2012 campaign edition!UH OH, THE 2012 CAMPAIGN IS HEATING UP! On Tuesday, your editor made fun of Ron Paul’s new fleeing eagle logo and alleged that the campaign stole their red-white-and-blue swoosh from Mitt Romney’s campaign, who had, we found earlier, stolen his swoosh from the Aquafresh logo. But according to some 21-year-old with an Etsy named Skylar Hartman, he designed Paul’s logo months ago and presented it to the little old libertarian man in an open letter, and Ron Paul apparently replied, “Sure, I’ll take your free logo, whatever.” Ron Paul did not steal Mitt Romney’s logo; if anything, Romney took Paul’s logo from this Skylar kid. Scandal! What will the voters of New Hampshire think of THIS controversy? Will they now slightly prefer boring utter loser Ron Paul to boring utter loser Mitt Romney?!?!?!?!?!

subject: Re: Ron Paul Logo

Dear Jack Stuef,

I appreciate your criticism on both the Ron Paul and Mitt Romney logos however you are spreading false information by suggesting that Ron Paul’s logo was ripped and/or stolen from Mitt Romney’s Exploratory Committee Campaign logo. I’m the creator of the brand design for Ron Paul which I created a couple of months ago and submitted, publicly, on my website (www.brandingronpaul.com). If anyone stole anything it would have been Romney, however I believe he has better things to do and more character than to take another designers logo. I would ask that you please correct your article as it contains errors.

Sincerely,
Skylar Hartman
Hartman Collective

Our favorite part of this letter is how “take another designers logo” implies that Mitt Romney is a graphic designer. Ha! That sort of thing is way too exciting and is thus banned by the Mormon church. And even if he wanted to do some graphic design, Mitt broke the family Gateway when he strapped it onto the dog on the roof of the car and it crashed onto the road, so they don’t own a computer anymore.

Because Skylar Hartman of the Hartman Collective (yes, we got this e-mail from the big man at Hartman himself!) says he made this logo only two months ago, it’s conceivable that Romney’s people actually made theirs first. But we’re not going to look into this, because seriously, who gives a fuck? Even if we did care, THE SWOOSH WAS STILL STOLED FROM AQUAFRESH.

The Hartman Collective’s website is worth a look though, just to see into the brain of an ernest young Ron Paul fan:

Toothpaste, kid. It means toothpaste.

Surely the wingnuts who vote in Republican primaries will be glad to know the red, white, and blue all have a whole new meaning dictated to them by Ron Paul. They will really appreciate that. They always like it when people redefine America for them.

But anyway, GO TO HELL, MITT ROMNEY, YOU STOLED RON PAUL’S LOGOOOOOOOOOOO!

    The truth is that Ron Paul stole the red-white-and-blue from the French. If only he also could have stolen the wine, cheese, baguettes, health care system, 35 hour work week, and 30+ paid vacation days a year, we'd be in business.

    Checked out Skylar's website and that t-shirt he has for sale is wonderful! I'd really like to have a couple of those. Does he take Pay Pal? Is it possible to get it without the douchey design though? Just plain gray for me. Thanks in advance!

    • Terry

      I checked out the website and have to say that his blue bumper stickers look a bit too much like the one's Obama campaign used two years ago. Maybe Skylar "samples" like a rapper.

      Pay Paul, I believe.

  • bokononista

    Actually, for Ronnie Paul's logo, the "white" is not even there. So truth be told, Ron Paul is no longer pure. Only unadulterated hardiness and vigilance remains. Now that's a true Repugnantlican!

    The big capital "A" stands for the cohesive theme of "anal," right? Thereby unifying the disparate messages embodied by the colors with concepts such as "Anal Vigilance" and "Anal Justice" etc . . .

  • Doktor Zoom

    Maybe they're using "collective" ironically.

      I was just going to say that! (ER, type that.) Good thing I read all the comments first, so I won't be guilty of stealing your intellectual property.

      • Doktor Zoom

        's OK if you did. Pretty much what youse clever corvids do, anyway.

        Beautiful plumage.

        • RavenRant

          Thanks. I just had to look up corvid – a learning experience. It's great getting in touch with my roots.

          Also, nice knowing that stealing is in my genes. I wonder if they'll let me use that defense in court. If not, I can fall back on the classic "Let's look forward, not backward!" That always seems to work for war criminals and such.

      …or, they're just dumb asses.

