Rate Finalists in the DSCC Bumper Sticker Competition
Cross-posted at my new location, Ohio Daily Blog:
Here are the four contenders, submitted by rank and file Democrats in the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee-sponsored competition to come up with a nationwide DSCC slogan for 2008. What do you think?
Vote for your favorite here. Then come back and tell me what you think in the comments.
Here are some initial thoughts:
1) Why so much red? The red/blue symbolism has prevaded popular culture pretty strongly. All else being equal, shouldn't the Democrats use blue as part of the Democratic brand?Tell me what you think.
2) All the slogans are grounded in reacting to the mess created by Republican rule. Given the dismal approval ratings for Bush that makes a certain amount of sense, but wouldn't it be better to convey a positive message as well?
3) Is it possible to distill the Democratic jobs-health care domestic agenda to a slogan?
4) No graphics! Where's the donkey?
5) Why just one slogan?
