran an innovative contest, "Bush in 30 Seconds," challenging its members to make their own political ads illustrating the shortcomings of the Bush administration in a humorous, creative way.

Check out the finalists if you have time & bandwidth. (If you don't have the patience or high-speed connection, stills are posted and Charles Taylor reviews some of them at Salon.) The winner will be announced on 12 January.