      Because this campaign is of the people, by the people and for the people of America, I put a greater emphasis on the letter “A”

      Because "A" is for Asshole; that's good enough for me.

  • According to Webster, logo is a bastardization of the Greek logos first used in 1972. Well 1972 is clearly decades before the average Pautard was born, so logo/logos both may as well be ancient Greek to them. With all that in mind are we trying to link Ron Paul with yer workaday Webster definition of logos: the divine wisdom manifest in the creation?

    I mean I get that you can follow the good Dr. Ron and be nodding and upfisting while he is talking about stopping with the small warz everywhere all at the same time and being okay to hit the BC bud, but then suddenly he's sounding like the flip side of William Jennings Bryan's rant about crosses of gold, which is then followed by a melange of wacko ideas as he becomes totally consumed by the vapors.

    Logo, logos, Legos, l'go my Eggos…

    • Doktor Zoom

      Also, the plural of Lego is Lego. Ron Paul knows all about interlocking blockheads.

      • Oh noes, and I didn't do it in all caps!!11! The following is from their web site and clearly when their attorneys get done with me it will be Devil's Island, not Gitmo for weejee.

          2. an identifying symbol (as for use in advertising)

          • Right. I was surprised & went back to check, and the 1st def Marion Webster pulled up is actually for the computer language, not the banding. Silly me. I was looking for the word origin, not the def, and saw the logos bit and ran with it. Had to click the noun #2 clickie to get to the logotype root.

      • undeterredbyreality

        I believe "Pauline" is an allusion to the letters of St. Paul, the first (and greatest) misogynistic author of the "Christian Era," thus representing also a subtle dig at the pretentiousness of the Paultards (I have no reluctance to use the potentially-offensive-to-Palin-the-presumptive-mother-of-the-syndromitically-afflicted-child-whose-name-we-dare-not-speak-but-which-rhymes-with-prig), and is not a feminization of the family name which it is mocking.

          Thanks for straightening that out. Yes, he was quite the misogynist, wasn't he.

          Actually, in a uncharacteristic bout of sensitivity, I'm trying to eliminate the "tard" suffix from my vocabulary. Not out of any concern for the Tundra Grifter, who should be soundly mocked at every opportunity, but for the sake of mentally challenged people and their friends and families.

Having no jobs, they have no way to buy more so they are forced either to ask their mothers, once again, for money or to go on the dole.

      This should bring out the ire of the Paulidiots. Well done! I can't help but have the feeling that these people don't need the internets, the webtubes or anything else. These people are exactly like the losers when I was in college, sitting in the corner of the student union coffee shop and getting excited and doing their smug laugh at everyone else. Smirks on their acne complexioned faces, on their way back to the dorm to jerk off because no one, NO ONE would, for a minute, consider actually going out with them. Losers are losers, with or without the interwebs.

    Yeah, what is this "Collective" crap? Ayn would never go for that. Pinko!

    Will Riley be live blogging the Brits' Royal wedding with LimeyLizzie?

    • [redacted]hse

      Can Skylar go with them?

    • HistoriCat

      Fucking brilliant idea – A+.

      Ken – I know that the whole monarchy thing gives you indigestion but I think this live blog could be a winner.

    • Riley could wear his top hat and shout rude things at the aristocracy.

      I know just what you mean. If you try to keep Rick Santorum out of your mind, though, and only think of the definition, you'll find it's MUCH easier to brush.

    That blue is definitely not true-blue American flag blue. I think it's been adulterated with…

  • AngryGeometer

    "As previously noted, a special emphasis was added to the “A.” This is the main design element throughout the whole of the campaign which represents not only the political party which Ron Paul will run as, but first and foremost it represents America bound together with valor, purity and vigilance."

    The political party which Ron Paul will run as? What? He's running representing the Asshole party? Is the A for "A Republican"?

    "Many placed their faith and hope in a man who had offered much hope. Americans wanted something to believe in; something to hold onto in hopes they would be liberated from their worries and heartache only to be given a cold shoulder."

    "Liberated from their worries and heartache"? What a fucking tool. You want somebody to cuddle with you, buy a fucking dog. Ron Paul sure as shit is not going to liberate you from your worries and heartache, either. If by some miracle he gets elected, he's going to be too busy destroying 200+ years of social democracy to drop by your house and personally give you a footjob or whatever.

    Cripes. Somebody send this sad sack some Cranberry Stoli and the first three Sunny Day Real Estate albums already.

