Behold the inspiring message and logo art—one of three truly powerful designs in Arial font—that the DNC (Democratic National Committee) would really like you to vote on before they print up car magnets or some shit.
As Loyal Readers™ may recall, the DNC is presently chaired by one Debbie Wasserman Schultz. A few years ago, the conservative Florida congresswoman was handpicked to head the DCCC’s “Red to Blue” program, a job that consisted entirely of targeting Republican-held districts across the country that were potentially within reach for Democrats. How did Ms. Wasserman fare on her assignment? She protected three right-wing Florida Republicans and publicly sabotaged the campaigns of the three Democrats running against them. The Democratic donor backlash was so fierce that finally, after a lot of hemming and hawing, the DCCC had to fire her from its “Red to Blue” program. So the party leadership (Steve Israel*) gave her a promotion: she now heads the DNC.
I sure hope it’s not to late for entries into this important contest, because I have some great ideas myself.
I could go on (and on and on…) but I fear I might asphyxiate myself laughing.
As a writer at Daily Kos(!) notes:
Democrats: Because, hey, at least we’re not Republicans.
Lesser evilism as party messaging and strategy.
*Back in 2005, Steve Israel, presently Chair of the DCCC, along with his BFF Illinois Republican congresscritter Tim Johnson, co-founded the Center Aisle Caucus (or “caca,” as I call it). Caca claims roughly sixty members, although the number is impossible to verify because membership is sooper seekrit. Caca members fancy themselves “defiant centrists” (or “conservatives,” as I call them). This would be terrible enough considering how far to the right the so-called “center” has drifted. But it’s really much worse than that: caca members observe an unwritten bylaw to never engage in political campaigns against other caca members. If sixty members is an accurate count, that takes roughly thirty congressional races right off the table for the Dems, courtesy of… the chair of the DCCC.
