The GOP's new "wide-stance" logo

Uh… check this thing out…
(From Daily Kos)

And yes, this is real, not an extremely clever photoshop job, and truly encapsulates what the Republican Party is all about.

Wide stance? Check.

In Minneapolis? Check.

Prison stripe-wearing? Check.

Starry eyed? Check.

As for the elephant humping the "2008"...

Are they going for a "Still screwing the country in 2008" theme, or is it a reference to hypocritical adulterers like David Vitter and just about the entire Republican presidential field?

All of the above? Check!

Apparently they ran out of space for a collapsing bridge.

From Lizzy: I found the following on All Spin

So, what do you think folks...anyone want to come to Minneapolis next September to raise hell with me? I have a big house. It will be fun!

New Republican Motto:

I'm Not Gay, I Just Like To Have Sex With Men

I still wonder who designed this logo and WTF were they thinking?

Lizzy said...

I think the last link you posted was my favorite.

No shit, what were they thinking??

PoliShifter said...

A normal elephant would have done fine, on all fours eating grasss or whatever.

But to have the elephant rear up with a wide stance?

It's something out of a circus gone bad movie.

How often to elephants rear up on their haunches?

And even when I've seen elephants rear up like that at the circus, their stances are not that wide.

The flip side is, maybe there is a mole working at the RNC graphics dept.

Lizzy said...

I heard somewhere that elephants only rear up when they're having sex! You would think that they would have checked on something like that beforehand.

A mole working inside the RNC? That would make me very happy. It would be about time that we turned the tables on those douchebags.

Candace said...

These are all wonderful. Whoever did the original design got some 'splainin to do.

Anonymous said...

LOL. And the elephant is blue instead of red. Works for me.

Keira said...

Here is my theory: they made the elephant rearing up and blue to look like the Democrats blue bucking donkey to confuse some of the "slower" voting public over to their side.

Lizzy said...

I think Keira may be on to something.

That would 'splain a lot.

LET'S TALK said...

The blue instead of red works for me as well.

Snave said...

Heh... if the audio trickery on the AM radio dial isn't working as well these days, they can always resort to visual trickery. Good one, Keira!

I love all the new logos.

I think their motto ought to be "I'm not 'gay', I'm 'bi'... but I would never admit it." That way, by being bi they can say they aren't gay, and it makes it o.k. to legislate against the gay population. But wait... that didn't make any sense... hmmm.

Lizzy said...

Tom & LT, the blue doesn't work for me. That's our color, dammit!

Snave, They live in an upside-down, wrong-side up hypocritical world. Nothing makes sense. hummmm, indeed.

pissed off patricia said...

I swear a dem. sneaked into the committee that designed this thing (the real one). A dem with a great sense of humor

Chuck said...

They certainly are transparent enough these days, yet there's still quite a contingent of idiots out there that can't see it. Or refuse to.

Divided is what we are. And maybe for good this time.

Lizzy said...

PoP, Looks that way to me!

Chuck, At this point, I'd be happy to split the country in two. They can have the South...we'll take the North.
