And the winner of the DNC’s stick it to Rush Limbaugh Billboard Contest is…

How freaking lame is this?

More than 80,000 suggestions for an anti-Rush Limbaugh slogan were emailed to the Democratic National Committee in the past week. The DNC will announce today the winning slogan which will be placed on a billboard in the radio host’s hometown.

Jimmy Orr of the C.S. Monitor writes:

Setting a world record today for beating a dead horse, the Democratic National Committee will announce they’ve selected an anti-Rush Limbaugh slogan to be placed on a billboard in the radio host’s hometown.

The DNC began soliciting slogans a week ago in response to Limbaugh’s well-known statement that he wants President Obama to fail.

“If you’re anything like me, then you’ve had the urge to talk back to a right-wing talk radio host more than a few times. Now you can,” reads an email blast from the executive director of the DNC. “Can you help us come up with a message for Rush that we’ll place on a billboard right in his hometown?”

How can Rush compete with such brilliantly conceived brainstorms thought-showers?  If I may use a different animal analogy than a “dead horse”, Rush will cower like a beaten dog with his tail beneath his legs as he is confronted with this devastating Billboard message, with the winning slogan (drum roll, please):

“Americans didn’t vote for a Rush to failure.”

Really? Coulda fooled me.  That may or may not have been their intention, but I think it’s safe to say that things aren’t working out too well in the competency department for Obama.  I’m just sad that I didn’t get to participate in this contest, cause I would have submitted this slogan from James “I hope Bush fails” Carville:

"Use everything as an excuse to dig, drill, and burn."

    I’m the one who submitted the “FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION FOR AMERICA’S FUTURE” line, because I felt that it would help resonate with the Floridians, who no doubt are fond of NASA. I also wanted to at least try to use my brain and think of something more original than some grade-school pun with “Rush” hamfistedly shoved into it.

    I was surprised and hopeful when I learned that my slogan made it into the top 5. I mean, the other four were just lame “Rush” puns, right?

    And then this happened.


    The sting of losing doesn’t hurt so much when I take into account thatt he DNC also was a diehard Hillary backer during the ’08 campaign, even when it became obvious to everyone else that Obama was the one that we wanted to win the nomination.

    Yeahyeah. Sour grapes. W/E

    Failure is not an option for America’s future. That’s a good slogan. Why is it you support Obama again?
