And did you notice the new civil rights page? No mention of DOMA repeal, and a commitment to "sensible" repeal of DADT. I guess the Constitutional Scholar in Chief doesn't think that being ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge is "sensible". And finally they promise "full civil unions" (as if there are 'partial' ones?) with "full federal rights for LGBT citizens". Although this is clearly BS given that the latter is impossible without the repeal of DOMA. The Democratic Party is a party of liars and con artists. They have declared war on our community.
Now all they need to do is hand out complimentary conical hats with that printed on them.
for those unfamiliar with the practice.

"Change that matters" ... if all you want is superficial rebranding.

I hope this is a joke. Talk about making yourself a target. Idiots.

The logo does make sense - they are less blue (progressive) on the inside than they look on the outside. One glance at the new Civil Rights page on their web site proves that.
Instead of a lighter blue for the D, they should have gone with something more representative of their actions - yellow.

Oh so close. They almost got an "F" on the report card, but the Dems got a "D". Just scraping by. Though you need a "C" to move on.

Screw the Democrats. I'm voting Green.
The Democrats are no better than the Republicans!

I had to make a logo for my organization this year and making that stupid circle in Adobe Illustrator (which I had used for the first time) is the easiest thing you could ever do. LAZY.

Apparently, their gaffe squad didn't catch the misinterpretation of "O.D.: Overdose."
It also visually recalls the 2008 Obama media. Is that something they really want to associate with at this point?
How much do these people get paid anyway?

If you don't want them Democrats to make fools of themselves anymore than they already have, write them and tell them what's wrong with the new logo and why they need to replace it: http://my.democrats.org/page/s/contact_technical

Bland. Uninspiring. Mediocre. Sadly, I'd say it's perfect for the current Democrats.

A very corporate looking image for a bunch of corporation huggers.
