View Full Version : Caption This: DNC 2012 Logo Revealed at Convention Kick-off Rally in Charlotte

Today, the DNC had their kick-off rally here in Charlotte for the official one-year countdown til next year’s convention, which will be held here in the Queen City:

As many as 2,000 people from around the region filled the concourse at Charlotte’s Time-Warner Cable Arena this morning for the official kick-off rally for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

National Democratic Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz unveiled the convention logo — a red, white and blue circle patterned after President Obama’s 2008 campaign logo.

And Wasserman Schultz made clear that the point of the convention is Obama’s re-election.

“I don’t have to tell you how important North Carolina is going to be to the next presidential election,” she announced. “Together we’ll keep North Carolina blue.”

In 2008 Obama carried the state by 14,000 votes. Also today, the Republican National Committee launched a radio ad in North Carolina and seven other states Obama carried, blasting his record on jobs, health care and spending.

Former Mayor Harvey Gantt, like Wasserman Schultz, touted the fact that this would be “the first convention in history to be funded by the people.”



Looks like a cradle to me. How’s this for a GAG-ME motto: Cradle to grave, we’re your federal family
Yeah Jane, I like that motto. And the sooner ol’ people like I (me?) get out of the way, the better the family will like it......We Are the World?.... You mean the National Anthem?
Jane Galt: That is a great motto! When I looked at the logo, what came to my mind was: from nothing, to nothing.
When I first saw it, the thought that immediately went through my po’ ol’ mind was, “I wonder if the people who created Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Newman have given their OK for this?”.......Visualize the white interior as the head, not the blue, and if you can, visualize that goofy tooth-gap grin of Newman’s!.......How utterly fitting this is.
Kind of has a creepy “we are the world” feeling to it, doesn’t it?

It’s creepy, but I didn’t get the WATW vibe. I think it’s more like the common scene in zombie horror movies where the Living Dead walk mindlessly toward you en masse. For example, check the cover art on this horror classic. Notice the resemblance between the zombies on the DVD box and the Obamabots in the logo?

The more I think about it, it’s really appropriate, since the Obamabots are (1) mindless drones, (2) looking to destroy any living economy, and (3) in Chicago at least, the dead who will be voting for him.

Obummer lucked up the last time around. Debbie is full of crap if she thinks that NC or any southern state will go in the Democratic column in 012.

Not a pretty picture.

Looks like a bunch of people in a wine glass. Maybe they're going to have to tie one on in order to support Obama.

Actually, more like in the toilet bowl. Maybe the graphic needs a toilet tank and a flush valve in the picture to make it really sing.

On edit: I think that this may work:

Dems’ dire seat-uation

Top aides on President Obama’s re-election team are terrified that there will be scores of empty seats when he makes his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, party insiders said.

Obama, once the biggest draw in politics, won’t likely attract crowds as large as those at the 2008 convention because voters have gone sour on the poor economy, insiders said.

“It’s always a concern about making sure there aren’t empty seats, but this is different,” said one Democratic official familiar with the convention plans.

“This is a different time than four years ago. It’s a different convention. And the president is viewed differently.”

The president will accept the party’s nomination on Sept. 6 in a Charlotte, NC, football stadium. that holds 80,000.

“They’re worried they can’t fill the stadium,” the official said.

As a result, Democrats have taken steps to make the convention open to more people, not just party loyalists and donors.

In June, the party announced a contest in which participants have a chance to go to the convention for just $5.

Maybe they could build those styrofoam columns a tad bigger to block the view of the empty stadium?

Looks like it could be the logo for the next season of The Walking Dead or Left For Dead 3.

It makes the old GOP elephant logo look positively scintillating.
