srsly?

The day before yesterday, the DNC let slip the news that they would be making a major announcement...something that would excite Democrats across the country, fire up the base, and help them hold on to their majority come election time in November. Theories were tossed around - was it going to be amnesty?The always popular cash bribes tax rebate checks? Something as suicidal and ridiculous as mortgage forgiveness? I mean, it could be anything, right? I was on tenterhooks, waiting for the news.

I shouldn't have worried. The super duper exciting game changing announcement that would shake everyone up and make them proud to be Democrats and want to support the President is...

...a new logo.

A blue circle. With a differently-colored blue "D" in it. That's some transcendent, inspirational artwork you've got there, Dems. I'm sure it's a highly nuanced design, far beyond what we bitter clingers could ever hope to understand. You're sure to win the election now, you betcha.

(& no, it's not a joke or news from The Onion)

(Also? I should never try to be funny when Jim Treacher does it so much better.)

This is a joke right?

Please tell me it's a joke...

How nice of them to provide a target to aim at.

That's really thinking outside the (round) box.

You might not have noticed, but the Dems had appropriated the Obama flag O as a default replacement for the ass, er donkey, they had before.

Of course now that Mr. Popular is Mr. Falling-in-the-Polls, the Dems running for office are not happy to be associated with Barry for any reason.

Clever? More like desperate.

Marcia said...

Well, that is exciting! And that's it...they've done it...those magnificent b*st*rds! I'm switching over coz I just have to be a part of all that!

Hope you were able to pick up on my enthusiasm what with all the exclamation points. I'm that excited.

Wonder how much of our taxes were funneled to the DNC for that new logo?

And where's the Hammer and Sickle? "Axelrod, they forgot the Hammer and Sickle, get it fixed! Yes Comrade Obama, on the Blackberry right now, sir".

They themselves must realize that the Obamassiah's ONLY positive attribute was a cool logo.

Jay G said...

I dunno.

I find it positively creepy that they've incorporated the Ø's, well, "O" into the Democrat logo. Like Øbama is surrounding the Democratic party.

Too much "l'etat, c'est moi" vibe I guess...

Robb already fixed it for target practice:

I wonder if we can get any official printing of that. I mean when else can you get something that will have all the collectability of Confederate money once the whole thing burns to the waterline?

"Robb already fixed it for target practice:"

I was just thinking of making a target page / bullseye (donkeyeye?), but then I'd probably be dragged away and locked up.

Fail! Roll it to the right and add eyes!

Thanks, Breda!

I'm seeing two things here:

OD, as in Over Dose, but perhaps more direct: The D Train.

D-erailed.

D-efunct.

D-eficit.

D-ebt.

D-isconnected.

Oh, man, I could go on like this forever.

(Hush, it makes sense to me somehow.)

You know, I look at it and the first thing I see is the Bell System logo keeled over on its side. Seriously - go look up the logo Bell before they got broken up into the baby bells, and still use spottily today - they just mutated the Bell into a D.

So, uh, it's a logo of dying monopolies?

All that comes to mind is a phrase commonly uttered by a Mr. Homer Simpson:

"D'oh!"

I'd sooner vote for Homer than anything the Democratic party coughts up...come to think of it, he might be smarter than most of them...

reflectoscope said...

Desperation, indeed.

Dearest Wifey looked at it and said "a D in a hole".

Bubblehead Les. said...

Another thought: Wonder if on Election Day 2012, we'll stroll into the voting booth and they'll just be a little box with that Logo on it? And if you fail to push it....

Am I the only one who thinks "Laughing Man"?

Probably.

Geodkyt said...

Weer'd,

I signed up for Demo email alerts a while ago as a way of keeping tabs. They want to send me a bumper sticker of that logo now.
