This was pretty funny the other night…

Found this on Mediaite.com after watching it on Bill Maher last week. If you follow the link at the bottom, there is a video on the website I grabbed this from.

Whenever a major political party tries to “rebrand” itself, aesthetically, it inevitably ends in disaster. Last time it was GOP.com, but to prove the graphic failure is bipartisan, the Democrats have come up with a new logo, and a new slogan (“change that matters”). An exasperated Bill Maher tried to help out the party by offering some new slogans, like “fighting for you (to a point)” and “we got Lisa Ling’s sister out of Korea.”

The logo (which, it should be noted, The Atlantichas already called out for plagiarism from a Midwestern pizza place), is a small “D” in a blue circle. The hours spent thinking up this complex design must be incalculable. Maher presents it without comment, though his face says it all, and to add insult to injury, Jon Hamm of all people deadpans from off-camera, “Radiates power, doesn’t it?”

Maher himself goes a bit harder on the Democrats, at some point even lobbing the grave insult of comparing them to the Chicago Cubs. The list of slogans Maher has chosen for them are all hilarious in their own way, though the last one, perhaps, is the most apt for this November: “Don’t get up; we’ll let ourselves out.”
