The Blue America PAC contest is going along so well that I decided to double the number of DVDs-- so we'll have 10 winners-- and extend it until Friday at midnight. We'll pick the winners Saturday morning.

And tonight John just started a whole other kind of contest over at Crooks and Liars. John is looking for videomakers, animators and flash designers who want to be part of the Blue team and help take Congress back from the rubber stampers. Rickie Lee Jones and Tom Maxwell and Ken Mosher, formerly of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, put together a campaign theme song, "Have you Had Enough." Give it a listen here. And you can read all about how the song came about here. Mike McIntee has been doing yeoman's work in turning out dozens of customized videos for our campaign. One of the last ones he did was for Angie Paccione's challenge to right-wing extremist Marilyn Musgrave. take a look:

What we're looking for today is a similar approach but one that also emphasizes the latest outrage in the Republican Culture of Corruption that ties these rubber stamp incumbents into the Republican leadership's cover-up of the Foley Predatorgate scandal.

The winner will get his or her video used, at the very least, on Crooks and Liars, Firedoglake and here at Down With Tyranny, but probably on many other outlets as well. The contest winner will also get a large box of CDs, DVDs and books worth hundreds of dollars-- plus the satisfaction of being part of a team doing something to save the country from two more years of irresponsible, unaccountible and corrupt government. Just pick any Blue America candidate for the House and do a one-minute clip. Submit entrees to:
