While we scratch our heads figuring out how to increase civic engagement here in the city of LA, the restless lefties at are thinking nationally. Monday they launched a Flash animation contest To Stop the Republican Social Security Scam. There are 16 days left for you to submit your wickedly funny, wierd, politically persuasive Flash animation. Al Franken and Arianna Huffington (of course) are among the judges, plus Richard (Slacker) Linklater, Aaron McGruder (The Boondocks cartoons), and John Cusack (LAist loves Grosse Pointe Blank). The winner, in addition to a few seconds of fame, will get an Apple G4 laptop. LA's genius deserves to represented in the final 10.
