Can You Spare a Catchphrase for the Tea Party?

The Tea Party has figured out their crazy and racist organization has a reputation for being crazy and racist! So they've opted to do a little re-branding.

Since 2010, self-identified Tea Party members have dropped from 24% of the electorate to just 8%. Suddenly realizing an urgent need for a makeover, the South Florida Tea Party announced this week that it’s changing its name to the “National Liberty Foundation” — all to distance itself from a the Tea Party brand. A brand that even the Palm Beach County Tea Party said was infused with too much “negative information” and laced with too many “racist, crazy” connotations.


They're going to need more than a name - they're going need a catchy tag line. An outside poll is asking what is should be:

- Our Blacks are Better Than Your Blacks?

- We'll Only Tax Your Nerves?

- 50,000 Wayne Newton Fans Can't be Wrong?

What catchphrase would you give them?

1. "...laced with too many “racist, crazy” connotations."

And by connotations, they mean "members".

10. At the moment the republican party has realised the importance of "image" change.....

Change a few names here or there. Toss a few bucks at Frank Luntz to create more acceptable Newspeek.
Replace some of the talking heads like Sarah Palin with fresh new talent.
There you have it. New "messaging" better "image"!
Throw in a little redistricting for good measure and you can be the same good old boys you always were.
Change the message, not the messenger.
If you spin it, they'll believe.

32. Fighting for the rich, even though we're poor. ...

Prisons, Wars, and Cruelty made America great! Let's keep all three!

Let's put the white back in White House.

Protecting freedom by killing democracy!

Fascist, Communist, and Islamicist: we don't know the difference!

Those slightly poorer than me are deadbeats!

Politicizing Christmas for no goddamned reason!

Science: contradicting God's holy word, which I have not read, since, well, I don't know when.

I ain't descended from no ape!

Supporting big coal and oil, because polar caps melt for no reason!

We're kind to out n****rs! S**cs, too! OTOH, A-rabs, are right out.

Protecting America from Sharia while imposing Christian theology since Reagan defeated the British!

35. Republican/Tea Party/National Liberty Foundation

I always just try to list all of their aliases so the reputation they have earned stays with them.

I also try to throw George W. Bush into the same paragraph or sentence. Again, so the Republican/Tea Party/whoever doesn't avoid its reputation.
