Video: Newt wants to give you a year's free gas

Drill here, drill now, pay … nothing? That could be true for one lucky participant in a new YouTube contest at American Solutions. Newt Gingrich takes a moment away from goldbricking on YouTube (with the latest JibJab) to explain the concept:

This is your chance to demonstrate to Congress and the American people why a “Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less” approach is best for your wallet and your country.

Try to think outside-the-box. Here are a few examples:

  • Showcase your sense of humor or your musical talents.
  • Think about pop culture and current events.
  • Think about your favorite movie and how it would have changed with $4/gallon gasoline.

We do ask that you try to follow a few guidelines:

  • Keep your videos short and to-the-point. Videos should not exceed 2 minutes.
  • Keep your focus on the issue, not personal attacks.

I’m certain that many people can come up with a creative idea pr two for a short video on how gas prices impact consumers. The contest deadline is September 15th, and the winner will be announced at the first anniversary celebration of American Solutions.
