People are mocking the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for offering supporters bumper stickers with pretty uninspiring messaging.
In a fundraising email sent Wednesday, the DCCC asked its supporters to choose which bumper sticker the group should print next. However, people who got the email quickly began deriding the four choices and accused the DCCC of being unable to come up with compelling or unifying messaging. (Daily Caller)
The Progressive Voice had this to about the DCCC’s ‘Have You Seen The Other Guys’ slogan. “Are you kidding me!”, then wondering aloud, “.. you started brainstorming, and this was the best that you could possibly come up with?”
Within a few hours, disgruntled Dems and some critics from both sides of the aisle had taken to Twitter, calling the suggestions “embarrassingly bad,” reminiscent of satirical sign gags on The Simpsons (not in the good way), and arguing that they were a tone-deaf move representative of an out-of-touch Democratic Party.

The definition of insanity is sometimes described as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results. In the realm of politics, that form of insanity could very well be defined by the Democratic Party.
On Wednesday, Democrats triumphantly rolled out some possible new campaign slogans that might fairly be described as underwhelming. “I mean, have you seen the other guys?” calls out one potential bumper sticker — suggesting that its owner is unwilling to stand up for any specific beliefs, but believes it’s enough not to belong to the party of President Donald Trump.
