Moveon.org, please get a grip

It was obvious the Bush Hitler videos were total paranoid bad taste (despite the still chilling parallel of attacks on civil liberties by appeal to Father/Home-Land)
and really an opportunity for Conservative Forces. Now, MoveOn.org’s repsonse is a deep disappointment to someone like me, who had been charmed by their methods so far.

Take a look at Bush in 30 Seconds and the URLs for the “15” finalists. They’re of the form http://www.bushin30seconds.org/view/X_small.shtml, with X = 1 to 17, with 2 and 16 absent.

It looks like the two Hitler-Bush videos were selected as finalists, and now MoveOn is weakly excusing itself due to problems in its “Screening Process”. Congrats MoveOn.org, you may have just blown the value of this entire campaign.
