Conservative group American Commitment wins MoveOn contest in a landslide

As Twitchy reported yesterday, progressive groups MoveOn and MayDay hosted a super-awesome 30-second video contest “to wake up America to the crisis of big money in our politics.” It must have been a surprise to the organizers when a video by conservative group American Commitment dominated the voting by a huge margin.

MoveOn and MayDay changed the rules on the fly, pushing back the voting deadline by a day, just enough time for MoveOn to send out an email blast to its members.

LOL. MoveOn blast email for their emergency 24-hour extension to beat http://t.co/KpXqzGrvNH: "One important note" pic.twitter.com/74dh1ShoqE

As American Commitment president Phil Kerpen noted, that only helped push his group and its video on Tom Steyer — “America’s Biggest Hypocrite” — even further ahead.

MoveOn and MayDay finally had to call it a day, leaving American Commitment the overwhelming winner.

Can't wait for "pro-democracy" celebrity liberals to explain why the people's overwhelming favorite is not the winner.

The extra day of voting and blasting the vaunted MoveOn email list only got http://t.co/KpXqzGrvNH MORE votes. pic.twitter.com/WfdkrHtlv8

Delay may have had more to do with burying our landslide win on a Friday night than thinking MoveOn blast email would do anything.

With @kerpen getting 7590 votes to 2899 for all others combined in @MAYDAYUS & @MoveOn's contest, we'll see their commitment to democracy.
