First of all, Hillsman did a great job on the spot:

A 30-second spot for the "Clean Money" Proposition 89 campaign is apparently catching fire in the so-called political echo chamber: the network of alternative, underground, and electronic messaging that drives younger voters to the polls.

And it's gone even more viral since its debut. It's being featured on one of the most popular political Web sites in the country: Crooks & Liars.

"I don't know if we'll pull this off,'' said Bill Hillsman, who created the ad and is the media consultant for Connecticut senatorial candidate Ned Lamont's insurgent campaign against Sen. Joe Lieberman, ``but if the spot goes out enough, people will say this is how I feel, and if for no other reason but this, I'll go out and vote.''
