I’m sure you’ll also notice our new look. Some may think: it’s just a logo—it’s just a brand. Well I don’t believe the Democratic Party is a logo or a brand—we are much more than that. We are Democrats. We create change that matters. Ours is a party of ideas and ideals, of policies and people, history and purpose.
So call it what you will—this new identity for our party captures the spirit that unites us all. Democrats—all of us—are working for the change that matters.

Look at the responses to this post, they're obviously not all Dems, but more people "like" the comments that criticize than the post itself, and almost none of the comments are supportive.
This is going to go down as one of the biggest strategic blunders in American politics......ever.Add a comment
I'm proud to say I have NEVER been a fan of Karl Rove. I'm sure hes a nice guy, but I think that he thinks politics is all a game...
That's why his ego was competing with his forehead when he trashed Christine O'Donnell for beating Mike Castle for the GOP's senate nomination in Delaware.
If you like Rove go ahead and look up the man's life story. Unless I missed the part where he spent some time mowing lawns as a kid I'm pretty sure Barack Obama has more experience working in the private sector than Rove does if we can prove he's masturbated more.
Rove's entire life has literally been politics. Either he never knew the world outside it or he has completely forgotten. I don't doubt the core of his world view is a conservative one, but for him renewing GOP control of congress means Republicans get to have it all their way in "The Game" again.
For him RINO's can be used to help the ball move forward, which, like communism, is a fine theory in paper and not quite realized in practice.
This isn't about beating Democrats, this is about literally taking the country back from people who are literally trying to transform it into something different. If that means losing a race or two because of principal THIS TIME. I'm willing to take that hit for the longer term vision of working to restore the principals of liberty, self-sufficiency, and "In God We Trust."
We can never make that case if voters don't understand the pain of the leftist alternative, and they sure as hell will NEVER understand that if our messengers are squishes who keep one foot in that pool.
"It does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day while they may be conservative in their public statements do not event the characteristics of rectitude, truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters are looking for."
He thinks conservatives don't do themselves any good voting for an O'Donnell over a total RINO like Mike Castle. Where does that argument end? Once Castle gets elected it does us no good to unseat him as an incumbent, so we have to keep him in office now don't we?
The argument now becomes how conservatives don't want to lose the majority, so now we have to perpetually support ideological craters like Mike Castle, whose character hinges on which party strokes his ego the hardest. That's a hole we can never dig ourselves out of. Then the agenda will never move forward because of hacks like Rove convinced us that we need RINO's like him to win.
He thinks this because its conventional wisdom for someone who has spent his life sitting in the side-car of the motorcycle of power for so long he has absolutely no clue what real people, driving in their cars with their windows up and their talk radio blasting, are thinking anymore.
Remember, this guy has been given the legendary status of being George W. Bush's brain. Its no wonder, to me, how that presidency ended up being such an abject failure. Bush's presidency did conservatives little good.
He might disagree, but Barack Obama, and William Ayers, and Karl Marx wouldn't.Add a comment
People ask why would the Democrats want to change their logo when it has been agreed for some time now that it worked way better than what the GOP had going for it. Well I think I figured it out.
Working in marketing as a graphic artist I understand that messaging is extremely important. The vehicle for brand recognition and clarity comes first through an organization's logo...so something really did need to be done, because the Dems were not getting their message across and...
does in fact get the job done much better than....
Mystery solved!Add a comment
The Republican National Committee scoffed at the changes. "There is no surer sign of the Democrats lack of ideas and lack of a coherent message than for the DNC to promise an announcement that would change the election and then unveil a new logo," said spokesman Doug Heye. "Voters care about growing jobs and fixing the economy. The DNC's assumption that anyone outside Washington - or inside Washington, for that matter - cares about a silly logo only demonstrates their political tone deafness. "

Honestly I thought this was a quote from the Onion, seriously......but it's not...
Whose idea was this? Obviously Chairman Tim Kaine is an android, because there is no way an actual human being wouldn't die of embarrassment midway through this announcement.
This had to be rushed, a "D" in a circle? How many drafts did they blow through to get to that masterpiece?....They didn't know how easy that would be to re-rebrand?
And my personal favorite...

