One of the hottest trends in this year's election campaign has been the rise of the 527's -- independent political organizations not tied to a particular candidate or party. Raising millions of dollars through private donations and internet fundraising, groups like The Media Fund, Billionaires for Bush, and America Coming Together have brought a fresh voice to our two-party system through online campaigns, television advertising, and coordinated grassroots actions. MoveOn.org, originally formed to protest the Bill Clinton impeachment fiasco, has emerged as one of the largest and most influential of the progressive 527's. Recently, MoveOn sponsored a "Bush in 30 Seconds" commercial contest, soliticiting submissions from average Americans of all walks of life, to be judged by an all-star panel that included Jack Black, James Carville, Al Franken, Janeane Garofalo, Moby, Michael Moore, Russell Simmons, Michael Stipe, Gus Van Sant, Eddie Vedder, and many others. High Times is proud to present "Child's Play," the overall winner, along with our personal favorites from among the Top 150 entries.
