The Delaware Dems Have a New Logo

Filed in Delaware by on February 9, 2012

As an aside, I post as Delaware Dem, which is a name I created in 2003 as the name I posted under when Daily Kos was launched. But just because my name is Delaware Dem here does not mean I have any connection to the Delaware Democratic Party.

I don’t. In no way do I speak for them, and given the shouting matches I have had with John Daniello, he would agree. But I digress…

The Delaware Dems have a new logo.

It is better than just going with the national D within a circle. It localizes the Democratic label. And while I know that chickens, or Hens, as it were, are local to Delaware, and the mascot of the University of Delaware, is it wise for a political party to have a chicken as his logo? Might send the wrong message.

Otherwise, the logo is great stylistically.

    a rooster (clearly a male bird) with it’s butt spanked republican red. i like it. maybe it’ll give COD the platform she needs to launch a “pay my bills for another year, sussex county voters” campaign.

  2. puck says:

    It does suit Delaware Democrats: Two-thirds blue, one-third red.

  3. I do like it. The first state deserves a star. And we have to educate people about our blue hen mascot. The fighten’s come from three centuries of bloody, determined, Delaware bragging rights via blue cock fighting.

    LOL – just saw Puck’s apt assessment. Delaware Way.

  4. No open thread? Just saw this Cohen post on how poorly the state GOP statewide candidates are matching up with DEMs campaign cash-wise:

    I was also going to note that Carper pushed for the ass end of the hen to be red.

    RE it being a chicken. South Carolina gets around this by emphasize the wild ass bloodthirstiness of fighting birds.

    Ours looks like a barnyard layabout.

    It would be nice if they knew how to spell Democratic

  8. Delaware Dem says:

    Yes, I just got an email from Joe Aronson about it. The vendor who designed the logo is sending a revised logo that correctly spells “Democratic.” As I told Joe, I missed it the first several times I looked at it.

  9. Delaware Dem says:

    And by the way, that was the vendor’s error. I would imagine the staff at the Democratic Party knows how to spell Democratic.

    That’s what they get for using Charlie Copeland for stuff like this.
