Even liberals are mocking the Democrats’ new sticker slogans
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sent out an email blast on Wednesday asking people to vote on a new slogan that they hope to print on stickers moving forward.
The choices for a new slogan included:
- “Resist Persist”
- “Democrats 2018: I Mean, Have You Seen The Other Guys?”
- “She Persisted We Resisted”
- “Make Congress Blue Again”
The slogans all appear to target voters not satisfied with President Donald Trump and attempting to tap into the grassroots resistance movement against the president that has been the source of numerous rallies, marches, and protests since he took office.

The Democrats have faced increased scrutiny this year for their reluctance or inability to effectively articulate their policy platform—and for losing several high-profile special elections that many hoped would serve as an early rebuke to Republicans, who currently hold majorities in both houses of Congress.
Needless to say, perhaps, the response to the possible DCCC slogans was not kind.
All of the stickers and slogans the DCCC released today suck because they're REACTIVE when they should be PROACTIVE.— Matt Drago (@DragodaDragon) July 5, 2017
I've flushed things down the toilet that would make better slogans, @dccc— Rogue Tars Account (@TarsTarkasnet) July 5, 2017
The new stickers are a great reminder of why it's better to give your money/time to campaigns directly rather than to the DCCC— Julia Jordan (@juliaraney8) July 5, 2017
Other people had fun Photoshopping the possible DCCC slogans.
Even the NRCC, the committee devoted to electing Republican members of the House of Representatives, got in on the mocking.
