Looks like Andrei Cherny has designed a new Democratic party logo. I guess this isn't the year to have the traditional Democratic Donkey symbol on your signs. In fact, the word "Democrat" doesn't appear at all. (Nice Union label though.)
Actually, this is not only the year in which Democrats hide their party's logo, but also the year in which they actively embrace Republican themes--at least on their signs any way. So Cherny is "The Taxpayer's Bulldog." Give me a break.
Cherny isn't just a Democrat, he's a leftist. So what does he think of the Bush tax cuts? Where does he stand on the Laffer Curve? What sort of advocacy is he planning to do for taxpayers? How about repealing the estate tax? How about indexing the Capital Gains tax for inflation? How about eliminating double taxation on corporate earnings? Hmm, I think those would be hard sells for our "Taxpayer Bulldog."
Maybe he means that, while he doesn't want to actually lower taxes, he wants to protect the taxpayer's money. Nope. Cherny wants to change the rules so that the Treasurer can invest in risky investments like local bio tech companies--turning the Treasurer's office into quasi venture capital fund. Is that what he means by "Taxpayer's Bulldog"? Higher taxes and more risk?
Cherny should just be honest and stick to traditional leftist themes, you know like his opposition to the balanced budget amendment.
Maybe Cherny could save some words and make a simple sign that's accurate--he could cross out the rest of the slogan and just leave the word "Bull."
