18 Jan 2004 MoveOn.Org: Confused Again?
Posted at 06:14h in Blog
Went to the MoveOn.org website this evening and viewed some of the winners of their vaunted ad contest.
To my great surprise, the winning ad, called “Child’s Play,” has a conservative theme. It has one message: opposition to deficit spending. Every conservative group I can think of could have run it.
Who would’ve thunk?
Congrats to them, by the way, for having such a successful contest. They not only got people to volunteer to create ads for them, but got loads of free media coverage from the mainstream press for doing something that’s not really all that remarkable: creating and reviewing political ads.
Too bad, though, that MoveOn.org’s true agenda isn’t fiscal conservatism. Maybe they thought their real agenda wouldn’t sell.
