Democrats “Major Announcement” Turns Out To Be Cheesy New Logo

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine thinks all his party's problems will be solved with this new web site. Yea, that's the problem you guys have this year, bad web design.

Yesterday afternoon, the political wires were abuzz with news from the Democratic National Committee:

Washington (CNN) — Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine plans to make what’s being billed as a major announcement for the party Wednesday.

Any link one clicked on the party’s website early Wednesday touted the announcement, without offering details.

However, a Democratic source with knowledge of the speech said it will be about the future of the party.

The source told CNN that Kaine will announce something that will excite Democrats across the country

What could it be, people wondered. A new grand strategy for the midterms ? Announcements that the President would campaign for Democrats Harry Truman-style from the back of a train ?

Well, no not so much:

Eager to bridge a daunting enthusiasm gap, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tim Kaine recited a list of President Barack Obama’s accomplishments Wednesday to an auditorium packed with George Washington University College Democrats.

It came as he unveiled a new website, a new logo and a new slogan for his party: “Change That Matters.”

You can see the redesigned website above, here’s the logo:

A “D” inside a circle ? That’s your answer to what looks like it could be the biggest political setback for the Democratic Party in 16 years ? Yea, you go with that dude.

    Both Gallup and Rasmussen have Obama on a popularity surge.
     
    With the Republicans collapsing into an infantile WWE brawl, it’s good timing to push Obama, the adult in American politics.

    an you say, ” New Coke?”

    Hey Ponce, are you off your meds again?

  5. ponce says:

    Pete,
     
    It’s not crazy to enjoy watching the just-a-flesh-wound wingnuts trying to pretend things are going great on the Republican side of the election while their chances of winning vanish…for the third election in a row.
     
    I think the Dems might pick up a few Senate seats this time around.

  6. Pete says:

    BTW Ponce, if Obama is the adult and is so competent, why is it that the democrat representatives who voted against Obamacare all won primaries? Do they know what an empty suit he is and do their supporters know that Obamacare is an albatross? Do they clamor to have Obama join them on the stump? I’m afraid your supply of Lithium has run out. Or maybe you fell down the rabbit hole. Please try to regain some sense.

    Pete,
     
    Obama isn’t up for re-election this time around.
     
    And yet all the wingnut political “strategists” like yourself continue to waste time with your impotent attacks on him.
     
    Why is that?

  9. Pete says:

    There must be a good reason dems up for re-election don’t want him around to support them. Maybe you could call up his campaign and offer to stump for him – in front of crowds in the tens.

  10. ponce says:

    “There must be a good reason dems up for re-election don’t want him around to support them.”
     
    You’re mistaken, Pete.
     
    I recently attended a fundraiser for my Senator where Obama spoke to thousands of cheering supporters and we raised hundreds of thousands of dollars.
     
    If you want accurate news I suggest you avoid  wingnut “news” sources.
     
    Not that they’ll be around much longer now that their Tea Party base has turned on them…

  11. Pete says:

    Was this alleged rally in downtown SF? Or in Berkeley? Maybe Havana? The thousands of cheering supporters were likely union members bussed in, combined with brain dead students. Your side has exhausted its relevance, if there ever were any, and the Dems are headed for an historical thumping this fall, and if the Tea Party doesn’t get complacent, Obama will be back as a”lecturer,” not a professor in Hyde Park, after 2012. Please go back in your rabbit hole.

  12. ponce says:

    Pete,
     
    I hope the fringe Right underestimates Obama…again.

  13. JKB says:

    Hey at least their being subliminally honest.   Their new slogan is written in red ink.

  14. rodney dill says:

    A big ‘O’ around a ‘D’, ODUMBO, appropriate.

  15. DJT says:

    Pete and the TPers have been promised that the “democrat” party will receive a “historical thumping”. When this fails to happen,  watch out! They’re gonna get out their snake flags and their mis-spelled signs and they’re gonna scream like angry unpleasant babies who’ve just been told, “no, you can’t.”

  16. DJT says:

    The slogan for the Republicans should begin with black ink and quickly switch to red ink.

  17. Davebo says:

    ” Your side has exhausted its relevance, if there ever were any, and the Dems are headed for an historical thumping this fall, and if the Tea Party doesn’t get complacent, Obama will be back as a”lecturer,” not a professor in Hyde Park, after 2012.”

    What?  No “in fact we’ll be greeted as liberators” comment Pete?