    • DustBowlBlues

      "Is the A for "A Republican"?

      Made me laugh out loud. Let's just hope this kid will look back at this moment and be as embarrassed for himself as the rest of us are for him.

      I like the fact that underneath the "Students Vote Ron Paul" poster it says "Not final photo"–because he looks like the mid-Alzheimer's patient he truly is.

  • gvvt

    Check out the Red "A" on Hartman's Ron Paul logos… Where is his Adultery Certificate? And when does his campaign book, The Audacity of Stealing Hope, come out?

  • DustBowlBlues

    Okay, listen up: Is everyone watching the Last Word without Lawrence O'Donnell? No? Good. Don't. If you are, turn to ABC. They're doing shit about the Royal wedding.

    Why? Just because. It has nothing to do with another okie being such an asshole it makes national news. No. Nothing. It didn't happen. Who you gonna' believe? Good old DustBowlBlues or the LSM? Quick! I think ABC's showing a drawing of Kate's dress with Haley's Comet in the background!

  • Madam Killjoy

    I'm delurking just to let y'all know that I'm upfisting your comments to offset the sad-pants downfisty babies who don't have the guts to actually post comments.
    Also too I haven't been active on this site in almost three months (reading along, upfisting, just not commenting) and I now find that some 'Lead Paint' wingnut asshole is following me, since three weeks ago. Really? What is wrong with these fucking people? (That is a rhetorical question.)

    • RavenRant

      He's following me, too. Little cowardly downfisting douche. (Him, not you!)

      • DustBowlBlues

        Who is he? I want to know if he's following me, which would make me feel really creepy.

        • ttommyunger

          Nice to be noticed, though.

          • RavenRant

            Nice to know that I have the power enrage some idiot mouthbreather enough to motivate him to while away his time clicking the downfist button, while never quite being able to summon the balls to join in the wonkette fray.

            Because, dumb as he is, he's smart enough to know he'd be eviscerated.

            Does his gutlessness gnaw away at him, do you think, or is he just dead inside?

          • ttommyunger

            'Perzackly!

        • RavenRant

          If you go to intensedebate.com and then click the 'following' link, it shows you who is following you.

          As for who he is, here's a sample from this pindick:
          "When they cut Medicare funding by $500 Billion, Obama and Dems killed many seniors. They exploit Gabby. Wankette bans diverse opinions."

          And another:
          "If New Orleans is the Chocolate City, then Bourbon Street is the Hershey Highway."

          So, a liar and a racist. And a pindick. In other words, exactly what you would have expected. Throw in 'closet case,' cuz, really, what are the odds?

          • Doktor Zoom

            Also changes names every so often, then drops everyone he was following, then re-adds. He seems to believe that the automatic "RighWingAsshole is now following you" email will sap our will to be communists. He is not the breitest bart there ever was.

          • RavenRant

            Seriously, are there any 'breit' barts?

            There is a commercial advantage to catering to the sub-dull normal set – there are so many of them.

          • unclejeems

            My, my. I'm just an occasional (though avid) Wonketteer, but I see that I, even harmless me, has a right-wing, wing-nut, mouth-breathing, diaper wetter for a follower. And according to IntenseDebate, my score with him is -75. Can that be right? I thought that I'd be in the triple digits negative by now. I'm going to have to post more.

            And by the way, fuck you Lead Paint, or whatever your current name is. Upfists for everybody here.

          • RavenRant

            I'm beginning to understand taking pride in negative p. Go for the triple digits, Uncle. You can do it, I believe in you!

          • Meh I recommend ignoring the tar…. oops asshat.

            Good catch! And I'll try to follow your advice.

    Good thing Red White and Blue symbolizes all that stuff he says it does. An orange, green and pink logo wouldn't quite have the same flare to it.

  • unclejeems

    Sacre bleu! Et rouge! Et blanc! Le Ron Paul, il est le grand rat de l'egout pluvial. Il est plein de miasmes putrides!

    Pardon my (bad) French.

  • No self-respecting paultard would know a person who could be described as a "her". Vagina-Americans are unAmerican.

    PURE HEARTY JUSTICE baby.

  • catholic4condom

    The Red White and Blue are going sideways. It's the Netherlands flag not French. Maybe he 's making a statement about the decriminalization of mar…wait…the blue is kinda light. Ohh, that's not the Netherlands flag it's the flag of Luxembourg. I have no idea what that means.

    I thought purple signified hardness…
