1. I vote dollar sign
The Rethugs are so obsessed with money that they'll even cut food stamps just so they can "trim the fat". What bastards...

6. I was thinking of having a Potriat of Cowboy Dubya Milking a Cow
The cow would represent the middle class and Dubya is milking it dry. But I didnt think the Bushies would get it.

The middle-class is being sucked up in this vacuum.

I actually know people who didn't realize that GOP was the same as Republican.
Seriously.

7.  I keep thinking that gop was meant as some kind of mind game
Edited on Fri Jan-13-06 02:30 AM by DanCa
so that people would associate gop as being god. I got to stop watching they live.

13. I vote for a dollar sign with a
coat hanger hung from the loop at the bottom. May as well represent both major facets of the party - greedy bastards who put corporate profit above human life and morons eager to endanger women under the guise of being "pro-life."

However, I despise repukes so much that I think the most apt symbol to represent them would be a big, disgusting, stinking turd.

17. Touche.
Edited on Fri Jan-13-06 02:50 AM by LibDemAlways
Sen George Allen used to display a noose in his office. Maybe he'd like to donate it toward a lifesize model of the new symbol when it's unveiled. Getting a willing African American to participate might be a bit harder, but since most repukes proclaim, "Some of my best friends are black," I'm sure they'll try to coerce someone - or maybe Condi or Colin will volunteer out of a sense of loyalty

23. Personally, I'd pick a weasel for them
I'd pick a weasel for their new symbol, however if *they* were actually going to pick a new symbol for themselves, I'm sure they would open it up to the highest corporate bidder. As a result, the Wal-Mart Smiley face would probably be their new logo...er, symbol.

24. Big Brass Balls
I was going to suggest a big penis, cause there's no end to those pricks...and makes up for the lack of a pair by many Democrats over the past 5 years.

34. Anything but a chicken hawk.
The "chicken hawk" is a red-tailed hawk, and common where I've lived my life. They are the largest, and most widespread hawk in our country, and I love them. While they will happily prey on my chickens, given the chance, they spend most of their time on rodents and snakes. I appreciate their efforts to keep the rodent population in check, myself. I'd hate to see their wild beauty and fierce spirit stained by that kind of association.

If you want an animal symbol for the republican party, I'd offer up these choices:

hyena
cockroach
fire ant
housefly

61. actually, TV's do us a great service, by eating the carrion
and other road kill so often caused by our 'road hogs'- And when attacked their defense,- to vomit up the contents of their last meal on any animal that threatens them. (pretty effective I'm told)

(one of my sons did a report on them- ugly as all get out, and reminders of death and rot, but actually one of our more honorable big birds)

Peace-
