It’s time to lay off the RNC and their tech missteps, and lean on the Democrats for overplaying their hand on the Rush Limbaugh “failure” saga.

The “I’m Sorry, Rush” form letter was very funny, but the Rush Limbaugh billboard contest is pushing it, and the finalists were not super funny:

  • Hope and change cannot be Rush’d
  • Failure is not an option for America’s future
  • We can fix America, just don’t Rush it

Who’s writing this stuff, Bruce Villanch? We have some better suggestions:

That last one is a high-functioning Salman Rushdie joke. You see, that’s what Salman Rushdie’s ex-wife, Padma Lakshmi, says when she boots people off of Top Chef…eh, whatever.

The point is that humor is great, and needs to be re-injected into politics. But these slogans are the blandest, least ambitious selections the Dems could have dredged up. And the winner is not only boring, but clunky! It’s seven words, in past tense. Play to win, Democrats!
