OMG! The Democrats Have Totally Rebranded and Stuff
Hey, conservatives! Are you shaking in your stylish, made-from-the-skin-of-poor-people boots yet? Well, you should be! Yesterday, the Democratic Party said it had a big announcement. Today, the big news was finally revealed, and it’s this:

It does seem to be the pinnacle of their intellectual achievement for the week, though. When I visited their official site, I found these items helpfully displayed halfway down the page.
All in all, I’m going to have to give the new “Democratic” look a
