DSCC needs your help with a new slogan

posted at 8:39 am on March 8, 2011 by

Sen. Patty Murray, Chair of the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee (DSCC), wants help with formulating a “pithy catchphrase to rally the troops” according to POLITICO.

No seriously, they need help – and they’re outsourcing the effort.

POLITICO offers:

“Because Harry Reid really likes his nice Majority Leader office”

“Please, please, please vote for us in 2012!”

“Why not?”

“Will the last Senate Democrat in office please turn out the lights?”

A POLITICO reader suggests, “Hey, at least we didn’t flee”.  A variation I like is “At least we’re not fleebaggers”.

Moe Lane pops in with “Drink the Kool-aid”. Lane also reminds us of the DSCC’s recent performance:

[T]he DSCC spent 97.8 million and went into debt for 8.9 million in order to lose six Senate seats and gain zero – [which] demonstrates handily that the DSCC cannot be trusted to come in out of the rain; wipe its own nose; or, indeed, wear its underpants underneath its outer clothing.

The Lonely Conservative suggests “Bend Over!”  Don Surber weighs in with:

“Democrats: Not Republicans since 1854.”

“Democrats: Because Republicans are icky.”

“Democrats: More Hope, Less Change.”

“The D Stands For Debtor.”

“Democrats: The Starter Party.”

Me? I’m kind of partial to “Our symbol isn’t a jackass for nothing”.

And you?

“Democrats: The holes where your hard-earned tax dollars go.”

“Its for the children” always gets me..

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”

“A living wage is a right”
“Health Care is a right”
“Liberté, égalité, fraternité,” what’s wrong with that ?
“A car in every garage, a chicken in every pot”
“Sex, drugs, rock-n-roll”

“Democrats: because voting for Republicans is uncool.”

“Thank goodness state legislatures don’t pick us anymore!”

“We think you’re so stupid that you NEED the government!”

“Live for today, stick your grandkids with the bill!”

How’s about using part of bifidis’s classic utterances:

Vote Democrat: Because Progressivism always triumphs.

Or maybe:

Vote Democrat: Because if you did it yourself, it would be stealing.

“Vote for us, or we’ll run away. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!”

True story: It was the ’90s. Morale was low in the squadron. The brass suggested a motto contest. I overheard one major suggest to another: “We suck.”

Wasn’t a winner for our outfit, but it might be for the Dems!

Vote Democrat: Because only the people who have screwed things up royally know how to clean up the mess.
