Following the Democrats recent release of a radio commercial that explains to their constituency that "there is an important election coming up and it...is...called...the...midterm," they're reinforcing their campaign strategy with a new logo that tells their thoughtful voters "this...is...what...a...D...looks...like."
Which seems like a small thing, but apparently it's been a pretty big problem for Democrats in the past. It seems that when they "get out the vote" on Election Day and drive voters to the polls, a fair number of the people dragged into the vans don't really know (or care about) the difference between a "D" and an "R." Or the difference between freedom and oppression. Or that some people go to the bathroom indoors.
Some analysts even believe that the somewhat foggy mental state of such "recruited" voters tipped the 2000 Presidential election to George Bush over Al Gore thanks to Florida's infamous "butterfly ballot." People driven to the polls by Democrats were specifically told to vote for "the second name" on the ballot (since "D" and "R" are so confusing). But because of the ballot's baffling layout (designed by Democrats), many votes were mistakenly cast for Pat Buchanan by clueless people who just wanted to get in, get out, and get their promised bowl of soup.
But not this year! The Democrats may not have saved the economy, balanced (or even submitted) the budget, lowered the debt, or made us safer...but they have accomplished one thing: they've shown us that "D" stands for Democrat!
And they got that "D" the old-fashioned way; they earned it.
