Let's All Point And Laugh At The Stupid Ugly Trump-Pence Logo!
It's actually really irritating, no matter how it's packaged
One thing Donald Trump always seemed to understand was branding -- getting the Trump name in gold on every goddamned flat surface available. Very classy. Even those stupid "Make America Great Again" hats are strangely iconic, no matter that they're destined to be as ubiquitous at yard sales in 2017 as Bigmouth Billy Bass singing fish plaques. But this logo for the TrumPence campaign?
It's just fucking ridiculous. Happily, the internet makes ridicule easy! The shaft of the T penetrating the hole in the P -- it almost seemed to make people think maybe the logo was suggesting something. And of course it is: Donald Trump is clearly the top, and Mike Pence the bottom.

Our favorite of the bunch:
Finally, we offer this, should the Trump/Pence campaign need to visit Japan to yell at them about auto exports:
Doktor Zoom's real name is Marty Kelley, and he lives in the wilds of Boise, Idaho. He is not a medical doctor, but does have a real PhD in Rhetoric. You should definitely donate some money to this little mommyblog where he has finally found acceptance and cat pictures. He is on maternity leave until 2033. Here is his Twitter, also. His quest to avoid prolixity is not going so great.