If you're an O'Donnell supporter, and you're not cool with Mike Castle's refusal to support O'Donnell as the nominee here's a little cathartic exercise for you
Hold your tongue and say "Mike Castle"

Congrats to Christine O'Donnell, I know the pundits have written her off, but I haven't forgotten that once upon a time...THIS YEAR...a sacrificial lamb from Massachusetts we call SENATOR Scott Brown, someone even I ignored until it was too late, was down 30 points in the polls.
Even if she loses badly would the GOP have really been better off with a Lincoln Chafee by a different name? I'm not asking for uber-conservative, I'm not even asking for very conservative, but somewhat-conservative would be nice. Her opponent Mike Castle gets a failing grade from Club For Growth, NRA, and the American Conservative Union!
I know things don't look good for her compared to how Mike Castle would've fared, but the last couple of years have been FILLED WITH THE IMPROBABLE...Barack Obama should be Hillary Clinton's vice president right now, so as far as I'm concerned the GOP establishment can take their O'Donnell doom and gloom and shove it you know where.Add a comment
I love Ann...
...her book Slander was what pushed me over the edge to really start getting my head in the game and speaking out. She has been the major influence on my own work.
"Pompous Douchebag Trap" is the best, but to me its also like a liberal laugh track...or Democrat approval bomb....or Muslim dunce cap....
More than anything its really becoming a quintessential All-American intelligence test.Add a comment
Remember when Dick Cheney dropped the f-bomb in a private conversation with Pat Leahy and that cuuuuuuute little girl from Kids for Kerry who looked like little orphan Annie and told us
I don't know how making a kid a spokesperson for grown-up matters is supposed to be persuasive, but I guess with "progressives," or liberals, or whatever nice-sounding adjective they're trying to ruin the meaning of, it makes sense to include children in the political process since the only maturing they actually go through is strictly physical anyway.
Now the Center for American Progress's college wing "Campus Progress" is trying to capitalize on Justin Bieber to encourage Democrats to vote. Who is Justin Bieber? He's a 16 year old who lipsynchs on stage to sound engineered music and it makes 12 year old girls want to do things to him we adults only read about in "Diary of a 21st Century Public School Student."
Internet-savvy types know that teen heartthrob Justin Bieber pretty much rules the Web. Just last week, rumors spread that Bieber’s fan base was so active on Twitter that the microblogging website has servers dedicated just to him. Twitter didn’t confirm that, but it didn’t deny it, either.
The takeaway? If you're trying to get a message to go viral, your success rate will surely be higher if you can somehow tie in the Biebs.
So that’s just what Campus Progress, the college spinoff of the Center for American Progress, decided to do to get people to vote in the midterms.
"We're trying to leverage Bieber fever," Campus Progress's Sara Haile-Mariam told POLITICO. "Most of his fans are 12 years old — we acknowledge that." Still, they hope that Bieber fans will “tell their parents.... The hope is to create something that goes viral and gets young people to be aware of the election."

Oh yeah, kids are telling their parents how to vote...
Mom, dad put down that newspaper and listin...k? Serisly you guys, like, this story is, like, fuh reals....k? You have to VOTE, fer Justen, cuz he said...k?.....cuz Becky told Molly, who told Tammy's brother's friend Marc who made out with Stacia and then told me all about et that you have to vote Dumicrap, or whatever, so Publikens can't ban text messaging and lip gloss....eww....
Companies market to children counting on the nag factor being applied to their parents on things such as toys and happy meals, but now these Proglodytes (shout out to iOwnTheWorld for that one) think this time its going to work on taxes and national security?
They don't even have a grip on times tables, or economics, or history, or civics, or anything that concerns the adult world...because they're not friggin' adults!
Its no wonder liberal politicians make arguments as if they're talking to children, their acolytes think elections are like the MTV Video Music Awards.Add a comment
