Goddamnitall, that really fucking hurts when truths like those come out of the mouths of babes.

I hope it hurts like fucking hell to Repubs, too, but I have my doubts.

Find the ad you like. Use the send to a friend function to to get a copy, so if you get lost or have a problem you won't lose track of it in the random function of the Moveon site. Then once you've gone to the page through the email from the send to a friend function view source.

In the source code find and select and copy everything between the following tags:


blah blah blah blah blah blah etc...


and paste it into an entry on your site. There is a lot of code which will be between the tags. Don't change any of it.


I suspect that your average dittohead would consider it completely inappropriate to use the mouths of babes to spout political propaganda. Mind you I've seen similar age faces in anti-abortion vids so who's to know.

It is a particularly good ad though. I'm going to move it down into an extended category tonight and put up a new one. There's another one I liked a lot which I'll put up on the front page to replace it. Maybe I can keep putting up some good ones until they have finished the contest.

Also remember that you are getting these files from Moveon's servers. So once the hit the kill switch on these videos, which I assume they will after they have finished the whole project, then this code will fail and you'll have some nasty error messages on your page.

You'll need to be prepared to go back and remove the code and replace it with a link to the winning entry, etc.

Also their may be issues with copyright. I suspect given the nature of the contest and the need for marketing of these ideas this shouldn't be a problem but someone involved might get very upset to find the work on your site. I am prepared for that but do not go into it without your eyes fully open.

I hope this helps.
