I was checking out a few of my other favorite sites before logging onto Dkos this morning - because, let's face it, once I log onto Dkos, I tend to stay for hours - and I ran across a fascinating article in Mother Jones about the newest project from unPAC.  Now, I had never heard of unPAC so I googled them.  They had me at "Money out.  People in." which is their motto.  If you are unfamiliar with them, check them out at  

Anyway, they have produced a silent political ad to be run in Ohio which is aimed at the Supreme Court decision.  You know the one. The one that left a stain on the reputation of the Supreme Court that has caused infinitely more damage to our country than the stain left on the little blue dress.  The one that allowed the formation of Super Pacs which have turned this election into the first, but certainly not the last if nothing changes, 2 billion dollar election in our history.  Two billion dollars.

That mind boggling statistic is what has prompted unPAC to create this commercial as noted in Mother Jones:

The ad, a protest against the $2 billion presidential campaign, is meant to be a "message to politicians, special interest groups and the media: we won't stand by idly while our democracy is bought."  
It is a powerful ad that, in my opinion, also sends a powerful message to the Supreme Court.

...let's get back to the business of re-electing Barack Obama for four more years!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
